Reading the big trends that are dominating the Australian share market makes it a lot easier for investors to beat the index and to achieve satisfactory investment returns. For example, not owning any resources stocks between 2011 and the start of 2016 virtually guaranteed broader market outperformance. And so did staying away from banks over the past two-three years, and not owning energy companies. Instead, there is the sharp outperformance of yield over value/growth, of reliable and predictable growth over cyclicals, of smaller cap stocks over blue chips. How well did you read these trends? Is there a bend in trends on the horizon? Reflections on the FNArena All-Weather Model Portfolio throughout the year until June 30. (VIEW LINK)
