CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--James McDonald, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Hercules Investments, a Los Angeles-based Registered Investment Advisor, is hosting a virtual event, ‘Preparing Investment Portfolios for a 2021 Stock Market Crash,’ on Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 3pm EST.
McDonald will discuss why investors should be prepared for a looming 2021 stock market crash, after an unprecedented stock market surge since the March 2020 Covid-19-driven stock market lows. In this virtual event, McDonald shares:
- Why the markets are too optimistic about the Covid-19 vaccine
- The dangers of too much fiscal and monetary stimulus
- Strategies to profit from a stock market decline
- Why volatility as an asset class is key for 2021
“It’s important for investors to be prepared for stock market volatility, as the economic outlook remains fragile in 2021,” McDonald said. “Covid-19 continues to spread rapidly and the vaccine rollout has been slower-than-expected, which is a worrisome combination for the economy and the stock market.”
The discussion will be streamed via Zoom at this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_guvDkdmgQcy4-HcSuTnb1Q
McDonald will also be speaking at The Executives’ Club of Chicago’s 2021 Annual Economic Outlook virtual event on January 14.
