What’s ahead? Market and economic outlook for the second half of 2015

Dollar Clock

It was great taking part last month in Jim Lange’s Money Hour radio segment, where I shared my thoughts on the second half of 2015, among other topics.

For the remainder of 2015, I see U.S. real GDP growth of about three percent. While first quarter numbers weren’t promising, we see things gradually getting better for the remainder of the year. And since our year-end prediction for the S&P 500 has already been surpassed, we don’t have great expectations for the rest of the year for returns from US stocks.

I also offered my thoughts on inflation, the impact of the 2016 election, interest rates and more.
