North American Portfolio Strategist Martin Roberge notes that Greek scares are flaring up again. Widening Greek bond yield spreads to German Bunds have coincided with equity market turbulence over the past year. Martin believes that the current Greek risks are smaller than through the last two Greek scares. If markets are to correct harder, he believes US$ strength will be the culprit.
In terms of portfolios, Martin reiterates his call to overweight US home builders and scale back on railroads.
