Matt Sherwood's key take out from overnight

Matt Sherwood's key take out from overnight. The primary reason that Russia want to keep the Ukraine in friendly hands is that one third of its Europe-bound gas exports travel through the country. However, given the growing tensions, global energy price now have had a risk premium inserted into market prices reflecting delivery-risk. The major risk here is the negative impact that higher oil prices will have on discretionary spending, especially in the emerging markets, which have already been battered by capital outflows to the US, and Japan. The key here is for investors to understand that the market has had a tremendous run in February and is poised for a pull back and that if earnings growth globally picks up this year, the larger the selloff, the better the entry point. However, investors need to be looking for quality balance sheets and robust operating models. (VIEW LINK)
