Bank of America strategists recently published an update on the firm’s “Global Wave” model.As of last week, the Global Wave turned positive, which historically preceded a 14.2 per cent gain in global stocks (as measured by the MSCI All Country World Index).

The report included the firm’s list of “Boosters” – the stocks that perform well during an economic upturn.

However, these are more than just high-beta stocks.  Other characteristics include low S&P quality ranking, small capitalisation, negative correlation to bonds, cyclical earnings growth and high dispersion in earnings estimates.
