NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In December, S&P Capital IQ Equity Strategy upgraded its view on the Industrials Sector to "Overweight" from "Marketweight," citing expected sales benefits from rising emerging market exposure, a steady U.S. recovery, and durable stabilization in Chinese economic growth. With this in mind, S&P Capital IQ will be hosting an industrials-themed ETF Analyst Hour Webinar on Wednesday, January 16th at 4 PM Eastern Standard Time. Titled "Why We Feel The Time Is Now For Industrials: Sector Update & ETF Takeaways," the webinar will feature comments from Michael Jaffe and Jim Corridore, members of S&P Capital IQ's Industrials Sector equity research team, who will provide an overview of the sector and the sub-industries and companies they view as being most promising. Director of ETF Research Todd Rosenbluth will then provide a close look at several Industrials ETFs using the approach to ETF research and analysis that he helped to develop. This webinar is the latest in S&P Capital IQ's monthly ETF Analyst Hour series, and one hour of CFP continuing education credit is available to attendees.
