Here's a brief overview of the topics and charts covered in the latest edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report. I send this report out late Friday NZ time and aim to cover a good mix of macro/ideas/risk topics, across a global macro/multi-asset universe.
This week I covered the following topics/ideas:
1. Fiscal/Tax: Anticipate fiscal policy to be a headwind in developed economies, and expect an (eventual) end to the trend of falling corporate tax rates across global equities. Check out these key charts to watch in the coming years.
2. Small Caps: Reviewing small caps in light of macro headwinds, intermarket divergences, and their strengths/weaknesses.
3. Energy Stocks: Progress check on energy stocks given relative valuations, energy price outlook, earnings trends, and allocations/sentiment.
4. Clean Energy: After a big reset in clean energy sector equities valuations have improved considerably (albeit not quite a pure value-play just yet), this reset should be helpful for longer-term investors in this space.
