Financial Printing--Riding Out The Stocks

December 1998
Financial printing experiences its highs and lows as does the stock market. A bullish stock market makes for a bullish financial printing climate. For 1999, fingers are crossed the bulls will be running.


BY MARIE RANOIA ALONSO


In 1997, the financial printing market was considered by some financial printers to be the hottest bull market in the history of mankind. Some financial printers dubbed 1997 the finest year ever for financial printing, with mergers and acquisitions in abundance and mutual funds robust.

Life was good.

Then came 1998—a year in which the bears took over and the stock market treated financial printers with a touch less kindness.
