A leading ratings agency downgraded a number of Australian financial institutions last week but investors should not be too concerned. Despite the downgrades, the credit ratings of Australian banks are stronger than those of their global peers.
While there is cyclicality in bank earnings, the outlook for our banks remains sound despite the headwinds of a weakening residential housing sector and a “big bank tax”. Banks are money-making machines.

Every year since 2012 Money magazine has asked Skaffold to pick five top stocks for the year ahead. Had you initially invested $50,000 and bought and sold the top-rated stocks each year since 2012, you’d be sitting on a portfolio worth just under $92,000.
This year’s top 5 stocks were ANZ, Breville, Flight Centre, Nick Scali and REA group. At 30 September 2015, $87,097 invested equally across the 2015 Top 5 stocks had returned 5.5 per cent, and 6.8 per cent including franking between 2 January 2015 and 30 September 2015. $87,097 had grown to $91,859. Over the same period the All Ords Accumulation Index returned -3.1 per cent.

While there are times when the ASX offers an impressive list of high-performing growth stocks, limiting yourself during times when local growth is slowing can detract from the long-term performance of your portfolio. So if you prefer to stick with the big end of town and don’t want to limit yourself to bank and mining stocks, then it’s time to think global.
This month we jumped into Skaffold Global – there are around 2000 stocks to choose from – and uncovered a list of the largest stocks in the same sectors as our top 10: banks, mining, telecommunications, retail and biotechnology.
In May 2014 we did the same comparison: Australia’s top 10 stocks versus the world. Had you invested $100,000 equally across the nine global stocks identified, you’d be sitting on a capital gain of $10,500 and received $2,700 in dividends. That’s a return of 13 per cent. Add the benefits of currency movements and your profit, including dividends, rises to $30,000, or a 30 per cent gain on your initial investment. Over the same period the S&P/All Ordinaries Accumulation Index returned 7.8 per cent.

A big clean out – of your garage, wardrobe, garden shed – can be liberating. You’ll stumble across stuff you forgot you had (and realise you can’t live without it) and uncover a mountain of junk that should have been put out for the council clean-up five years ago. Routinely cleaning out your portfolio is no different from a spring clean of your home. You need to do it regularly and be ruthless.
If you put your companies through the wringer, deciding whether to buy, sell or hold should be simple.

Since 2015’s start, Skaffold’s Top 5 stocks – ANZ, Breville Group, Flight Centre, Nick Scali and REA Group – have gained about 7.4%, compared with the 6.6% achieved by the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index.
While this short-term performance is impressive, holding a concentrated portfolio and, indeed, limiting yourself to just the Australian market, which is dominated by the big four banks and mining companies, can limit the long-term performance of your portfolio.
So how do you capture the growth opportunities offered by global tech giants, pharmaceutical stocks, big oil companies and manufacturers that simply don’t exist in Australia? Simple. You need to take your share portfolio global.

To write this article we simply applied Skaffold’s 2015 Top Stocks filter across the seven global stock markets covered by Skaffold.
Why did we go global? Because limiting yourself to just the Australian market, which is dominated by the big four banks and mining companies, can limit the long-term performance of your portfolio.

When it comes to rebalancing your portfolio, do you rely on stop losses to tell you when to sell a stock? How is your position size affected by cash holdings? How actively do you trade? How can I use historical market performance to build a portfolio today? When do you sell?
Following a jam-packed hour of insights from Roger Montgomery and Chris Batchelor, our latest webinar ended with a live Q&A session Roger Montgomery.
