Mar 15, 2022
Given the discussed macroeconomic environment we then discuss some stock picks that investors could consider. Our picks include Tropical Battery, Express catering Limited, Wisynco, and JMMB. ALL of which we believe the current environment will afford significant tailwinds. The greater push to renewables and improvement in efficiency should aid tropical while the continued growth/rebound in the tourism sector provides benefits to ECL and Wisynco. Finally, we think JMMB has long been an undervalued option and it’s our hope the pending buyback will spur price appreciation.
