Finding Opportunities in 2017.
After a year of mixed returns for the local indices in 2016, this week we at Bourse consider the fortunes of the local stock market in the year ahead. We do so within the context of several corporate earnings and stock market drivers set out in our recently published article entitled ‘Mixed Returns in 2016’. We examine how these drivers may impact the various sectors which comprise the Composite Index, as well as their local and cross-listed components. Finally, we share some insight on how investors could position their stock portfolio to best manoeuvre in the prevailing economic environment.
