  • Energiasektor jätkab oma nõrkust. Mitmed sektori ettevõtted on väga tugeva müügisurve alla sattunud ning tehakse viimase aja uusi põhju - XOM, CHK, XTO jne. Musta kulla barreli hinna lahtris vilgub punasel taustal number $119.9. Langevad energiahinnad annavad Föderaalreservile võimaluse teatud kergendusega tänasel intressimäära kohtumisel hingata, toetavad aktsiaturgu tervikuna ning tarbijaid nii Ameerikas, Euroopas kui ka Eestis. Tanklates on kindlasti ees ootamas hinnalangused.

    USAs on allapoole liikumine juba alguse saanud. Väike graafik ka siia juurde:

     

  • Citi alandas eile pärast turgu Fortress Investment Group’i (FIG) reitingu Sell peale hinnasihiga $9:

    We see cracks in the Fortress...While we view Fortress as a firm that can benefit during times of distress, the reality is that the firm does not have a track record spanning multiple cycles.

    Kuigi Fortress ei avalda oma fondide tootlust igakuiselt, siis Citi kalkulatsioonidele tuginedes on olukord märgatavalt halvenenud. See aga tähendab firmale väiksemaid edukustasusid ja ühtlasi madalamat kasumit. Uued kasumprognoosid – EPS 08/09/10 vastavalt $0.50, €0.95 ja $1.35 – jäävad konsensusele alla 15-30% võrra.

    Viimase kolme kvartali jooksul makstud dividend on ületanud kasumit 1.5 korda, mis ei ole jätkusuutlik. Seda enam, et Fortress hiljuti suurendas oma võlakoormust 50% ehk $265 mln võrra.

    Citi ettevaatlik lähenemine alternatiivsete varahaldusfirmade suhtes (private equity, hedge funds) ühtib ka eelmise aasta lõpus Pro all kirjutatud negatiivse nägemusega konkurendi Och-Ziff Capital Management (OZM) suhtes.  

     

  • Ei tahaks tänast pidu Euroopas ära rikkuda. Siiski päris huvitav makroinf Reutersilt: 

    London August 5. A German paper, Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported a leaked figure for the Q2 German GDP which according to a source fell by a sharp 1.0% qoq in Q2. In Q1 the German economy grew more strongly than expected at 1.5% qoq due to a mild winter that supported activity in the construction sector. After that performance a correction was largely expected in Q2. However, the leaked figure is quite weak still and it does mean that the average quarterly growth for Germany in the first part of this year will be somewhere around 0.25% qoq.

    Further, considering the German economy makes up for a large chunk of the euro area economy if this figure is true it will likely drag euro zone growth into negative territory for Q2. Meanwhile, the German government on Monday, reiterated it expects the economy to grow by 1.7% this year and by 1.2% in 2009. The official figures are due to be released by the statistical office on August 14 at 06:00 GMT. 

  • Euroopa jaemüük on samuti kokku kuivamas. Juunis on jamüük vähenenud 0.6% võrreldes maiga. See annab märku, et tarbimine ei aita ilmselt üldse eurotsooni teise kvartali SKP kasvule kaasa.

    Sel kuul vähenes eelkõige non-food tarbimine (-0.6%). Toiduainete müük vähenes 0.4%, kuid aastaga on toidu-, jookide- & tubakamüük langenud -4.4%.

  • Täna siis kell 21.15 kuuleme USA Föderaalreservi intressimäära otsusest. Konsensus on selgelt intressimäärade samaks jätmise poolt. Seetõttu otsitakse tuleviku sõnastusest just vihjeid, kas selle aasta jooksul hakatakse juba ka määrade kergitamist ette võtma või mitte.

  • Don't Be Fooled By Today's Action

    What a mess of a market today. We have some pockets of absolute carnage in oil, gas, steel and various commodity-related and cyclical industries, but the DJIA managed only minor losses. With oil down, we had a few brave folks willing to buy retailers, and there was some money looking for safety in pharmaceuticals, but the selling elsewhere looked like something you expect to see only with the DJIA down 300-400 points or more.

    My major complaint about the market for a while now has been that there is no upside leadership. Yes, we have a few medical and biotechnology stocks doing well and some "defensive" type plays showing relative strength, but otherwise there is absolutely nothing out there showing signs that it can lead us onward and upward. A few of the perma-bulls are hoping that maybe financials would keep on going after a huge oversold bounce, but that seems quite questionable, if not downright naive, given the growing view that there are many more shoes to drop in the sector.

    It was a much worse day out there today than indicated by the major market indices. Many major stocks in the oil and commodity-related sectors had absolutely no support and were down 10% or more. There were some pockets of real fear out there and, unfortunately, that has a tendency to spread rather than drive buyers to buy other sectors.

    It's a mess out there right now, and there is no reason to believe that it is going to quickly improve. Stay defensive and be patient. Better days will come, but it's going to take some time.

  • Väike Briefingu arvamus siia tänasest 21.15 avalikustatavast Fedi sõnumist:

    The Federal Open Market Committee meeting will be held today with a decision due out at about 14:15ET. The surprise factor ahead of the meeting is high. As of this posting, the fed funds futures market shows an implied probability of 93% that the FOMC will hold the fed funds rate steady at 2.00%. Accordingly, a decision to move the fed funds rate up, or down, would be a huge surprise that would prompt an outsized response. The market's handicapping of this FOMC meeting, however, is correct in our estimation. With inflation pressures evident but the economy and financial markets still unsettled, the FOMC isn't going to make a move at this juncture. The expected inaction doesn't mean the market won't be interested in the meeting's outcome. On the contrary, interest will be as high as ever because of the uncertainty surrounding the wording of the policy directive...

    Release Date: August 5, 2008
    For immediate release

    The Federal Open Market Committee decided today to keep its target for the federal funds rate at 2 percent.

    Economic activity expanded in the second quarter, partly reflecting growth in consumer spending and exports. However, labor markets have softened further and financial markets remain under considerable stress. Tight credit conditions, the ongoing housing contraction, and elevated energy prices are likely to weigh on economic growth over the next few quarters. Over time, the substantial easing of monetary policy, combined with ongoing measures to foster market liquidity, should help to promote moderate economic growth.

    Inflation has been high, spurred by the earlier increases in the prices of energy and some other commodities, and some indicators of inflation expectations have been elevated. The Committee expects inflation to moderate later this year and next year, but the inflation outlook remains highly uncertain.

    Although downside risks to growth remain, the upside risks to inflation are also of significant concern to the Committee. The Committee will continue to monitor economic and financial developments and will act as needed to promote sustainable economic growth and price stability.

    Voting for the FOMC monetary policy action were: Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman; Timothy F. Geithner, Vice Chairman; Elizabeth A. Duke; Donald L. Kohn; Randall S. Kroszner; Frederic S. Mishkin; Sandra Pianalto; Charles I. Plosser; Gary H. Stern; and Kevin M. Warsh. Voting against was Richard W. Fisher, who preferred an increase in the target for the federal funds rate at this meeting.

    'Although downside risks to growth remain, the upside risks to inflation are also of significant concern to the Committee.'

    Ehk et siis ollakse ikkagi valmis intresse tõstma (eventually). Aga kui me siin mingit spike'i energias, toiduainetes, materjalides ei näe, siis enne novembrikuu presidendivalimisi veel mitte.
  • Kuid... see oleks ju tähendanud intressifutuuride põhjal tulevaste intressitõstmiste tõenöosuse suurenemist. Seekord aga tõenäosus vähenes. Statement on dovish. Mingi info andis selleks aluse. Mul on oma idee.
  • Cisco (CSCO) tulemused täitsa kenad ja aktsia viskav järelturul veel 3% lisa tänasele liikumisele.

    Reports Q4 (Jul) earnings of $0.40 per share, excluding non-recurring items, $0.01 better than the First Call consensus of $0.39; revenues rose 9.9% year/year to $10.36 bln vs the $10.31 bln consensus. "Cisco delivered solid quarterly and annual results as network-enabled business process changes and productivity increases gain traction on a global basis. Today's strong results demonstrate the company's ability to execute. The market is clearly in transition, and we will use this time as an opportunity to expand our share of customer spend and to aggressively move into market adjacencies. Our focus is on our portfolio approach to technology innovation, a broad global footprint, and management dedicated to sustainable differentiation and execution. We believe we are entering the next phase of the Internet as growth and productivity will center on collaboration enabled by networked Web 2.0 technologies."

    Otsuse kohal hõljus paras event-risk lausa kolmehäälsest erimeelsusest (mis on haruldus mida pole nähtud alates 1992 aastast saati).
    * Plosser - juba tuttav hawk. Ka varem vastu hääletanud.
    * Fisher - juba tuttav hawk. Ka varem vastu hääletanud.
    # Gary Stern - hiljuti teinud paraja retoorikanihke ja väljedanud teravamalt muret inflatsiooni üle. Oli piisavalt alust arvata, et Stern võib seekord vastu hääletada näidates sellega FEDi vabaturukomitee äärmiselt suurt ebakindlust inflatsiooniväljavaate osas. Valik hiljutisi headline:
    Credit crunch in the US likely to last 'many months' - 28 jul. Eriti hea: "Headline inflation is rapid, too rapid,"
    Fed's Stern: Inflation a concern, growth headwinds rising - 28 jul
    Fed's Stern says don't wait to raise interest rates - 20 jul
    TREASURIES-Bonds hit lows after Fed Stern's rate comments - 18 jul
    Fed's Stern supports early rate hikes: Bloomberg - 18 jul

    # Elizabeth Duke - äärmiselt väike risk, et oleks vastu häletanud. Kuid täna esimest korda hääletamas, vahetab välja hr Mishkini kes läheb tagasi tööle ülikooli.
