    Trending: Transport Equities Up Despite Lack of Progress on Trade

    Transport equities have rebounded of late as the asset category is trading at the lowest valuation in a long time. The advance earned transport stocks the first place in the list and were followed by bonds, which saw falling yields lately as risks to the global economy increased. Africa equities took the middle spot and were followed by the European shared currency, which was hit by a strong dollar and a dovish European Central Bank. Silver closes the list.

    Trending: Chinese Stimulus Pledge Provides Impetus for African Economies

    The South African economy received a boon last week from its largest trade partner, China, as authorities in Beijing promised to implement monetary and fiscal stimulus. In the U.S., despite the three-week funding deal announced last Friday, airlines were brought to the very edge by the longest government shutdown in history. FAANGs caught this week’s podium with earning releases while worries regarding the slowdown in global economic activity and uncertainties over Sino-U.S. relations took a toll on the U.S. dollar. Finally, investors took interest in leveraged bets on commodities as oil surged after U.S. slapped fresh sanctions on Venezuela.

    The Trouble With Market-Cap Weighting

    The stock market, like any other market, is simply the sum of all transactions for shares of publicly listed companies, millions of which are conducted every day. Hour by hour, minute by minute, Benjamin Graham's voting machine is hard at work as market participants express their opinions regarding a company's future prospects through the price at which its shares transact. A company's share price resulting from this system, when multiplied by total shares outstanding, forms its market capitalization.

    Don't Expect Much From The South Africa ETF

    The iShares MSCI South Africa ETF (NYSE: EZA) is up 3.28 percent over the past week, reducing its year-to-date loss to just over 22 percent. South Africa, Africa's largest economy, isn't in the tenuous positions of other emerging markets, such as Argentina and Turkey, but analysts and market observers remain reserved about the near-term rebound prospects for South Africa's economy. “South Africa's latest economic plan is unlikely to deliver a significant boost to economic growth,” Fitch Ratings says.
