Growth-Value Rotation. The latest attempt was predicated on expectations of a “blue wave” in the US election, which failed to materialize. But a vaccine may succeed where hopes of a large fiscal stimulus did not, namely, by delivering a sustained and faster-than-previously-thought recovery in growth, employment and inflation. All this points to higher yields. Growth-Value rotation would make the equity rally more sustainable. While the Growth-Value rotation should redefine leadership among sectors, it could at the same time help unlock some more upside for the whole market. We have long argued that Tech needed a bubble to continue performing as it has done in 2020. Since Value sectors are trading at significantly lower multiples than IT, they appear to have much more headroom for further gains. To access these research notes register for trial access.

30 year track record. We have a 30 year track record in making bold, off consensus-calls at major inflection points in economic, political and market cycles. For example, building on our global macro and financial analysis to find imbalances and fragilities, we identified the coming storm of the Global Financial Crisis – identifying the crucial turning point in the cycle and calling the stock market bottom as recovery began. More recently we called the March 2020 Covid-19 sell-off in the S&P 500.

The IMF says the world is in a “liquidity trap” and fiscal policy is the way out. Yet, if governments will not do provide the necessary stimulus, central banks are not totally out of ammunition. They could engage in quasi-fiscal operations, using their balance sheets creatively and destroying their equity. We look at their options, including dual interest rates and digital cash transfers.

RCEP - Asia FirstRCEP - Asia First

The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) – the newly agreed Indo-Pacific FTA– will firmly anchor trade and standard-setting power in East Asia. The 15 member countries account for 42% of global manufacturing value added and 30% of GDP. Though less ambitious than other recently concluded FTAs, RCEP is a significant improvement on current rules governing regional trade and investment.
