US Policy ETF comments on Trump administration


EventShares’ CIO Ben Phillips has written a note on the third quarter Policy Investing Outlook for his ETF based on US policy.

Phillips writes: “To understand the Trump administration, we think it’s important to recognise President Trump’s two major policy priorities: (1) trade and (2) immigration. We trace most of this year’s market volatility back to Trump’s view of how the US should look.
“Trade continues to be the biggest potential headwind to the market. While negotiations play out, we prefer to hold US focused companies with minimal foreign currency exposure.
Additional policies that Phillips is watching in Q3 2018 include immigration, trucking, defence, refining spreads, financial deregulation, healthcare, and the upcoming midterms.
“We believe handicapping Trump is a fool’s errand. Instead, we’re continuing to monitor the above policies that we think will impact individual companies and sectors,” Phillips concludes.
