Professor good morning and welcome to the show. It. Pretty good year for stocks in 2012 does not affect better than what I expected -- looks like the -- will finish up with the S&P up fifteen maybe 16%. What are your stock market predictions for the year 2013. Well we're looking for a better year in 2013. Well we Pincus did. Investors are always been in particular around now positioning their their money to take advantage of what they think is gonna happen. And markets reflect then. Sort of investor expectations. And although we saw. A drop in. November. We brought covered and that trajectory. Looks good sport 2013. Based on what what is that you see that makes you feel that stocks are gonna perform well in 2013. Well I think -- investors in general are cautiously optimistic. You know it could be a lot worse we're we're hearing all kinds of terrible things are gonna happen the Euro was gonna collapse we're gonna go off the fiscal cliff. And it it investors truly shared those expectations. I think the market would be down and and yet despite. Dip in November oh yeah we're headed up and that makes me optimistic for 2013. A booking ads areas watch and a story in today's Wall Street Journal. Canada had to unload some oil and they did so for about fifty bucks a barrel and I'm I'm reading reports about. Commodity prices being soft all over what is your prediction for the energy -- been a great place to invest since 2009. How's it going to be for 2013. But we're talking now about the US becoming. Energy independence sometime in in the reasonable future what that came changer daddy has. Problem worried about OPEC and oil embargoes to being in oil exporter. That really I think is helping -- market understand. Future is not gonna look like the past. On the energy side at least. But can you make money and energy stocks professor. -- -- I don't think so I think that the coal energy companies are gonna have a hard time adopting. And it ended the new technology and it in adapting to a new world order. Greta remember that not only are they producing energy that states but there embedded worldwide. In a lot took a lot of David keep insurers. A traditional oil extraction and that kind of thing with that is probably -- it changed pretty dramatically. Can they adapt. That social work. -- -- -- -- let me ask you about financial stocks very quietly Bank of America has risen from. In -- right around five dollars a share twelve months ago. They're now a -- I looked at them earlier today. Their eleven dollars and change per share our financial stocks or is this it is this a phenomena and relegated just a Bank of America or financial stocks going to recover in next year. I think financial stocks are probably gonna be a pretty good place to be I mean how much worse could it be Bank of America. -- -- homers this year and that that almost boggles the imagination. Did did he is -- massive financial institution with. Pretty good management now they've got a lot of problems but I think what's happened is that market has digested those problem instead well. It just not gonna get a whole lot worse than he has so the only direction that financial stocks can go is up. That the caution that I would have there is that we still don't know. The public stand. Mortgage crisis that the foreclosure. Overhang is out there can't we've been reading recently about how. The FHA has got all kind of problem that's probably didn't need a bailout. But frankly that's old news and I think. Financial institutions. Although. Highly regulated and tightly constrained. Can still managed to do fairly well in -- market which is gently rising. And an economic environment which is making progress. Nothing to write home about yet but. Is gonna get slowly better throughout 2013. Very -- law professor thank you very much for your time we appreciate it. Well I hope this all comes I would have been happy new. You to their Christmas.
