T. Rowe Price Investment And Economic Outlook: The Next Five Years Won't Look Like The Last Five

BALTIMORE, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Five years after being roiled by the onset of a financial crisis, the global investment environment appears to be approaching an inflection point.  This view was discussed by T. Rowe Price (Nasdaq: TROW) investment professionals who shared their thoughts today at the company's annual Investment and Economic Outlook press briefing in New York City.  T. Rowe Price has conducted an outlook briefing for financial journalists for more than 30 consecutive years.

The briefing's overriding theme for 2014:  Be careful.  Many financial markets around the world have been in bull market territory since the nadir of the crisis in March 2009.  U.S. stocks are up more than 160% off of their lows in 2009 [1] , while non-U.S. stocks are up more than 107% [2] .  For most of this time, markets have climbed a "wall of worry" and many investors stayed on the sidelines.  Recently, however, money has begun to move into riskier asset classes.  While attractive investing opportunities continue to exist in many global financial markets, T. Rowe Price believes that investors should temper their expectations as the strong performance in many of these markets over the last five years is unlikely to be matched during the next five years. 

More information on the T. Rowe Price 2014 Investment and Economic Outlook press briefing, including speaker biographies and presentations, can be found at www.troweprice.com/pressbriefing.  Additional content from the briefing will be posted to this site in the coming days.

Investment and Economic Observations

The U.S. economy and many other economies around the world are poised to gain traction in 2014, albeit in a slower-growth mode than they enjoyed before the crisis began.  Tapering from the U.S. Federal Reserve is coming in the next three to six months, and could lead to volatile conditions in global equity and fixed income markets.  With unemployment still high in the U.S. and inflation pressures muted, the pace of monetary policy adjustment is likely to be gradual.
