Richard has doubled his money on a rolling twelve-month basis to July 2021. Here, he gives his views on the markets, the economy, and where he sees opportunities. He is positive on global equities, with caveats. He saw August 2020 as the start of the business recovery, which he believes is still on course. He cautions to keep an eye on PMI/ISM data to see the continued growth. He’s bullish on industrial cyclicals due to government fiscal spending, citing Kier. Essentially, he’s looking for companies with pricing power, strong brands and structural drivers.
