Social Data Tools Provide Investing Intel Before Analysts Can

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 18:51:00 -0500

The ultimate value of a company isn’t determined by analysts, traders or stock charts, but rather by the consumers that choose to buy the company’s products, or not. Consumers are speaking out loud and clear. All investors need to do is listen to them. Here's how it works.

10 Countries Getting Big Bucks From Corporate InvestorsThe 2016 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence IndexNo. 10: SingaporeNo. 9: IndiaNo. 8: FranceNo. 7: AustraliaNo. 6: JapanNo. 5: The United KingdomNo. 4: GermanyNo. 3: CanadaNo. 2: ChinaUSA! USA! USA!

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 16:44:00 -0500

Investors are turning their attention to developed economies in North America and Europe because of profound uncertainty in many emerging markets, according to A.T. Kearney's annual foreign direct investment survey.

Singapore is the largest gainer in this year’s Index, rising five spots to reach 10th place. Investors from the Asia Pacific region and in the IT industry are the most interested in investing in Singapore.

India’s rise demonstrates its increasing attractiveness to foreign investors. Reforms such as the “Make in India” initiative underline the government’s commitment to attracting foreign capital, A.T. Kearney says.

France maintains its eighth position in the Index. The “Creative France” campaign targets investors from 10 key countries, including the U.K., Germany, Japan, Singapore, and the U.A.E.

Foreign investors are optimistic about Australia’s business environment, despite the government’s mixed signals about its openness to foreign investment having rejected a Chinese bid for farmland in April 2016.

Japan rises one spot this year to sixth place—its highest ranking ever. The government is committed to raising its FDI stock from 17.8 trillion yen in 2015 to 35 trillion yen by 2020.

The United Kingdom falls two spots from 2015 but remains among the top five in the Index. A decision to exit the E.U. could reduce the growth in future FDI inflows, however, corporate executives tell A.T. Kearney.

Germany, the top-ranked European country, holds its highest position in 14 years. The weaker euro makes German exports more competitive, while reducing the cost for foreign investors. The same holds for most of Western Europe.

Canada rises one spot to rank third in A.T. Kearney's 2016 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index. Long-awaited reforms under the Investment Canada Act are making the country an increasingly attractive destination.

China holds second place for the fourth consecutive year and attracts broad-based investor interest. Executives from industrial, service-sector, and IT firms all rank China among the best places to invest long term.

The United States is No. 1 for the fourth year in a row. The economy is proving resilient to the risks facing other countries, including risks posed by many other developed markets.

In the Metro Movers Report, Trulia analyzed nearly 100 million property searches on its site from July 1 through Sept. 30, tallying the location of users and where they were looking for homes. Trulia ranked the Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Metropolitan Divisions with the most potential for growth in housing demand. It compared the highest number of searches from non-locals looking to move to these areas versus the number of locals looking to leave. An index ranking of '1' means the number of out-of-towners searching to move there is equal to the number of locals searching to leave. A '2' on the index means the number of people searching to come is double the number searching to leave. The higher the number, the more people showing interest from other places.
