Growing middle-class income could mean increased spending on consumer products and services in emerging markets.
Curated by Motif Investing
Emerging markets have 70% of the world's population but account for only 35% of global GDP. That's about to change as increasing population growth and urbanization equals a growing middle class population in these countries. Consumer spending in developing countries is expected to grow three times faster than in developed nations, reaching $6 trillion by 2020.
This impending demographic shift could benefit companies that serve this new class of consumers, who will expand by 3 billion over the next two decades. With higher incomes, spending on necessities like food and apparel, as well as on discretionary items such as automobiles and travel, stands to grow in the long run. And that could drive outperforming growth for companies and provide a lift to a wide array of emerging market stocks. Still, there is no certainty within emerging markets, which carry unique risks to keep in mind, including political and economic risks.

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. (“Gol Linhas” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GOL). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980. The investigation concerns whether Gol Linhas and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices. [Click here for information about joining the class action]In mid-June 2020, Gol’s auditor, KPMG, raised significant concerns about Gol during the accounting firm’s first annual audit of the Company after being hired in 2019, stating that it had an “adverse opinion” on the strength of Gol's internal controls regarding the preparation of financial statements, adding that there was “substantial doubt” about the airline's ability to exist a year from now.” KPMG’s adverse opinion prompted Gol to carry out a review of its financial reporting procedures. Then, on July 23, 2020, Gol announced the termination of KPMG as its external auditor. On this news, Gol’s American depositary receipt (“ADR”) price fell $0.65, or 7.05%, to close at $7.25 per ADR on July 23, 2020.The Pomerantz Firm, with offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Paris is acknowledged as one of the premier firms in the areas of corporate, securities, and antitrust class litigation. Founded by the late Abraham L. Pomerantz, known as the dean of the class action bar, the Pomerantz Firm pioneered the field of securities class actions. Today, more than 80 years later, the Pomerantz Firm continues in the tradition he established, fighting for the rights of the victims of securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, and corporate misconduct. The Firm has recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages awards on behalf of class members. See www.pomerantzlaw.com.CONTACT: Robert S.

Trade tensions between China and the U.S. are once again on the rise over President Donald Trump's threats to ban TikTok and WeChat in the U.S. starting on Sunday. With the November election now only about six weeks away, S3 Partners analyst Ihor Dusaniwsky said short sellers are targeting Chinese stocks in a major way.Dusaniwsky said China and Hong Kong short interest now totals $104 billion, an increase of $2.03 billion in the past month. The dispute between Trump and China over TikTok could be a preview of what's to come between now and the election, and short sellers seem to believe Chinese stocks could suffer.Most Shorted China Stocks: Here are the five U.S.-listed Chinese stocks with the largest outstanding short positions, according to S3: * Alibaba Group Holding Ltd - ADR (NYSE: BABA), $11.72 billion in short interest. * JD.Com Inc (NASDAQ: JD), $3.24 billion in short interest. * Pinduoduo Inc - ADR (NASDAQ: PDD), $2.95 billion in short interest. * GSX Techedu Inc (NYSE: GSX), $2.38 billion in short interest. * Nio Inc - ADR (NYSE: NIO), $1.47 billion in short interest.Short sellers have been particularly aggressive in betting against Alibaba and JD.com in the past 30 days. Alibaba's short interest has increased by $1.48 billion in that time, while JD.com's short interest is up by $320.7 million. Nio's short interest is headed in the other direction, dropping by $642.5 million in the past month.Dusaniwsky said Chinese stock short sellers have had some home run trades in 2020 led by Luckin Coffee Inc - ADR (PINK: LKNCY), which has netted short sellers a $1.15 billion profit this year. However, short sellers have taken year-to-date losses of $2.51 billion on Alibaba, $2.45 billion on GSX Techedu and $1.77 billion on Nio."HK-China short sellers are down -$15.98 billion in mark-to-market losses for the year but are up +$935 million in September mark-to-market profits as the Hang Seng retreated -1.79%," Dusaniwsky said.Benzinga's Take: According to PredictIt, Joe Biden now has a 59% chance of defeating Trump in November. Given Trump has been extremely tough on China throughout his first term, any momentum Biden has leading into the election would presumably be bad news for Chinese stock short sellers.Related Links:Why Trump's TikTok Ban Could Be 'Fort Sumter Moment' In Cold Tech War Between US, China 'Partnership Better Than Acquisition': Analysts React To Oracle-TikTok DealSee more from Benzinga * Could iPhone 12 Be The Best-Selling Model Since iPhone 6? * Short Sellers Have Lost Nearly .3B On DraftKings, Penn National(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
