    Does tech dominance make S&P 500 tougher to beat?

    Does tech dominance make S&P 500 tougher to beat?

    In this week’s episode, Kyle is joined by Gary Robinson, who manages Baillie Gifford American and Baillie Gifford US Growth Trust. The duo discuss whether the dominance of a small number of technology stocks makes the S&P 500 harder to beat. 
    Ballie Gifford is well known for its approach of investing in exceptional growth companies, thinking long term, and paying no attention to the composition of stock market indices. Gary explains how his US fund differs from the S&P 500 index. 
    He also runs through the four “Magnificent Seven” stocks that he owns; Nvidia, Amazon, Tesla and Meta Platforms. The latter, formerly called Facebook, was a recent purchase.

    How to find winning stocks during a cost-of-living crisis

    How to find winning stocks during a cost-of-living crisis

    Over the past couple of years, high inflation and interest rate rises mean consumers have tightened their belts. This has proved a challenging backdrop for UK consumer stocks. However, as ever, there are both winners and losers. Joining Kyle to discuss how he's been approaching investing in consumer stocks during the cost-of-living crisis is fund manager David Smith, of Henderson High Income, an investment trust. Smith also explains how he started adjusting the portfolio as the pace of inflation slowed, and in anticipation of interest rates cut over the next year.
    Stocks mentioned in the podcast include: B&M European Value Retail, Whitbread, Diageo, Tesco, Coca-Cola Hellenic and Britvic.

    Why this emerging market pro prefers India to China

    Why this emerging market pro prefers India to China

    On this week’s show Kyle is joined by emerging market investor Carlos Hardenberg to discuss prospects for this investment area. Hardenberg, who manages Mobius Investment Trust, explains why he has very little exposure to China, but is much more positive on Taiwan, India and South Korea. He also explains how he approaches political risk and why technology is a key focus, accounting for just over 60% of the portfolio.
