Trend update on consumer prices, cycles/seasonal, and new lows
|

Trend in consumer prices remains upward following a November 2020 "buy" signal and is now high enough to begin to bother the market. Cycle trends are more mature and turn down in May, but maybe more importantly top in early August. This could be true globally as well. New 52-week lows are still low and that usually means the tape is still healthy.

Retail sales and industrial production disappoint

Retail sales flat in April, following a stimulus-driven rush in the previous month. Consumer sentiment backtracks amid surging inflation expectations. Industrial production up less than expected, impacted by shortages. Businesses cannot restock fast enough to keep up with demand. Import price inflation on the rise.

Is the good news on the economy and from corporations priced in?
|

Global economic surprises still suggest economists have not fully adjusted to the boom underway. The output gap and the unemployment rate are greatly improved, but not yet to the point where our work indicates that good news is becoming bad news for stocks. However, extremes in median estimated corporate earnings and even dividend actions look to be nearly priced in for stocks.

Diversified commodity funds - still room to run?

Why U.S. inflation stands out compared to the rest of the world
|

The acceleration in U.S. CPI in April outpaced that of most other major economies. The U.S. genuinely faces the risk of higher inflation due to outsized stimulus and greater underlying long-term growth. But the timing of the vaccine rollout, abrupt changes in preferences, and technical factors, such as varying CPI basket weights, suggest there's much more to the story.

Using the Nasdaq-100 to tell the COVID story
|

We previously highlighted the technical damage done to tech themes in April and observed that tech (and other COVID "winners") are likely to underperform as economies reopen. The Nasdaq-100 (QQQ) became a favorite vehicle of investors to play those winners. So, it stands to reason that as COVID retreats in the U.S., the NASDAQ would give back outperformance.

Can stocks handle so many tax hikes?
|

Corporate, capital gains, and top individual rates have only been hiked simultaneously once, in 1942. With so few cases and the tax code so complex, simple conclusions like "stocks rallied last time" are insufficient. Pullbacks have been limited if the economic and monetary backdrops have been supportive.

Valuations in question
|

While global equities more expensive, confirmation of extreme overvaluation is lacking. Noting that trailing earnings yields look worse than forward yields with earnings expectations rising. Also consider adjustments for real earnings cyclicality, interest rates and economic growth. Metrics agree that the U.S. is relatively expensive and the Financials sector relatively cheap.

Yet at the end of Q1, the DJIA price-to-dividend yield finally got to the overvalued zone going back to 1920.

Initial jobless claims edge up

Initial jobless claims still more than 3x their pre-recession level, as labor market is far from healthy. But consumer comfort breaks out of recent range, which bodes well for spending growth ahead.

March sentiment/valuation update
|

Margin debt and ETF flows suggest speculators are "all in," partially financed by the "stimmy" checks. So far, it doesn't look like they saved that much of the stimulus. Money market cash has risen somewhat, but is still low relative to the value of the stock market. Valuations are stretched on P/E and on price-to-replacement cost book value.

Earnings rebound good for stocks, but for how long?
|

Earnings are following the post-recession pattern, but on a compressed timeline and amplified magnitude. Second years of bull markets are defined by faster EPS growth and declining P/E ratios. The risk later in 2021 is that by the time the EPS rebound is reported, the good news is priced in, leaving little to look forward to in 2022.

European equities - more risk, more return?

High-volatility stocks have performed strongly in the last year, contrary to the long-term history. This is because while high-volatility stocks outperform in bull markets they give back all their gains and more during bear markets. Current strong performance of high-volatility stocks supports a positive outlook for European equities.

Employment soundly beats expectations

The rebound from February's winter storms, vaccine rollouts, more reopenings, and stimulus impact lead to widespread job gains. Higher employment and participation translate into broad-based declines in unemployment rates. But the labor market remains a long way from the Fed's goal of full employment. Light vehicle sales rebound strongly. State coincident indexes show minimal risk of recession at the start of 2021.

Still looks like a 2021 boom, but where I could be wrong

I think the economy will boom in 2021 with massive stimulus, confirmed by surprises on the upside domestically and globally. Yet, there has already been a boom in goods spending, particularly durable goods, perhaps due to COVID. Augmented unemployment, if correct, could also suggest deeper problems in the labor market. I wonder if COVID has also distorted the supply of homes.
