“Pandemic stocks have become passé: Peloton, Zoom and others” are making way “for the shares of ‘reopening’ companies.” The shift in market sentiment “reflects a broader reshuffling of the economy, as Americans return to gyms, concerts and other in-person activities.”

““China’s gravy train will bypass Wall Street,” where the “easiest money from selling Chinese shares in New York is destined to fade.” Given renewed protectionism, global investment banks will also find it more challenging “to use their international networks to help companies find acquisition targets abroad…. It will be a harder slog for less money as the China gravy train makes fewer stops on Wall Street.”

“Publicly listed family-owned firms, defined as those where the founder of their family owns 20% of shares or votes, returned 3 percentage points more than non-family owned stocks during the virus-struck first half of 2020.” It might be a coincidence, “but the same thing happened after the last crisis…. The effect persists across sectors, regions and company size,” perhaps because the firms have less debt and invest more in R&D.

“Chicago-based Boeing said Monday that it will suspend production of the Max starting sometime in January.” The 737 Max is the largest U.S. export product. “Shares of major manufacturers that supply Chicago-based Boeing with critical elements of the 737 Max fell Tuesday” and the “ramifications are likely to ripple beyond the factory floor and across both the aviation and manufacturing sectors. The decision could affect the country’s trade balance.”

Global investors have “sold $4.5 billion of Indian shares since June, on course for the biggest quarterly exodus since at least 1999.” That’s roughly a tenth of their total investment during the previous six years. “India’s economic growth has decelerated for five straight quarters.” India could now experience “a structural slowdown that pummels the country’s $2 trillion stock market, throws a wrench into growth plans of international companies from Inc. to Netflix Inc.,” and diminishes job prospects “for the millions of young Indians who enter the workforce every year.”

“The looming prospect of no-deal Brexit is already spooking markets. Sterling tanked today, and the cost of CDS protection on U.K. government debt rose. Shares in Britain’s state-owned bank RBS fell by 9%.”


Market Watch (July 31)

“Both Facebook and Netflix saw their shares fall into bear-market territory on Monday, defined by a decline of at least 20% from a recent peak, and nearly 40% of the S&P 500’s technology sector is in correction territory.” Some say there’s been a seismic shift, but “it remains to be seen if the recent moves represent a sea change for a reemergence for value, which has been overshadowed by growth plays, or if moves of the past few days are a blip.”

“A gauge tracking Shanghai shares has taken quite a beating in the past six days, closing Wednesday at its lowest level since October 2016. While the bearish sentiment hardly bodes well for China’s big debut, it does mean foreigners are getting in at the cheapest valuations in more than two years.”

“Tokyo bulls can’t buy a break. Just as the economy shows signs of life, they’re ensnared in a global equity meltdown that on Friday alone lopped $200 billion from the price of shares.” The threat of a trade war, a sell off by foreign investors and the surging yen are “all starting to dent sentiment for Japan, where bears had previously been hard to find.”


Wall Street Journal (November 8)

“The world’s most valuable public company just made more history.” Shares in Apple “rose 0.8% Wednesday to close at a new all-time high of $176.24, giving the iPhone maker a market value of $904.9 billion.” The advance makes Apple “the first U.S. company to reach the $900 billion threshold, having already become the first to hit $800 billion.”
