Despite turmoil overseas, the US economy continues to grow, increasing opportunities for domestically-focused companies.
Curated by Motif Investing
With Europe facing the prospect of another recession, consider companies focused on growth in America. Most multinational companies get about 30% of sales from foreign developed regions like Europe. But as demand there slows, sales targets are increasingly at risk. Plus, the gap between the European and American economies appears to be widening. The Eurozone's GDP was marginally up by 0.3 percent in the second quarter of 2013, – while US GDP growth was 2.5 percent.
In contrast, companies in this motif, with all sales coming from the US, have managed to grow their revenue and income by at least 8% over the past three years.
We identified US-listed stocks and American Depository Receipts of companies that are engaged in activities relevant to this watchlist's theme. We then filtered out companies that have a share price of less than $1.00 or a market capitalization less than $100 million, and excluded illiquid stocks by screening companies for liquidity i.e. average bid-ask spreads, dollar volume traded etc. Finally the proprietary Motif Optimization Engine determined the constituent stocks.
