Quant Strategy Portfolio | March update - Lack of leadership supporting the markets | Strategy outlook: The lack of government leadership to drive fair and balanced reform through election cycles has forced the RBA to cut rates to historical low levels. The relative low returns in the alternative investments are driving corporates towards low risk options such as share buybacks, higher yield, cost management, mergers and acquisitions instead of growth to deliver shareholder value. The market is benefiting from the leadership failure to drive growth. Current model portfolio: Materials - large (BHP); Transport - large (SYD, TCL); Consumer Services - mid (ALL), small (AAD, AGI, MTR, RFG); Media - mid (FXJ), small (APN), micro (PRT); Retailing - small (BRG, CCV, KMD); Food & Staples Retailing - large (WES, WOW); Health Care - mid (ANN), small (GXL); Banks - large (ANZ, NAB, WBC); Diversified Financials - mid (HGG); Property Trusts - large (LLC, SCG, SGP), small (ARF); IT - large (CPU), mid (CAR); Telecommunications - large (TLS), micro (BGL).
