DA Davidson's Chief Investment Strategist, Fred Dickson, will give his economic outlook at the WYO Theater today, his 10th annual in Sheridan.
Dickson was host Kim Love's guest on Public Pulse Tuesday; he shared his opinion on the direction of the economy in 2012.
Dickson adds one more factor that may speed up economic growth this year.
He says there are 4 E's that will play into the economic forecast for the U.S. in 2012: European markets; the economy; employment; and the election.
Dickson says forecasting employment numbers to drop down to 7% by election day may be ambitious. He says that it's more realistic to expect 8.4 to 8.5% by the end of the year, taking into account the overall job growth and how many people are leaving the workforce.
The presentation begins with refreshments at 4:30 pm; Dickson's talk should start at 5. It is free and open to anyone.
