Seek safety in strong balance sheets

If cash is too safe, then safety should be sought in the strongest balance sheets, whether one is investing in bonds, in credit, in currencies and/or in stocks. And, as a rule of thumb, (and excluding real house prices in the US) those things that have ‘gone up the most’ over the past few years are likely to be the things that ‘go down’ the most – so as well as equities, EM investors also need to be very careful.
