Sinking Currencies Will Spur Japanese, European Stocks
Japanese and European stocks are currently substantially less expensive than U.S. shares and could benefit from weakening currencies, said Jeremy Schwartz, Director of Research at WisdomTree. Schwartz added that dividend growth has been robust in the U.S. in the past 3 years, yet he anticipates normal, high single digit returns from 'fairly valued' U.S. stocks. He said European companies, especially exporters, are benefiting from the declining Euro, and he believes further action from the European Central Bank to spur growth. Finally, Schwartz said Japanese stocks will likely benefit from pension fund buying as well as the declining yen.
