In the global search for returns after the Brexit vote, many analysts see the U.S. stock market as the best place to put money to work. Emerging markets are also relatively attractive with the Fed on hold.
"The U.S. is still the engine of growth, or place of greatest certainty," said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management.
An informal survey of participants at the 2016 UBS CIO Global Forum on June 30 showed 51 percent expect U.S. equities to show the best equity return this year. Emerging markets came in second, with 39 percent of the votes.
