CME Group Inc. CME reported an impressive average daily volume (ADV) for November 2021. The average daily volume of 23.1 million contracts per day was up 20% year over year due to higher volumes in four of the six product lines. There were 21 trading days in November this year.

Interest rate volume of 12.3 million contracts per day increased 40%. Energy volume of 2.4 million contracts increased 15% year over year. Moreover, Equity index volume of 5.6 million contracts per day was up 4%. However, Metals volume of 0.6 million contracts per day decreased 11%. Foreign exchange volumes increased 6% to about 0.8 million contracts per day while Agricultural volume of 1.4 million contracts per day decreased 11%.

Volume at CME Group was backed by solid operating leverage. A compelling suite of products is expected to help CME Group record higher volume, going forward. The company maintains a solid market share of about 90% in global futures trading and clearing services.

Expansion of futures products in the emerging markets plus an increase in non-transaction- related opportunities as well as OTC offerings should continue to contribute modestly to the top line in the years ahead.

Increasing electronic trading volume adds scalability and hence leverage to CME Group’s operating model. Efforts to expand and cross-sell through strategic alliances, acquisitions, new product initiatives, and a strong global presence will likely drive growth.

Price Performance

Shares of CME Group, carrying Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), have underperformed the industry in the past year. The stock has gained 23.1% compared with the industry’s increase of 29.7%. Nevertheless, its solid fundamentals will likely help CME stock to grow further.
