      CPI Surge Outpaces PPI = Earnings Profits?

      Communications in the most abstract form. I admit. I have a difficult time writing this post. This is because it’s about looking at available inflation data quickly and making an “educated” high-level guess whether companies overall, will be reporting profits during quarterly earnings season. Below is my maiden attempt. Stay the course, with me? Hee hee. Inflation Definition. By definition: CPI - measures the average change over time in the prices paid by urban consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services. PPI - measures the average change over time in the selling prices received by domestic producers for their output. Inflation Reports. US Consumer Price Index (CPI) report for March 2024, was released on Wed, 10 Apr 2024. Headline CPI: was 3.5% vs 3.4% expected vs 3.2% (F

      Best Investments in a Hot CPI Market?

      Quick Recap US “hotter than expected” inflation data out on Wed, 10 Apr 2024 - resulted in a pandemonium in the stock market: Headline CPI: was 3.5% vs 3.4% expected vs 3.2$ (February). Core CPI: was 3.8% vs 3.7% expectations vs 3.8 (February). Fact: 3rd month in a row that inflation reported has been hotter than expected. Assumptions that persistent inflation is “seasonal” should be throw out of the window by now. Panic sell caused the market to lose its footing yet again. When market closed for Wednesday: DJIA: -1.09% (-422.16 to 38,461.51). S&P 500: -0.95% (-49.27 to 5,160.64). Nasdaq: -0.84% (-136.28 to 16,170.36).

      $FFIE : Down and Out, despite Good News!

      $Faraday Future Intelligent Electric Inc.(FFIE)$  It remains a mystery why US market is so negative / bias towards this luxury EV maker that was once touted to be $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$  ’s main rival. All this due to its more than fantastic technical specifications deemed worthy of a luxury sedan.  All these harked back in its heady days where its stock price peaked at $55.35 in January 2021. Before its subsequent, 2 reverse stock split exercises, required to prevent FF from being delisted on the US bourse. Fast forward to 10 Apr 2024, its stock price has fallen by -99.84% to $0.091 per share.&nb

      $NVDA vs US CPI Inflation: Who Wins?

      With US inflation data to be revealed in barely 1 hours’ time, what is the final prediction by Wall Street ? Bets Placed: $Bank of America(BAC)$ , Economists - Stephen Juneau & Michael Gapen: CPI (MoM) - March (0.3%) vs February (0.4%). CPI (YoY) - March (3.4%) vs February (3.2%). Core CPI (YoY) - March (3.7%) vs February (3.8%). Catalyst for headline inflation 3.4% is largely due to “higher” energy costs, fueled by a jump in gas prices, driving up the index. Based off January and February momentu, BAC’s economists are fairly certain that March Core inflation will march to the same tune. Core inflation has remained stubbornly elevated due to “higher” costs of: (see above) Shelter. Core services eg. Insurance and Medical care. If March inf

      TSLA Robotaxis: Musk's BEST Marketing Ploy !

      Downgrade and Next. I refer to my post on $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ being downgraded (click here ! to read) and all the negative presses that it has received in recent days. Apparently, Tesla fans and speculators have thrown caution to the wind and re-embraced the stock as US market sentiments, remained mixed & flatlined on Mon, 08 Apr 2024. All the while waiting for US’s March 2024 inflation data to be released. Monday’s closing: The car maker closed up +4.90% to $172.98 per share. This came about as investors lapped up CEO musk’s latest proclamation that Tesla would debut its long-awaited robotaxi on

      Earnings Save US Market from Inflation Shock?

      Week in review. The last job report - US Non-Farm payroll (NFP) was finally out on Fri, 05 Apr 2024. It took US market’s breath away. (see below) Actual jobs creation (303,000) outpaced market estimates (214,000) by +41.59%. Showcasing US labour market resiliency. Actually, private sector - ADP NFP @184,000, released on Wed, 03 Apr 2024, that also outpaced estimates by +24.32% — had removed the guess-work for Friday’s NFP. Tradeoff: The good economic data could result in the Fed’s delay to trim interest rates. March’s consolation was both (a) Unemployment rate and (b) Average hourly earnings (YoY) were inline with forecasts. Friday - end of trading week. Solid jobs data helped market to regain some of its lost grounds. (see above yellow highlights) This was after Thursday’s decline whe

      TSLA Downgraded again ! Worry Now ?

      $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$   Based on US market history, April is one of the best performing months for equities. Yet this April, Tesla fell by -6.39% to $164.90 per share, after announcing a much weaker than expected Q1 2024 deliveries.  Actually on 24 Jan 2024, Tesla has suffered a price correction after it’s Q4 2023 post earnings conference call. When commenting on 2024 EV growth, Mr musk himself issued the warning “may be notably lower”. With a realized forecast, analysts are now lowering their price targets & expectations — while waiting for Mr musk to pivot out of a "messy quarter."  Who Said What?   (1) Guggenheim Securities, Analyst Ronald Jewsikow: - Recommended - Sell rating. - Re
