The risk of a nominal growth surprise

October is a month that can be full of surprises. So far, 2020 has been full of bad surprises. But, what if we start to get some mean reversion back to positive surprises?

Today on INK Ultra Money, David Rosenberg gives us his take on the outlook for markets via a Real Vision interview with Ed Harrison. As usual, his base case is for subdued growth leading to disinflation or deflation. However, he seems to be shortening his time horizon for these downward forces to play out and makes the surprising admission that we could get a surprise jump in nominal GDP growth in light of all the government stimulus spending, much of which remains saved and could be spent if consumer confidence increases.

Lots of consumer spending dry powder left

I believe this thinking fits nicely with our core investment theme #1 which we updated today in our market report. In case you missed it, I will post the theme below, but in a nutshell it favours stocks such as those in the INK Canadian Insider Index that are geared towards rising inflation expectations.
