US equities finished the week (ended 10 March) modestly lower, snapping a six-week gaining streak. Trading activity remained subdued for large part of the week, as investors took a cautious stance ahead of February’s job report and Fed’s policy meet on 14−15 March.
Most European equities traded in a narrow range on account of muted market activity ahead of the US Fed meeting and European Central Bank (ECB) monetary policy meeting scheduled for Thursday. Moreover, uncertainty surrounding the next week’s parliamentary elections in Netherlands and upcoming elections in France added some downward pressure on equity indices.
Asian indices edged up after treading water for most part of the week, as domestic economic and political data provided much needed support. Although disappointing performance by developed market peers added some downward pressure on Asian equities, local cues pushed indices higher.

Greg Canavan believes Australia’s banking sector will feel the biggest brunt from China’s slowing economy. Looking at Australia’s largest bank, Commonwealth Bank, Greg said the biggest risk is around CBA’s ability to maintain its high dividend. A slowdown in revenue growth or an increase in bad debts will ultimately impact dividends paid by Australia’s Big 4 banks.
Chris Batchelor agreed with Greg, adding that Australia’s mining sector will continue to suffer, along with companies selling their goods and services into China. Chris talks through the impact of China on BHP, Australia’s largest mining stock.

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.

In the eight months since May 2013, the share price of Skaffold’s top global stocks has risen, on average, 10%. 15 of the 27 stocks identified in May 2013 have recorded rising share prices averaging just over 25%. Only four stocks have returned share price falls in excess of 10%.
The most impressive share price gains were recorded by Hong Kong listed casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group (up 93%), UK-listed commercial television network ITV plc (up 49%), US-listed Global Payments Inc (up 42%) and Canadian businesses Pason Systems (up 37%) and Canadian Western Bank (up 35%). Four of the top 10 performers are listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange.
Hong Kong also recorded the largest decline, with Skyworth Digital Holdings share price falling 22% since May 2013. UK-listed Old Mutual (down 16%) and Petrofac (down 16%), Canadian supermarket chain Metro Inc (down 15%) and China Overseas Land & Investment, listed on the Hong Kong Exchange (down 9%) posted the largest losses.
Keeping in mind that Australian shares make up only about 2% of the overall world market, it makes sense to open up your investment universe to businesses simply not available on the local exchange.
