    Boyar Value Group 3rd Quarter Letter

    As we observed in recent quarterly letters, market returns have continued to be dominated by 4 companies from the group that CNBC's James Cramer has dubbed the FAANG stocks: during the first 9 months of 2018, Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google accounted for a majority of the S&P 500's gains. More broadly, the top 10 contributors for the S&P 500, virtually all of them high-multiple technology businesses, were responsible for more than 110% of the indices' gain for the first 9 months of 2018. The S&P 500, inclusive of dividends, advanced 10.56% for the first 9 months of 2018, but this movement was driven by a dwindling number of stocks.

    Tariffs begin to take bite out of U.S. corporate earnings growth

    U.S. company earnings growth is slowing after a bumper start to the year, and the reality of an escalating trade war between two of the world's largest economies is starting to weigh on companies ranging from Caterpillar Inc (CAT.N) to Ford Motor Co (F.N). While earnings growth is still high at 22 percent so far this quarter, the amount by which S&P 500 index companies are beating analyst estimates is nearly half of what it was during the first quarter, according to Refinitiv data. Along with rising interest rates which are making bonds more attractive, slower earnings growth is eroding investor sentiment and contributed to Tuesday's sharp sell in equities globally.

    U.S. Stocks Pare Drop; Treasuries Rally, Oil Falls: Markets Wrap

    Treasury yields fell and crude oil tumbled. The S&P 500 pared to 0.2 percent a loss that took it below 2,700 for the first time since July, while the Nasdaq Composite Index flirted with a correction before rebounding to be little changed. Industrial stocks remained under pressure after disappointing results from Caterpillar and 3M added to worries that rising costs will erode profit margins.

    Traders See Early Morning Sell-Off as Warranted But No Reason to Panic

    A quick survey by Bloomberg News of 10 sell-side and buy-side traders and portfolio managers saw little sense of panic in the first few hours of trading, but some steps to limit risk, particularly across China internet stocks. Most attributed today’s weakness to third quarter earnings from industrial bellwethers Caterpillar and 3M, and concerns over Italy’s budget, Saudi Arabia and Brexit continuing to weigh on sentiment in the midst of third quarter earnings reports. Alon Rosin, Oppenheimer’s head of institutional equity derivatives, said his team is looking to selectively monetize/roll down ETF hedges as implied volatility is relatively lower than two weeks ago, when the S&P 500 dropped more than 5 percent in two days.

    American Electric Power boosts dividend 8.1% to push yield above utilities sector's

    American Electric Power Co. Inc. said Tuesday it will raise its quarterly dividend by 8.1% to 67 cents a share from 62 cents a share. The new dividend will be payable Dec. 10 to shareholders of record on Nov. 9. The Ohio-based public utility's stock rose 0.6% in afternoon trade. At current prices, the new annual dividend rate would imply a dividend yield 3.64%, compared with the SPDR Utilities Select Sector ETF's yield of 3.35% and the implied yield for the S&P 500 of 2.00%, according to FactSet. American Electric Power shares have rallied 6.0% over the past three months, while the utilities ETF has gained 4.4% and the S&P 500 has slipped 2.2%.

    Kroger's seasonal hiring plan of over 10,000 employees down sharply from last year

    Kroger Co. said Tuesday it will hire more than 10,000 seasonal employees for the holiday season, which represents a big decline from last year's seasonal hiring plans. This year's seasonal hires will be in areas including customer service support, e-commerce, merchandising, operations and the pharmacy. The supermarket chain said interested candidates should apply for seasonal jobs at "jobs.kroger.com." Last year, the company had estimated hiring 14,000 seasonal employees for the holidays. Kroger's stock rose 1.2% in afternoon trade. It has rallied 33% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 6.9%.

    Materials sector briefly dips into bear-market territory as Trump bump fades

    The materials sector briefly slipped into bear-market territory earlier Tuesday, before paring some losses, but was still on track for the lowest close in 17 months. The SPDR Material Select Sector ETF was down as much as 3.1% at an intraday low of $51.03, which was 20.4% below the Jan. 26 record close of $64.09. Declines of 20% or more from a bull-market peak are viewed by many on Wall Street as defining a bear market. The sector tracker (XLB) bounced slightly since, and was down 1.2% at $52.05 in afternoon trade, which was 18.8% below its record, and on track for the lowest close since May 18, 2017. The materials sector was seen as one of the most promising in a Trump presidency, as it includes companies that would benefit from infrastructure spending, including building a border wall, and from measures to boost the mining industries. But after running up 21.8% in 2017, to outpace the S&P 500's 19.4% rise, the XLB has tumbled 14.0% so far this year, compared with a 2.1% rise in the S&P 500.

    All the News Is Bad News as Stocks ‘Flip the Switch’ on Earnings

    Look at Caterpillar Inc., plunging 9.4 percent after saying third-quarter income rose more than expected. Same thing with Harley Davidson, and with United Rentals Inc. last week, which lost 15 percent after sales and income exceeded targets. While often a haven, earnings season can also be a dicey proposition for traders: however good the news, most of it is known before companies start reporting.
