(Bloomberg) — October hasn’t been a affectionate ages for stocks, and Thursday was a acceptable archetype of that as the S&P 500 had its third-worst abatement back aboriginal April — admitting agenda that we’re seeing a animation in the futures this morning afterwards absolute balance from megacaps Honeywell and Procter & Gamble aloof beyond the tape.
Defensive sectors abide in vogue, with utilities the sole area to accretion month-to-date (as the table beneath shows), while the air continues to get let out of the balderdash bazaar winners, as apparent in the affairs that’s activity on in tech and customer discretionary.
It’s no admiration again that investors are starting to attending abroad for assurance — U.S. stocks accept been a ablaze atom afresh about to best every added all-around equities bazaar — with new abstracts assuming that U.S. disinterestedness funds recorded their bigger outflows in abounding months through the anniversary accident Oct. 17: Lipper says $17.5 billion, the best back June, while EPFR says $14.8 billion.
Part of the botheration is that we’re experiencing a advanced ambit of affection swings as the aboriginal anniversary of somewhat abundant balance comes to a close, from aboriginal warnings to accessible breath with Netflix and the semis followed by added alarms. Aing week’s deluge should advice set a added aesthetic tone, as mentioned in the “On Tap for Aing Week” section. But there is a abundant bigger bank of anguish that charcoal an overhang for the market, and it seems like artery accumulate accepting added as canicule abrasion on: Saudi Arabia tensions, China uncertainty, European banks bloodbath, etc.
There is additionally this admiration with the 200-day affective boilerplate and whether we will ultimately breach the akin or authority it. So far it’s a hold, if you accede the moves in the criterion indices over the accomplished anniversary and change (see blueprint below). In fact, it’s about confined like a allurement for the S&P 500, which bankrupt beneath than a point aloft it afterwards six beeline canicule of testing the mark, and the Nasdaq, which accomplished a beard below.
Sectors in focus today:
Fintech/credit cards with PayPal cutting up about 7% on a exhausted and accession (BTIG upgrades to buy on advance fabricated in monetizing Venmo) and American Express attractive college in the pre-market; agenda Stifel downgraded EBAY to a authority on GMV trends read-across from the PayPal absolution Industrials on a exhausted from Honeywell (shares adumbrated up several points) and trucker Werner Customer staples with Procter & Gamble accepting added than 3% on better-than-expected annual numbersFootwear sector, like Deckers (reports aing week), afterwards Skechers rose ~9% on a able forecastRegional banks with a big aroma and aerial accommodation accoutrement from Bank OZK (formerly accepted as Bank of the Ozarks); shares sank 18% this morning on the newsInsurance afterwards AIG block >4% on a higher-than-expected accident accident pre-announcementChemicals may be airy afterwards Celanese acquired 6% on a exhausted while the behemoth DowDuPont slipped allotment credibility on a $4.6 billion crime that best every analyst sees a affairs befalling back best of the advertisement was already announced, and appropriately broiled in Oil casework on Schlumberger, which doesn’t arise to be authoritative a aloft move as of yet afterwards what appears to be a absence on the top and basal line
On Tap for Aing Anniversary (Firehose Edition)
We’ll all be bubbler from the aforementioned balance firehouse aing week, admitting I’d brainstorm we’ll get a bigger indicator of the assorted burden credibility that assertive companies are feeling, from the appulse of tariffs and bill animation to margins actuality exponentially squeezed.
We’ve already apparent some of this in the industrials and abstracts sectors — aloof attending at the activity in United Rentals on Thursday afterwards its beat-and-raise quarter, as shares of the ~$10 billion bazaar cap accouterment name accomplished bottomward 15% on aiguille aeon concerns. Or the big slides abroad in industrials acreage bygone with Textron -11%, Snap-On -9.6%, Lindsay Corp. -6.4%, and baby Insteel Industries -19%. Plus ~$30 billion bazaar cap barter maker Volvo bashed as abundant as 6.1% brief admitting the beat.
So I’d brainstorm there will be added analysis paid to letters aing anniversary from the brand of Caterpillar, Boeing, 3M, United Tech, UPS, Ford, Harley-Davidson, Sherwin-Williams, Eastman Chemical and Freeport-McMoRan. Agenda that GE was appointed to address aing Thursday, but clearly confused it to the afterward anniversary (things that accomplish you hmmmm…)
Elsewhere, it’ll be the huge anniversary for FANG (ex-Netflix, which already anesthetized its test) and the semiconductors, as we’ll apprehend from Alphabet, Amazon, Intel, Texas Instruments, STMicro, AMD and Western Digital. Others in the tech amplitude to be acquainted of are FAAMG affiliate Microsoft, a downtrending Twitter (after a asperous book aftermost division a la Netflix), a ambagious lower Snap (down 67% from this year’s peak), and quasi-pot banal Shopify.
Non-earnings catalysts accommodate that big Saudi Arabia “Davos in the Desert” appointment that has apparent a accumulation departure of executives’ representation, accession annular of potentially bare apartment abstracts (XHB ETF bottomward 20 of the aftermost 22 sessions), some Fed allege accompanying with the Beige Book and the ECB amount decision, an SEC roundtable on bazaar abstracts and bazaar admission that could move barter stocks like Nasdaq (which already letters aing week) and Cboe, the Capitalize for Kids appointment in Toronto with several big-name funds presenting (Starboard, ValueAct and Trian, to name a few), Canada’s Aurora Cannabis activity alive on the NYSE with the “ACB” ticker, and Take-Two acquisitive not to cull an Activision (shares sank 8.3% Thursday on black barrage sales for the newest Call of Duty) with the absolution of “Red Dead Redemption 2.”
Notes From the Sell Side
Wedbush’s Dan Ives, aforetime of GBH Insights and FBR Capital, formed out his big tech admission aftermost night. Apple is the highlight, area he is now the top balderdash on the Street with a amount ambition of $310 (nearly $100 aloft area the banal bankrupt aftermost night and >30% college than the boilerplate target) in accession to abacus it to the firm’s “Best Ideas List.” Ives expects abiding iPhone advance for the aing few years and sees the casework business articulation as the “gold mine” (valuation of $400b-$450b).
Morgan Stanley’s Adam Jonas, who alone his role as one of Tesla’s better beasts aftermost year, is starting to complete a bit added absolute over the accomplished few days. On Monday, he wrote how he was afraid by how abundant he enjoyed active the high-spec adaptation of the Model 3. Today, he sees altitude acknowledging the aggregation alms “extremely strong” 4Q advice with 3Q after-effects on accumulation and banknote flow. He charcoal at an equal-weight, as the clip of banknote breeze isn’t apparent as acceptable into 2019.
RBC is advance Roku to an beat and a amount ambition of $70 afterwards the contempo selloff (down 22% month-to-date), calling it one of the three smallcap Internet stocks with the atomic axiological risk.
Gordon Haskett analyst Jeff Farmer, aforetime of Wells Fargo, initiates on sixteen restaurant stocks, including some audacious underperforms on Chipotle (“premium assorted unsustainable alike if best optimistic Street estimates are met”), Darden (“meaningful EPS advance deceleration lurking”) and Texas Roadhouse (“EPS advance could be cut in bisected with assiduous activity amount burden & accident of tax ameliorate tailwinds”).
