    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.

    By Ryan Nauman 30 Jul 2018

    This week marked the busiest week of the second quarter earnings season, as the S&P 500 rose modestly on solid earnings and promising trade news. To date, 53% of the S&P 500 companies have announced second quarter earnings, with 83% of them beating estimates (FactSet). Lets start with the headliner, Facebook. Most were expecting big numbers from Facebook, but the big numbers they received were not the ones they expected, as in a $120 billion decrease in market value. Facebook plunged after reporting mixed earnings, while providing a downbeat forecast for the remainder of the year. The numerous scandals/sins they were able to withstand over the past few months finally caught up to them. Read more from Ryan Nauman's weekly recap...

    After the backlash President Trump received for his performance during his press conference with Russia’s President Putin and the corresponding clean-up of the mess, Trump proceeded to divert everyone's attention back to trade and some meddling of his own. President Trump warned China that he is “ready to go” with $500 billion in new tariffs on Chinese goods. He didn’t stop there, as he accused the EU and China of devaluing their currencies, and the cherry on top was his meddling in the Fed’s interest rate policy making. Thankfully, companies reported solid earnings to help keep equity markets afloat. Read more from Ryan Nauman's weekly recap...

    By Ryan Nauman 09 Jul 2018

    The initial $34 billion tariffs levied against Chinese goods kicked in on Friday. This is the first part of the $50 billion worth of tariffs President Trump announced in June, with the remaining $16 billion scheduled to take effect in two weeks. President Trump warned that the White House is willing to impose an additional $500 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese goods, depending on the response from China. Despite the official start to the trade tariffs between the U.S. and China, and a threat that there could be much more to come from President Trump, the major U.S. equity markets ended the week in the black.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 07.02.18

    By Ryan Nauman 02 Jul 2018

    Is anyone else having difficulty keeping score of the back-and-forth trade talk? Or maybe I am just growing tired of all the rhetoric. Regardless, it is something that must be discussed, as markets have been swinging up and down based on the news, or in some cases, tweets. Markets have been range bound, as investors have taken a wait-and-see approach, which seems prudent, as uncertainty reigned the week prior to the initial U.S. and Chinese trade tariffs taking effect. The uncertainty was evident this week, due to conflicting statements from the White House regarding restricting Chinese investment in U.S. technology and intellectual property. The initial reports caused a sell-off in tech stocks, only to have techstocks rebound later in the week, as the tone from the White House softened. Recently, I wrote about the run technology was on, in part due to investors believing that technology was immune to the trade talk, well, that changed. This week we learned that no sectors are truly immune from the trade scuttlebutt. Read more from Ryan Nauman's weekly recap...
