Wasatch Releases Commentary on the U.S. Markets, Economy, and India

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Wasatch Advisors today released new commentary on the markets and a whitepaper:

  • Wasatch Chairman Sam Stewart’s third quarter 2016 commentary, titled “Theater of the Absurd,” offers insights on the economy and the stock market. The title refers to Stewart’s contention that, like the enigmatic title role in the play Waiting for Godot, a resolution regarding global monetary policies remains elusive. Stewart suggests investors may be waiting for Godot in the wrong places, namely the US and developed markets, and may need to look elsewhere for opportunity. The full commentary can be found at this link.
  • A new whitepaper, “India Is a Standout Among Emerging Markets,” offers insights from the Wasatch investment team about the high quality investment opportunities and the supportive environment in India. Wasatch has been investing in India for more than ten years and the paper notes that their “on-the-ground research in India continues to provide us with a wealth of strong, well-managed companies with significant growth potential.” The full whitepaper can be found at this link.
