This week has been action packed. On Tuesday, we had market heavyweights Apple and Microsoft reporting earnings. Yesterday, we had a FOMC meeting and Chair Jerome Powell’s press conference. Finally, it seems that Senate Republicans, Senate Democrats, and the White House have come to an agreement on an infrastructure package that will get more than 60 votes. Given this flurry of news, it’s only fitting that the S&P 500 (SPY) would close yesterday with a -0.02% loss. So far, this earnings season is also coming in quite strong, although some companies have issued outlooks that were below expectations. In this week’s commentary, we will preview earnings and update our market outlook. Read on below to find out more… Jul 29, 2021| 5:13pm

Last week, we noted some signs that the market could be ready to move lower. Between last Wednesday and Monday’s low, the S&P 500 (SPY) declined by 3.5%. Over the last couple of days, we’ve bounced back and made up the bulk of these losses. As noted in previous commentaries, there’s a tug of war going on between the various bullish and bearish forces in the market. On the bearish side, we have a market with weak breadth, concerns about the Delta variant, and signs that growth may have peaked. On the bullish side, we have low rates, an expanding economy, and expectations of more earnings growth over the next 12 months. So far, this earnings season is also coming in quite strong, although some companies have issued outlooks that were below expectations. In this week’s commentary, we will preview earnings and update our market outlook. Read on below to find out more… Jul 23, 2021| 9:15am

We've had some interesting developments as we enter earnings season. You can kind of see it with the S&P 500 (SPY) if you squint, but it's much clearer with the Russell 2000 which is down 6.5% over the last 3 weeks and 1.5% today. In contrast, the S&P 500 made new highs this AM before reversing lower. This is the market we have - the large-cap indices are levitating higher, while the rest of the market is chopping around in a sideways manner. Based on previous instances of similar behavior, we could see the lagging parts of the market catch a bid, leading to another leg higher, or the large-caps could experience some profit-taking, leading to a deeper pullback. Today's commentary will discuss these scenarios and the recent inflation data. Read on below to find out more… Jul 15, 2021| 12:56pm
