Some of what we've called

Short EM Equities versus the S&P 500 (December 2010 - July 2020; a 190% profit with very low volatility)
Recommended the short EM equities / long the S&P 500 strategy in December 14, 2010 and closed it on July 30, 2020. Consistently, underweighted EM stocks versus their DM peers from 2010 to July 2020.

Short EM currencies versus the US Dollar (2011 – July 2020)
Shorted a basket of EM currencies versus the US dollar since 2011 and booked profits on July 9, 2020.

The investment call for the last decade: Made the case for underweighting commodities and overweighting health care and technology in the decade of 2010 (special report from June 2010).
Commodities stocks were among the worst performers and technology and health care share prices were the best performing equity sectors in both DM and EM from 2010 to 2020.
