George Town, Cayman Islands, August 29, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Cyclical industries include car makers, luxury goods producers, capital goods manufacturers and commodities companies. In a downturn these businesses are devalued first and hard, but they are also first to improve in a recovery. They can be very effective investments as spending returns and as confidence and valuations recover.
In contrast, the makeup of the US stock market has a greater proportion of defensive industries. However, even within the more defensive areas of the market, European companies tend to have greater cyclicality. For instance, American consumer product manufacturers earn the majority of their revenues from within the US, while their counterparts in Europe are pulling most of their profits from emerging markets. This observation is backed up by the fact that European companies have a greater proportion of their sales overseas. This is important as the recovery is currently being driven by emerging markets like Asia and Latin America, and not by the US.
