Investment Week (May 18)

2020/ 05/ 18 by jd in Global News

“Credit fundamentals have worsened since the market sell-off began, although central banks could provide some companies with a soft landing and many firms have drawn on their credit lines in a bid to stay afloat.” Even though “the impact is highly correlated across geographies, industries and asset classes…the potential outcomes are too severe to only affect equities and credit-market fundamentals have undoubtedly been impacted.”

 

Barron’s (July 8)

“Worried that the stock market has gotten ahead of itself? You’re not the only one. Morgan Stanley strategist Andrew Sheets doesn’t see much upside in stocks these days, resulting in his decision to cut the firm’s allocation on global equities to underweight from equal-weight.”

 

Financial Times (June 3)

“There’s the potential for a big week for Japanese equities ahead if the gloom that hung over them in May persists into the first week of June.” President Trump’s trip to Japan lacked “clear reassurances for Japan on trade,” to say nothing of “clarity on how bad things could turn between the US and China.” Since Japanese stocks “are liquid and easily accessible,” they are “among the first to be sold when global funds become nervous and, as such, they fell heavily least week.”

 

Institutional Investor (January 7)

“Institutional investors representing more than $7 trillion plan to pull money from public equities amid concerns the bull market is ending, according to a client survey released Monday by BlackRock.”

 

The Economist (August 25)

2018/ 08/ 27 by jd in Global News

“America’s bull market in equities turned 3,453 days old” on August 22. “Since hitting a low of 666 in March 2009, the S&P 500 index has increased more than fourfold, driven by strong corporate profits, low inflation, stable economic growth and a boatload of central-bank stimulus. Despite five corrections of at least 10%, the index has never entered bear territory, defined as a drop of at least 20%. Most commentators are declaring this to be the longest bull market in history.”

 

South China Morning Post (August 3)

2018/ 08/ 05 by jd in Global News

“China has just ceded its four-year title as the world’s second-largest stock market to Japan, as an intensifying trade spat with the US and its campaign to reduce leverage weighed on equities.”

 

 

Fund Strategy (June 1)

2017/ 06/ 03 by jd in Global News

“European sceptics are being forced to acknowledge the recovery in a region that they have failed to understand politically, as the eurozone enjoys positive PMIs and employment figures while rejecting populist politics…. April saw the fifth largest allocation shift from US to European equities since the start of the eurozone in 1999.”

 

Bloomberg (April 4)

“Now could be the time for foreign investors to return to Japanese equities, according to Goldman Sachs. Corporate governance reforms, a recovery in domestic demand and the strong performance of local stocks in U.S. dollar terms are all potential catalysts that may lure foreigners back.”

 

Institutional Investor (July 18)

2016/ 07/ 19 by jd in Global News

Following a tumultuous weekend with a failed coup, another police officer shooting in the U.S., and continuing Brexit worries, investors may want to consider “whether security and geopolitical threats to stability will undermine the impact of aggressive easing actions of the world’s central banks. A recovery in the Turkish lira and global equity indices and a retreat in gold prices, seemingly fueled by the coup’s failure, suggests that at least some parts of the market believe central bank policymakers still trump security threats when it comes to financial asset valuation.”

 

Bloomberg (May 31)

2016/ 06/ 01 by jd in Global News

“Chinese equities are once again in the cross hairs of short sellers…. The last time bearish bets were so elevated, such pessimism proved well-founded as China’s bull market turned into a $5 trillion rout.”
