The recovery in the U.S. will be nothing more than mediocre, says Robert Parker, vice chairman at Credit Suisse Asset Management. He tells CNBC the U.S. economy will have positive GDP in the third-quarter of next year, and that Europe is likely to do the same. Parker also expects Japan to have growth in the second quarter of 2009.

"Looking back in history … having an opportunity to buy this asset class on 1.1 times book (value) has proven to be a very, very profitable thing," Matthews said.
