CALL INVITE | Germany: Still Bullish

Today at 11am ET Hedgeye’s European analyst Matthew Hedrick will lead a discussion on why we are still bullish on the German equity market.


In the wake of ECB President Mario Draghi’s big QE announcement in January, we’ll discuss the impact of QE, where we see policy measures heading, and why we see Germany as the biggest ‘winner’ of central bank intervention.


Watch a short segment  below in which Hedgeye's Director of Research, Daryl Jones, highlights the key points of our bullish thesis on German stocks ahead of today's call.



  • Draghi’s influence on the capital markets vs the real economy
  • Why Germany’s economy is poised to most benefit from QE

Takeaway: Asia is the bright spot for RCL and with earnings next Monday, can it lift results?

  • According to our sources, bookings have been hot for RCL’s ships in Asia (Mariner, Voyager, Quantum, Explorer, Legend) and likely above management expectations.
  • Almost all of the shorter dated itineraries have been completely sold out for the year.
  • There are still available cabins for the longer-dated itineraries but they account for only a fraction of RCL’s Asia business.
  • Pricing, on the other hand, have been mixed, with the older fleet underperforming Quantum by a wide margin

Instant Insight: We Remain Long Term Bulls On Germany

Instant Insight: We Remain Long Term Bulls On Germany - zen44


Germany is one equity market we want to highlight this morning.


The DAX continues to be in a bullish formation and we remain long term bulls. Exports account for 47% of German GDP, so Mario Draghi’s weak EUR policy is obviously a huge TAILWIND for Germany. In addition, their fundamentals are outperforming peers and are showing positive lift (business & economic confidence; IP, factory orders, etc).


Even as the DAX has had a major run over the past six months, over the past five years, it has dramatically underperformed its U.S. counterparts.  On a related note, tomorrow at 11am, our European Analyst Matt Hedrick will be presenting a 50-page deck that outlines that continued case to be long of German equities.
