2011 Was Worse Than You Thought, 2012 Will Be Better Than You Think

Investors, both here and abroad, are feeling apprehensive about 2011, and for good reason.  Volatility, the European bank crisis, plenty of uncertainty.  And while things look bad, in fact, if you step back, worldwide they are worse than the U.S. stock market might suggest.  In fact, this year the U.S. stock market was the least-worst of asset classes.  Worldwide, the average risk market was down 15%.  But next year will be better than you think, as expectations are just too low, which should allow returns to be higher.  Join me for a few minutes as I provide a framework for viewing 2011, as well as give some reasons why 2012 will be an improvement.
