A colleague who has just returned from maternity leave commented that when she left the office, ESG was not mentioned that much, whereas now it seems to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Is this just ‘mentionitis’?
This week’s Diary, the last from the EU, covers news from the European Central Bank (ECB) and Davos, revisits the prospects for 2020 covered in early December (2/12/19 link) and touches on what to look for when searching for returns over the next five years. Also, is it time to be a value investor or will growth companies remain on top and will the merger and acquisition boom continue?
Global financial markets have been negatively impacted by the recent outbreak of the coronavirus, an infectious and potentially deadly respiratory disease. Thought to have originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, there have been just under 3,000 confirmed cases, with 80 fatalities (at the time of writing.) There are obvious similarities with SARS, which broke out around seventeen years ago.
The FTSE 100 is called to open 96 points lower at 7490. Deepening fears about the economic and human impact of the deadly coronavirus sent stocks, crude oil and China’s yuan tumbling Monday, and spurred haven assets. European futures retreated over 1%, with slightly more modest losses on S&P 500 contracts after that index sank the most since October on Friday. Futures on Chinese shares fell more than 5% and the yuan erased this month’s trade-deal driven gains in wake of news that the virus continues to spread, with no peak in sight. Ten-year Treasury yields and West Texas crude both hit their lowest levels since October. The yen climbed and Japanese stocks slumped.
