Market Week Wrap-up Weekly Market Update: Global Central Banks Still Got the Markets' Back
Fri, 22 May 2015 16:08 PM EST

Assured by an apparent stabilization in global interest rates, market participants sent global equities higher this week on central bank largess and any scrap of perceived good news to hit the tape. In Europe, indices saw a marked upturn despite the emerging sense that Greece was headed for default, while the Shanghai Composite notched seven-year highs on a 7% gain for the week. After emerging from recession in Q4, Japan's Q1 GDP report was even better, growing by its highest rate in a year on an annualized basis at +2.4%. China data remained soft, but the implicit promise of more PBoC support no matter what kept stocks boisterous. US May data was tepid, and the FOMC minutes gave a strong feeling that the Fed would not be raising rates before September. Fed Chair Yellen's Friday afternoon speech did little to alter that notion. There was mixed economic data in Europe, but comments by ECB's Coeure that the ECB would front-load its QE purchases because of the seasonal lack of liquidity in the summer helped gird markets. The US 10-year yield is held near its 200 day moving average just above 2.2% and the Greenback found some buyers. The DJIA and S&P500 saw fresh all-time highs before some very modest selling late in the week, while the Nasdaq approached recent all-time highs. For the week, the DJIA ended down 0.2%, the S&P500 gained 0.2% and the Nasdaq rose 0.8%.

Weak May US economic data points further contributed to the feeling that the Fed would have a very hard time raising rates any time soon. The headline Markit May manufacturing PMI reading was softer for a second consecutive month, dropping to its lowest level since January 2014. Overseas markets continue to be a source of trouble: exports have fallen for two months and manufacturers warned the strong dollar was a big drag on their competitiveness in external markets. Meanwhile the May Philly Fed outlook dropped to 6.7 from 7.5 in April (which had been a four-month high). The NAHB survey of homebuilder confidence slipped lower in May, dropping to 54 from 56 in April, and missed expectations. Following the data, it was hard not to read deeply into this line from the FOMC minutes: "Many participants thought it unlikely that the data available in June would provide sufficient confirmation that the conditions for raising the target range had been satisfied." Yellen followed the minutes up by reiterating monetary policy would remain data dependent, and emphasized that though the economy continues to progress down the path towards rate normalization this year, the threshold for inflation/wages has not been met yet.

April US housing data reflects the choppy, fits-and-starts nature of the recovery so far. Housing starts rose in April to their highest level since November of 2007. Starts jumped more than 20% sequentially to 1.135 million, for the biggest m/m gain in 25 years. Starts for single-family homes hit their highest level since January 2008. April existing home sales declined slightly from March's very strong showing, due to a lack of supply more than anything else.

Another week and another summit has passed without a deal between Greece and its European creditors. Stale rhetoric was heard from both sides about "progress being made" and "concessions being discussed." Greece warned it needed a deal by June in order to make a series of large payments. More tellingly, there were reports that the IMF was not interested in being a party to the Greece situation after June, while late in the week German Finance Minister Wlfgang Schaeuble would not rule out Greek default as a possible outcome and mentioned (at a private event) that Greece may need a parallel currency alongside the euro if the country's talks with creditors fail. The Euro fell below the support level of 1.1060 in Fridays session. The Coeure comments on QE helped spark a general resurgence in the Greenback early on, while consternation surrounding Greece and Friday's hotter than expected core US CPI weighed on the Euro further.

Airline stocks stalled in a big way this week as the downsides of lower fuel prices emerged. Southwest hiked its capacity growth rate for 2015 to +8% from +7%, citing higher profitability due in part to cheap fuel lowering costs. After years of keeping capacity on a short leash, investors saw the move as the beginning of a competitive scramble by the airlines, and shares of the US majors were down ~12% a piece on the week, and below 200-day moving averages. The correction in airlines stocks helped push the Dow Jones Transports to new multi-month lows. Some analysts warned about the negative implications of the move, while others argued falling oil prices trumped "Dow Theory" in this case.

Whether quarterly results were good or bad, shares of big chain retailers lost ground this week. Walmart lost 4% on the week after the firm missed revenue expectations in its first-quarter report. Best Buy saw momentary gains after EPS topped expectations, but revenue and earnings were down considerably on a y/y basis (thanks to the firm winding down its Canada operations). The home improvement names had contrasting first-quarter results - Home Depot beat expectations across the board, Loews did the opposite - but shares of both lost ground on the week. Apparel names TJX and American Eagle racked up good gains on solid quarterly results, including very good comp growth. The Gap gapped lower as comps remained negative.

Six global banks - Bank of America, Citicorp, JPMorgan, Barclays, UBS and Royal Bank of Scotland - agreed to pay $5.8 billion and five of them agreed to plead guilty to charges tied to a FX market rigging investigation. UBS was granted immunity for its cooperation in the investigation. Separately, the Federal Reserve imposed fines of more than $1.6 billion on the five banks for "unsafe and unsound practices."

On the M&A front, CVS Health reached a deal to acquire pharmacy services provider Omnicare for about $12.7 billion, or $98 per share in cash plus $2.3 billion of Omnicare's debt. Omnicare is the largest provider of pharmaceutical services in nursing homes in the US. Time Warner Cable was back in the headlines as French cable giant Altice was reported to be holding talks to acquire the company. Altice's CEO later said at a conference that there were interesting opportunities for consolidation in the US, expect to be "right in the middle" of US cable consolidation. On Friday popped again after CNBC's confirmed talks between MSFT and CRM progressed recently but the two companies' CEOs were unable to agree on price.

Shanghai Composite marched to a fresh 7-year high above 4,650, ending the week on a high note with an over 8% gain. The early look at May performance has done little to deter the PBoC from maintaining its increasingly more proactive easing path, as HSBC preliminary manufacturing PMI remained in contraction for the 3rd straight month. 49.1 print was below 49.3 expected, and the closely-watched component of new export orders also switched to contraction from expansion. In turn, the equity rally continues to be infused with explosion in retail trading activity, as the latest data showed China total margin debt hit a fresh record high of CNY2.01T, up nearly 5% in just a week.

Nikkei225 was also up moderately, racking up a 2.7% to finish above 20,250 after testing its own multi-year high above 20,300. Q1 GDP expanded for the 2nd consecutive quarter, this time at a more impressive pace of 2.4% on the year - a year high. The most impressive gains were made in the residential investment component, while private consumption continued its steady rise. As speculated after the release of the GDP data, the Bank of Japan took note of both of these trends in its latest monetary policy statement and raised the assessment of housing and consumption. Although the BOJ saw no progress on inflation with expectation of flat prices remaining, the improvement in other areas also allowed policymakers to lift their overall assessment for the first time in nearly 2 years.

Decent morning after which we took long weekend early. Two nice longs on IWM for 1:4 and FB for 1:2 at the end helped nicely.

01[10:38] {@Threei}  can't tell
01[10:39] {@Threei}  chart looks good by itself,
01[10:39] {@Threei}  but I am not delighted by it in context of general market
[10:39] {drewj} ok
01[10:39] {@Threei}  SPY is at day's high,
01[10:39] {@Threei}  CAT is barely raisning from the low
[10:39] {drewj} So it's weak
[10:54] {drewj} Vad when would you look for a reversal then?
[10:54] {drewj} In context of the whole market
01[10:55] {@Threei}  when setup presents itself
01[10:55] {@Threei}  so far nothing happens
[10:56] {drewj} right but how does the setup relate to the context of the market?
01[10:56] {@Threei}  for instance:
01[10:57] {@Threei}  CAT stays near low while market goes up, market pulls back, CAT breaks the low - here is my short setup
[10:57] {drewj} So weak stock on market weakeness
[10:57] {drewj} strong stock on market strength
01[10:57] {@Threei}  yup
[10:58] {drewj} simple
[10:58] {drewj} yet......hard to see
[10:58] {drewj} so that's why you stay away from stand alone setups
01[10:59] {@Threei}  well, not entirely, sometimes they can be of use,
01[10:59] {@Threei}  but for the most part, yes, market provides support
01[11:00] {@Threei}  and guidance
[11:00] {drewj} those tend to need extra momentum right?
[11:00] {drewj} that's how dino does his thing
01[11:00] {@Threei}  I'd say, different source of momentum
[11:00] {drewj} like news
01[11:00] {@Threei}  news for instance

01[10:44] {@Threei}  Warren Buffet's favorite US housing market indicator, housing starts, rose in April to its highest level since November of 2007. Starts jumped more than 20% sequentially to 1.135 million, for the biggest m/m gain in 25 years. Starts for single-family homes hit their highest level since January 2008.
01[10:45] {@Threei}  Shares of retail titan Walmart are down nearly 4% after the firm missed revenue expectations in its first-quarter report. EPS was in-line, while comps were pretty soft and the firm's guidance for second quarter was subpar. Home Depot beat expectations and raised its FY forecast, however moderate gains in the stock are all but evaporated mid morning.

Market Week Wrap-up  Weekly Market Update: Turbulent Markets Draw More Stimulus, May Delay Fed Liftoff
Fri, 15 May 2015 17:03 PM EST

Equities wove in and out of negative territory this week and bond markets were choppy, even as the DJIA and S&P500 quietly tested all-time highs. China started the week off with more stimulus - the PBoC cut rates for the third time since November. The US April retail sales and industrial production reports were quite soft, lending ammunition to participants saying the Fed would not be raising rates this summer. ECB President Draghi dismissed criticisms of his €1.1 trillion QE program on Thursday, reiterating that the ECB would buy the full allotment under the program and insisting that the plan would help prepare the Eurozone for higher rates. Greece made minor concessions to its partners on asset sales, but little movement is apparent in negotiations. For the week, the DJIA edged up 0.4%, the S&P500 added 0.3% and the Nasdaq rose 0.9%.

There were two April US economic reports with disappointing numbers but positive revisions to the March data: advance retail sales and industrial production. Retails sales were pretty weak, with total sales and the control group (which feeds into the GDP reading) unchanged, widely missing expectations. Meanwhile, the March headline sales figure was revised from 0.9% to 1.1% and the control was revised from 0.3% to 0.5%. Sales in April were curbed by declines in big-ticket receipts such as autos, furniture, electronics and appliances. The Atlanta Fed lowered its GDPnow rolling Q2 GDP forecast to 0.7% from 0.8% in the wake of the retail sales data. Likewise, industrial production was lower than expected, but the March report was raised to -0.3% from -0.6%. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment index on Friday also disappointed, registering its lowest reading since October and showed inflation expectations are rising.

The doves were out for the Fed this week with Dudley and Williams reiterating data dependence and cautioning again that global markets are sure to have some reaction when Fed rate lift off occurs. Williams also said he agrees with the sentiment expressed by Chair Yellen that equity valuations are quite high.

Negotiations between Greece and its European creditors went nowhere again this week. On Tuesday, Greece made its latest debt payment to the IMF on time, however Athens used €650M in funds from its own IMF account to help meet the €750M obligation, underlining the depth of the nation's cash crunch. First quarter GDP data revealed that the economy has already returned to recession. Finance Minister Varoufakis stepped up his war of words with Eurozone policymakers, saying he wished his country still had the drachma and warning he would not sign any bailout plan that would send his country into a "death spiral."

A return to GDP growth in France and Italy in Q1 helped boost eurozone economic growth in Q1 to +0.4% over the prior quarter and +1.0% on an annualized basis, its best rate in years. As of Q1, all the major eurozone economies are growing, cementing hopes for a real economic recovery. The caveat was Germany, where Q1 GDP was only +0.3% q/q, missing expectations for +0.7% growth. In the UK, the Bank of England cut its 2015 growth forecast from 2.9% to 2.5%, and 2016 from 2.9% to 2.6%, citing higher interest rates, stronger GBP and weaker productivity. EUR/USD took another leg up on the better data, rising from lows of 1.1140 to test three-month highs around 1.1450 on both Thursday and Friday. Traders note that after trading down five big figures from 1.1000 to 1.0500 in the first two months of the year, EUR/USD is making measured moves upward to test five big figures up from 1.000.

The bond selloff claimed victims in Asia this week, as a Japanese 10-year bond auction drew bids for 2.24x, the lowest in six years. Yields on German and US paper spiked again in the first half of the week, but appeared to reverse after testing some key technical levels. The 10-year UST touched 2.370% on Tuesday, its highest level since last November, but had dropped more than 20 basis points to trade around 2.15% on Friday. The 10-year bund peaked at 0.735% on Wednesday, but had dropped over ten basis points to 0.62% by Friday. Analysts continue to argue over the causes, with many citing poor liquidity and the stampede out of long positions as the best candidate for the moves in yields.

Shares of major US retailers lost ground this week after the April retail sales report and some mixed-to-poor quarterly reports. The biggest loser was Kohls, with shares off nearly 14% on the week after the firm missed revenue expectations, after reporting tepid comp growth and refraining from offering guidance. Fellow department store name Macys lost ground after missing both top- and bottom-line expectations and seeing comps go negative.

Cisco reported a modest y/y gain in revenue in its third quarter, with both earnings and revenues just a hair above expectations. The firm's fourth-quarter guidance was right in line. In his last quarterly conference call as CEO, John Chambers addressed emerging technologies head on, claiming that Cisco was slimming teams and speeding up development to compete with software-defined networking startups. Chambers also shot down rumors that Cisco was considering a takeover approach for security specialist FireEye.

By a narrow margin, DuPont investors rejected Nelson Peltz's attempt to get on the board at the annual meeting, the first failure for an activist campaign mounted by Trian Fund Management. The outcome was a victory for DuPont Chairman and CEO Kullman, who refused to settle the proxy fight by giving a board seat to Peltz. Trian had splitting DuPont into two companies.

China continues to ramp up its stimulus. Over the weekend, the PBoC cut key rates for the second time this year. The easing - a 25bp cut in deposit and lending rates to 2.25% and 5.10%, respectively - was expected after the downbeat trade numbers last week. The cut was further justified by April industrial production data missing expectations by a tenth of a percent, and retail sales also disappointing and touching a multi-year low (at +10%). Money supply and credit figures were similarly worrisome, as M2 slowed to a record low of 10.1% and new loans missed expectations by over CNY100B at just over CNY700B, a 4-month low. Expectations for steady easing helped the Shanghai Composite to another 2.4% rise for the week, despite the profit-taking on Friday attributed to strong demand for a new batch of IPOs.

[15:31] {nemo} equally
01[15:32] {@Threei}  why
01[15:32] {@Threei}  they are not equal
[15:32] {nemo} adverb
[15:32] {nemo} modifies created
[15:32] {nemo} Boston Marathon bomber sentenced to death
01[15:32] {@Threei}  nope... I am modifying noon
01[15:33] {@Threei}  good
01[15:33] {@Threei}  as in, they are not equal
01[15:33] {@Threei}  noun
[15:34] {nemo} incorrect, you modified how they were created, which is an action, requiring an adverb
[15:34] {nemo} equal=adjective   equally=adverb
01[15:34] {@Threei}  your language is weird
[15:34] {nemo} tree rock fire, dude
01[15:35] {@Threei}  they were created, they came to be of a certain quality - I am trying to say that this quality differs
01[15:35] {@Threei}  not necessarily the process of creation
[15:35] {nemo} so what quality are you modifying?
01[15:36] {@Threei}  thus I am modifying "kabobs," not "created":
01[15:36] {@Threei}  taste
01[15:36] {@Threei}  texture
01[15:36] {@Threei}  chewiness
01[15:36] {@Threei}  whatever
[15:37] {nemo} you wanted to modify kabobs but that's not what your sentence structure did
[15:37] {nemo} trust me...I have a little bit of experience with the English language
01[15:39] {@Threei}
01[15:39] {@Threei}  Using the adverb equally places the emphasis on the act of making; using the adjective equal places the emphasis on the quality of the thing that has been created.
01[15:39] {@Threei}  there :)
01[15:41] {@Threei}  or:
01[15:41] {@Threei}  Equally, as an adverb, modifies "created" - all men are created in the same manner. This is not the message that Jefferson wanted to leave us. Equal, as an adjective, modifies "men". So, from the time they are created, all men are the same.
01[15:54] {@Threei}  scratching VXX
01[15:54] {@Threei}  have a good weekend guy, see you Monday
