In a previous article, we gave a rationalisation for why, despite seemingly irrational valuations, we remain overweight equities here at TAMIM. This week we continue to explore this but with a caveat, that is the potential for inflation and the reasons why it might pay to be more discerning in your asset allocation. And what are some of the businesses we have invested in to take advantage?

Allot is a stock well positioned to capitalise on not only the current state of the Telco industry but also the future of the segment and the Internet of Things. Most of us are familiar with the ever-changing landscape of communications technology. Starting from the basic cellular phone in the late 20th century, the advent of the Information Age as we call it has seen us evolve into where we are today, this is the age of the hyper-connected consumer, demanding evermore convenience and consuming exponential levels of data.
Robert Swift highlights one of his favourite stocks at the moment, one that he thinks might just be better than Facebook. We prefer to pay less for future earnings and dividends.

In the lead up to Brexit Robert Swift, head of the TAMIM Global Equity High Conviction Individually Managed Account (IMA), took the view that one could effectively immunise a portfolio from the effects of potentially massive global economic events like Brexit or the upcoming US Election. Having successfully taken precautions to hold stocks that rode out Brexit admirably he now turns his attention to the US in an attempt to immunise the global equity portfolio against any shocks following the US election. The themes presented here should present strong investment opportunities whatever the outcome of the election may be. Robert also provides us with a list of stocks he is watching with this in mind.

Dividends have increased in line with earnings and are kept at a sensible level of around 40-50%. This is far more reasonable compared with the dividend overpaying of Australian banks where the average payout ratio is around 78%.
