In 2018, many positive economic tailwinds set the stage for additional upside in stocks and other equity-sensitive assets, including convertible securities and high yield bonds. However, investors should not be surprised if volatility begins a slow return to its longer-term trend.
As synchronized global growth continues and reflationary tailwinds strengthen, we see additional upside in the global business cycle and in turn, for equities, convertible securities, and select areas of the credit markets.
We see a favorable backdrop for equities and convertible securities through the remainder of the year, although late-cycle pressures may increase going into 2018.

As U.S. equity markets soar, the Calamos Investment Committee considers the risks and opportunities in the global financial markets.

We remain positive about opportunities in growth equities and convertibles but expect volatility to remain elevated amid fiscal and monetary policy uncertainties.
