Several former “America First” officials are considering bids for political office, as former President Trump will soon begin screening 2022 midterm candidates who are eager to forward MAGA policies.

Formal meetings with prospects could begin as early as March, according to Breitbart News.

Among those eying a run are Cliff Sims, the former deputy at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI); former Ambassador to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard, a top Trump donor; former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell; former White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders; former campaign adviser Katrina Pierson; and former White House aide Max Miller.

Sims, according to a report, is seriously weighing a bid to replace retiring Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL). Sims is close with Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner. After his White House stint, he was brought on by the Republican National Committee to oversee speechwriting at the 2020 convention before moving to his post at ODNI under then-Director John Ratcliffe.

Blanchard, also running for Alabama’s open Senate seat, got an early jump on the field, releasing a video announcement pledging she would carry on Trump’s legacy. Sims and Blanchard may be joined in the Republican primary by Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL) and Gary Palmer (R-AL), as well as businesswomen Jessica Taylor and Katie Boyd Britt.

Sean Hannity and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) have publicly advocated for Grenell to consider a run against Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). However, Grenell acknowledged on Hannity earlier in February that any Republican running for statewide office in California is “going to have a very tough time.”

In Arkansas, Sanders is the frontrunner since launching her bid for the governor’s mansion with Trump’s support. That is in contrast to current Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R), who is a regular critic of Trump.

Strategic planning is also playing out in House races, with Pierson having been endorsed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to replace the late Rep. Ron Wright (R-TX). And former White House aide Miller is preparing a primary challenge against Rep. Anthony Gonzales (R-OH), who voted to impeach Trump.

Trump has received dozens of requests from prospective candidates who wish to earn his support, and he is fielding them as he sees fit, rejecting meetings with former South Carolina governor and 2024 hopeful Nikki Haley and other House and Senate GOP candidates vying for his ear.

Exit Banco Santander and increase weight in Inditex to seek quality in the Spanish stock market

Exit Banco Santander and increase weight in Inditex to seek quality in the Spanish stock market

Renta 4 Gestora leavesSantander Bank, Bankinter, Melia, Prosegur, Aena, FCC and Tubacex and increases weight in Inditex, Ferrovial, Amadeus, Grifols, Cellnex, Iberdrola, CIE and Fluidra in its equity fund on the Spanish stock market. The correction of March and April 2020 allows them to increase weight in quality companies (with growth, predictable, dominant businesses and generators of free cash flows) at attractive prices.

This is how he explained it Javier Galán, manager of Renta 4 Bolsa FI and Renta 4 Valor Europa FI. In Renta 4 they look for quality companies that meet a series of characteristics such as sustainable growth, that are part of megatrends, with stable margins, strong entry barriers and that capitalize on their profits, in addition to high returns on capital or cash generation, in addition to low levels of indebtedness and good managers.

On the investment style of look for cheap companies with appreciation potential, Galán has warned that “when we find cheap companies it is usually for some relevant reason”, stressing that we must avoid value traps, cheap companies but that subsequently have decreasing profits.

“Quality companies have a substantially better behavior than the rest of the philosophies”, Galán also highlighted. Hence the insistence on investing in quality companies. According to Galán, “the stock market is one of the most profitable assets together with real estate, but with considerably less risks.” According to data from Renta 4, the stock market beats all assets in the long term. In periods of five years, equities obtain annualized returns of 7%. That is, the equity doubles in 10 years. In 20, it is multiplied by four.

The Odds of Negative Returns on European Equities, since 1986 and including dividends is 26% in one year; 19% in three; 23% in five and 12% in 10 years. In 15 and 20 years, the chances are 0%.

In the case of the Spanish stock market, since 1992 and also including dividends, the chances of obtaining negative returns are 36% in one year, 35% in three years and 35% in five. From the age of 10 the chances are 0%.

Galán advises Do not panic, because the market has always overcome all shocks. Recessions last around six to 20 months, while periods of expansion last between five and 10 years. In other words, “the growth periods are longer and more powerful.”

Optimism for the Ibex 35

With the IBEX 35 trading at 18 times profits, like Europe, and the US above 22 times, in all cases exceeding its historical averages, equities are apparently expensive. “But the pandemic is not over,” says Galán, emphasizing that “the first quarter is not going to be a normalized quarter.” We must wait until 2022. Thinking back to that date, “the valuations are reasonable, even attractive”, with a forecast of PER for the selective of the Spanish stock market of 13 times.

With earnings still below 2019, there is potential for improvement. For this reason, at Renta 4 Gestora they are optimistic, even by valuation, for the stock markets in the coming months. The impact of the coronavirus crisis that the Ibex 35 suffered last year, with a worse performance than the European stock markets and the Wall Street indices, could turn into a favor. “Since February, the Spanish stock market has been flying, sincerely it has a long journey,” says Galán.

In 2020 the Ibex 35 was excluded from the recovery which began to be produced from April to June. After October, when the Spanish stock market fell again to practically minimums, With the announcement of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines, the Spanish selective was the best index in November and since then it has not stopped climbing. “We believe that there are reasons to be optimistic. Many of the companies that we have in our portfolio have been very impacted by the crisis ”, adds Galán. In the distribution of the Renta 4 Bolsa portfolio The presence of the consumer sector (17.70%), industrial (17%), materials (15.40%) and technology (10%) stands out, with zero exposure to banks.

With a weight of 5.40%, the first position is Repsol. Inditex accounts for 5%, the same as Viscofan. With 4.5% Amadeus and Ferrovial, while Cellnex has 4% of the portfolio, the same percentage as Iberdrola and Grifols.

Macroeconomic and political noise could play against the Ibex 35, “That now we have a lot”, and that they are variables that “detract from what is important, which is the generation of profits,” says Galán, who emphasizes that in the Spanish stock market there are few companies that depend only on Spain, which “It gives a lot more peace of mind.”

About the effect that European funds for economic recovery after the coronavirus crisis may have on the Spanish stock market, The expert anticipates that digitization and environmental or renewable companies will benefit, with their markets boosting in the next decade. “Public funds will accelerate investments” and companies such as Indra, Cellnex, Telefónica or Iberdrola, Naturgy or Endesa “will capture part of that business.”
