US Stocks: Still Worth a Punt?

As Artemis announce plans to launch five new funds investing in American companies in September, we ask: is there still value to be found in the US stock market?

In April this year Artemis obtained Threadneedle’s US equities desk. Fund managers Cormac Weldon and Stephen Moore – along with five equity analysts – left Threadneedle after a combined history at the firm of more than 30 years, to set up an entirely new US equities desk in St James.

At Threadneedle, the team’s American Fund earned a Bronze Rating from Morningstar analysts, although following their departure it has been moved to Under Review.

This week, Artemis revealed that the team will be launching five funds in September, three long-only equity funds; lower risk, higher risk and smaller companies, and two long-short funds; one with 150 holdings, and one higher conviction fund.
