    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 09.17.18

    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.

    By Ray Montague and Sue Hines 29 Aug 2018

    Financial institution executives are preparing now, arming themselves with practical strategies to help succeed in a rising rate environment. After a long, slow thaw, the financial industry is finally entering the rising interest rate environment that has been expected for a while. After such a long period, many executives find themselves ill-prepared for what is to come and some are speculating about how consumer behavior will differ from past rising rate environments.

    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.

    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.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 07.30.18

    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...
