Trip Report New York March 2017

- The popular Trump reflation trade (long USD and short rates) has reversed this year, as the Trump administration failed to deliver on its growth agenda
- The resilience of equities is remarkable and brings back the memories of the late ‘90s – this year, five tech stocks have added USD 600 bn of market cap and accounted for more than 50% of Nasdaq 100’ performance
- Equity PMs are cautiously optimistic and not increasing their risk exposures until there is more clarity on the policy front
- Credit PMs are still capitalizing on the aftermath of the HY energy crisis and are also increasingly diversifying into less liquid special situations
- The ultra-low yield environment has made volatility selling very popular and also vulnerable if markets suddenly fall through support levels
- The compression of volatility has caused many options arbitrage and quant equity strategies to underperform this year
- Valuations have become very stretched and the current Shiller P/E is trading at levels not seen since the dotcom bubble while at the same time the Fed is hiking rates and considering to unwind its balance sheet

- The global debt problem is unsolved and the initiatives in the USA and France will not result in lower government debt any time soon

- Opportunities in the financial and energy sectors arise in Europe with a broader recovery and an increased environmental awareness

- The Fed will keep hiking their short-term interest rates and Europe will need to taper their bond buying program in 2018

Auszug Market Naivgator: Risikomatrix "Known Unknowns"

Only available in German:

Risiken für Weltwirtschaft + Aktienmärkte, Fazit: relevanteste Risiken derzeit sind weitere Verzögerungen und Enttäuschungen in Bezug auf die hohen Erwartungen an die Trump-Versprechungen. Auch gibt es erste schwache Signale, dass das Momentum der US-Wirtschaft sich leicht verlangsamt – nicht dramatisch, aber zu beobachten.

Geopolitische Risiken, Fazit: Das Risiko für die Eurozone aus Frankreich heraus hat sich stark reduziert. Italien als grosser Verlierer des Euro könnte für Europas Kohäsion ein Problem werden. Schlüsselrisiko derzeit sind unilaterale protektionistische Massnahmen der USA sowie eine Eskalation des Nordkorea-Konfliktes.

"Wie die Grafiken klar zeigen, sind Bewertungsniveaus (obschon oft als Rechtfertigung herbeigezogen) nur in Extremsituationen einigermassen nützliche Indikatoren, die meiste Zeit über sagen sie eigentlich nicht viel aus. Vielmehr gilt es die Extreme als langfristigen Kontext für Anlageentscheide zu beachten."

Making money while sleeping soundly: Swiss 'Compounders' highly attractive

With over 25 years of experience in equity markets, Daniele Scilingo knows his native Swiss market inside out. Under the nanos investment brand, the former Head of European equities of Pictet is now solely focusing on 30-50 Swiss "compounders" he identified and follows closely. These compounders offer high return on capital employed, good cash flow generation and have a management able to allocate the capital they generate in a profitable way, or they pay it back to the investors
