13 Stocks Investors Should Focus On: Strategists
Stocks opened higher on Wednesday, following a rocky trading session Tuesday that left the blue-chip index down 0.3 percent. How should investors be positioned? Ronald Weiner, president and CIO of RDM Financial Group and Charlie Smith, CIO of Fort Pitt Capital Group shared their market outlooks.
