    Tariffs not a Negotiating Ploy

    By David Ader 13 Jul 2018

    I have to address those who think the tariffs are just part of a negotiating process that won’t be as ‘bad’ as threatened. Let me say at the onset that I’m aware of my proclivities towards pessimism and seeing the economy glass at, say, a 1.5-2% GDP trajectory for eternity. I try to work around that and probe for cavities in my arguments, but on this trade thing I’m coming up empty for the most part. I see tariffs as 1) hurting most US firms in a global economy, 2) creating a lot of uncertainty which will inhibit investment, 3) cause more job losses than job gains, 4) give us some inflation in the coming months that will, 5) encourage the Fed to hike, while 6) doing pretty much the same for trading counterparties and 7) leave the US as an entity, concept, leader in a disdained global position that will take years to unwind, if ever. And all that when we’re increasing the need for foreigners to buy our debt and reducing their ability to do so. Read more from David Ader's latest musings...

    What Will Cause the Next Recession?

    By David Ader 06 Jul 2018

    I may be affected by the blistering humidity I’ve experienced from Lake Memphremagog to Westport. Canadian lakes should not accompany 98 degrees and a similar humidity reading; it’s Canada for goodness sake! In any event, it’s with this droopy mindset that I figured I’d jump the yield curve story and talk about what could cause a recession by 2020. I do want to pay homage to Ben Levisohn’s lead piece in Barron’s, “The Bull’s Last Stand,” for inspiration. Read more from David Ader's latest musings...

    Skipping Summer Doldrums This Year

    By David Ader 29 Jun 2018

    If I recall correctly, never an easy task, I concluded last week saying I was especially interested in the sentiment stuff coming out to see how the old trade-tariff excitement translated.  Well I suspect the best read has been provided by the stock market, which does not need much more commentary; for all the tax-cut brouhaha, the S&P 500 is right at the 50% mark of the year’s range (2700) and pretty much at last December’s highs.  A lot ventured yet nothing gained.

    No Need to Wait for Curve Inversions

    By David Ader 22 Jun 2018

    An FT piece by John Authers made note that the defensive strategy of dividend investing isn’t working so well as yields have lifted.  I’ll show you a chart of what I’m looking at in a moment, but his piece has interesting insights that are worth your attention.   One is of the change in the composition of the S&P 500 in the context of index investing.  Dividend-plays tend to go with stocks that are lower quality within the S&P 500, and lower momentum as well, so are not in an economic sweet spot.  Further, and importantly, the dividend yield has edged below the 10-year creating a compelling competitive force.

    Curve Speaks, I Listen

    By David Ader 15 Jun 2018

    Let’s talk a bit more about the FOMC statement and its cut.  Yes, I mean cut of these words; “The Committee expects that economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant further gradual increases in the federal funds rate; the federal funds rate is likely to remain, for some time, below levels that are expected to prevail in the longer run.”   The Fed isn’t mincing words here.  What they are saying is they are more confident in the economy, inflation, and that the Funds rate will now move to the longer-run objectives.  It’s reasonable to see gradual to mean 25 bp hikes each quarter.
