The Double Dip in Pessimism

10/18/2010
Looking back at August, there is no doubt that we experienced a double dip in pessimism. But I believe that bubble of pessimism is gradually deflating. In this world of acknowledged slow growth, void of any conventional means to stimulate growth, it will be very challenging to create alpha. Investors must be prepared to position themselves in front of the tailwinds that can best help them navigate the uncertainty ahead. For more information on those tailwinds, please click here for my quarterly commentary, The Double Dip of Pessimism.
