But those S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats have also outperformed in the quarter-to-date rally.

Minisode - Investing in the Post-Pandemic Economy
The three-decade bull market in bonds may finally be over. Since the start of this year, the yield on the 10-year Treasury bond has risen 70 basis points. Since its low in August of last year, it has risen 111 basis points. The fear of inflation has been a key driver, fueled by a rapidly rising federal deficit and stimulus checks that will soon be in the wallets of American consumers. Here to discuss what that means for advisors and more importantly for your clients’ portfolios is Simeon Hyman of ProShares.

What’s ahead for post-election markets?
How will markets react to a Democratic sweep? A Republican resurgence? A contested result? In an already tumultuous year, a presidential election adds another layer of uncertainty, and typically, volatility rises in the months leading up to voting day. This year, with a pandemic in full swing, unemployment historically high, and economic growth at a standstill, the stakes are especially high. The two candidates have vastly different visions about the role of government, tax law, trade, and regulation, which may affect market performance going forward.
To help investors prepare, we asked Stephen Gallagher, the U.S. chief economist and head of research at Societe Generale to join us to discuss:
- How have presidential politics historically affected the economy—and what’s different this year.
- What’s ahead for stock investing? Where can investors turn outside growth and tech stocks??
- An overview of dividend growth strategies and why they may offer a compelling alternative in challenging market environments.
Impeachment, a Coming Election, and a Near-Record Market Rally: What Could it Mean for 2020?
As Mark Twain once said, history never repeats itself, but it does often rhyme. The House vote to impeach President Trump coming in mid-December of 2019 certainly feels like a couplet with the Clinton impeachment, which occurred in mid-December 21 years ago. Indeed, there are similarities, but also key distinctions.
Discover the Investment Opportunities in Global Infrastructure
Sweeping changes in demographics, consumer behavior and technology have created an ever-increasing need for global infrastructure development. In fact, it’s estimated that over $91 trillion must be spent on global infrastructure by 2040. And just to keep pace with projected growth, global spending on roads needs to reach $900 billion per year. How can financial advisors turn these needs into an opportunity that can help diversify equity portfolios?
Join Bob Huebscher from Advisor Perspectives and experts from ProShares for an interactive panel to discuss:
- The potential to benefit from transformative changes in global infrastructure spending, and why it’s critical to target “pure play” owner-operators of infrastructure assets.
- How “pure play” companies are near monopolies in infrastructure, with stable, predictable cash flows and less sensitivity to economic cycles.
- Using the historically stable characteristics of global infrastructure companies to help build better, more durable portfolios.
