The Alpine F1 Team says its star driver is "conscious and good in himself" "
With the long weekend of Presidential Day approaching, the tone is changing slightly on Wall Street, with stocks remaining near record highs, but there is a sense that things are slowing down a bit from the rapid pace of recent weeks. Today has the potential to start a lighter volume trend towards the long weekend, despite a major earnings report coming out this afternoon. Thinner volume may mean sharper moves Hence, people should be more cautious and consider keeping trade sizes a little smaller than normal. The number of new jobless claims continued to decline, falling from a revised 812 last week000 the week before to 793000, however, was slightly above analysts' expectations for 750000 and not really moving the needle for this closely watched move. Claims have come down, but probably not as fast as most of us would like to see Stock futures did not move much in the data and held their slight gains before the open In the commodities industry, crude oil ticked a little lower to start the day after OPEC shaved off its demand expectations.One possible insight is that OPEC may expect the pandemic to come back a little more slowly, something we've been hearing from economists lately too Imagine walking around Disney World on a beautiful summer day and splashing ketchup on your hot dog.This is the scenario that some major companies reporting today would probably like to see Yes, we're talking about Walt Disney Co (NYSE : DIS) and Kraft Heinz Co (NASDAQ: KHC) While DIS is getting more exposure, KHC stock has done pretty well over the past year, booming last week when the Wall Street Journal reported that there were talks about the sale of the Planters division to Hormel Foods Corp (NYSE: HRL) were This deal - which KHC confirmed today - fits in with KHC's recent efforts to outsource some of its products, including the well-known cheese brand Cracker Barrel. KHC shares rose after the nuts were announced in pre-market trading and after KHC had surpassed Wall Street's expectations for the quarter, joining about 80% of the S&P 500 companies, which topped analyst estimates for the fourth quarter, shares of Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE: UBER) recorded in the Pre-market trading slumped despite 2020 net loss decreasing year-over-year in 2019 The problem for investors seemed to be that UBER failed to meet analysts' quarterly revenue guidance after this week, earnings parade is slowing down a bit, but some large retailers as well as the semiconductor NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) are still ahead. The schedule for tomorrow looks however h looks relatively calm, and of course Monday is a federal holiday so things close, profit-taking before the weekend is still possible.Normally, expect small profit-taking as the market approaches a long weekend of record highs, difficult to predict this time around as it still does looks like investors have a collective case of FOMO (fear of missing out) Even when the market collapsed in late January amid the frenzy of madness, it returned, thanks in part to continued optimism about vaccinations, stimuli and reopening, working against this sentiment are some worrying reports of new virus variants that can spread more easily and appear more deadly to its own no need to have a degree in finance to know that new locks can quickly wipe out some of the Wall Street reopening craze Everyone envisions this trip to Disney World or just the local ballpark this summer, but it's fair to say That things are taking longer to get back to normal than many of us thought With that in mind, few should be surprised when Fed chairman Jerome Powell said yesterday that the Fed was still committed to keeping interest rates near zero and $ 120 billion in monthly assets to buy Powell's resolute for months Powell's speech is a possible reason bonds found some buyers yesterday, but the main cause was likely a benign consumer price index (CPI) report for January that showed the core CPI declined to 1.4% yoy from 16% in December At the same time, the so-called “yield curve” between two- and ten-year government bond yields is the steepest since 2017, and it seems that these positive US. Long-term yields may attract some international investors who can't find yield overseas.Corporate bonds have found some love lately even among investors looking for yield, analysts said, but even so-called high-yielding corporate bonds are lower than ever before Anyone getting into corporate bonds - especially high-yielding ones - should remember that there are risks involved, including possible defaults. Many investors also look beyond traditional stocks and fixed income securities, one reason why the Special Purpose Acquisition Companies, SPAC) continues to sizzle this could be because there is a lot of money coming into the market, which is sometimes good for people going outside the S&P 500 Index (SPX) or the Nasdaq 100 (NDX) This behavior could continue, but again, care should be taken Make sure you have done your research and understand the risk you are taking (and the potential losses to face) Conclusion: The longer-term picture Yesterday we realized that the earnings recession may be over as many analysts now expect fourth quarter earnings to surpass last year's level But that's the data for 2020 What could this mean for 2021? Analysts had been expecting pretty good results earlier this year, which partly explains why the market had this long rally, and now some are looking for even better results for 2021, partly due to the excitement many companies have expressed in the current earnings season Research firm FactSet now expects earnings growth of 23 in the calendar year 4% from 221% back in December Research firm CFRA found this week that 70% of the sub-industries of the S&P 500 have revised up EPS estimates for 2021, with energy, Finances and materials have the highest percentage of companies raising their forecasts. In the short term, this doesn't necessarily mean a lot as we are basically in the "show-me state" - that is, people can predict things, but then they have to happen otherwise they are just fun numbers to chat aboutHowever, if the bottom line continues to brighten and the numbers are in line with expectations, it may mean that valuations - something many analysts have been wrestling over lately - could tighten without the market necessarily falling that the "E" in the P / E ratio could start catching up with the P that would be a very good thing for those who have long been betting on stocks. This could actually start to happen in the 12 month forward valuation of the S&P 500 recently fell from 22 to 224 in December, FactSet noted, but note that comparisons will be much easier for businesses if the market "collapses" related to last year's pandemic. In other words, it's important to know that Understand the context behind the improving numbers TABLE OF THE DAY: TECH SPLIT The PHLX Semiconductor Index (SOX - Candlestick) has for the past three Outperformed the Nasdaq 100 (NDX - purple line) for months, although both are up sharply The growing demand for semiconductor chips as the economy re-opens could be one reason chip inventories are advancing faster than the broader tech market, along with a worrying one Chip deficiency that develops gradually (see below) Data Source: Nasdaq Chart Source: TD Ameritrade's thinkorswim® platform For illustrative purposes only Past performance does not guarantee future results Volatility Chronicles: One really amazing move in recent sessions is the way the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) just slowed and fell back to where it was before the short-selling frenzy at the end of January Back then it jumped from 21 to 37 in just one day, and it's been trading back near 22 lately We saw a similarly rapid rise and fall last October, So it's not uncommon, however, it's uncommon for VIX to deviate from a set area and then come back there so quickly Don't be surprised if there is a second act, especially given that options trading volume has been at record highs over the past year reached and is still high. In addition, the V IX Futures Complex in Contango, with prices continuing to be above the spot price that means futures traders expect at least more uncertainty as we approach a long-awaited spring jam and keep grappling with the virus, Toppy Tech: Some of the Biggest Tech -Mega-caps like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), and now Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA), which are sometimes grouped with tech, seem to be bumping their heads against resistance yesterday and on as well Last Friday, tech weakness seemed to weigh on the S&P 500 Index (SPX), which is dominated by the "FAANGs" and their friends like MSFT and TSLA. There are double problems with the mega-caps. First of all, they all have after this one Slump this past September and October has come a long way very quickly, which has led to reviews on a few, including Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN), AAPL, and Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) are looking a bit stretched in the eyes of some analysts, for example, AAPL's price-to-earnings (P / E) ratio is roughly twice the historical level of the share Sagen You what you want about low interest rates that make P / E less important, but it seems to be a metric many investors are still watching.Second, the earnings season for big tech is basically over, making it difficult to find key catalysts in the short term Instead, many investors are flocking to cyclical sectors like finance, energy, and small caps, which do best in a recovering economy, which also explains, in part, why the semiconductor sector has all but avoided the pressures of the mega-caps in a growing economy could increase the demand for semiconductor chips found in so many consumer products to large ones like automobiles chips and other staples: the Yesterday's core consumer price index remained unchanged While the 10-year treasury has risen by more than 20 basis points since the start of the year, it is at a lukewarm 114% salary report last week's salary report reminded us how far we are from pre-COVID full employment levels Then why is all this inflation talk whirling around? A lot has to do with expectations - especially concerns that the absorption of all of these new fiscal stimulus reports that are reportedly on the way could open the floodgates for consumer demand once the US hits achieves herd immunity While this is certainly a legitimate concern, there may be another concern - raw material shortages and geopolitics.And we're not just talking about corn, soybeans and crude oil (although these raw materials have certainly increased in recent months), but there are growing reports too On Semiconductor Shortages From automakers to Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), the country's tech giants have reported increasingly acute chip shortages. Geopolitics is typically in the flow during the power transition in the U.and COVID-19 may exacerbate the problem.Some have even called for semiconductor manufacturing to be restructured for national security reasons. Chips are the staple of the modern economy, and as anyone who struggled to buy toiletries last April knows, it can become a bigger one Disorder - even inflationary - if you lack basic needs TD Ameritrade® Comment Educational Only Member SIPC Photo by Thomas Kelley via Unsplash More Info from Benzinga Click here to buy options from Benzinga com Benzinga does not offer investment advice All rights reserved
