4 Stocks To Watch: Trading The G20 Summit
Leaders of the world’s largest nations are meeting in Pittsburgh on Thursday and Friday of this week for their third summit in less than a year to discuss the global financial crisis and what’s next.
Although they’re expected to discuss a wide range of issues, following are the topics mostly likely to impact investors:
-Limits on compensation for financial executives. Experts consider this the most likely topic for action with France's President Nicolas Sarkozy threatening to walk out if nothing concrete happens to contain banker bonuses.
-Tighter fiscal controls on banks, in order to force higher cash reserves to buffer downturns.
-Easing out of governments' stimulus spending.
-Shaping policies to make growth balanced and sustainable globally. This could require China and other large developing nations to boost their domestic markets and depend less on U.S. consumers to fuel global trade.
-Liberalizing trade and curbing protectionism. This could be inflamed by Obama's recent decision to raise tariffs on Chinese tires.
WHAT MUST YOU KNOW?
Of course what's mentioned above is just the tip of the iceberg. What must you know to trade this G20 meeting? For insights we turn to David Riedel of Riedel Research.
Riedel is closely watching the dollar. Ultimately he thinks developments make the dollar weaker. "I think the (weak dollar) has to happen to boost US exports and for the health of the global economy. That's a big initiative for the administration," says Riedel.
He's especially bearish on the dollar as compared to China's currency, the yuan. "The Chinese want to have more consumption going on domestically and the US wants to have more exports and less imports."
Beyond currencies, Riedel thinks developments will be bullish for the growing consumer "not just in Brazil but across Latin America" and likes playing it with food names.
Ahead of the broadcast he suggested the follow plays:

"I think David is right on with these trades," echoes Tim Seymour. He's right on with his view globally and Zhongpin is actually trading at a discount when compared with Tyson."
