Presented by

Robert Quinn, Chief European Equity Strategist, Standard & Poor's

About this talk

After surviving the bitterest of winters, it feels like one's made it back to the cabin after collecting firewood but, now inside, one has to wait for the wood to dry out before the fire takes hold. Elevated fears of European sovereign credit risk coupled with a weak economic recovery have led many to question the attractiveness of equities as an asset class. Our corollary is that equities have historically performed moderately well during periods of retrenching fiscal policy, and incidences of double-dip recessions are the exception not the norm.
