Outlook October 2018
Economic Outlook, October 2018

Economic fundamentals are encouraging but market volatility is likely to intensify. The U.S. economy looks set to continue on its growth trajectory for the next year, if not longer, and we expect growth outside the U.S. to accelerate. Even so, rising interest rates in the U.S., midterms and geopolitical pressures will contribute to elevated levels of market turbulence. The Calamos Investment Committee discusses how our teams are navigating the crosscurrents.

Economic Outlook, July 2018

Fears of an imminent U.S. recession are premature; tax policy and a more business-friendly regulatory environment provide long-term catalysts for the economy. Although conditions outside the U.S. are less encouraging, positive global growth should continue, albeit with growing divergence among countries. The need for active risk management has increased at this point of the economic cycle, and we believe the Calamos portfolios are well positioned.

Economic Outlook, January 2018

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.
