Robert Johnson, CFA, is director of economic analysis for Morningstar.


With full-year 2016 GDP growth coming in at only 1.6%, Morningstar’s Bob Johnson thinks this year will only be slightly higher as potential catalysts like tax reform and stimulus could take some time to take hold.

Slowdowns in trade and immigration could hold back the U.S., and infrastructure spending could boost GDP, but it's too early to make any major changes to our economic forecast, says Morningstar's Bob Johnson.
