Insights by Mona Mahajan

Outlook & Commentary
Economic uncertainty in emerging markets, potential contagion to other nations and trade disputes could stall the vibrant first-half US equity-market rally. But the markets could stabilise towards year-end as mid-term elections conclude – particularly if trade disputes improve and corporate earnings remain robust.

Investment Themes & Strategy
Tax reform has given the US economy a second wind and widened its divergence from the global economy, which has faltered amid fears of trade wars and emerging-market uncertainty. Sector rotation in US equities could make tech and consumer discretionary attractive; energy and industrials may also benefit.

Outlook & Commentary
Three factors appear likely to shape the US economy through the rest of 2018: trade tensions, mid-term elections and the Fed’s road to normalisation. In a late-cycle environment marked by the potential for tail risks, investors should take a closer look at small caps, energy, high yield and alternatives.
