Buy Hold Sell: 5 stocks to soar as recession risk rolls over
Manage episode 338252121 series 2656707
While the US is technically in a recession, with two negative quarters of GDP growth in the first half of 2022, several leading economists would say otherwise.
Look no further than Goldman Sachs chief economist Jan Hatzius, who recently pointed to solid second-quarter earnings as proof of recession risk rolling over. Or JP Morgan's global head of macro quantitative and derivatives research, Marko Kolanovic, who remains pro-risk, steadfast that the probability of a recession is low.
Then, of course, there's former Deutsche Bank chief economist Ed Yardeni (now of Yardeni Research), who recently noted that the technical indicators are pointing in the direction of the bulls.
But that's all very US-focused. How does this fading risk impact Aussie stocks? Glad you asked.
In this episode, Livewire's Ally Selby was joined by Ben Clark from TMS Capital and Henry Jennings from Marcus Today for their analysis of three stocks that have been hit hard by recession fears.
Plus, they each name their number one pick that could soar if the risk of recession is truly behind us.
