Sometimes it is necessary for someone to be fully aware of something.
Amundi Asset Management, Europe’s largest asset manager, has conducted research that shows why US stocks have outpaced the world and why this performance can continue.
Amundi has written two from his Boston office – Craig Sterling, head of US stock research, and Marco Pirondini, head of US stock markets. and the American economy.
S&P 500 SPX,
surpassed the rest of the developed world as measured by the MSCI Europe, Australasia and Far East 990300 index,
in 19 of the last 30 years and with cumulative yields of 1574% compared to 235%. This is no coincidence, because American companies have higher profit margins and are constantly increasing their capital costs.
Amundi expects this performance to continue.
“Given the consequences of the pandemic and the recession, we believe that economic uncertainty has caused a lack of clear visibility into revenue, which is likely to exacerbate low-income companies. In addition to lower investment in innovation, technology and healthcare, which is inherent in the non-US stock market, structural and economic pressures persist as growth capital expenditures are limited, ”he says.
While US awards are not cheap, investors get what they pay for with a better return on investment.
Much of these results stem from the US dominance in technology, which the Amundi couple expects to continue. “The combination of world-class universities that develop technology and serve as a starting point for start-ups to commercialize it, a well-developed venture capital industry and a cultural willingness to take risks are making it harder for other regions of the world to outperform the United States. “A couple say, only China has proven to be a viable global competitor.
Monetary and fiscal policies that place more emphasis on the stock market are, in addition to technology, an advantage for US equities, as well as greater threats to shareholder activism and mergers and acquisitions. Lower taxes and a flexible labor market also support the US market.
The unique couple supports a corporate culture of share repurchases that are much less widespread outside the United States. “The key advantage of share repurchases is that they allow capital to be recycled throughout the economy, so that capital can end up in the most innovative hands and they are not trapped inside less efficient and more advanced companies,” says Amundi.
