I seldom write about stocks I like on my Switzer Daily website as I leave those thoughts and insights to the Switzer Report. However, I broke with that tradition last week ahead of trade talks in Washington because the breakfast team on Sky News — Laura Jayes and Peter Stefanovic — asked me to pinpoint 10 stocks worth investing in before the trade deal.
So effectively, this is the first chance I’ve had to share my views since I wrote my piece and Donald Trump has delivered what he calls “Phase 1” of the trade deal. And Phase 2 and its negotiations are set to start in three weeks’ time, after the weekend’s agreement is “papered”, as the President put it.
What follows are the straightforward stocks and investments that should do well in the short term as well as the medium term, as I suspect the Trump team construct a credible trade truce to set themselves up for a positive start to the 2020 election campaign.
