    A lot of Noise, not so Much Action

    By David Ader 17 Aug 2018

    It is rare, I admit, for me to find the silver lining in a given cloud, but I managed to in the recent week.  Perhaps I was inspired in this search by the approaching 10th anniversary of the Lehman bankruptcy and the differences and similarities between now and then but I’ll save those thoughts for now.  In any event, the silver lining I refer to comes in the form of household debt.  The Quarterly Report on Household Debt & Credit from the New York Fed showed a relatively modest rise in overall debt to $13.3 trillion, a gain of $82 billion.  I suppose that is the ‘bad’ news if you consider debt a bad thing for households.

    It's all Good… in Nominal Terms

    By David Ader 10 Aug 2018

    In a recent speech, NY Fed President Williams spoke about “The Future Fortunes of R-star; Are they really rising?” I took a look at the graph of the estimate for the Natural Rate of Interest to see what’s going on with this particular measure. In a 2015 paper, Williams wrote that IF the estimated rate stayed low, “future episodes of hitting zero lower bound are likely to be frequent and long lasting.” In 2017, he looked at the details to conclude that a low R-star was 1) not a US story alone, but a global one, 2) it was likely to be long lasting and) it was not confined merely to low risk assets. As such, unusual monetary policies were likely to be the norm and that with globally low interest rates risks to financial stability are greater than they were.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 08.06.18

    By Ryan Nauman 06 Aug 2018

    Solid second quarter earnings continue to help offset escalating trade concerns, as the S&P 500 finished the week up .80%. Todate, more than 80% of S%P companies have reported earnings, with 80% beating estimates (FactSet). Here are some of the highlights, which came from the tech sector. Apple beat earnings estimates and provided better-than-expected forward guidance after experiencing their best third quarter earnings ever. The announcement helped the embattled tech sector move forward after a tough week, and propelled Apple to be the first $1 trillion U.S. company. Caterpillar reported better-than-expected earnings and raised its full-year outlook, despite saying tariffs will reduce the bottom line between $100 and $200 million in the second half. Proctor & Gamble, Pfizer, DowDuPont, and Aetna all reported better-than-expected earnings. Meanwhile, Tesla reported wider-than-expected losses, but to the delight of investors, experienced smaller cash burn than expected, while also reaffirming profitability during the second half.
