Sell this and Buy the hedged version? He just took off of his Canadian hedges today. The Cdn$ has had a strong run up, and there are built-in expectations by the Bank of Canada that the Cd$ is going to go higher. Thinks Bank of Canada has gotten a little ahead of itself and the inflation and growth forecasts for next year are a little too robust. He wouldn’t be worried about the Cdn$ going up further. If you want to be long the US market, you want to stay with the unhedged version.

The pillars of Trump’s platform had infrastructure, lower taxes and reduced regulations. It is pretty clear that infrastructure and lower taxes is going to be, if ever, some time in the future. However, reduced regulations is something that can be done. They said that regulations don’t necessarily have to change the laws, they just have to reinterpret existing laws. Trump’s overall impact on the global economy won’t be as large as people had thought, but his sectorial impact will be massive. Banks are incredibly under owned and under loved, and extremely oversold.

It feels weird to recommend European banks, but there are limits to linear thinking, and things can change. Europe, arguably, is much earlier in the economic cycle than the US. Importantly, credit markets are fine and confidence is up.

Sweden is a country with less than 10 million people, but incredibly geared towards the global economic cycle. If you believe we are in this mild, synchronized global upturn, then you want a very highly industrialized nation, geared towards a global recovery. Sweden accomplishes that. Bloomberg just put out their index and said Sweden ranked 2nd in the Innovation Index.
