January 21, 2021

2021 is off to a good start thanks to strong earnings and continued investor enthusiasm for big technology companies and a new administration. The backstop from governments and central banks, as well as the consensus among investors that a strong economic recovery is coming this year, has for now pushed volatility out of the market.

The Explorer portfolio had a good week and today we add another SPAC merging with an established, fast-growing financial payments firm based in the United Kingdom.

As we move into a new year, the market shrugs off the chaos engulfing Capitol Hill and the GOP losing its majority in the U.S. Senate. Expect higher federal spending and debt in the next couple years, though it should be mentioned that we have already added $8 trillion to the national debt over the past four years. There were a few bright spots but Explorer stocks in general drifted a bit lower over the last week.

Today we have a new recommendation of a company of at the forefront of the technology revolution.

A stimulus bill looks like it is right around the corner but we need to get through this winter before vaccines are widely available. Facebook faces a real challenge to break it up and accept legal liability for content. An EU-China summit is cancelled after China tried to limit speakers critical of China’s clampdown of Hong Kong. On the Explorer front this past week, MP Materials (MP) and NovoCure (NVCR) were particularly strong as Sea Limited (SE) briefly made a new high at 200. As promised, our new idea this week hails from Brazil and is a monopoly play on the most essential of all resources.

Due to the holidays, the next issue of Cabot Global Stocks Explorer will be published on January 7, 2021.

This is a short week, with my last update just a few days ago, but our Explorer portfolio is doing well. In the last few days, Sea (SE), NovoCure (NVCR) and Alibaba (BABA) are each up 10 points and ElectraMeccanica (SOLO) has increased 20%. As the clouds lift with the flurry of positive vaccine announcements and election uncertainty gone, markets will go into December with more confidence but with lingering doubts about the strength of the economy. Our new recommendation is a leader in critical cancer diagnostics highlighting the benefits of a sharp focus on one market.

The potential vaccine and mixed election results pushed the market forward this past week, but the acceleration of the pandemic and near-term uncertainty in Washington pulled it back. It is a time to be a bit cautious. Emerging markets are showing some strength, as our timing indicator turns decidedly positive. Rotation into international stocks may be coming.

Alibaba (BABA) is a good example of the push and pulls. The Chinese e-commerce giant raked in a record-breaking $56 billion in sales in the first 30 minutes of China’s Singles’ Day on Wednesday, much higher than the $38 billion total in the entire 24-hour period last year. In comparison, Amazon booked $10.4 billion during its two-day Prime Day event last month. Yet, Alibaba’s stock was down sharply for the week. Find out why inside, where you can also learn about this week’s new SPAC recommendation.

Markets are choppy, which is normal considering uncertainty is high and we’re less than a week from the presidential election. Today I look at what history can teach us about politics and markets and why it might be a bit different this time. The Ant Technology giant IPO moves forward as China flexes its muscle, and it’s a signal for coming events. Today’s new idea is an electric vehicle play from Canada that is under the radar of even the trends of most avid supporters.

Markets hit pause this week as third-quarter earnings begin rolling in, doubt reigns over chance of another stimulus bill, and uncertainty over the outcome of the presidential election just three weeks out is palpable. Overseas, the Stoxx Europe 600 fell 2.2% as local governments and local authorities hurried to impose lockdown restrictions to halt the spread of Covid-19 cases. This week’s new recommendation is a fintech stock offering an intriguing mix of Southeast Asian, American and European growth. Interestingly, it has a partnership with Sea Limited (SE) and perhaps can best be described as a young “Shopify of mobile”.

This was a good week for the Explorer portfolio as all our positions advanced, led by NovoCure (NVCR), Sea Limited (SE) and Virgin Galactic (SPCE), which jumped 25% this past week. We now head into the fourth quarter, which may bring some turbulence as the election approaches. We will take what the market gives us but will be on guard. Our emerging markets timer (EEM) is still positive.

Today, we have a new recommendation in emerging markets that we hope will benefit from the biggest shopping day in the world.

The market’s uptrend is under a bit of pressure and the Fed’s dovish stand on interest rates is a sign of weakness that is unlikely to impress Wall Street. Nevertheless, Sea Limited (SE) has regained its momentum and NovoCure (NVCR) is up 35% over the past two weeks. And our emerging markets timer (EEM) is positive. This week we go to Australia for a new fintech idea that has been on a tear, but fortunately has pulled back for a decent entry point.

With the exception of another nice gain by NovoCure (NVCR), this was a quiet week for the Cabot Explorer portfolio as the Nasdaq continues its march, up almost 35% so far in 2020. Our Emerging Markets timer (EEM) stays positive as some of these markets bounce back against the backdrop of very weak economies. Perhaps the worst is India with its latest quarterly GDP falling 24%. This issue’s new recommendation is a high quality stock in a growth sector with a wonderful high margin, low risk business model.

All eyes are on Washington this week as markets, which have risen over the last four trading sessions, are counting on lawmakers hammering out another stimulus bill. Our emerging markets market timer remains positive. Sea Limited (SE) shares soared again this week, from 119 to 146, as this stock has quietly become the world’s best-performing large-cap stock, up more than 880% in the past 18 months. Cloudflare (NET) moved ahead along with our strategic metals ETF, and NovoCure (NVCR) reported positive earnings. This week’s issue begins with an overview of the emerging high-tech rivalry between America and China, and highlights a new recommendation of a dominant company at the heart of that rivalry.

Tesla shares have more than tripled this year as the company delivered a net profit yesterday, marking its fourth consecutive profitable quarter for the first time in its history. Alibaba connected Ant Group announced a mega IPO in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

These two companies dominated the news as investors looked past the upsurge in the pandemic, rising tensions in U.S.-China relations and wrangling in Washington over another shot of stimulus to jump start the economy. Today we highlight a recommendation that was previously in the Explorer portfolio but has moved only modestly from March lows despite a very innovative approach to cancer treatment.

U.S. markets are trading cautiously with the latest uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Chinese markets have surged over the last week and I’ll outline a trading idea to take advantage of the momentum. Our emerging market (EEM) signal is decisively positive as our portfolio moves ahead, led by our Alibaba (BABA) position, up 18% this week, and Sea Limited (SE) continuing its incredible run. Today, we discuss changes afoot in Hong Kong with a new recommendation that is an undervalued throwback blue chip that is also a high-quality proxy for Asian growth.

Markets, led by Nasdaq’s leading companies, had an impressive winning streak broken by concerns over an acceleration of coronavirus cases. Our Emerging Markets signal (EEM) stays positive as the virus is being handled well in Asia outside of China but is exploding in Latin America. The Explorer portfolio is well positioned with cash to deploy and stocks holding up well.

Today, we’ll look inside the indexes to see what’s working and also explore what more participation by individual investors in 2020 might mean for markets. Then we move north to Canada for a promising new recommendation that has all the characteristics of a winning gold stock.

Our emerging markets signal (EEM) is decisively positive after relative outperformance by emerging market stocks over the last couple of weeks. The Fed signals that rates will likely stay near zero through 2022 and the Fed chairman promised to “run stimulus programs forcefully, proactively and aggressively for years, if necessary.”

Although jobs numbers surprised on the upside, it looks like the market is shrugging off that GDP will gap down about 6% in 2020 and the federal budget deficit reached $400 billion for one month – May!

Today, we have a new recommendation that is at the heart of technology and hedges the growing tension and risk in Asia.
