U.S. Growth to Drive Stocks in ’12, Wells Capital’s Paulsen Says

Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The euro-area debt crisis will take a back seat in 2012 as investors pay more attention to U.S. economic growth that may accelerate to 3 percent next year, Wells Capital Management’s James Paulsen said.

Europe’s problems will be “with us for years” and are moving “from an imminent calamity to a chronic problem” in investors’ perception, Paulsen, Minneapolis-based chief investment strategist at Wells Capital, which manages about $340 billion, said in a Bloomberg Television interview.

Emerging markets will be most attractive for equity investors as central-bank tightening has reduced their valuations, Paulsen said.
