With their first investment commentary of 2014, money manager Calamos Investments remains cautiously optimistic for the global economy and believes the U.S. is in a secular bull market.
From the commentary: "Entering 2014, we expect a good year for global equity and convertible markets overall. The major global economies look positioned to show faster growth, although this positive global synchronization is occurring at varying rates and supported by diverging policies. Historically, the conditions we see today have benefited equities and convertibles, especially cyclical growth opportunities. More importantly, we are encouraged by the emergence of more fundamentally driven markets across asset classes and believe that our active approach is well suited to this environment."
