Chair: Charlotte Chamberlain, CFA
Portfolio Management Group Event
Nick Raich, CEO and Founder of The Earnings Scout, will return to CFALA to present the sequel to his June 2012 presentation on the global sovereign debt crisis. Last year, Raich accurately depicted the direction of corporate profits based on how policy makers were dealing with the crisis. He highlighted that austerity in the developed world was going to adversely impact emerging markets. Furthermore, based on the output of his proprietary earnings algorithm model, he warned that despite having positive earnings estimate revisions at the time, Apple’s stock price was at serious risk for a pull back. In “The Global Sovereign Debt Crisis Part 2: Merkel’s Revenge,” Raich will once again provide his eagle-eyed views on earnings. He will explain how the large data service providers and most Wall Street strategists that discuss earnings barely scratch the surface for the type of analysis that is needed to consistently outperform. Most importantly, Raich will emphasize actionable ideas on where he expects the best and worst trends to occur in the second half of 2013.
