  • On Friday 136 countries, including Ireland, agreed to a global minimum tax rate of 15% for large companies. Theoretically, this new agreement will cover 90% of the global economy, but many analysts question its real impact. It's likely that not every country will be able to get their legislatures to implement the new tax rate by the 2023 deadline. If it does get passed by most countries, tech hardware, some media services, and healthcare companies look like they may be the most exposed.
  • The KBW Bank Index is up almost 40% this year (more than 2x the S&P500's performance). Some of this growth has been spurred on by the belief that interest rates will rise when the Federal Reserve begins to taper. In fact, three quarters of the bank index has risen 10% or more since September 22nd when Chairman Powell indicated the tapering would start sooner than some expected.  
  • Investors that want exposure to the cannabis industry are often forced to buy Canadian companies since few companies that have operations in the US are publicly traded. This may be problematic since the marijuana industry in Canada is becoming less profitable. Currently there are more than 500 companies competing in Canada and there is enough indoor cultivation to supply 200% of country's demand. Additionally, the cannabis market is expected to be 5x larger in the US compared to Canada by the end next year.  
  • Roughly 60% of all new ETFs that were launched in 2020 and 2021 have been actively managed. This equated to 379 new funds, which is more active ETFs than the total of the last ten years combined. While passive funds still make up 96% of the entire ETF business, data shows that active funds are attracting 11% of all new funds.
