OUTLOOK

Most global stock bourses have completed a short six-month bear formation that typically follows a powerful rebound (which ran from March 2009 to April 2011). We are now in the early stages of a new bull market that should extend through 2012 and 2013. A bull market requires leadership and this one will be led by global recovery-sensitive stock sectors such as the technology sector and the industrial sector. The companies to own are those who make “hard” things. Things that have to be painted, lubricated and transported by pipeline, trains and ships. This rules out “soft” sectors or service companies such as retail, telecom and financial services.
