Robert Swift takes a look at the ongoing frenzied search for yield and highlights one sector, infrastructure, and stock that has benefited accordingly.

While we still remain committed to the notion that it is next to impossible to predict the price action in this incredibly complex market with any degree of certainty we also did make clear that we do have some long-gold exposure by way of companies whose cost of production is lower than US$1000.

Kevin Smith, of Delft Partners and portfolio manager of the TAMIM Asia Small Companies Fund, highlights one of the stocks in the Asia Small Companies portfolio, Open House (3288.TYO). Open House is a Japanese real estate company that trades on a single digit P/E ratio yet delivers a revenue growth rate of 30% and profit growth of 16%. Open House has both a strong brand and strong market share of single-family housing in key Japanese cities. It is taking advantage of the growing trend of smaller Japanese households and is a stock that is worthy of consideration in your international equity portfolio.
