Trump has made this trade off for no good reason. 40% of earnings come out of Europe where the economy is doing fine. Great balance sheet. They'll likely raise the dividend. Another 40% of earnings come out of Hong Kong which is pegged to US interest rates, which in turn will rise. A great global franchise. Smart management. Attractive at these levels. (6% dividend, Analysts' price target: HK$79.63)
