2016 began poorly
with the S&P 500
experiencing its
worst start to any
year due to concerns
over global economic
growth.
But, improved
corporate earnings,
rebounding energy
prices, and renewed
optimism about the
U.S./global economy
helped push markets
higher over the
course of the year.

Volatility Is a Common
Occurrence in Investing
While volatility
can put investors
on edge, it is a
normal part of
investing.
Over the past 35
years, the S&P 500

intra-year decline,
yet calendar year

still ended
positive.

On average, expansions last about
47 months, and recessions last
about 15.
Since July 2009, our economic
expansion has lasted 90 months
(or 7.5 years), but much of the
growth has been measured. Only
recently have we started to see
investors becoming more confident
and less fearful since the Great
Recession.
While 7.5 years may seem like a
long time, the United States has
experienced an expansion lasting
10 years.

The current U.S. expansion
continues to show that age is
only a number.
Including the U.S., several
countries have enjoyed very
long expansions in the past.
Although we are likely closer
to the end of this cycle than
the beginning and political
uncertainty remains, there
are few signs of imbalances
building in the economy or
reason to believe the
expansion can’t continue.

In November, the U.S.
unemployment rate hit
4.6%, indicating that
unemployment has moved
into ‘full employment’
territory.
Wages are beginning to
show improvement with
wage gains widespread

could boost consumer
spending in 2017.

While investor
concern over the
timing of the first
rate hike led to
market volatility,
the rate increases
should not be
feared.
Instead, they
should be viewed as
a sign of a
strengthening
economy. Fidelity Investments proprietary analysis of historical asset class total returns, using data from indices from: Barclays, Fidelity Investments,

At its December meeting,
the Fed revised its
outlook for 2017 rate
hikes from two (2) to
three (3), leading to a
year-end forecast of 1.4%.
The market continues to
be less aggressive in its

When 10-year treasury
yields are below 5%,
rising rates have
historically been
associated with rising
stock prices.
This bodes well for
investors in 2017.

The recent rise in
interest rates seemed
to catch many
investors off-guard.
However, the move
was not unusual in the
context of the current
recovery or over longer
time periods.
It’s important to
remember that,
despite the recent rise,
interest rates remain
near historic lows.

Executive Presentation | June 2011
• Economic expansion is showing some
renewed momentum coming into
2017
• Growth is expected to be supported
more by fiscal policy as monetary
stimulus is pulled back
• Corporate profits have the potential
to show high single digit
improvement over 2016 helped by
energy, a reasonably stable dollar,
and potential governmental
initiatives
• P/E multiples may be negatively
impacted by rising rates and higher
inflation
• U.S. cannot grow in a vacuum and
requires a stable-to-accelerating
global economy
• Overall, expect measured growth in
U.S. equities
Expect Another Year of Positive
Returns in U.S. Equities
Lorem Ipsum Vestibulum et

• Eurozone economies are gaining
momentum despite political
headwinds
• Japan could benefit from a weak yen
and supportive Abenomics
• A “hard” Brexit will likely be pursued
but exit and trade negotiations will
take years
• Valuations of Developed Market
stocks look cheaper than the U.S.-
don’t avoid them due to past
disappointment
This Could Be the Year When
International Stocks Shine
Lorem Ipsum Vestibulum et

• China has shown improvement but
remains a wild card as the Central
Government targets 6.5%-7% while
simultaneously reducing leverage
• Investor confidence in emerging
economies has improved notably since
1Q16. Contributing factors include
perceived stabilization in China, some
recovery in commodity prices, and
accommodative policies by major
central banks
• Many emerging market sovereign
balance sheets have improved
• Rising U.S. interest rates coupled with
a strong dollar could be a headwind
for emerging markets
• Be cautious with emerging market
investments
Emerging Markets Have Good
Valuations But Take Caution

• The Fed believes that the
upside risks to their outlook
have increased
• The Fed will likely raise rates
three times in 2017, but will
remain data dependent
• Bonds remain a stabilizing
element of a diversified
portfolio.
• Own some shorter duration
bonds alongside core holdings
as defensive strategy. Active
sector allocation can mute the
risk of inflation

Since July 2009, our economic expansion has lasted 90 months (or 7.5 years), but much of the growth has been measured. Only recently have we started to see investors becoming more confident and less fearful since the Great Recession. While 7.5 years may seem like a long time, the United States has experienced an expansion lasting 10 years. 1900 Our Current Expansion Has Lasted 90 Months

Including the U.S., several countries have enjoyed very long expansions in the past. Although we are likely closer to the end of this cycle than the beginning and political uncertainty remains, there are few signs of imbalances building in the economy or reason to believe the expansion can’t continue.
