Where Lombardi Analyst Mitchell Clark Says Investors Should Focus in 2015 for Safest, Best Returns

To know where the markets are heading, you need to know where they’re coming from, so says lead analyst for Lombardi Publishing Corp. Mitchell Clark, B.Comm. Looking to the past, Mitchell is of the belief that the bull stock market we’re currently in began in January 2013—but that market is coming to a slowdown. As Mitchell puts it, we’re already up, so investors can expect virtually nothing this year. Luckily, certainty (despite weak oil prices) and an accommodating Fed are propping up the U.S. stock market. But while U.S. equities may be the place to be in 2015, investors have to remember that there will be little growth and likely some choppiness ahead—so choose your stocks wisely. Watch the video to find out what stocks Mitchell thinks are your best bet in 2015.
