Alec Young, the International Equity Strategist for Standard & Poor's, joins Jordan Kimmel to discuss his latest market call. Alec is reminding us about the headwinds facing the markets and worldwide economy, the rising prices of commodities and political instability- and reminding of the importance of dividends in the total return expected in the stock market.
Looking at the S&P international Dividend Opportunities Index, Alec is reminding us to follow the leaders and that to achieve long term returns, reducing volatility and bringing in income could be a safer rotation now that we are in the third year of a global bull market.
