Over the course of the past week, Bulltick’s research team hit the television airwaves, providing valuable insight and investment recommendations during a time of heightened market turmoil and roiled asset prices. Kathryn Rooney Vera, senior macroeconomic strategist and director at Bulltick Capital Markets, appeared on Fox Business January 27th, weighing in on the emerging markets, specifically discussing Turkey’s attempt to curb its currency plunge with a huge interest rate hike and its impact on emerging market sentiment. During an interview for CNN en español, Alberto Bernal, Bulltick’s head of research and managing director, discussed Argentina y Venezuela– see his January 14th CNNEE interview here. Alberto expressed that he remains positive with the upcoming Argentinean regime change, a view shared by his colleague, Kathryn, on her January 27th CNBC interview. Kathryn appeared on CNBC January 29th, 2014 discussing Latin America’s market woes after significant Argentine peso devaluation added to market skittishness with regard to the emerging markets – see her CNBC interview here.
As the final week of January wound down, Kathryn appeared on Bloomberg Television at the closing bell to discuss the week’s market action, specifically the rout in EM and the impact on US equity markets – see her Bloomberg TV interview here. Kathryn reminded investors that panic does create profits. She advised investors to differentiate among the winners and losers based on the country's deficit stability and history of friendliness towards foreign investments. Kathryn championed Mexico for its fiscal and energy reforms, and declared Mexico among the winners during her interview by Bloomberg, last week. She also commented on the effects of emerging market volatility on low Tech earnings, the exception being Facebook, who celebrated ten years in existence this past week.
Alberto again appeared on CNN en español on February 4th to discuss the seemingly unstoppable success of Facebook—his CNNEE interview can be viewed here. He recognized the demographic change in users that Facebook has been able to overcome and attributed the company’s success to its low maintenance costs, its vast human capital and the millions of users Facebook has yet to reach. Kathryn appeared on CNN International February 3rd –see CNN interview here - explaining the cause of the rout across Emerging Markets assets and the contagion to developed markets.
