 A calendar-year forecast for 2017 is even more difficult than usual because of the uncertainties accompanying the new regime in Washington
 Proposed tax reform, deregulation and fiscal stimulus could be good for the economy
 Despite Republican control of Congress and the White House, there is no guarantee that such reforms will occur
 Potential trade wars and the ballooning deficits from unfunded military and infrastructure spending are significant risks

 Despite the uncertainties, we are positive in our outlook and expect equities to outperform cash and bonds
