US Markets Mid Cap Growth & Low Volatility

US Markets Mid Cap Growth & Low Volatility
  • Pininvest Analysis

As the prospects of the US economy look more uncertain in April '18,  and analysts grow more uncomfortable with the high valuations on Wall Street, our theme prepares for possible market reversals

The industry sectors are represented with the exception of agriculture, basic materials and transportation, notably sensitive to economic headwinds

With mid-cap market valuations, the selected companies offer a fair degree of stablity and their growth prospects, vindicated by the performance of their share prices, are solid

There is little doubt valuations of our theme would suffer from a global backlash but we submit to your consideration  the possibility the companies may be relatively less impacted,  and shielded by strong fundamentals 

The benchmark of our theme is the iShare Core S&P  ETF

Check Analytics for fundamentals in our theme and keep track of your preferred companies with our Benchmark feature
