On Wednesday January 30, 2008 I will be hosting the 3rd annual Jim and Judy O’Brien Financial Markets and Economic Colloquium at Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business in South Orange, New Jersey.
This year we will kick off the colloquium at 4:30 PM with a student research presentation reviewing investment opportunities associated with potential election outcomes. The Stillman School of Business is the twice reigning NYSSA Challenge Champions. Following that presentation our panel of market experts will discuss their thoughts on the economy and financial markets for the year ahead. At last year's colloquiuim we adeptly pointed out the risks inherent in the credit markets and identified many individual stock opportunities as well.
This year’s panel includes Doug Kass of Seabreeze Partners; Tony Dwyer, Equity Market Strategist, FTN Midwest Securities: Gregory Peters, Morgan Stanley’s Chief U.S. Credit Strategist and Director of Global Fixed Income Research & Economics; Brian Reynolds, Chief Market Strategist of M.S. Howell & Co.; Cody Willard, host of Fox Business News’ Happy Hour; and, myself, Scott Rothbort.
The best news is that this is all free. The Stillman School of Business is making this event open to the public. Please mark your calendar now and I hope to see you at this great event. Parking is free and directions are available on the Seton Hall website.
