Foreign Trade Outlook 24. 1 believe that armament is to become & new and permanent Irdustry, at least for many years to come. Airplanes, tanks, artillery, guns, and munitions will constantly be replied B s they become obsolete. This new activity will operate much as the automobile industry has operated. I forecast Iliat (his will be more recogni?.ed throughout 1952. 25. Barring new war developments, I look for continued shrinkage In our civilian experts during 1352. Imports, however, may rise further. Exports to South America will be off. Total foreign trade should not be changed murh, but the exporters will be on the short end of this business with the Importers yalning. 26 Except for war supplies, It will become more difficult to convince Congress that additional heavy credits should be granted abroad. 27.

MARKKT, BOND OUTLOOK 32. Until the danger of war Is past, wise people who can easily do so will move out ol large homb- viiltierable cities and avoid having investments In such areas. :i3. Sometime during 1953 stocks will sell lower than current quotations. This applies especially to oils and certain "blue chips. 11 34. Stock now In the best position for 11)52 should be many of those that have not been popular as inflation hedges In the past months. I like good chain variety store stocks, certain movie stocks and possibly the air-transportation Issues. 35. Investment trust funds pension funds, and insurance companies may provide «n excellent backlog of demand for sound Income slocks where good values can be demonstrated. 36. Successful Investors ol 1952 will be those who have the patience to follow a carefully planned Investment program. Such a program will emphasize diversification—not only by company and Industry, but alw by quality and cash. 31. Highest-grade taxable corporate bonds should hold In a narrow rrlc- rang- during 1052, but I »ee reason for Individual Investors to buy them unless they »r« convertibles. 38. With present high Income taxes, lax-exempt bonds should continue In good demand. Investors should see to It that, their bond •naturlttcs are carelully diversified vlth some part of their bond funds naturlng each year. As there us- inlly Is not a good market for tax- exempts when an estate Is liquidated, it is wise to hold only such bonds as will mature near th« time >ne's probable death. RKAt, ESTATE ACTIVITY 39.
