I’m Keith DeGreen and this is your Investors Minute

At DeGreen Capital Management we’ve rotated heavily into U.S. equity ETFs. We’ve even added some leveraged exchange-traded funds. We expect a strong year-end for U.S. markets. Here are some of the reasons why:

Recently the Bank of Japan unexpectedly – and aggressively – expanded its stimulus program. Japan is the world’s third largest economy.

As part of its expansion, it announced that it would triple its purchases of ETFs. This will include ETFs that include many U.S. companies.

Also, Japan’s government pension fund – one of the largest in the world – announced that it would put half its holdings into local and foreign stocks.

Japan’s economic policy is geared toward lowering the value of the yen. This gives them even greater incentive to invest in U.S. stocks.

Tomorrow, I’ll offer more reasons why we’re bullish on U.S. equities.
