NEW YORK, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Seasoned investors and advisors are used to stock market volatility, but 2010 has brought new meaning to volatility as there have been many large intra-day swings this year.  The possibility of sovereign defaults, double dip recession, a jobless recovery, and higher interest rates are just some of the headwinds facing equity investors.  Standard & Poor's Equity Research Services' leading economic and investment strategists will address these issues and answer the questions listed below in this Equity Research webinar.  S&P Equity Research also announced its schedule of webinars for the remainder of 2010:  September 28, and December 15.  

  • When will the Federal Reserve raise interest rates?
  • What are the chances of a double dip recession?
  • Could challenges in the eurozone derail the U.S. recovery?
  • Will the U.S. recovery continue after the government stimulus fades?
  • Which consistent EPS and dividend growers offer a high yield and favorable investment outlooks by S&P equity analysts?  
  • What can we look for once the "Four-Year Cycle Low" has run its course?
  • In the wake of recent volatility, what are the best overseas buying opportunities?
  • How has the euro's sharp decline impacted U.S. investor returns in international stocks?
  • Is the bull market over?
