PARSIPPANY, N.J., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hennion & Walsh has released their Winter 2016 Market Outlook (link here). "The third quarter started with rapid gains in stocks prices as concerns over Brexit faded," said Kevin Mahn, Chief Investment Officer at Hennion & Walsh Asset Management. "Perhaps this could be the calm before the storm though as the fourth quarter is setting up to be a quite eventful and uncertain period."
Despite all of the uncertainty in the minds of many investors with respect to the path of interest rate hikes in the U.S., the impact of Brexit on England, Europe and the rest of the global economy and the outcome of the upcoming presidential election in the U.S., one thing remains certain thus far in 2016 – market leadership continues to change and evolve.
"It may benefit investors to consider these areas of changing market leadership as part of their portfolio strategy," said Richard Hennion, Partner of Hennion & Walsh.
Hennion & Walsh believes there are five areas that will likely influence economic and market performance for the remainder of 2016:
- Interest Rates
- U.S. Presidential Election
Hennion & Walsh continues to believe that asset allocation decisions can be critical to the long-term success of an investment portfolio. "Asset allocation remains of the utmost importance, from our point of view, and should always be constructed in accordance with one's investment objectives, investment timeframe and tolerance for risk" said Bill Walsh, President of Hennion & Walsh.
