This week we will be visiting the world of semiconductors and looking at why the equipment providers may be a compelling way to gain exposure to the sector. We are currently in the midst of a massive global shortage of semiconductors at a time when demand is skyrocketing as a result of aggressive digitisation and the rise of tech like electric vehicles. The stock in question is a SATS (Semiconductor Assembly and Testing Services) company.
This week we will be visiting a stock in our Global Mobility portfolio that is poised to benefit from the themes of electrification and autonomy. While these thematics are well known and are well covered, most investors look to only a few select stocks to benefit from the trends (i.e. Tesla or their favorite lithium stock). Our Global Mobility portfolio focuses on finding the companies that are forming the ecosystem around these core thematics, the companies that will benefit from these trends but are perhaps less known to the everyday investor.
This week we will be talking about two stocks in our Asia Small Companies portfolio. This portfolio focuses on investing in small companies (up to $10bn market cap) predominantly in north Asia due to the increased levels of governance. Asian markets are typically unloved, especially China and Japan, and this opens up a large opportunity to gain exposure to misunderstood companies that have big growth potential. More recently, there have been improving levels of governance across Asia with a greater emphasis on delivering shareholder value.
In order to achieve full autonomy in driverless cars we will need to see much more then just advanced tech in-vehicle, we will also need a significant step up in infrastructure in the cities and spaces around the vehicles. Over the next two weeks we will be talking about two stocks that are well positioned to benefit from the rollout of 5G and the need for connectivity in infrastructure to support the emerging autonomous driving sector.
