2015 turned to be a better year than expected for active investors that provided plenty of opportunities to make money in UK equities.

Despite falling commodity prices, the Greek debt crisis and China’s economic slowdown, many stocks posted positive gains.

But What About 2016?

“Potentially, 2016 could be a far better year for the UK should commodities rally. On the other hand earnings forecasts and hence dividend projections may still be too high should commodity prices remain under pressure,” said Andy Brunner, head of investment strategy of Morningstar.
