Week Ahead

Week Ahead: FOMC minutes, Walmart earnings, next PMI round in focus

US discounters Walmart and Target, and home improvement retailers Home Depot and Lowe’s report their earnings this week. With the exception of Target, these stocks have dramatically outpaced the S&P 500 this year. The global monetary policy outlook also gets an update this week thanks to minutes from the FOMC, ECB, and RBA, while flash PMIs for August will help shape the Q3 growth outlook.

Morning Note

France quarantine knocks travel & leisure stocks

European markets turned south on Friday led by a decline in travel and leisure stocks after the UK added France to its 14-day quarantine list. Yesterday, US stocks dipped after a run at the all-time highs failed again – the S&P 500 finished the day down 0.2%, but the Nasdaq eked out a small gain. Asian markets ticked up amid a mixed bag of data and economic indicators and European stocks slipped in early trade after falling across the board on Thursday. After a decent start to the week it looks like equity markets are finishing off rather meekly.

Morning Note

Ex-divis hit FTSE, US stocks near record high, trade comes back in focus

US stocks rallied to close near its all-time highs yesterday amid what some are saying are signs of greater confidence in the economic recovery in the US. Or perhaps it’s just even speedier decoupling between Wall St and Main St. Nevertheless, bond yields pushed higher amid a faster-than-expected rise in US inflation, whilst the market is starting to focus again on trade and tariffs.

US inflation hot, stocks keep higher as bonds slip

US inflation was a little hot and certainly has a stagflation feel about it, but this won’t be a concern for the Federal Reserve in the slightest. CPI rose 0.6% month-on-month in July, unchanged from a month before and ahead of the 0.3% expected. Year-over-year, headline inflation rose from 0.6% to 1%, whilst core CPI was up 1.6% in July vs the 1.2% expected. Food prices were +4.6% YOY, with beef +14.2%.
