Ep 103: What to do in the new “risk off” stock market environment



On today’s podcast we discuss the renewed sense of uncertainty in the stock market following the US-China trade SNAFU that is simply not what investors were expecting just 10 days ago. With weeks to go until the next round of trade talks, investors will focus on the potential impact from the latest round of trade tariffs on existing growth expectations for the economy and corporate earnings. Following the recent sharp market sell off as investors grapple with these issues and the renewed risk off mindset, we could see a dead cat bounce emerge and rather than fall for this potential head fake investors should stay on the sidelines until building their shopping list for when the market stabilizes. The kinds of companies to examine include those that are undergoing a business transformation that will allow them to more adeptly ride our investing themes. We walk through examples ranging from Apple and Disney to AT&T and Axon Enterprises. The podcast closes out with some of the latest signals for our Digital Lifestyle, Middle-Class Squeeze and Safety & Security investing themes, and why we more than like Costco’s business model.

Chris Versace, Chief Investment Officer
I'm the Chief Investment Officer of Tematica Research and editor of Tematica Investing newsletter. All of that capitalizes on my near 20 years in the investment industry, nearly all of it breaking down industries and recommending stocks. In that time, I've been ranked an All Star Analyst by Zacks Investment Research and my efforts in analyzing industries, companies and equities have been recognized by both Institutional Investor and Thomson Reuters’ StarMine Monitor. In my travels, I've covered cyclicals, tech and more, which gives me a different vantage point, one that uses not only an ecosystem or food chain perspective, but one that also examines demographics, economics, psychographics and more when formulating my investment views. The question I most often get is "Are you related to…."
