The S&P 500 500 suffered the biggest one-day percentage drop since May 12 and the Nasdaq Composite closes with biggest one-day percentage drop since March 18 as all three major U.S. stock indexes slid nearly 2% or more, with interest rate sensitive tech and tech-adjacent stocks weighing heaviest as investors lost their risk appetite.

In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 148 points to 27,789, the Shanghai Index inched higher about 6 points to 3,538 and the Hang Seng Index rose 131 points to 25,539.

For the week, the S&P 500 rose 1.5%, the Dow rose about 1% and the Nasdaq rose 2.8% and the Russell 2000 index jumped 5.1%. Major averages enjoyed gains all week as Fed Chairman Jerome Powell kept rate hikes far over the horizon at the virtual Jackson Hole speech.

Energy, Industrials and Materials More than 90% of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico shut down this weekend as Hurricane Ida plowed toward the Louisiana coast, threatening an area that is home to 17% of U.S. oil production, 5% of natural gas output and 15% of U.S. refining capacity. Exxon Mobil ($XOM) reportedly has cut production at its Baton Rouge refinery to 50% of its 520K bbl/day capacity Berry Global ($BERY) a positive mention in Barron’s saying the company makes plastic containers, but writing off Berry for plastics overlooks changing practices in the industry and ignores one of the sturdiest of materials stocks. Berry could narrow the gap between its 10 times 12-month forward earnings and Sealed Air’s ($SEE) and Amcor’s ($AMCR) 15 times, which would imply a 50% gain on multiple expansion alone, the author notes Astra Space Inc ($ASTR) shares fall over -20% after the test launch of its rocket LV0006 was ended prematurely about 2-and-a-half minutes after liftoff; said one of LV0006’s engines shut down less than a second after liftoff United Airlines Holdings Inc.

Barron’s noted China’s most well-known companies are starting to look cheap to some U.S. investors, though the likelihood of volatility means there will be ample opportunity to buy. Alibaba ($BABA), Tencent ($TCEHY) and Yum China ($YUMC) are among the ones to watch HP Inc. ($HPQ) and Dell ($DELL) look attractive and cheap, according to Barron’s. One peculiar outcome of the pandemic has been a newfound appreciation for the personal computer, with the pandemic underlining the need to upgrade to hardware capable of running videoconferencing and other essential software Globalstar ($GSAT) shares may move on a report that Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 13 will use satellite connectivity so users can make calls and texts in areas without cellular coverage https://bit.ly/3sXY2mN

Friday, August 27, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 84.00 0.24% 35,244 S&P 500 13.25 0.30% 4,479 Nasdaq 54.50 0.35% 15,328 U.S. futures are pointing to a rebound for U.S. stocks as markets prepare for a speech from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that could provide with clues about the central bank’s timeline for pulling back on stimulus. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury dipped Friday to 1.345% as investors awaited Powell’s speech at the Jackson Hole symposium, while U.S. stocks bounce after yesterday’s decline. Wall Street closed lower on Thursday, ending a streak of all-time closing highs on concerns over developments in Afghanistan, while fears of a potential shift in U.S. Federal Reserve policy prompted a broad but shallow sell-off. All three major U.S. stock indexes ended the session in the red, with the S&P and the Nasdaq notching their first down day in six. The sell-off firmed after hawkish commentary Dallas President Robert Kaplan who said he believes the economic recovery warrants tapering to commence in October, St. Louis’s James Bullard called for a start in the fall, while Kansas City’s Esther George said a move should be made sometime this year (none are policy voters in 2021). Meanwhile, the economy grew at a slightly faster pace than originally reported in the second quarter, fully recovering its losses from the most abrupt downturn in U.S. history, according to the Commerce Department. But jobless claims, though still on a downward trajectory, ticked higher last week. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -101 points to 27,641, the Shanghai Index rose 20 points to 3,522, and the Hang Seng Index was down slightly at 25,407. In Europe, the German DAX is little changed at 15,790, while the FTSE 100 is also little changed at 7,125.

Thursday, August 26, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 8.00 0.02% 35,368 S&P 500 -4.25 0.09% 4,489 Nasdaq -30.50 0.20% 15,334 Another day, and another record high for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite on Wednesday, but overnight futures paint a mixed picture amid a retreat in technology shares and caution ahead of a Federal Reserve gathering that may provide more clues about its approach to paring stimulus. With few negative catalysts to dampen the risk-on sentiment, all three major U.S. indexes crept modestly higher on Tuesday. The S&P 500 was able to notch its 51st record close of the year and the Nasdaq its 30th record closing highs for 2021. With the gains, the SPX and Nasdaq have now both risen 5-straight days (the Dow is on a 4-day win streak) – but volume on U.S. exchanges was just 8.29 billion shares, making it one of the slowest trading days of the year. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 17 points to 27,742, the Shanghai Index fell -38 points to hold just above the 3,500 level and the Hang Seng Index fell -278 points to 25,415. In Europe, the German DAX is down over -100 points to 15,755, while the FTSE 100 fell about -30 points to 7,120. On the calendar today, U.S. Q2 GDP is expected to be revised up to a 6.7% clip versus the disappointing 6.5% pace from the Advance report and weekly jobless claims are expected to be 350K, but focus still remains on tomorrow’s Jackson Hole speech from Fed Chair Powell for clues on the timing of a tapering of monetary stimulus. U.S. Treasury yields rose overnight, with that on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note hitting 1.359% for the first time since Aug. 13. There were a handful of earnings results in the software space moving tech as well with ADSK, SNOW,CRM, SPLK, ESTC all out with results, while in retail, WSM rises on its results.

/*============================================= = MORNING UPDATE - Thursday 05/27/21 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -9.00 0.03% 34,271 S&P 500 -8.25 0.20% 4,184 Nasdaq -54.50 0.40% 13,646 Stock futures are edging slightly lower ahead of a busy morning of economic data, as investors await monthly GDP (2nd estimate for Q1 with estimate about 6.4% – in-line with prior reading), jobless claims data, durable goods and pending home sales. The narrative remains the same day after day as the U.S. economy continues to show improvement/rebound from pandemic lows, which has raised concerns over rising inflation and fears the Fed could pull back on its asset purchases/monetary policy – but most official have said over the last week they don’t feel it will be necessary to change course since rising price pressures likely will just be transitory. Market fears remain non-existent again as the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) comes into the day below the 18 level (was above 27 just over a week ago). In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -93 points to 28,549, the Shanghai Index rose 15 points to 3,608 and the Hang Seng Index fell -52 points to 29,113. In Europe, the German DAX is down over 40 points to 15,400, while the FTSE 100 is down a few points to 7,015. Stocks edged higher on Wednesday, with the SmallCap Russell 2000 index leading (up nearly 2%), and the tech heavy Nasdaq Composite, as markets were once again spurred by further reassuring talk from Federal Reserve officials that spiking inflation will be “transitory” with Treasury yields remaining lower. Fed Vice Chair Randal Quarles was the latest Fed official to ease worries about inflation. Outside of SmallCap and tech, momentum related sectors fueled the rally with social media “meme” stocks surging ($GME, $AMC, $EXPR, $KOSS), along with electric vehicle names and Bitcoin leveraged stocks.
