“There is great fundamental support for owning equities right now. The earnings environment looks good. The economic environment looks good, particularly here in the fourth quarter. We just want to be careful about not adding significant risk or cyclicality to portfolios next year, as we head into this more normal or modest growth environment here in the U.S.”—Emily R. Roland, CIMA, Co-Chief Investment Strategist, John Hancock Investment Management
