Investments in Infrastructure Companies

Recently, President Obama signed into law a $787 billion stimulus bill. The bill includes $48 Billion for infrastructure spending. It only seems like a down payment on some of the future spending needed to improve the nation's roads, bridges and highways. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimated it will require $2.2 Trillion over the next five years. Please join Elizabeth Collins, associate director of research at Morningstar for the Basic Materials team, for a discussion that will highlight investment opportunities in this sector.

Attendees should be prepared to make a 1 - 2 minute presentation of their favorite investments in the infrastructure and basic materials sector that will thrive in this environment.
