Analysts expect a Chinese rebound in 2024

Chinese stocks have been out of favor in 2023, but that type of trend is often music to the ears of contrarians and value investors. Investors and traders from these two groups often look past short-term trends to identify value-based opportunities that can benefit from shifting perceptions in the financial markets.

Analysts at Goldman Sachs (GS) appear to count among those optimists who think better times lie ahead for the Chinese economy, as well as the Chinese financial markets. Goldman recently predicted the Chinese CSI 300 index will appreciate by roughly 15% next year. That forecast is underpinned by an expectation that Chinese corporate earnings will increase by as much as 10% in 2024. Read the whole story.

Beat inflation by growing your own food

Growing your own food can be a lifestyle choice. But doing it to save money might really help your budget. The cost of food at the supermarket is expected to increase by about 6.2% this year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. The price of processed fruits and vegetables will rise even more, reaching 9.3% this year, the USDA says.

Community gardens are flourishing across the United States, with more than 29,000 dotting the landscape in the 100 largest American cities, according to Garden Pals, a website dedicated to nature, gardening and plants.


Are community gardens not your thing? At-home and indoor gardens could provide herbs, vegetables and flowers. An even easier method, hydroponic gardening, has provided a user-friendly and non-demanding option for people to grow their own food. Hydroponic gardens use water-based mineral nutrient solutions instead of soil to grow plants. Like hydroponics, aeroponics doesn’t need soil to grow plants but instead relies on air to deliver nutrients. Read the whole story.

It's December. Do you know where your asset allocation is?

At year’s end, most investors and traders reassess and rebalance their portfolios— a process that involves buying or selling assets to maintain the desired balance of different asset classes. In December 2023, this review process is especially important.

One of the big reasons relates to the recent rally in the stock market. After dropping like a stone in September and October, the stock market rebounded sharply. Since Oct. 27, the S&P 500 is up 11%, while the Nasdaq 100 is up 13%. It’s not unusual for investors and traders to rebalance their holdings after a big move in the markets.

Moreover, there’s a risk that the U.S. economy could fall into recession during the first half of 2024. Read the whole story.
