Springfield, MO, February 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Pension Consultants, Inc., a leader in offering in-depth, un-conflicted advice on every aspect of retirement plan management, is proud to announce that Terry Daniels, Senior Research Analyst, was recently awarded the 2014 CFA Society St. Louis (CFA-STL) Bulls Eye for Crude Oil Spot Price. Individuals were selected based on their 2014 Investment Outlook forecast for the S&P 500 Index, 10-year Treasury Yield, Stock Selection or Crude Oil Spot Price.
The Investment Outlook contest calls for the closest forecast for the following year’s S&P 500, 10-Year Treasury Yield, Stock Selection, and Crude Oil Stock price. Contest participants were members of the CFA-STL, a professional society comprised of portfolio managers, security analysts, investment advisors, and other financial professionals. The 2014 forecasts were made at the end of 2013. Terry’s forecast of $70.50 per barrel of West Texas Intermediate crude oil was the closest to the actual 2014 year end finish of $53.27. For his forecast, he took into consideration the expected growth in GDP for the U.S. and rest of the world, the historical per barrel price of oil under different conditions in the past, and anticipated slower global growth.
Brian Allen, president of Pension Consultants, said “We’re very proud of Terry’s accomplishment. The process he used to forecast is same one our analysts use for our institutional and individual clients. We go beyond the third party generic screening reports and collect, analyze and conduct our own research to select fund managers that we believe will consistently out-perform a given index. His winning this award is a reflection of how effective our process is.”
Terry Daniels is a Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) charter holder; one of the most respected and recognized investment designations worldwide. Prior to joining Pension Consultants, Terry was a semi-conductor and computer-hardware stock analyst for Edward Jones. He holds B.S. in Physics from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville (SIUE).
