Monday, October 18, 2021 U.S. equity futures are looking lower after posting strong gains last week, with oil prices extending their near-term rally into a ninth consecutive week, as concerns over surging inflation pressures and the weakest China growth rate in more than a year tamed optimism linked to a strong start to the third quarter earnings season.

Strong quarterly earnings from Dow component Goldman Sachs (GS) also boosted financials as investors prepare for a flood of reports next week.

Oil prices and Treasury yields decline, while gold rises ahead of a key reading of consumer price September inflation. Futures are getting a boost after better economic data in China as September exports rose 28.1% from last year as consumer demand outpace supply chain disruptions and power shortages, while last night’s passage of a debt ceiling extension by House lawmakers puts at least one market concern to the side until early December. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -90 points to 28,140, the Shanghai Index rose 14 points to 3,561 and the Hang Seng Index was closed. In Europe, the German DAX is up over 100 points to 15,250, while the FTSE 100 is slightly lower at 7,120. U.S. stocks ended lower following a choppy session on Tuesday, with investors nervous about upcoming third-quarter earnings reports. In addition to the CPI data, the Federal Reserve will release minutes from its last policy meeting, and investors are looking for further clues on when the central bank could begin tapering its bond-buying program.

If the two sides can’t agree on the bill that Democrats recently attached to the federal debt ceiling limit, the country could see a partial gov’t shutdown by Friday. Politico reported that Democrats are hinting they could be willing to drop the debt ceiling from their government funding package this week in order to avoid a government shutdown. The 10-year Treasury yield is up more than 4 basis points to 1.53% after topping 1.55% earlier while the 5-year is setting new records for the year and is up 2 bps to 1.02%.

The move higher is coming as concerns about inflation rise, especially in commodities as oil is up again, with WTI futures above $76 per barrel and Brent futures topping $80.

Brent crude gains 2.1% to $78.81, sending the energy sector soaring and WTI crude topped $75 per barrel, also best levels in about 3-years. Durable goods orders posted their biggest increase since May, rising 1.8% for August and handily beating economists. Notably, small-capitalization stocks advanced sharply on the session, aided by a gain in energy shares which themselves were helped by a rally in crude-oil prices. U.S. natural gas futures soared 11% to a seven-year high as record global gas prices kept demand for U.S. liquefied natural gas ($LNG) exports strong. On its second to last day as the front-month, gas futures for October delivery rose 56.6 cents, or 11.0%, to settle at $5.706 per million British thermal units (highest close since February 2014).

Thursday, September 23, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 162.00 0.47% 34,291 S&P 500 23.25 0.53% 4,407 Nasdaq 83.50 0.55% 15,247 U.S. stocks are looking at another move higher following strong gains on Wednesday despite the FOMC taking a more “hawkish” stance on both rates and the timeline on asset purchase tapering during yesterday’s meeting. Stocks jumped on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve cleared the way to ease monthly bond purchases “soon” and signaled interest rate increases may follow more quickly than expected. Stocks pared gains late as Fed Chair Jerome Powell spoke at his press conference but still closed up solidly. Fed officials indicated that they see interest rates seen rising to 1% in 2023, faster than projected by the Fed in its projections in June, and then to 1.8% in 2024. Nine of eleven major S&P 500 sectors ended the day higher. However, of note, all 11 groups retreated from the moments before Powell’s press conference began, into the close. The Dow Transport index slid to 6-month lows following weakness from Fed-Ex (FDX) earnings results and guidance the night prior. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index was closed, the Shanghai Index rose 13 points to 3,642 and the Hang Seng Index gained 289 points to 24,510. In Europe, the German DAX is up over 130 points (0.89%) to 15,645, while the FTSE 100 rises about 20-points to move above 7,100. Oil prices are slipping but still holds near two-month high with global stockpiles tightening.

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 220.00 0.65% 34,018 S&P 500 26.25 0.61% 4,369 Nasdaq 57.50 0.38% 15,081 Stocks looking to bounce, with U.S. futures sharply higher after last night as reports indicated that troubled Chinese property developer Evergrande’s main unit Hengda Real Estate Group co says will make coupon payment for onshore bond due Sept. 23rd. That buys Evergrande some time, although debt restructuring is still likely. Also, the House passed a bill Tuesday that would temporarily fund the government and suspend the debt limit. The legislation could fail in the Senate, as Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says Republicans will vote against raising the debt ceiling. The government would shut down on Oct. 1 and the U.S. would be unable to pay its bills sometime in October if Congress does not pass legislation addressing both issues. Bond markets unphased by the news with the 10-year stuck around 1.33%. Meanwhile, the FOMC began its 2-day meeting yesterday and announces its policy decision and releases its economic projections today at 14 2:00 PM ET and Chairman Powell follows with the press conference at 2:30 ET. In corporate news, shares of transportation giant Fed-Ex (FDX) slides over 5% after cutting its profit outlook on higher costs and stalled growth in shipments, while Adobe ($ADBE) slips after 3Q update disappointed the high expectations of investors. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index reopened, falling -200 points to 29,639, the Shanghai Index rises 14 points to 3,629 and the Hang Seng Index gains 122 points to 24,221. In Europe, the German DAX is up 110 points to 15,450, while the FTSE 100 rises over 80 points to 7,070. Bitcoin prices recover, above $42,000 after briefly dropping below $40K last night. Markets have been put on edge this week by trouble in the Chinese property market, especially the precarious situation of its largest builder of homes, Evergrande. The company is a massive issuer of debt both inside China and offshore to international investors.

Tuesday, August 17, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -221.00 0.62% 35,313 S&P 500 -21.25 0.49% 4,452 Nasdaq -59.50 0.39% 15,075 U.S. equity-index futures are looking lower this morning, while global stocks have fallen for a second day amid several market concerns. U.S. major averages hit record highs (S&P 500 and Dow record high closes for a 5th straight session) on Monday as investors moved into defensive sectors (Healthcare, Staples, Utilities) and stocks recovered from losses earlier in the session, shaking off glum economic data out of China and the U.S., but start the day on shaky ground yet again. Several factors playing into the morning decline including: 1) concerns that more lockdowns could be needed to contain the coronavirus pandemic; 2) Treasury yields fall ahead of an address by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on the health of the world’s largest economy; 3) Dow component Home Depot (HD) reports a top and bottom-line beat, but weaker-than-expected comp sales drag shares lower; 4) Federal Reserve Bank President Eric Rosengren said Monday he could be prepared to begin rolling back economic stimulus this fall. But he said he wouldn’t boost interest rates until the employment picture improves; 5) China markets tumble following another regulatory crackdown after China published detailed rules to tackle unfair competition and companies’ handling of critical data; the draft regulations ban unfair competition and restrict the use of user data. Investors were also digesting news from Afghanistan, where thousands of civilians desperate to flee the country thronged Kabul airport after the Taliban seized the capital. Asian stocks retreat for fourth day as the Hang Seng and Shanghai Composite lose ground after China issues draft rules targeting unfair online competition. The Kosdaq sinks 2.3% as Korean selloff resumes following Monday’s holiday. The Nikkei Index fell -98 points to 27,424, the Shanghai Index tumbled -70 points (or 2%) to 3,446 and the Hang Seng Index declined -435 points (1.66%) to 25,745. In Europe, the German DAX is down around -40 points to 15,885, while the FTSE 100 is up a few points to 7,165. Wal-Mart earnings expected later this morning as well.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury rose early Thursday to 1.287% after touching lows below 1.13% earlier this week. President Joe Biden, at a town hall in Cincinnati hosted by CNN, said Wednesday night “there will be near-term inflation” as the economy recovers but said he has been advised by his economic team that current price increases won’t last as demand returns to normal levels. Stocks advanced Wednesday as strong corporate earnings and renewed optimism about the U.S. economic recovery stoked investor risk appetite. All three major U.S. stock indexes appeared set to build on the previous session’s gains, which delivered the S&P 500’s best day since March, while the Russell 2000 SmallCap outperformed for a second day after trading in correction territory on Monday (defined as 10% down off record highs). With Wednesday’s advance, all three are within 1% of their all-time closing highs. Economically sensitive SmallCaps, semiconductors and financials outperformed the broader market as investors prep for another busy day of earnings. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 159 points to 27,548, the Shanghai Index gained 12 points to 3,574 and the Hang Seng Index jumped nearly 500 points (1.83%) to settle at 27,723.

A failure to work out differences over whether government spending cuts should accompany an increase in the statutory debt limit, currently set at $28.5 trillion, could lead to a federal government shutdown – as has happened three times in the past decade – or even a debt default.

Monday, July 12, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -182.00 0.52% 34,569 S&P 500 -12.25 0.29% 4,347 Nasdaq 34.50 0.23% 14,845 Stock futures looking mixed to start the week as the Nasdaq Comp is pointing higher while the Dow and S&P 500 look to open lower as investors turn their attention to second-quarter earnings season starting this week in order to gauge whether corporate profitability can support equity valuations. In corporate news, Virgin Galactic ($SPCE) announced that VSS Unity “successfully” reached space, completing the company’s fourth rocket-powered spaceflight, and sending shares higher. Items to watch during the week outside of earnings include the latest figures on inflation and growth. The June consumer price index will be published tomorrow, while the producer price reading will be announced on Wednesday. Also, Fed Chair Jerome Powell is also due to give his semiannual monetary policy report before the U.S. House and Senate on Wednesday and Thursday Stocks posted big gains on Friday, helping major averages close out the week in positive territory as the S&P 500 rose 0.36% the last 5-days, the Dow added 0.24%, and the Nasdaq gained 0.43% as top indices major averages cement their third-straight weekly gain. The big news last week was the precipitous drop in Treasury yields, dropping 8-straight days before having its streak snapped Friday, a day after the 10-year hit 5-month lows of 1.25%. All three indexes are heading toward closing highs, just a few days after notching the worst daily drop since June 18th mid-week. The declines had been at least partly inspired by worries about the economic recovery amid the spread of the delta variant of COVID-19.

/*============================================= = Thursday, June 17, 2021 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -110.00 0.32% 33,795 S&P 500 -16.25 0.39% 4,196 Nasdaq -87.50 0.63% 13,885 U.S. stock futures are lower, with major averages looking to open down between -0.3% and -0.6% after the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged on Wednesday but signaled it expected to boost interest rates two times by the end of 2023, earlier than Wall Street had anticipated. Treasury yields ended higher yesterday, as the 10-year holding around the 1.57% level (up roughly 8 bps prior to the Fed announcement). The number of Fed governors who expect rate hikes as early as 2022 – known as the dot plot – went to seven from four, essentially translating into two rate hikes in 2023 based on growth and inflation projections from the 18 members of the FOMC as the economy recovers rapidly from the effects of the pandemic and inflation heats up. Banking shares rally, however, as bond yields rise, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 1.55%. Chairman Jerome Powell also said officials discussed an eventual reduction of bond-buying, though the timing of such a move remains uncertain. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index dropped -272 points to 29,018, the Shanghai Index rose 7 points to 3,525, and the Hang Seng Index gained 121 points to settle at 28,558. In Europe, the German DAX is down around -20 points to 5,695, while the FTSE 100is down -30 points at 7,150.

/*============================================= = Monday, June 14, 2021 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 13.00 0.04% 34,370 S&P 500 4.50 0.11% 4,241 Nasdaq 45.75 0.33% 14,031 U.S. stocks futures are looking higher, as the S&P 500 looks to build on last week’s new all-time highs as investors and markets prepare for the Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting later this week. The S&P 500 posted its second consecutive record closing high on Friday with investors assessing the Federal Reserve’s stance that inflation spikes will prove to be transitory. For the week, the Dow fell 0.8%, the S&P 500 ticked up 0.4%, and the Nasdaq jumped 1.8%. Looking ahead this week, the big focus remains the Federal Reserve’s June policy decision and press conference Wednesday afternoon hoping to clarify the path forward for monetary policy as investors contemplate the staying power of higher inflation. Currently, the Federal Reserve is conducting these purchases at a rate of $120 billion per month, with this quantitative easing having served as a key tool the Fed used to provide support and liquidity to the economy during the pandemic. A number of key economic data releases are also scheduled for this week, including May retail sales. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury inched up to around 1.464% after hitting a three-month low last Thursday In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 213 points to 29,161, the Shanghai Index was closed the Hang Seng Index was also closed. In Europe, the German DAX rises over 35 points to 15,730, while the FTSE 100 gains 30 points to 7,170. Crypto assets are looking higher to start the week after Tesla (TSLA) tweeted about Bitcoin: This is inaccurate. Tesla only sold ~10% of holdings to confirm BTC could be liquidated easily without moving market. When there’s confirmation of reasonable (~50%) clean energy usage by miners with positive future trend, Tesla will resume allowing Bitcoin transactions. Oil prices are higher and gold prices are markedly lower.

With allied leaders also raising concerns about Russia’s recent military build-up near Ukraine, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg described the summit, the first Joe Biden will attend as U.S. president, as a “pivotal moment” – Reuters Sector News Breakdown Consumer Tesla Inc ($TSLA) CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday that the electric car marker will resume allowing bitcoin transactions when miners who verify transactions use more renewable energy. “When there’s confirmation of reasonable (~50%) clean energy usage by miners with positive future trend, Tesla will resume allowing Bitcoin transactions,” he said in a tweet. Energy, Industrials and Materials Royal Dutch Shell (RDS/A) is reviewing its holdings in the largest U.S. oil field for a potential sale, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The sale could be for part or all of Shell’s position in the U.S. Permian Basin, which accounted for around 6% of the Anglo-Dutch company’s total oil and gas output last year. The holdings could be worth more than $10 billion Petrobras ($PBR) says it plans to sell its remaining 37.5% stake in fuel distributor BR Distribuidora in a follow-on public offering Lumber futures posted their biggest-ever weekly loss, extending a tumble from all-time highs reached last month as sawmills ramp up output and buyers hold off on purchases. Prices fell 18% this week, and has now dropped almost 40% from the record high reached on May 10 Iran said it has reached a broad agreement with the U.S. over the lifting of sanctions on its industrial sectors, including energy, but warned there was “very little time left” for world powers to revive a 2015 nuclear deal Financials Equinix Inc ($EQIX) said it signed agreements for additional joint ventures with Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC to add $3.9 billion to expand a data center program. As per the terms, GIC will own an 80% equity interest in future joint ventures, and Equinix will hold the remaining 20% equity interest. Washington Prime Group ($WPG) announced that it and certain of its subsidiaries have filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code Healthcare Novavax ($NVAX) rises after reporting ate-stage trial data showing its COVID-19 vaccine candidate is more than 90% effective against a variety of variants of the virus as the study puts NVAX on track for filing for U.S. emergency authorization. Novavax on Friday said its vaccine candidate, NVX-CoV2373, showed immune response and protection against the highly contagious coronavirus variant originally identified in South Africa Crispr Therapeutics ($CRSP) upgraded to Neutral from Sell with a price target of $132 up from $55 at Citigroup Cano Health ($CANO) has acquired University Health Care and its affiliates for $600M, with $540M in cash and $60M in equity. Entasis Therapeutics ($ETTX) revealed in an SEC filing its biggest shareholder Innoviva Inc. ($INVA) acquired ~6.27 mln shares at an avg price of $2 per share for total amount of ~$12.54M Alzheimer industry talked about in Barron’s saying Eli Lilly’s ($LLY) donanemab is one contender with Biogen’s ($BIIB) recently approved drug this week. Gantenerumab, from Roche Holding ($RHHBY), is another. Biogen and Japan’s Eisai ($ESALY), have a third, known as BAN2401. The European Medicines Agency ($EMA) has detected a rare new side effect called capillary leak syndrome following the vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca ($AZN), known as Vaxzevria in the region. Technology, Media & Telecom Alphabet Inc’s ($GOOGL) has unveiled an option for small businesses to upgrade their Gmail accounts for greater calendaring, video chat and email newsletter functionalities. Google Workspace Individua starts at $7.99 monthly and includes a temporary $2 discount Qualcomm ($QCOM) said it would be willing to invest in ARM Holdings if Nvidia’s ($NVDA) planned $40B acquisition of the Softbank-owned chipmaker isn’t able to be completed due to antitrust concerns. Barron’s noted the shortage of semiconductors has given investors a new appreciation of their importance. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) sits at the nexus of the global chip renaissance. TSMC shares are down 15% since mid-February but investors should avoid the temptation to buy the dip — for now.

/*============================================= = Tuesday June 8, 2021 = =============================================*/ U.S. futures slip after several Internet websites went down this morning including New York Times, Reddit, Amazon.com Web Services (though many of them are starting to come back now). Futures dropped when it first appeared it was a potential cybersecurity breach but CNBC reported that Fastly ($FSLY) was down and maybe the reason for some of the outages, though still unclear at this point to what the direct driver is of the website outages. Fastly did say it is “investigating potential impact to performance with our CDN services,” on its service page. Prior to the Internet outages, U.S. futures weren’t doing very much, trading mixed to down slightly prior with Treasury yields lower (10-yr at 1.55%), along with a slide in oil prices and cryptocurrency (Bitcoin at 33K). U.S. equity futures were mixed, as inflation concerns continued to play on investors. Bitcoin fell, with some analysts suggesting the move may relate to the display of government control in the cryptocurrency space as the U.S recovered some of the Colonial Pipeline ransom. Stitch Fix and Marvell Technology gained following positive earnings results. Stocks finished mixed on Monday as the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials finished with modest losses while the tech heavy Nasdaq Composite and Russell 2000 outperformed, paced by gains in the biotech sector as Biogen’s ($BIIB) FDA approval for its Alzheimer’s drug boosted optimism about futures FDA decisions on other drugs. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -55 points to 28,963, the Shanghai Index fell -19 points to 3,580 and the Hang Seng Index slipped -5points to 28,781. In Europe, the German DAX is down over 30 points to 15,640, while the FTSE 100 is up a few points at 7,080.
