Outlook 2019 fundamentals

Topic of seminar sponsored by Citizens National Bank

Citizens Wealth Management Group (CWMG) will host a series of free seminars titled “Outlook 2019 Fundamental: How to Focus on What Really Matters in the Markets.” 

Deborah Boisselle, VP Investments, will present the seminar. “After nearly 10 years of witnessing the U.S. economy and stock market recover – and thrive – investors are starting to wonder if we’ve seen all this expansion and bull market have to offer. At LPL Research, we believe there’s more room to run, and don’t expect an impending recession or bear market in 2019.”
