The specter of rising interest rates and growing inflationary concerns has some investors seeing the potential for headwinds in the markets. But unlike bonds, stocks often rise in value in these conditions. Now may be the time to reexamine your portfolio and your strategies for rising rates.
Join ProShares' Simeon Hyman, Kieran Kirwan and Troy Goldstein for an important webcast to discuss:
- The big picture on interest rates: what forces are at work and what’s in the forecast?
- Why rising interest rates don’t always mean poor equity performance. Stocks have often performed well when interest rates have risen, particularly from low rate levels.
- How dividend growth strategies focused on the longest records of dividend growth may be an all-weather approach; they have outperformed high yield-oriented dividend strategies in a variety of rate environments.
- Ways to find income. A favorable by-product of dividend growth strategies is that they have delivered income growth over time, while fixed income investments have not.
