  • Hold That Recession: U.S. Indicators Are Trouncing Forecasts

    Hold That Recession: U.S. Indicators Are Trouncing Forecasts

    (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. economy is outperforming expectations by the most this year, offering a fresh rebuttal to last month’s resurgent recession fears fueled by the trade war and a manufacturing slump.The Bloomberg Economic Surprise Index has reached an 11-month high after four indicators released Thursday, including existing home sales and jobless claims, each surpassed expectations. The gauge continued to advance after swinging to positive from negative on Tuesday for the first time this year. The data also pushed a similar measure produced by Citigroup Inc. to the highest level since April 2018.“It says things are getting better,” said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Leuthold Group in Minneapolis “There’s a definitive change in the growth profile and there’s an acceleration in growth. It’s interesting how pessimistic the attitudes still are among investors, yet when you look at surprise indexes, you would think people would feel better about growth. There’s a disconnect.”The readings are signaling a somewhat brighter mood about the world’s largest economy after some indicators and markets stoked fears last month of a quicker ending to the record-long economic expansion.Federal Reserve policy makers on Wednesday highlighted the economy’s strength even as they moved forward with their second-straight interest-rate reduction to guard against elevated risks to the expansion. Investors are growing more upbeat too, lifting U.S. equity benchmarks back near records this month.Paulsen also noted similar surprise upbeat readings in other parts of the world, including Europe and Japan.St. Louis Fed President James Bullard, asked Friday about rising surprise indexes, pointed to mixed readings and diverging sectors. “We have a very strong labor market that’s underpinning good consumption growth in the U.S., the household sector is generally doing well,” he told Wharton Business Radio on Sirius XM. He said other parts of the economy are seeing weakness with global growth slowing and Europe “teetering on recession.”Thursday’s raft of U.S. data included the Labor Department’s report on initial filings for unemployment benefits, which matched the most optimistic estimate in Bloomberg’s survey and were just above historically low levels.Elsewhere, the unchanged reading on the Conference Board’s index of leading economic indicators -- a barometer of future growth -- compared with projections for a decline.In addition, an industry report on August existing home sales sailed above all forecasts following a report Wednesday showing the strongest pace of housing starts since 2007, signaling that residential construction may add to economic growth in the third quarter for the first time since the end of 2017.Within manufacturing, the Philadelphia Fed’s index of manufacturing business activity in September topped estimates Thursday as factories continued to expand at a moderate pace. On the other hand, the New York Fed’s Empire State factory index was more downbeat earlier this week.To be sure, several better-than-forecast data points don’t amount to an all-clear sign for the economy. American business is still reluctant to ramp up capital investment against a backdrop of trade policy uncertainty and tepid global demand.The chances of recession in the next 12 months are up to 35% from 20% at the end of last year, according to a Bloomberg survey of economists earlier this month. Forecasters still project 2.2% GDP growth this year and 1.7% in 2020.Recession concerns grew last month after President Donald Trump announced more tariffs on Chinese goods, prompting a retaliation, while the stock market slumped and a key part of the Treasury yield curve inverted -- a traditional harbinger of recession.“People got overly pessimistic about the U.S. economic outlook,” said Mark Vitner, senior economist with Wells Fargo & Co. Now, he says, “the message is growth is slower, yes, but the risk of recession is grossly overstated. As long as the Fed continues to do the right thing” by cutting rates a couple more times.“A year from now we’ll look back and say, yes, we pivoted to slower growth and job growth slowed, but there is still a lot going right with the economy,” he said.(Adds comment from Fed’s Bullard in eighth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Jeff Kearns in Washington at;Steve Matthews in Atlanta at smatthews@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Scott Lanman at, Vince GolleFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

  • Ambev Stock Might Be the Best Beer Bet Heading into 2020

    Ambev Stock Might Be the Best Beer Bet Heading into 2020

    Back in April, I featured Brazilian beer company Ambev (NYSE:ABEV) in an article about the best large-cap stocks to own under $10. As I write this, Ambev stock is up 4.5%.Source: Daniel Spiess via FlickrThe two other stocks recommended: Ford (NYSE:F) is down 1.6% and Sirius XM (NYSE:SIRI) is up 13.7%. Over the same five months, the S&P 500 is up 2.5%, an indication that low-priced stocks did well over the summer.As for Anheuser-Busch (NYSE:BUD), who owns more than 60% of ABEV stock is up 6.9% over the same period, 240 basis points higher than its Brazilian subsidiary. However, year to date it's up 45.0% including dividends through Sept. 11, 2.4 times Ambev's total return for the year. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWith three-and-a-half months left in 2019, I'm wondering if ABEV, BUD, or some other beer stock is the best bet heading into 2020. Ambev Stock is the Best BetAmbev's 15-year total annual return is quite good, at 11.2%. That trails both its brewing peers and the Brazilian market at 13.5%. However, the entire U.S. market over this period could only muster a total return of 9.3%. * 10 Battered Tech Stocks to Buy Now My InvestorPlace colleague Vince Martin recently highlighted in an article in late August that Ambev has a much stronger balance sheet than its parent and is growing its normalized EBITDA on an organic basis at more than 10% per year. In the first six months of 2019, Ambev's revenues increased by 7.4%. Three of its operating segments: Brazil, Central America and the Caribbean, and Canada delivered growth while only the company's South American division (excluding Brazil) experienced declining sales. South America might be experiencing a craft beer boom but Ambev's holding its own in a very competitive market. It's also important to remember that Ambev also makes non-alcoholic beverage products. In the first six months of 2019, it grew this segment by 19.6%, accounting for 15% of Ambev's overall revenues. Although Ambev has only paid an eight-cent dividend so far in 2019, its goal is to deliver an average annual yield of 5%. Currently, its forward dividend yield is 5.2%. Over the long haul, buying ABEV stock under $5 should deliver above-average results, including the dividends. Bud's the CallEven though Budweiser might have a ton of debt on its balance sheet (its net debt at the end of June was $104.2 billion) it still managed to generate $9.1 billion in free cash flow in the first six months of the year. On an annualized basis over the trailing 12 months, BUD had $11.5 billion in free cash flow, $54.1 billion in revenue, and a free cash flow margin of 21.1%. This means it's generating 21 cents of free cash flow for every $1 of revenue.Anheuser-Busch said to be reviving its IPO plans for its Asian business, a move that's expected to raise $5 billion and give it additional liquidity on the remainder of its ownership stake, the company's giving itself financial flexibility to pay down debt, repurchase shares, buy a cannabis company, or countless other things it could do with the funds. The point is, Anheuser-Busch is the largest beer company in the world. Investors shouldn't have a problem with a dividend yield of 3.5% given the appreciation it's experienced so far in 2019. The Bottom Line on Ambev StockIf you're not sure which beer company to back, a good alternative would be to buy a thematic portfolio, either through an ETF, mutual fund, or third-party provider such as Motif Investing. Motif currently has a portfolio called "Take a Shot" that invests in makers of alcoholic beverages including BUD and ABEV, which account for 19.4% and 16.6% of the portfolio, respectively. Beer stocks account for 46.3% of the portfolio with wine and spirits, accounting for the rest.Over the past year, it's generated a return of 8.6%, better than both the S&P 500 and the Invesco Dynamic Food & Beverage ETF (NYSEARCA:PBJ). At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

  • JPMorgan Is Still Bearish on General Electric Stock

    JPMorgan Is Still Bearish on General Electric Stock

    It's been almost two weeks since General Electric (NYSE:GE) announced its Q2 earnings. Although they were slightly better than expected, General Electric stock has dropped meaningfully since its results were unveiled. Source: Shutterstock InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBefore you buy GE stock, you might want to consider that the biggest GE stock bear -- Stephen Tusa of JPMorgan, who was bearish on General Electric stock way back in April 2013 -- continues to be unimpressed by CEO Larry Culp's turnaround plan. * 7 Safe Dividend Stocks for Investors to Buy Right Now Investors don't seem too impressed with Culp's plan, either. Since Culp's taken the top job at GE in October 2018, the GE stock price is down about 25%.Despite the warnings of JPMorgan's Tusa, the longtime General Electric stock bear, some investors might think they should be greedy when others are fearful when it comes to GE stock. But that would be a mistake. GE isn't the company it once was, Tusa is not the only analyst who's skeptical about Culp's ability to turn the company around. Moreover, there are better stocks with share prices under $10 and there are better names with market caps of around $80 billion. There are many reasons why investors might want to think twice about General Electric stock. Here are three of them The Bear's Not BitingEven though GE beat analysts' estimates and the company raised its full-year outlook, Tusa suggested that weakness at its Power and Renewables businesses made General Electric stock undesirable."The quarter was a miss operationally, with the combined Power/Renewables segments worse (despite no H-class turbine deliveries which is accretive), offset by modest upside at Healthcare and a material miss at Aviation, the key value driver," Tusa stated in his a July 31 note to his clients. "The stock is up on the headlines, as it has been many times before, but, like in the past, the underlying core fundamentals are actually a bit worse, and we remain underweight on this basis and would be selling into any strength," the analyst added. Tusa has a $5 price target on General Electric stock at the moment. To make things worse, GE stock price breached its 200-day moving average on Aug. 9 for the first time since early June. Nine analysts have a "buy" rating on GE, nine have a "hold" rating and two have a "sell" rating. As for their target prices, the high is $21, and the average is $11.83. If GE stock price rebounds to the average target, it will have generated a return of nearly 25%. That's tempting, but I wouldn't bet against Tusa at this point. Better Choices Than General Electric Stock There aren't a lot of large-cap stocks, other than financials, with share prices of less than $10.However, I would suggest that Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI), Ford (NYSE:F), Cenovus (NYSE:CVE), and CNH Industrial (NYSE:CNH) would all make better buys than General Electric stock at this point.As for large-cap stocks with market caps of around $80 billion, investors could put together a diversified, 20-company portfolio of similarly valued stocks that could do better than GE stock over the long haul.Stocks that come to mind include Mondelez International (NASDAQ:MDLZ), CVS Health (NYSE:CVS), and Intuit (NASDAQ:INTU). As I stated in July, the gains GE has made in 2019 -- it's up 23.3% including dividends, through August 9 -- are profits that should be taken. "While it might regain positive free cash flow by 2020, its earning power won't be nearly as robust as it once was. As recently as 2014, GE had almost $21 billion of free cash flow. After selling so many divisions to tidy up its balance sheet, it's lost the ability to generate significant cash flow," I wrote in a column published on July 12."Analysts like Stephen Tusa see that as a big problem. I would tend to agree with them." I added.At the end of the day, Larry Culp won't be able to return GE to its glory years. He might be able to build a reasonably sound business in three to five years, but he's never going to make it a $300 billion market cap giant like it was before the last major recession in 2008. Investors shouldn't buy General Electric stock until Stephen Tusa changes his stripes and becomes a GE stock bull. But you've probably got a better shot at winning the lottery. Once analysts are bears, they usually stay bearish. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
