Macro-economic data in Europe has been weak since the start of Global macro headwinds linked to the US — China trade wars coupled with domestic structural issues such as tightening of emission regulations are to blame. As of late European economic data is starting to stage a turnaround especially when compared to US macro-economic data evident from the chart below.
Source: WisdomTree, Bloomberg as of 21 October Historical performance is not an indication of future performance and any investments may go down in value. European small cap stocks have historically tracked the annual change in Eurozone industrial production since The chart below illustrates the annual change of industrial production in the Eurozone with a 3-month lag plotted against the performance of small versus large cap European stocks. The improvement in price performance of small versus large cap European stocks has historically signalled a rebound in Eurozone industrial production.
Source: WisdomTree, Bloomberg as of 30 September There are a few catalysts on the horizon that could trigger further upside in Eurozone industrial production, such as 1 improvement in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development OECD lead indicators 2 additional fiscal easing from Germany 3 easing of Brexit related uncertainty as the odds of a No-deal reduces. The EU has agreed to postpone the Brexit deadline until 31 January to allow Boris Johnson more time to persuade members of Parliament to ratify the deal he struck on October The UK will now hold a general election on December 12 in an attempt to break the deadlock.
As we receive more clarity on the path UK might follow in its departure from the EU, we believe it will pave the way for further upside across European small cap stocks permitting a greater willingness to invest. This is expected to be financed from existing surpluses in the energy and climate fund implying a minor net fiscal net boost of less than 1.
We believe this is far from sufficient to fight the downturn of the German economy. We expect the recent run of weak economic data releases from Germany to eventually persuade the German finance minister Olaf Scholz to unleash a more meaningful round of fiscal stimulus. European small cap stocks are attractively valued compared to large cap stocks.

Leverage for small caps is only slightly higher that of its large cap peers, confirmed by Net Debt to Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization EBITDA at 3. Owing to the cautious outlook on Europe, there has been an overcrowding in defensive sectors which constitute a larger proportion of large caps compared to small caps. Source: WisdomTree, Bloomberg as on 30 September Interestingly relative earnings momentum of small versus large cap European stocks has started to improve over the second half of and this is clearly being reflected in the outperformance of small versus large cap European stocks, which we believe is still at a nascent stage.
European small cap stocks are known to be more inefficient than large caps which offers a greater possibility of alpha generation. While sentiment remains weak across Europe, favourable valuations, positive earnings momentum coupled with a slowly improving macro backdrop could provide a timely opportunity to invest in European small cap stocks. Einen ganz anderen Weg geht Hyundai. Der koreanische Autokonzern setzt auf Wasserstoff und investiert Milliarden in den Aufbau einer Brennstoffzellenproduktion. Genaugenommen sind Brennstoffzellen — oder Wasserstoffautos auch Elektroautos 1.
Nur wird der Elektromotor nicht mittels einer Batterie betrieben, sondern von einer Brennstoffzelle, die aus Wasserstoff und Sauerstoff Strom erzeugt. Emissionen gibt es so gut wie keine — aus dem Auspuff kommt Wasserdampf. Aus unserer Sicht nicht. Klar ist: auch batteriebetriebene ebenso wie Brennstoffzellenautos verursachen Treibhausgas-, Stickoxid- sowie Partikelemissionen. Im Betrieb verursachen beide Technologien keine Treibhaus- oder Stickoxidemissionen. However, ironically, it is also among the most inefficient: share prices can deviate markedly from fair value. Why these discrepancies?
Compared with its peers, the Japanese stock market is under-researched — about 42 per cent of companies listed in the TOPIX index have no sell-side analyst coverage whatsoever. Take the case of gaming and entertainment giant Nintendo. The company's own guidance, in line with the most conservative estimate, stands 15 per cent below the consensus forecast.
And Nintendo is not an isolated example — the experience is the same for many other Japanese companies, which can lead to wild swings in share prices during earnings results seasons. Its deep liquidity and low transaction costs have made it popular with foreign investors, who make up on average at least half of daily trading volume.

That has a significant bearing on market dynamics. During episodes of stress, such as an emerging market crisis or a China-driven sell-off, this group of investors tends to liquidate their Japanese assets, regardless of corporate fundamentals, and use the money to cover losses elsewhere. Conversely, during rallies foreign investors tend to chase the market higher, often reacting to specific corporate events or domestic developments see FIG.
As such, their presence tends to expose the market to swings in global investor sentiment, which can lead to higher volatility. At the same time, the market is host to another distinctive block of investors whose trading activities do not always pay regard to corporate fundamentals. It is because of these idiosyncrasies that the Japanese stock market lends itself especially well to alternative investment approaches.
We believe investors looking to improve the diversification of their current allocation should consider an equity market neutral approach focused on Japan. It seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns in all market phases, without relying on the overall direction of the equity market.
Our market neutral portfolio, or PTR-Akari, combines bottom-up stock selection with insight into Japan-specific, technical market factors. The strategy, which invests in liquid and mainly large cap stocks, aims to identify attractive investment opportunities while achieving a low correlation to the broader market.
Each strategy contains a combination of long and short positions designed to extract uncorrelated, company-specific sources of returns independent of market moves — we hold single or multiple long or short positions and hedge them against single stocks, or sometimes a customised basket.

While targeting overall beta to be neutral, 4 we also take steps to diversify our industry exposure. At the same time, we seek to identify and hedge other common systematic risks — they include moves in foreign exchange and interest rates as well as broader stock market shifts driven by style rotations. This fine-tuning helps ensure our portfolio's returns are not correlated with those of the market. Japan's wide market breadth and its low stock borrowing cost mean that we can find optimal hedges within each industry sub-sector. To identify investment opportunities, we typically analyse Japanese companies from the perspective of their global value chains — the full range of activities involved in the production of a good or service.
For example, a smart phone may be designed in one country but assembled in another, using labour and materials from several suppliers from around the world. All of these sub-sectors make up a smart phone value chain. This approach allows us to analyse companies beyond the traditional industry framework used by mainstream equity benchmarks and gives us a broader perspective, which helps to determine how competitive or profitable a particular Japanese firm is in the context of the global economy.
This also helps us to identify sources of return that cannot be replicated easily by exchange-traded funds. We form our strategies by analysing relevant stocks within a certain value chain and anticipating domestic or global events which could trigger changes in their earnings outlook or financial positions. For example, when we look at the electric appliances sector, we consider it through the value chains of technology, machinery and chemical goods. We see demand picking up for electric components after years of stagnation because industries such as automobile are using more electric parts to enable automation and data analysis.
Similarly, the rollout of faster 5G networks is creating diverse investment opportunities across value chains. Our investment process starts with screening around 2, Japanese companies for liquidity and market capitalisation. Among those which make the cut, we analyse corporate fundamentals from the perspective of global value chains, meeting company management in the process.
We put a particular focus on market moves and forecast changes around the earnings season — a period when we tend to find rich trading opportunities given significant gaps in sell-side earnings estimates. Here, our investigations go far below the surface. This also helps us gauge the extent of the gap between various sell-side estimates and our own earnings forecasts. This screening takes the potential investment candidates down to about We then use our extensive industry experience in buy-side, sell-side and running proprietary trading books to choose optimal entry and exit points and maximise opportunities which the market presents.

In doing so, we take into account Japan-specific technical factors, including supply and demand of stocks, different trading patterns of domestic and foreign investors, seasonality and share buybacks. Calculated for the period We fine-tune the portfolio, taking into account factors such as size, liquidity and technical signals. At the same time, we seek to eliminate residual market risks. Japan is a market that is often overlooked but offers potentially rewarding opportunities.
