Brian Rogers: Our worst-case scenario calls for moderate stock market gains during the next 12 months

January 24, 2006

"Globalization, competition, and high productivity growth are restraining inflation, which reduces pressure on the Federal Reserve to raise short-term rates much higher. Our worst-case scenario calls for moderate stock market gains during the next 12 months, although significant corporate liquidity could set the stage for better performance than we saw in 2005. We expect companies to increase their dividend payments in 2006 and merger and acquisition activity to remain vigorous, which could provide additional ballast for stocks. As always, we will focus on reasonably valued stocks with relatively high dividend yields in our ongoing effort to provide value for our investors."
