John Calamos Releases July Economic Outlook

July 16, 2019

NAPERVILLE, IL – In an environment characterized by slow growth but a low probability of near-term recession, the case remains strong for U.S. growth companies, according to Greek-American businessman and philanthropist John P. Calamos, Sr., founder, chairman and chief investment officer of Calamos Investments, in the firm’s July Economic Outlook.

Economic conditions outside the U.S., according to Calamos, have been more tepid, as trade issues between the U.S. and China have had a negative effect on global business.

“Reflecting our outlook that volatility will rise as the economy continues through its cycle, we believe investors will be served by strategies that provide risk-managed equity exposure, such as convertible securities,” said Calamos.
