Our January 2010 Market Forecast Project

by: Value Expectations

Money managers are always looking for an advantage to help them better understand the market and get an edge in their stock selection process. The Applied Finance Group's (AFG’s) Market Forecast Project (MFP) has served that purpose for over 300 investment professionals that participate, and it continues to grow. In our 6th issue of the MFP we have identified the favorite long and short equity ideas from participants, trends in the movements of investor sentiment over the last 6 surveys, as well as other key topics affecting the economy and the markets.

This month’s survey contains questions on topics such as:

• How many seats will change in the House of Representatives in the 2010 election from (D) to (R)?

• What are investor’s Stock Market and Economy predictions for 2010?

• Is the current stock market fundamentally undervalued, fairly valued, or overvalued?

• Best performing BRIC of 2010?
