    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    Data from the red-hot housing market continues during the upcoming week with the release of existing and new home sales. Both numbers should be strong, particularly new homes, as we found out this week the confidence for home builders is at record highs due to the increase in demand for new homes, as limited existing home inventory has pushed buyers to build. Additionally, the manufacturing and services PMIs for September will be released on Wednesday. After rising above the breakpoint level of 50, which signals expansionary conditions, the question remains will both PMIs continue to signal expansion.

    The week ahead will be highlighted by the Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting announcement and Chairman Powell’s follow-up press conference. It is well documented that the Fed plans on keeping interest rates low for the foreseeable future as the central bank has laid their monetary policy on the table so there shouldn’t be much anticipation in terms of their rate policy. However, many may want to listen to their economic forecasts and expectations moving forward. As for economic data, the week contains multiple releases from the red-hot housing market. Additionally, retail sales for the month of August will be released which will be widely watched as the pace of sales slowed in July. Finally, consumer sentiment will be updated, which is an important indicator for consumer spending and the potential health of the economy.

    The highlight for the week ahead is sure to be the August jobs report. Employment levels have rebounded the past few months while the pace of unemployment claims has slowed, so this upcoming report will be widely watched. Additionally, the manufacturing sector will take center stage on Tuesday as investors hope conditions continue to improve and signal expansion.

    Q2 2020 PSN Top Guns – The Great Reversal

    Q2 2020 PSN Top Guns – The Great Reversal

    What a difference a quarter makes. After experiencing its worst quarter since the Great Financial Crisis during the first quarter, the S&P 500 index rebounded during the second quarter to post a +20.54% return, which marked the best quarter since 1998. Just as the coronavirus caused chaos during the first quarter, easing concerns regarding the pandemic, historic monetary and fiscal stimulus packages and the easing of coronavirus induced lockdowns provided optimism for investors which drove the historic rally. Additionally, economic data stabilized and signaled the worst may be behind us.

    The second quarter earnings cycle is coming to a close with 89% of the S&P 500 constituents on the board for announcing their earnings, while the week ahead includes names like Cisco, Macys, and Applied Materials. As for economic data, sentiment for consumers and small-businesses will be widely watched as uncertainty regarding the pandemic continues, however, the headline releases will be inflation and retail sales. Retail sales have mounted a strong comeback after an epic collapse during the pandemic shutdown, however, will the comeback continue or will it slow as the number of coronavirus cases continued to climb higher July.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    The week ahead is another busy week for earnings releases. The week may not have as many blue-chip names as this week, but it does include companies that were hindered by the economic shutdown like Walt Disney, Wynn Resorts, and TripAdvisor. On the flip side, the week includes some companies who may have benefited from the shelter-in-place trade such as Square, Roku and Clorox. As for economic releases, the headliner will be Friday’s jobs report. After the initial spike in unemployment, the labor market rebounded the past two months. However, the number of new coronavirus cases has been on the rise and resulted in some new restrictions on businesses, which may again adversely affect employment numbers.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 07.27.20

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    The week ahead is one of the busiest weeks of the Q2 earnings season which includes some of the largest and most popular traded companies. The releases that I am particularly intrigued by are Apple, Amazon.com, Alphabet and Caterpillar. As for economic data, the first iteration of second quarter GDP will be released, which is expected to show the worst contraction in economic growth since the Great Financial Crisis. The additional item I will be closely watching and listening to will be the FOMC meeting announcement and Chairman Powell’s follow-up press conference. Very few expect the FOMC to make adjustments to its monetary policies, however, their comments about the future path of their policies, the health of the U.S. economy, and the end of the CARES Act will be closely watched.

    Earnings season picks up steam during the week ahead. The week contains earnings releases from companies that have taken the brunt of the COVID-19 crisis, such as United Airlines, American Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. Meanwhile, we also hear from some of the tech companies who benefited from the very poplar “shelter-in-place” and momentum trades, such as Microsoft, Amazon.com, and Snap Inc. With that being said, I most look forward to Tesla’s call, which is typically very eventful. Tesla shares, which have been the poster child of the “momentum trade”, have been on a rocket since March 18 (+316%) and is currently trading at 223 times forward earnings. In order to justify the current price, Tesla needs to release good earnings and a promising forward outlook.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    The week ahead is full of attention-grabbing economic data releases and marks the begging of the Q2 earnings season. The headliner will be retail sales which experienced a historic increase last month and will be a driver of market performance next week. Retail sales could surprise again on the upside considering businesses continued to reopen and consumers were itching to escape being quarantined. Furthermore, earnings season kicks off with big name banks, Netflix, Delta Airlines, and Johnson & Johnson reporting. This cycle is full of uncertainty as a record number of corporations of withdrawn forward guidance, while better-than-expected economic data are sure to add some surprises to this cycle.

    Without a doubt, the headline release for the week ahead is the jobs report. The last two jobs reports have been a rollercoaster with the April report showing a historic jump in the number of unemployed and a historic spike in the unemployment rate. However, the May report was staggering, but in the opposite direction, as a record amount of people went back to work. The June release is sure to capture the attention of many as businesses begin to reopen their doors following the COVID-19 lockdown.

    Recent economic data has surprised many on the upside and may be a signal that the worst is behind us. The week ahead will provide us with additional significant data points to either support the growing optimism or may set us back on our outlook for the economic rebound. Data releases that I will have a close eye on include the flash PMI readings as well as consumer sentiment, which may signal their willingness to spend and help support the economic rebound.

    Investors have turned their sights back onto the COVID-19 curve and the number new cases, which has driven markets this past week. That trend will continue this week, as more and more businesses and economies begin to reopen. As for economic data, the week ahead is heavy on housing data, which will be an intriguing follow considering the low interest rates, but has the pandemic slowed the pace of permits and housing starts? Additionally, regional manufacturing data will be released which will provide some insight on the overall health of manufacturing on a national level.

    During the upcoming holiday shortened trading week we will get our second glimpse of first quarter GDP growth, which currently sits at -4.78%. Additionally, we will see if the recent market rally and the reopening of economies has positively impacted consumer sentiment. Finally, the Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge, personal consumption expenditure measure, will be released on Friday, which will provide us with more data regarding the impact low gas prices and shrinking consumer demand has had on prices.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    The housing sector will be front and center next week as we find out how the sector is coping with the shelter-in-place dynamics. Additionally, we will get the initial (flash) PMI readings on the manufacturing and services sectors. During past recessions, the services sector fared better than the manufacturing sector. However, that looks to change during this recession, as the shelter-in-place mandate has crippled services-oriented businesses such as restaurants, travel, and tourism more so than manufactures who are producing goods that are still needed for everyday life.
