Unlike emerging markets, for which corporate governance and overall sentiment could prove challenging from time to time, the US remains the best place to invest in terms of liquidity and transparency.
The US market has proven its solidity over the last twenty years and corporate America has demonstrated its capacity to react very quickly to economic and financial crises.
- US companies are showing free cash flow at all-time highs, deleveraged balance sheets and efficient cost structures.
- Corporate share buy-backs are providing the market with a solid bedrock.
- Merger & acquisition activity is acting as a catalyst to help drive up equity markets.
- Equity valuations remain reasonable, with significant potential for improvement.
