The Innovation Premium: Explaining Today’s Binary Equity Market

Event Description

The Innovation Premium: Explaining Today’s Binary Equity Market

12:00 PM Wednesday July, 15th

Please join Brian Foerster, CFA, Investment Strategist, Lord Abbett, to discuss how in this most recent downturn, the market has sharply differentiated between innovative secular growers versus economically sensitive, cyclical names. More specifically, virtual empowerment stocks, which are benefiting from social distancing, have distinguished themselves from those businesses that are dependent upon proximity to others. We have been excited about the technological revolution for decades, and now, given the dramatic March pullback, the conversation is more topical than ever.
