Weekly Macro Themes - 29 January 2021
Here's a brief overview of the topics and charts covered in the latest edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report (the flagship report of our institutional research service). I send this report out weekly late Friday NZ time and aim to cover a good mix of macro/ideas/risk management topics, across a global macro/multi-asset universe.
This week I covered the following topics/ideas:
1. EM Equities: Given short-term risk flags and the shift in valuations, a more cautious stance is warranted short-term, but medium-term EM Equities still have room to run (particularly relative to US).
2. EM ex-Asia: Given relative valuations (FX + Equities), linkages with commodities, and promising medium/longer-term technicals, remain bullish EM ex-Asia.
3. EM ex-China: Initial findings from initiation of coverage of “EMEC” shows a slight valuation discount has opened up between EMEC vs China (and that tilting opportunities are viable).
4. EMFX: Short-term EMFX appears to be in the process of a selloff, but retain the core medium-term bullish view on valuations, macro, and medium-term technicals.
5. EM Fixed Income: While EM fixed income does provide some yield pickup/relative value vs developed markets, it shares the features of tight credit risk pricing and unfavourable duration risk outlook.
