 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- John Connolly, CFA, a partner at Miller, Anderson & Sherrerd, and ex-chief investment strategist for Dean Witter Reynolds, will present his unique ideas on investment strategies for the 1990's to over 500 investment managers at the Schwab (NYSE: SCH) National Financial Advisor Conference on October 28th and 29th at the New York Hilton and Towers at Rockefeller Center. Mr. Connolly believes investment strategy for this decade will be shaped by three major forces: access to global markets, a low inflationary environment, and alternative investment choices.
 Mr. Connolly contends that increased access to global markets will provide individuals and professionals more opportunities to emerging markets and undervalued companies where higher returns may be available.
 Even in the United States, he believes niche strategies that take advantage of the low inflationary environment will create possibilities. Mr. Connolly will challenge his audience with such questions: "Is the U.S. healthcare industry cheap at this point or should investors wait? Is the retailing sector a good investment at this time? Is the auto industry overvalued or is there still a distance to run in this sector?" He will examine twelve major industry sectors in the U.S. and provide Conference attendees a list of approximately ten securities as examples of the strategic investing he advocates.
 Mr. Connolly intends to point out that the returns available to investors for the remainder of the decade will not equal those of the 1980's. Nonetheless he is optimistic about the possibilities of making money in the market. He encourages individuals and professionals to search a little harder, to be creative in their strategies and determined to find value.
 In addition to Mr. Connolly, the keynote speaker opening the Schwab Conference will be Jack Kemp, former HUD Secretary who promotes social policies to empower people. Paul Kennedy, Ph.D., Professor at Yale University, will discuss global politics and their market implications.
