Why Emerging Market Stocks Like South Africa (and Nigeria) Could Rise

nigerian stock exchange building   The financial institution BlackRock is saying that emerging markets stocks can rise (even further).

“Global chief investment Strategist Richard Turnill explains 3 likely outcomes that motivated BlackRock to upgrade emerging market equities to overweight:

  1. Global growth expectations pick up and interest rates stay low.
  2. Federal Reserve officials appear split on policy direction. LIBOR hit seven-year highs ahead of U.S. money market reforms.
  3. Fed Chair Janet Yellen may shed light on future policy moves in a speech [Friday] at the central bank’s annual Jackson Hole meeting.”

“EM equities are trading at a 24% discount to global developed markets on forward earnings multiples. Fundamentals could further improve, we believe, as EM companies focus on controlling expenses and targeting profits over market share gains.”

“Within EM equities we prefer countries showing economic improvements or having clear reform catalysts, including India and ASEAN countries.”

With the devaluation of the naira and other factors, Nigeria could be moving in this direction, and so could South Africa.
