Economic Forum Speakers Optimistic About 2014

By Jeff Ostrowski – Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
WEST PALM BEACH —

Even after U.S. stocks turned in their best year since the 1990s, two investment strategists say the economy and stock market are primed to keep rising this year. Tepid consumer confidence, cautious banks and weak hiring have all created “room to run,” said Charles White, an executive managing director at investment bank Sterne, Agee & Leach of Birmingham, Ala.

“There’s a lot of what we call dry powder in the economy right now,” White said Tuesday during a presentation to the Economic Forum of Palm Beach County.

“We Got Through the Tunnel, But Where is the Light?”

We know where we have been, but where do we go from here? A perspective of interest rates and the economic cycles from a well known a Wall Street veteran with Sterne Agee which was founded in 1901 and remains one of the few privately-owned brokerage firms in the country.

Many thanks to Corporate Member Russell Greene, President & CEO of Grand Bank & Trust of Florida, for arranging this program.
