Market rally may be fleeting, Wolfe Research says

Wolfe Research strategist Rob Ginsberg noted that the early November rally could soon stall out, if the trading action from earlier in the year is any indication.

“Each rally since the July peak has stalled out before making a fresh 1-month high, before rolling over to a new 1-month low…the definition of a downtrend,” Ginsberg said.

To be sure, he also noted that some momentum indicators “inflected positive for all of the indices (last week), and today we see it being confirmed at the stock level.”

Home values are due to drop in 2024, according to Meredith Whitney

Homebuyers should be due some relief in the next year, Meredith Whitney said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” on Tuesday morning.

The founder of the Meredith Whitney Advisory Group believes that affordability issues will begin to arise as older populations downsize their homes. This should particularly challenge states that skew towards older demographics and therefore have lower job creation, which include Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois.

“So unless they lower their home prices, they’re not going to get activity … And with higher rates, home value is worth less,” the analyst said. “So I think the next year is going to be a multi-year phenomenon — you’re going to see a leg down in housing.”

As bid-ask spreads contract and home prices weaken, Whitney predicts that activity in home sales will finally pick up.

U.S. crude falls below $78 a barrel to lowest level since July

U.S. crude prices have fallen nearly 4% to their lowest level since July, as weak economic data overshadows concerns that the Israel-Hamas war could erupt into a broader regional conflict.

West Texas Intermediate was down $3.09, or 3.82%, at $77.73 a barrel, while Brent fell $3.19, or 3.75%, to $81.99 a barrel, both at their lowest prices since July.

The drop came after China’s exports fell more than expected in October, indicating softening global demand.

S&P 500 returns weaker in 12 months before the election, says Goldman

The 2024 U.S. presidential election is now only 12 months away, with the primary season set to begin on Jan. 15. While every election year brings with it a unique mix of political and macroeconomic conditions, Goldman Sachs’ portfolio strategy research team says that equity returns tend to be weaker than average in the 12 months leading up to a presidential election. 

Since 1984, the average S&P 500 return on election years is only 4%, according to Goldman. When looking more broadly from 1932, the S&P 500 has averaged returns of 7% during an election year and 9% outside of election years. 

“Defensive sectors have performed best, perhaps reflecting the elevated uncertainty that typically characterizes the run-up to presidential elections,” said Kostin.

Nasdaq 100’s win streak is a positive sign, history shows

History says the Nasdaq 100‘s winning streak can keep going from here, according to Bespoke Investment Group.

The tech-heavy index is on track for its eight straight winning session. This would mark the 21st time that the Invesco QQQ Trust, which tracks the index, has had a streak that long, according to Bespoke. Prior times show that the top may not have been reached yet.

“The ETF has actually extended the winning streak to nine 60% of the time, including the last four times it has happened dating back to mid-2017,” the note said.

And in 14 of the prior 20 occurrences, the QQQ was higher three months after the 8-day period, as well.

Hedge funds bought equities last week, Bank of America says

Big investors were jumping into stocks during last week’s rally, according to Bank of America.

Strategist Jill Carey Hall said in a note to clients Tuesday that large investment funds were the main source of equity buying last week.

“Hedge fund (largest inflow since June) and institutional clients were net buyers, while retail clients were net sellers for the first time since Sept,” the note said.

The buying largely came in the form of ETFs, as single stocks actually saw outflows among Bank of America clients, according to the note. Consumer discretionary was the most popular sector for buying.

Oil prices hit lowest level since late August on softening demand

Oil prices have dropped to the lowest level in more than two months after China reported a faster than expected drop in its exports, highlighting softening of global demand.

Brent crude futures fell $2.52, or 2.96%, to $82.66 a barrel, while West Texas Intermediate dropped $2.43, or 3.01%, to $78.39.

China’s exports fell 6.4% in U.S. dollar terms in October compared to the same period last year, worse than the 3.3% drop forecast by Reuters.

Softening demand has offset oil output cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia. Riyadh and Moscow confirmed Sunday that they plan to maintain those cuts through at least the end of the year.

Fed’s Goolsbee says ‘golden path’ is still possible

Chicago Federal Reserve President Austan Goolsbee said Tuesday a soft landing is still on the table as the central bank seeks to combat inflation without hurting the economy significantly.

“Because of some of the strangeness of this moment, there is the possibility of the golden path … that we got inflation down without a recession,” Goolsbee said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

 Goolsbee said the drop in price pressures might equal the fastest decline in inflation in the last century.
