Here's an overview of the topics and charts covered in the latest edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report. To receive a copy just click through to contact us or request a trial.
This week we covered the following topics/ideas:
1. China PMI: The official PMIs rebounded in November, with broad-based improvement.
2. Global Earnings Pulse: The pessimistic tone in consensus forward earnings is a positive contrarian signal, and the reset in earnings expectations means the market is well primed to upside surprises.
3. US Credit Spreads: A number of risk indicators for credit suggest caution, but are largely consistent with the softer growth pulse (that said: prefer equities to credit given risk/reward asymmetries).
4. Japanese Equities (and Yen): Japanese equities are starting to decouple from the JPY again, and given a combination of factors we actually could see stronger performance from both.
5. Country Governance Ratings: The composite governance ratings help explain some of the differences across countries (and especially EM vs DM) in expected equity market returns and the level of nominal bond yields.
