    The NFIB Small Business Optimism index decreased by 0.9 of a point in September to a seasonally adjusted level of 107.9. NFIB President, Juanita Duggan said that “this is the longest streak of small business optimism in history, evidence that the tax cuts and regulatory rollbacks are paying off for the economy as a whole.” Juanita continued, “Members say that business is booming and prospects continue to look bright.” Despite the slowdown, the September reading is the third highest on record. The biggest problem for the businesses was finding quality labor. Read more from Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap and subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox each week!

    Equity markets nearly hit intraday records on Monday, as the U.S. and Canada reached a deal to rework NAFTA. Although the agreement is a big step in the right direction, the new pact isn’t a complete makeover of NAFTA. Instead, it is an updated NAFTA that includes key points on autos, auto workers, dairy, drugs, internet commerce, lumber, and steel. The agreement helped alleviate some trade concerns that have hovered over markets for several months and removed one uncertainty. The news was somewhat of a surprise as there were concerns that the agreement would not happen anytime soon. Despite the uncertainty with China, there has been some momentum on the trade front over the past few months. First Mexico, now Canada, and new negotiations have started between the U.S. and Japan. This momentum helped drive equities to near record highs early in the week. Read more from Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap and subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox each week!

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 10.01.18

    By Ryan Nauman 01 Oct 2018

    As widely expected, the Federal Reserve increased key interest rates to a range between 2% and 2.25%. The narrative following the hike was widely followed, since most expected the Fed to increase rates for a third time this year. The Fed pointed to another hike in December, three rate increases next year, and one more in 2020. Fed officials forecast the rate will level off at 3.4% in 2020 and 2021. The Fed also removed the word “accommodative” from their statement, which should provide the Fed more policy flexibility next year, and signals that the Fed may be closer to its neutral rate. Fed Chairman Powell stated that the economy is strong and growing at a healthy pace, while increasing their forecasts for future U.S. economic growth. Equity markets gave back earlier gains following Powell’s press conference. Powell mentioned that he does not foresee inflation spiking, which sent bond yields lower, while bank stocks fell after the statement.

    By Ryan Nauman 17 Sep 2018

    Outside of the Brexit dealings, emerging markets, trade tensions, and the U.S. economic expansion have captured the majority of the headlines recently, while the eurozone continues to chug along. The eurozone continues to grow, albeit, at a slower pace than the U.S. On Thursday, the ECB revised their forecasts for future economic growth downward by 0.1% to 2.0% in 2018, and 1.8% in 2019. The sluggish growth, along with Brexit uncertainty, political risks, and trade concerns continue to pose as headwinds for the region. Concerns remain that the turmoil in neighboring Turkey may spill over into the eurozone as well. Based on these risks, the ECB left rates unchanged, while staying the course with its plan to unwind its bond buying program at the end of this year and start raising key rates during the summer of 2019.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 09.10.18

    By Ryan Nauman 10 Sep 2018

    Despite a strong U.S. economy, solid corporate earnings, historically tight labor market, a confident consumer, a relatively accommodative monetary policy, fiscal stimulus, mild inflation, oh, and a historic bull market that has returned nearly 10% YTD as of August 31 (S&P 500), investors have turned up the defense. As you can see in the above “chart of the week”, investors have turned to defensive sectors since the beginning of July, even though economic conditions point to an environment that is good for equity markets. Health care, consumer goods, real estate, and utilities sectors, which are all traditionally viewed as defensive plays, have attracted inflows. On the fixed income side, investors have preferred short-term bonds rather than intermediate and long-term bonds. Regionally, investors continue to turn their backs on emerging market equities and have gone with the more conservative U.S. equity play.

    The week started with the U.S. and Mexico agreeing to a new trade deal to replace NAFTA. The accord between the two countries set momentum for a potential trilateral agreement including Canada. The U.S. and Canada rekindled trade talks following the agreement between the U.S. and Mexico, in hopes of coming to an agreement before a Friday deadline. An agreement did not happen, and the soft deadline was extended, as the two countries continue to work towards an agreement.

    The major global indexes finished the week in the black, as positive U.S. economic data and solid earnings helped offset ongoing trade tensions. The S&P 500 set a record for the longest bull market in history, eclipsing the previous mark set between 1990 and 2000. Strong quarterly earnings from traditional brick-and-mortar retailers provided an additional boost for equities.

    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...

    By Ryan Nauman 23 Jul 2018

    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...
