What Does Global Growth Say About Stock Prices?

It wasn't that long ago when the US economy seemed like the only regional power heading in the right direction. Europe was battling record joblessness and teetering on the edge of recession. Japan continued its 20 year tradition of malaise. And the Chinese growth miracle seemed near the end of the road.

Gladly all of these regions are showing signs of renewed strength. For example, on Wednesday we discovered that Eurozone GDP came in better than expected. Japan also recently impressed with a +4% GDP growth rate...well above estimates. China has emerged from a soft patch with a string of positive economic readings.

But things are not only looking up on the international front. This week has provided even more fresh ammo for the health of the US economy. Most notably, the Empire State Manufacturing soared from 9.8 to 25.2. And Retail Sales were better than expected. No wonder estimates for Q3 GDP are above the impressive +2.6% showing for Q2.

With 40% of US corporate profits coming from abroad, then all the above is a simple equation pointing to more profit growth and share price appreciation ahead. However, if you are looking for truly exceptional growth, then you should check out our latest special report on the booming cybersecurity industry. Right now it is on course to become a $170 billion a year sector where we have uncovered 4 picks that have a great chance to provide investors with incredible upside potential.
