The year 2011 offers a trio of three-year milestones: 1) In January, President Obama begins his third year in office, 2) In March, the S&P 500 starts the third year of this bull market, and 3) In June, the U.S. economy enters the third year of recovery. The S&P 500 has risen an average of 17% in the third year of a president’s term in office since 1945, while bull markets and economic expansions have historically lasted an average of more than four years each. Will the economy, market and administration wind down or crank up? Come hear Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist of Standard & Poor’s Equity Research, discuss what S&P economists, strategists and analysts think lies ahead for the coming year. Will it glitter like gold, or go up in smoke? Register
