    By Ryan Nauman 10 Dec 2018

    During their meeting, Trump and Xi agreed to a trade truce and put a 90-day cease fire on the trade war. Markets opened higher Monday on the news. White House economic advisor, Larry Kudlow said that trade negations will happen quickly and result in a positive outcome within the 90 days. Questions remain, as conflicting statements from the White House regarding the start date of the 90-day truce added to the uncertainty. With time to digest the news, the Monday’s gains were quickly wiped away as the week moved alon. Read more from Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap and subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox each week!

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 12.03.18

    By Ryan Nauman 04 Dec 2018

    All eyes will be on the much anticipated high-stakes meeting between U.S. President Trump and China President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit this weekend. Optimism is growing for a deal to be hatched, which I find unlikely. There are too many moving parts to conjure up a grand deal over a dinner date. Instead, I look for a constructive meeting that gives Trump enough motivation to delay/remove the upcoming increase in existing 10% tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods to 25%, while the two sides negotiate a trade pact. I think both sides are looking for some momentum – President Trump recently lost control of the House of Representatives and is looking for a “win”, while the Chinese economy is struggling and in need of a boost – which will lead to softened tones and a more constructive discussion.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 11.26.18

    By Ryan Nauman 26 Nov 2018

    Homebuilder confidence, measured by the National Association of Home Builders’ monthly confidence index, fell eight points to a reading of 60 in November. The 60 reading is the lowest since 2016 and missed forecasts of a flat reading. Effecting confidence was the increasing material costs, tight labor market, rising mortgage rates, and the shrinking supply of lots. Housing starts increased to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.228 million in October, which was a 1.5% increase according to the Commerce Department. The reading was a 2.9% decline from a year earlier. Permits decreased 0.6% from September and was 6% lower than the year prior. Additionally, housing affordability continues to drop due to increasing mortgage rates and home prices.

    By Ryan Nauman 19 Nov 2018

    The Q3 earnings growth is on pace to be the largest growth since 2010. Despite the stellar earnings growth, markets have been volatile with sharp intra-day moves since the beginning of October. Investors have looked past the stellar earnings while focusing more on headline risks and securing profits rather than capitalizing on the solid earnings and falling valuations. There are notable risks at play - slowing global growth, trade concerns, and rising interest rates – which will continue for the time being. These risks have caused investors to take a defensive stance and until the risks subside, namely trade concerns, while we experienced heightened volatility. A resolution to trade will provide a much-needed boost to equities and help ease some global growth concerns.

    Unless you have been living under a rock, you know midterm elections will take place Tuesday. I am very far from a political commentator, but I feel it is definitely worth discussing. There is a lot at stake here, will the GOP be able to retain control over both chambers of Congress, or will Democrats be able to wrestle away control of the House or the Senate or both? Below I take a look at some of the market implications. Read more from Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap and subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox each week!

    By Ryan Nauman 29 Oct 2018

    Typically, investors follow corporate earnings and look for solid growth. However, that hasn’t been the case during the current earnings season. As of Friday the 26th, 48% of the S&P 500 companies have reported third quarter earnings. Currently, year-over-year earnings growth is on pace to eclipse 20%, which would beat analyst’s expectations of 19% growth. Energy, Financials, Communication Services, Materials, Information Technology, Industrials, and Consumer Discretionary sectors have all posted year-over-year revenue growth north of 15%. Additionally, 77% of the reporting companies have posted a positive EPS surprise, while 59% have posted a positive sales surprise. The positive EPS surprise of 77% is above the five year average of 71%, while in aggregate, earnings have beat expectations by 6.5%, which beats the five year average of 4.6%. At the current pace, the third quarter year-over-year earnings growth will be the third highest since Q3 2010. Solid numbers, right?

    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!

    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.

    European Money Fund Reform: Where Things Stand Currently

    26 Sep 2018

    Memories of the 2007-2008 global financial crisis - now a decade behind us - remain all too fresh, as regulators and political leaders continue to debate causes of that crisis and to advance the most effective strategies for preventing a future one. Whether significant and sudden redemptions from money-market mutual funds - in Europe and in the U.S. - were a fundamental cause of the crisis or an unfortunate consequence of it continues to be debated by some regulators, academics, and market participants. However, the presumption in the immediate aftermath of the crisis, as the G20 group of nations agreed in 2008, was that the absence of discipline in short-term credit markets generally, and among money-market funds specifically, needed to be addressed. Therefore they advocated sweeping financial reforms on market instruments and processes, including on money-market funds. Read more...

    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.

    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.
