We believe there is a further de-rating to go. While Financials and Techare our biggest Overweights, Staples and Healthcare are our biggestUnderweights. The rationale for our Underweight is two-fold. One, de-ratinghas further to go. Two, continued downgrades to 2017E consensus EPS.
Second biggest EPS downgrades are in Staples. Figure 1 highlightsthat regional Staples have derated from a PBV vs. ROE premium of 112%to 76% currently. But we believe there is a further de-rating to at least thesector’s long-run historical average of 61%. The key catalyst for this furtherde-rating is continued downgrades to 2017E consensus EPS. Figure 2highlights a further downgrade of 1.1% in July, making it the second worstsector for EPS revisions this month. See Figures 2–3.
