Artificial intelligence offers the tantalising prospect of improving the perennial underperformance of companies with many employees.

In this podcast, Luke Templeman, Olga Cotaga and Adrian Cox discuss why high-staff companies tend to have a lower market capitalisation, thinner margins and lower growth rates than lower-staff ones. They analyse evidence that suggests AI could enable high-employee companies to get more value from each staff member. That may generate an outsize benefit in return on equity and potentially catalyse equity market returns in the years to come. [mehr]

Nachdem das BIP-Wachstum im ersten Quartal auf -0,3% revidiert wurde, gehen wir nun davon aus, dass das jährliche BIP-Wachstum im Jahr 2023 um 0,3% schrumpfen wird. Da die erwartete US-Rezession die deutsche Wirtschaftsdynamik zum Jahresende belastet, haben wir unsere Jahresprognose für das BIP-Wachstum im Jahr 2024 von 1,0% auf 0,5% gesenkt. In der Zwischenzeit belastet die Energiewendepolitik den Zusammenhalt der Regierung, wie das Scheitern einer Einigung über ein Klimagesetz in dieser Woche zeigt. Der Ausgabendruck und die Schuldenbremse verschärfen die Spannungen zusätzlich. Dennoch hat keine der drei Regierungsparteien ein Interesse daran, vorgezogene Neuwahlen auszulösen. [mehr]

With Q1 GDP growth revised to -0.3% we now expect annual GDP to shrink by 0.3% in 2023. With the expected US recession weighing on German economic momentum towards year end we have cut our annual forecast for GDP growth in 2024 to 0.5% from 1.0%. Meanwhile, the energy transition policy is putting strains on government cohesion, as can be seen from the failure to agree on a piece of climate legislation this week. Spending pressures and debt-brake limits add to tensions. Still, none of the three ruling parties has an incentive to trigger early elections. [mehr]

Artificial Intelligence has been a sizzling hot topic since ChatGPT was launched at the end of November. For once, the hype may be (almost) justified. At Deutsche Bank Research, we thought it was time to take a step back to give a clear perspective for investors and businesses, and to dig into what the latest flavour of AI, Generative AI, will really mean for our future.

The costs of electricity generation of different energy sources are often debated. Often, however, no distinction is made as to which specific costs are meant. While renewable energies have marginal costs close to zero and very competitive levelized costs of electricity, a high and increasing share of weather-dependent renewables leads to system costs. They result, for example, from the provision of back-up power plants and the falling average capacity utilization of all existing power plants. We discuss the different types of costs of power generation and note that investments in renewables are easier to realize than the construction of new back-up power plants. [mehr]

Companies with a large number of employees have a big problem. Quite simply, they fail to extract as much value from each staff member as do low-staff firms. Indeed, labour-intense firms tend to have a lower market cap, thinner margins, and lower growth rates.
AI may be the way forward. In this piece, we argue that AI will make workers more productive, particularly in high-staff firms. The reason is that the profitability of high-staff firms has the highest leverage to the performance of their labour force. AI will help upskill them and streamline repetitive and mundane tasks that are more prevalent in high-staff companies. [mehr]

Next week will mark six months since the launch of ChatGPT, the chatbot based on OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 large language model. There has been an extraordinary flurry of launches, hype and activity since then. Even in the past week, OpenAI, Google and Meta announced fresh products, OpenAI’s CEO testified in Congress, and the G7 called for “guardrails” on AI, among many other developments. [mehr]

Traditional Value and Quality investing is well understood, but how well does it translate to financial firms? In this video analyst Clayton Gillespie discusses the quant team’s latest research, which uses accounting, valuation and corporate finance insights to generate appropriate alphas for financial firms. Together they generate Value and Quality strategies that exhibit robust through-cycle behaviour and combine well with Value and Quality factors in the rest of the universe. [mehr]
