  • What Could US Jobs Report Mean for the Fed and Rate Hikes?

    What Could US Jobs Report Mean for the Fed and Rate Hikes?

    Fed policymakers are watching job data closely, as the data gives the Fed insight as to whether the US economy (SPY) (IVV) is strong enough to withstand interest rate hikes. The Fed raised interest rates four times last year and signaled two more hikes in 2019, which is in contrast to the market’s expectation of no hike. The Fed has remained very positive on the tight labor market and has maintained that increasing rates should keep inflation in check.

    Could December’s Wage Growth Spook the Already Volatile Markets?

    Wage growth will likely be the most closely watched component of the US (VOO) jobs report. While the other components of the jobs report have shown a firm labor market, wage growth has been a missing piece for a while. While wage growth had disappointed market participants for the last few months, November’s wage growth was more or less in-line with expectations.

    Why the Fed Could Make Gold Shine Next Year

    A major factor weighing on gold prices this year was the Fed’s tightening cycle. Since the Fed started the current rate hike (BND) cycle in December 2015, it has hiked rates nine times, with the latest hike in December. If inflation (TIP) remains under control in 2019, the Fed is not expected to move much.

    Largest Ever One-Month Rotation into Bonds Signals Pessimism

    Another concerning statistic that came to light during the Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Fund Manager Survey was that investors made the largest ever one-month rotation into bonds (BND). As reported by CNBC, the survey said, “Investors are approaching extreme bearishness…This month’s survey [found] the biggest ever one-month rotation into the asset class.” The bond allocations rose 23 percentage points to net 35% underweight, the highest allocation to bonds since the Brexit vote in June 2016. The allocation to bonds also rose amid a drop in inflation expectations.

  • Goldman Sachs’ Take on Uncertain Stock Market: Get Defensive

    Goldman Sachs’ Take on Uncertain Stock Market: Get Defensive

    According to CNBC, Goldman Sachs (GS) analyst David Kostin released a research note on December 14, in which he said, “Investors should increase their defensiveness given our forecast for heightened risk and fat tails.” The bank’s conviction for the markets next year is mixed and the firm advises clients to protect themselves by owning “high quality” stocks. GS also believes that a lot of the movements in the markets in 2019 will depend on investor perception of the longevity of the current economic expansion. To be in a late cycle of economic expansion typically means growth slowing down and margins contracting, accompanied by higher inflation (TIP) and volatility (VIX).

    Could November’s Wage Growth Shake the Markets Again?

    Wage growth will likely be the most closely watched component of the US (VOO) jobs report. The metric has long been considered a missing piece of the otherwise strong labor market. While wage growth had disappointed market participants for the last few months, October’s wage growth was not disappointing.

    Could the Market Be Misinterpreting Powell’s Remarks?

    The answer depends on our understanding of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s comments. Now, some may argue that since Powell said “just below” neutral in his prepared remarks, he was trying to give a dovish message to the markets. On the other hand, what Powell said yesterday and what he said at the beginning of October may not be that different.

    Will US Wage Growth Encourage Fed to Continue Rate Hikes?

    Wage growth will likely be the most closely watched component of the US (VOO) jobs report. In September, wage growth was in-line with the market expectations at 2.8% year-over-year. Economists expect wage growth momentum to continue as the unemployment rate remains low and job additions remain buoyant.

    Stretched Equity Valuations Start to Weigh In

    Since equities have slumped in October, investors are reassessing the price they should be paying for the forward earnings. A stock is expensive or cheap only relative to the future earnings growth potential. Since investors are concerned about the future earnings growth (SPY) in 2019, valuations have also started to weigh on investors’ minds. Investors are realizing that the interest rate environment has shifted from being benign to reflecting tighter liquidity. Equities’ valuations are at a level where a small spark is enough to spook investors.
