Monthly investing overview, April 2021

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

April 30 Friday: Market Summary:

SPY-0.6%: Month-End tiny pullback from highs, despite tech and EMs cooling.

Cool price action feeds "peak growth" fear, yet analyst catchup upgrades abound.

Despite 1/3 of global earnings this week, S&P is exactly flat near All Time Highs.

Next week: ISM, NFP Jobs; UK AU CA NO TR rate decisions. Smaller earnings.


TLT+0.3% Bonds quiet, GLD-0.3%: ECI Wages & PCE-PI (~CPI) beat consensus.

Kaplan (hawk, but non voter until 2023) repeated his preference for taper soon, (But Chair Powell leads FOMC consensus that system leverage is acceptable, and stimulus is needed until laarge jobs gains, and inflation holds over 2%.

The Fed has long been more concerned about avoiding JP-like deflation risks, as tech and EM industrialisation drives tech goods prices softer in the long term.)


EEM-1.7%: HK EWH-2%: CN PMIs missed; FinTech regulations will hit techs.

INDY-2% Indian virus tragedy continues to drag Oil. Smallcaps IWM-1.3%.


AAPL-1.5%: EU Commission antitrust action started by Spotify SPOT-4%.

XLF-1%: BARC-5%, BNP-2%, BBVA+1%, CBOE+2%, LPLA+2%, AON+5%, LAZ-2%.

April 29 Thursday: Market Summary:

SPY+0.6%: Tech earnings boom rescued a profit-taking day from record ATHs.


TLT-0.3%: Drragged by hotter SP,DE CPI's 2-4ET cooling DE30Yr Buxl-1%; then US Advance GDP 830ET was in-line; but Pending Home Sales 10ET was cooler than expected, bouncing Bonds 0.6% from day lows, helping tech QQQ+1.2%.


Weekly Jobless was in line. A better indicator for NFP Jobs, is ADP next Weds.


EU Autos -3% led EU Stoxx weakness; but soon after EU closed -0.8%, US stocks bounced 1% off 12ET lows, back into the green started by Biden's bullish 1 hour address overnight. XLF+1.8% financials rose on more rotation to value. XLE+1.1%: Oil+1.7%. LME Copper-0.5% tested $10k, Lumber+3%. EEM-0.3%, IWM-0.4%.


On Friday: CN PMIs; 830ET PCE-PI deflator and ECI wages: inflation readings.


TSLA-3% on KR chip shortage fault. BTC-3%. RIOT-8%, MARA-9%, COIN-1%.


LYFT-10%, UBER-6%: Labor Secretary Walsh wants to class gig workers as employees. VZ+1.5% Verizon exploring $5B asset sales from AOL, Yahoo.


Equal biggest earnings day of the Quarter: same $11T as yesterday (10% each), but with a larger number of key stocks (marked with capitals below). Impossible for analysts and investors to parse such a data flood; this forces prioritization.


Earnings movers: XLC+2.8% Communications Services was boosted by FB+7% on ad price hikes, but Twitter TWTR-10% AH. AAPL= saw profit-taking from +2%.

April 28 Wednesday: Market Summary:

SPY=: Stocks quiet on FOMC autopilot rate Q&A: bounced when Powell said not thinking about Taper; eased back when he said macro goals (jobs, 2% inflation) do not have to be fully met, to taper (reduce) $120B monthly bond buys (QE). He does not see financial stability risks, despite some 'frothy' markets.


The Fed expects the growing inflation spike to be transitory, due to huge labour market slack, at least until UI jobless support runs out in Sept. Currencies rallied DXY-0.5%, on lack of taper; UBS PPP model shows USD to be expensive.


GDP due Thursday; PCEI is key, on Friday. Lumber & Grains are acting toppy.


TLT=: Bonds snoozed too, bouncing on Powell, after early weakness fear about Biden's $1.8T 10 year American Families Plan tonight 21hET, in his address to joint session of Congress: will boost education and childcare spending. This is like a State of The Union speech: marking his 100th day (and 200m+ vaxxed). He wants to build trust in Big Government (tough, after US COVID ends soon).


EEM+0.8%: Emerging Markets lifted by Energy XLE+1.6%, on Oil+3% (peaked after weekly inventories 1030ET): Goldman upgraded 3Q21 Brent oil forecast to $80. This lifted Chevron CVX+2%, Apache APA+8%, Hess HES+8%.


(Explainer: Main active EEM weightings: China primarily; & RU/TR/EEu in EU timezone, LatAm BR/MX in US timezone. EEM index/ETF/futures, are in USD, so it includes EM FX impact, which usually adds onto EM stock index moves. Non-US DMs' EFA(=EU+JP), is less volatile, keys off choppier US SPY, and EEM.)


BTC=: Bitcoin flat, but RIOT+10%, MARA+8%. IWM=: smallcaps flat.


Earnings movers: GOOG+3% ($50B buyback), Shopify SHOP+11% (on growth) led Communications Services XLC+1%, despite Pinterest PINS-14% on slowing users.

SPOT-12%, led Tech XLK-1%; MFST-3% TXN-4%, AMD-1%, beat but guided weak; AAPL+2%; Qualcomm QCOM+5% (phone chip demand); ServiceNow NOW-7%;

ENPH-14%: Enphase solar tech. AMGN-7%, HUM-2%, led healthcare XLV-0.3%.

BA-3%: Boeing missed due to slow global vax rollout, led Industrals XLI-0.2%.

SBUX-3% Starbux missed revenue estimates, on global vax delays. MDLZ+4%

Ford F-3% missed: shortage of basic chips, due to Renesas (JP supplier) chip fire on March 19; and CN over-ordering chips, due to trade war fears; and lockdowns lifting consumer electronics demand. US chipmakers had expected a slowdown.

Premium chips (GPUs, CPUs; unlike basic RAM, ROM, ICs) are not in a shortage.


Today is the busiest earnings day of the Quarter: $11T global market cap of stocks reporting. Global stocks' value: $110T; US is $50T. World Wealth: $500Trillion~.

April 27 Tuesday: Market Summary:

SPY=: Stocks were flat ahead of Fed day Q&A (watch for Twist, inflation): Weds at 1430ET. Strategist calls grow, for a technical pullback from all time highs.



UST Bonds TLT-1% fell all day (despite a brief bounce on $62B 7-year Note auction at 13ET), led by USDJPY $¥+1% bounce, and very strong Consumer Confidence (122 vs 113 expected, 10ET) & HPI House Price Index +12% YoY (year).


Cyclicals led again: energy XLE+1.3%, financials XLF+0.9%, industrials XLI+0.9%.


Reopen continues: Biden's speech announced no masks needed outside, if vax was done. This lifts travel stocks, such as AirBnb ABNB+3%.


Earnings movers: UPS+10%, TSLA-5% (China worries), MMM-3%, GE-1%, UBS-1%, MMC+4%. Shipping leader MAERSK= flat, despite early earnings bounce.

Ditto BP= . HSBC+5%. CDNS-8%, LLY-3%, PHM+4% lifts homebuilders XHB+1%. Footwear retailer CROX+15% beat (estimates) & raises (guidance); keeps soaring.

After Hours AH earnings leaders now: GOOG+5%, MSFT-3%; AMD+3%, TXN-3%, PINS-10%, V+2%, SBUX-2%, AMGN-3%, SYK-4%, JNPR+3%, FFIV-5%


Techs dominate this peak week of Q1 earnings: Weds AH: AAPL, FB. Thurs AH: AMZN. Risks of "pullthru": previous periods cannibalized this period's results.


GME+5% after placement complete. MVIS-24%: WallStBet meme mania cools.

April 26 Monday: Market Summary:

SPY+0.2% Churn at highs, ahead of big-6-techs' earnings week: TSLA-2% soft AH:


Elon Musk's Tesla Conference Call now, is one of the few, crucial to listen to. They found alternative chip sources, and expect huge Model Y sales growth.


(He also hosts SNL this weekend: a possible sentiment peak around TSLA.)


30year Bonds bounced 1% into and after weak Durable Goods 830ET; sagged on 1130ET UKT 2year auction, but drifted flat on 13ET 5year note auctions.


Powell's "letting inflation run hot" stimulus, fuels supercycle bulls across all commodities (awaiting CPI this Friday): Metals (Copper+2.5% lifts FCX+7%), Energies, Softs (Lumber+3% lifts WY+2% PCH+4%). Fed rate Q&A on Weds 1430ET, is likely to be more dovish like ECB, BoJ (tonite); not hawkish like BoC.


Also boosted, are crypto (COIN+4%, RIOT+6% on BTC+8% bounce), new listings, and new pop meme stocks: MVIS+47%, OCGN+20%; and GME+12%, doubling this AH on stock sale done; AMC+13%). Expect more rotation into Quality and Value: Energy XLE+0.7%, Financials XLF+0.4%, Biotechs XBI+3%


$19T (17%) of MktCap of earnings due this peak week: Earnings movers today: AXP+4%, OTIS+7%; ACI-5% (weak guide drags grocers KR-2%, GO-2% SFM-3%).


Earnings expectations are high. Biden's first 100 days have seen a stronger stock market than any President in generations, including JFK. Supply constraints will hurt: such as shortages of lumber for homebuilding; and carmakers' basic chips.


Infra bill optimistic note, lifts NKLA+7%, NIO+3% CHPT+8%;

CCIV+16% Lucid Motors bounce, on new emission standards;

LAZR+16% Luminar bounce, on Airbus new vehicles partnership


AMZN+2% on hopes of share split on Thurs earnings. SPOT+6% on price raise.


CyberSec: PFPT+31% Proofpoint gets $12B bid from Thoma Bravo, a PE firm.


Pandemic-driven record RV sales lifted CWH+4% WGO+7% THO+3%


SKLZ+16% on ARK talking up their esports games.


OPEN+11% on hiring to improve digital home viewing.

=============


April 23 Friday: Market Summary:

SPY+1.1% ATH buy-any-(tiny)-dip bounce: on New Home Sales surging 20% in March, despite Lumber+4% still soaring on shortages, to deep new all time highs, 5x 2020 lows. Reflation evident in booming base metals and softs.


FCX+5% after yesterday's earnings, and Copper+1.2% still climbing.


Rally was led by value / cyclicals: financials (+1.9%, notably regionals: SIVB+8% beat earnings & raised guidance), materials (+1.7%).

April 22 Thursday: Market Summary:

Dow -1%, Nasdaq QQQ -1.2% : Biden announces higher tax on rich (plan to boost the capital gains rate to 39.6% from 20% for high earners $1m+, to fund his American Family Plan). Semi's SMH -2.3%, ahead of INTC earnings; MU -5%. Volatility (VIX) rose, touching 20. Senate GOP countered Biden's $800B+ infra plan, with only $568B. Lots of negotiations ahead.


Earnings: weakness in DOW Chemical -6%, LRCX (chips) -4%, LVS (casinos) -4%; strength in EFX Equifax credit scoring +15%, AT&T T +4%: yield leader (as dividend income will be more attractive, as capital gains tax rises)


ARKK funds switching out of TSLA -3.3%: on car crash analysis: hints at QQQ pullback.


RIOT -11%, MARA -11%, MSTR -8% melting on Bitcoin weakness: $52k from 65k highs: JPM / institutional bulls' very bearish calls; also selling the fact after last Wed's $100B COINbase listing (now $55B), and Gensler in as SEC head. Cryptos are a useful ultra-tech-risk tell. Bitcoin is now under 1/2 of all crypto value (MktCap). Suggests QQQ weakness too.


Ford F +2% on DB Catalyst call, Wolfe upgrade, despite chip shortage shutdowns.


AAL American Air -4%, despite expected return of 737 Max, with customers unfazed.


ECB left rates unchanged in April monetary policy meeting, QE taper fears eased, softening EUR; after BoC taper plans boosted CAD yesterday. Key EU Flash PMIs are due Fri. AUD was also soft with Copper; GBP weak, on the EU's AZN lawsuit.


ECB & weak stocks helped UST Bonds bounce. Also strong $18B 5Yr TIP auction, after y'day soft 20Yr $20B auction. Oil was choppy / soft, after Iran, Libya supply worries.


Highest ever global virus cases: Mainly from India, which broke the world's highest single-day record of COVID-19 cases: 300k+: double mutation (and others eg Brazil, Tanzania) poses global delayed reopen risk.


Vax hesitancy may grow in Emerging Maeketss, as all 10 vaccines globally, have risks.


China risks: Tech crackdown: BABA, TCEHY; Huarong bad debts; slow/ weak vax; US/EU/JP/AU get tough: JP worried about huge CN hack; AU cancelled Victorian BRI deal: trade war with CN


Japan bounce from larger downturn on virus flareup: Tokyo state of emergency


World Earth Day + Biden's Climate Summit today: boom in green commods (SoyOil, Corn, Sugar); weakness in Live Cattle, on meat substitution. German Green chancellor candidate Baerbock looks to be the most popular.
