Investments Management Specialist Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors Reveals How YOU Can Profit From Coming Tax Reform

Investments Management Specialist Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors Reveals How YOU Can Profit From Coming Tax Reform. It has been just over a year since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States of America.

Back then, I wrote a few articles explaining the importance of US companies being able to repatriate their foreign profits back to the US at a special one-time reduced tax rate. I made the case that it would be a significant impact on US economic growth.

Since then, the economy has been strengthening and we have seen US GDP back over 3%. It is my belief that that tax reform has the potential to add a second wind to the US economy and to extend the current stock market rally.

If tax reform appears more likely to pass it will undoubtedly be positive for those who are owners of U.S. stocks.

Here’s the numbers.

  • There is currently an estimated $2.4 trillionin earnings held by U.S. multinationals overseas.
  • The top 30 companies with the largest amount of foreign earned profits account for 46% of that $2.4 trillion.
  • Of this top 30, there are two sectors that lead the pack with $579 billion and $425 billion respectively.

 

If you would like to know the specific two sectors that should benefit the most from this repatriation send me an email and I will let you know what they are.

We have been long the right sectors and companies most of this year through a variety of vehicles including low-cost exchange-traded funds, mutual funds and individual stocks. And the accounts have benefitted from this exposure.

Going forward, though, it is going to be essential to include these two sectors to the portfolios that I manage. You may want to as well!

Jeff’s Weekly Stock Market Commentary: The Fed Conundrum – Will They Or Won’t They?

The Fed announced in late October that there is a live possibility that they will raise rates in December. The very announcement of that initially caused bonds yields to spike (going from 1.98% on October 14th to 2.34% on Nov 10th) and caused losses for those that are heavily invested in USTs.

Traditionally, the Fed lowers interest rates to spur the economy and raises rates to slow it down. There was one jobs report in October that was very positive (and that seemed to spur the Fed on), but virtually all of the significant data released since then has shown economic weakness both here in the U.S. and abroad.

For instance, the UK recently announced that it is emerging from its troubles and stimulus is no longer needed. Then the UK Construction PMI was released showing a dramatic slowdown: dropped from 58.8 to 55.3. The UK has been stronger than other European countries but may just be the last to begin slowing.

Jeff’s Weekly Stock Market Commentary

Friday’s jobs report showed a noted decrease in hiring. It could be a sign that employers are becoming more cautious or it could just be a result of weather—time will tell for sure. One positive in the report was that lay-offs in the energy sector seem to be slowing down.

Beyond the jobs report though, the fact is that our economy is slowing and that should result in interest rates remaining lower for longer. As a result, we should see interest rates on US Treasury bonds continue to decline. That means additional profits in bond holdings like Vanguard Extended Duration ETF (EDV) and iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas. Bond ETF (TLT).
