ABS Report (Premium Edition) – Oct. 12th 2020

The craziness continues in DC as Negotiations in Washington over the size and composition of another stimulus package will remain a focus this week. It has been on-again, off-again between the GOP and Democrats in regard to a new stimulus bill, and anything seems possible given the strong incentive to posture ahead of the November 3 elections.

In Europe and the UK, surging new virus cases and the plethora of new restrictions threaten the recovery and have the ECB and BoE contemplating additional accommodation. Meanwhile, the Brexit endgame nears and this week’s summit should find both sides posturing, while slowly inching toward a deal. Asia’s thin docket features trade, CPI and PPI from China.

Despite all the machinations in Washington, and increasing worries over spike in virus case and renewed shutdowns in Europe, global stocks finished higher on the week. In fact, even with all the wrangling over the stimulus package, Wall Street had its best performance in over three months as investors kept the faith that something will eventually come to pass in terms of more spending. The markets were whipsawed early in the week as President Trump put the kybosh on talks, only to have optimism for a standalone deal shattered by Speaker Pelosi who reversed her apparent support for airline and small business relief.

But investors remained positive over stimulus and were rewarded on Friday by reports the White House had offered a $1.8 tln package (according to people familiar with the deal). In comments on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show he said “I would like to see a bigger stimulus package than frankly either the Democrats of Republicans are offering…I’d like to see money going to people.”

Wall Street ended the week in the green with the NASDAQ 4.56% firmer, the S&P 500 up 3.84%, and the Dow 3.27% higher. Core European bourses finished with gains of 1.94% to 2.85%, while the Nikkei rallied 2.56%, and China’s Shanghai rose 1.68%.

The U.S. Treasury market is closed Monday for Columbus Day, though Wall Street is open. It’s an important week of data, however, and includes several key reports that should reveal further encouraging news on the recovery. The strength seen so far in July and August data suggest about a 33% rebound in Q3 GDP. As for this week’s releases there’s retail sales, industrial production, regional manufacturing PMIs, consumer sentiment, and CPI. We expect September increases of 0.9% for headline retail sales (Friday) and 0.6% for the ex-auto figure, following respective August gains of 0.6% and 0.7%. Another month of strong vehicle sales should support, along with a continued rebound for sales of clothing, furniture, electronics, and appliances. There will also be fresh information on the manufacturing sector.

Industrial production (Friday) is projected to rise 0.9% in September, following the 0.4% August increase. Meanwhile, the October Empire State index (Thursday) is assumed to ease to 16.0 from 17.0 in September, having bounced from the all-time low of -78.2 in April. The Philly Fed index (Thursday) is seen rising to 16.0 in October from 15.0 in September and is off the -56.6 level in April, the second lowest on record. The preliminary Michigan sentiment report (Friday) for October will provide the latest insight into the mindset of the consumer — the index is expected to climb to 82.0 from the 6-month high of 80.4 in September, and 74.1 in August. Also of interest are initial jobless claims (Thursday) for the week of October 10, which should remain elevated although we assume a -15k decline in the weekly pace to 825k after a -9k drop to 840k in the first week of October.

Inflation reports are expected to show a subdued price backdrop in September. We expect 0.2% September gains for both the CPI headline and core (Tuesday), following 0.4% gains for both in August. We expect 0.1% September PPI (Wednesday) gains for both the headline and the core. Import prices (Thursday) are estimated to rise 0.3% in September, alongside a 0.4% export price rise, after August gains of 0.9% imports and 0.5% for exports.

The Q3 earnings season begins this week, leaving a busy slate of results from large cap firms: Monday is empty. Tuesday brings J&J, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Blackrock, Fastenal, Delta Airlines, and First Republic Bank. Wednesday has UnitedHealth Group, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Infosys, U.S. Bancorp, Progressive, PNC Financial, Wipro, and United Airlines. On Thursday, Honeywell, Morgan Stanley, Truist Financial, Ericsson, Walgreens Boots, and Dover are due. Friday has HDFC Bank, Bank of New York Mellon, V.F. Corp., Schlumberger, State Street, Kansas City Southern, NVR, J.B. Hunt, and Citizens Financial.

There’s another heavy dose of Fedspeak. They’ve all expressed support for the new framework, though there have been some differences with respect to the degree of concerns over the economy and the recovery. Attention will be on comments from VC Clarida (Wednesday) who will speak on the economic outlook and from VC Quarles who will discuss financial stability (Wednesday) and the response to COVID-19 (Thursday). Also on the calendar are Barkin, Daly, Kaplan, Bostic, Kashkari, and Williams.

Canada’s schedule of data is on the thin side in this holiday truncated week with markets closed Monday for Thanksgiving Day. Manufacturing shipments (Friday) are seen falling -1.0% in August after the 7.0% bounce in July. Also of interest will be September existing home sales, which are expected Thursday and should show continued strength. Canada’s housing market has shot higher following a sharp drop in activity during March and April, led by low mortgage rates and lofty demand for single family dwellings amid the shift to working from home. Governor Macklem, speaking last week, said the Bank is on alert for signs of a bubble: “We will also watch for signs that housing markets are being driven higher by speculation that prices will keep rising.” And if households start to become “dangerously overextended, policy makers have several macroprudential tools they can use.” So while rates are not moving higher anytime soon, the Bank will take steps to keeps a bubble from forming in the housing market. Canada’s markets are closed Monday for the Thanksgiving holiday. BoC Deputy Governor Lane (Thursday) takes part in a panel discussion.


This week’s regional calendar is relatively light, though it does feature China September trade, CPI and PPI. Japan reveals September PPI. India has August industrial production, CPI, WPI and trade figures. Elsewhere, production, growth and trade data dot the calendar. For central banks, Bank Indonesia meets and is expected to keep its 7-day reverse repo steady at 4.00%.

China has returned from its Golden Week holidays with a couple of important indicators slated. The September trade report (Tuesday) should see the surplus rise to $60.0 bln from $58.9 bln. It was at $20.1 bln in March and $45.2 bln in April. Exports have been recovering and were up 9.5% y/y in August from the pandemic weakness in the spring, though y/y imports have declined in the prior two months. September CPI and PPI (Thursday) are penciled in slowing to a 2.0% y/y rate from 2.4% for the former, and rising to -1.7% y/y from -2.0% for the latter. In Japan, August core machinery orders (Monday) are seen falling -2.0% m/m after rising 6.3% in July. September PPI (Monday) is forecast sliding to a -0.6% y/y clip from -0.5%. Revised August industrial production is due Wednesday, with the August tertiary industry index (Thursday) should bounce 1.5% after July’s -0.5% slip.

India’s September CPI (Monday) should tick up to 6.8% y/y from 6.7%, while August industrial production (Monday) is expected to post a -8.0% y/y rate from -10.4%. September WPI (Wednesday) likely rose to 1.0% y/y from 0.2%. The September trade deficit (Thursday) is seen narrowing to $5.0 bln from $6.8 bln. Malaysia August industrial production (Monday) is estimated to have slowed to 0.5% y/y from 1.2%. Indonesia’s Bank Indonesia meets (Tuesday) and should hold its 4.00% 7-day reverse repo steady at 4.00%. The September trade report (Thursday) should see the surplus narrow to $2.0 bln from $2.3 bln. Singapore‘s advance Q3 GDP (Wednesday) is penciled in contracting at a -6.0% y/y rate, less than half of the -13.2% in Q2. September non-oil exports (Friday) are forecast to have risen 14.0% y/y from 7.7% previously.

Australia’s docket features a speech from RBA Governor Lowe. The bank’s Tony Richards, Head of Payments Policy, speaks at a Cyrptocurrency and Fin Tech conference. Employment (Thursday) is expected to fall -50.0k in September after rising 111.0k in August. The unemployment rate is projected to rise to 7.0% versus 6.8% in August. New Zealand’s calendar is empty of top tier data this week. CPI for Q3 is due next week. Last week, the RBNZ indicated it’s actively working on a negative rate stance. The next meeting is on November 11.


Eurozone: the ECB clearly is starting to lay the ground not just for a change in the official inflation target, away from the “close to, but below” to a fixed 2%, but also an extension of the PEPP program. Officials are increasingly concerned that the ongoing rise in Covid-19 numbers and the resulting tightening of restrictions will disrupt the still fragile recovery and against that background even ECB President Lagarde is fretting about the risk of “cliff-edge” scenarios. PEPP, which suspends the need to distribute purchases according to the central bank’s capital key for its duration, has been underpinning peripheral bond markets in particular, with even Italian bonds trading as though this wasn’t a country with deep structural problems and a huge debt burden.

Withdrawing that support without creating tensions will always be a difficult task as Italy’s underlying problems won’t go away with the end of the pandemic. Keeping this kind of stimulus in place for too long, however, risks not just reducing any incentive to implement the structural reforms needed to create more sustainable growth that would foster a reduction in debt in the long term, but also keeping companies alive that without support will struggle to survive. At the same time, political pressure on the ECB will increase with the reliance on bond purchases.

ECB moves aside, the October 15 Brexit summit is looming at the end of the week, although while that initially was taunted as a deadline, it is now likely to be little more than a chance to take stock of the state of talks and decide whether there are landing-zones in sight that would allow the start of “tunnel talks”. We see both sides slowly inching towards a deal even if there will be a lot of posturing ahead of and after the summit. Still, the final agreement is likely to be narrower in scope than hoped and will still cause disruptions on both sides of the channel.

The highlight of this week’s data calendar is ZEW Economic Sentiment (Tuesday), where we expect a correction in the expectations reading 75.0 (median 74.0) from 77.4 in the previous month. There are risks to either side as much will depend on when answers came against the background of virus developments, Brexit talks and ECB comments, which have reflected a gradual shift just over the past week. Data are showing signs of weakness, but with markets continuing to focus on the prospect for further stimulus, the prospect of additional easing should keep investor confidence underpinned.

The rest of the calendar is mainly focused on final inflation data for September, which are widely expected to confirm preliminary readings, which would leave the German HICP rate (Tuesday) at -0.4% y/y and the Eurozone Consumer Price Index (Friday) at -0.3% y/y. Negative headline numbers are mainly the result of the temporary cut in the German VAT rate and energy prices, which are still far below last year’s levels. Nevertheless, against the risk that virus developments will hit demand again and that inflation expectations will start to shift lower lastingly, officials are starting to fret about the risk of real deflation down the line, so the numbers will add to the arguments of the doves at the ECB.

Events include ECB’s Lane and Villeroy on Wednesday. Italy sells bonds on Tuesday, Germany auctions 2050 bonds on Wednesday and Spain and France hit markets on Thursday.

U.K.: surging new Covid cases in the UK, the associated plethora of new restrictions, the Brexit endgame, and dovish BoE signaling, will remain dominant themes in the UK. August production and monthly GDP data disappointed. Month-on-month GDP rose 2.1%, down on the median forecast for 4.7% and moderating from July’s 6.4% expansion. This marked the fourth consecutive monthly increase, though the monthly GDP index remains 9.2% down on the pre-lockdown level seen in February. The outlook isn’t good given the surge in new Covid cases, both in the UK and in Europe. New restrictions, from travel limitations to pub closures to local lockdowns, are being introduced almost daily in the UK, and this will have a negative impact on economic activity. In this context, BoE Governor Bailey said that the central bank will use monetary policy “actively and aggressively” if needed, increasing the odds that the central bank will go negative on interest rates (the repo rate is presently at 0.10%).

As for Brexit, this week should bring decisive news on whether the EU and UK will be able to compromise sufficiently to allow for a future relationship deal to be made, with the start of the EU’s summit on Thursday (October 15) being marked as the effective deadline to allow time for the ratification process (in the event of a deal).

Despite the public brinkmanship and some confusing headlines, there have been reports from behind the scenes of motion toward finding a compromise on key issues from both UK and EU sources. Any news of a deal would likely boost sterling over the near term. But, even with a deal, and even with UK progress in signing continuity agreements with non-EU trading partners, the UK will see its terms of trade position deteriorate. It has also become increasingly clear that London’s European dominance in financial services will be eroded, deal or not.

Even with a tariff free, quota free deal, the loss of unfettered access to the single market and customs union will lead to a degree of trade destruction. Analysis by Oxford Economics and Baker McKenzie concluded that UK exporters will face cost-increasing non-tariff barriers, such as customs formalities and regulatory barriers. The same will be the case for EU exporters to the UK, though the impact will be much magnified on the UK side of the Channel. Productivity will also be impacted, given reduced competition and reduced scope for businesses to benefit from economies of scale. This will be accompanied by less investment. The government will of course work to offset these impacts with new global deals, and it has already signed many continuity agreements to cover for the loss of access to the EU’s free trade agreements, but the fact is the UK is set to be jolted into worse trading terms with or without a deal.

Financial services — the UK’s golden goose that accounts for 22% of government tax receipts — is a particular concern. A Bloomberg article last week highlighted the steady stream of financial services resources that are being moved out of the UK to the Eurozone, and the fact that even with a EU trade deal in place, London will likely continue to lose business to Eurozone financial centres as the “equivalence” regime on rules would leave firms with long-term uncertainty. As the Bloomberg piece pointed out, Brussels would be able to unilaterally decide if the UK’s rules are to its satisfaction, while European nations are bent on drawing business away from London over the long term.

As for the pound, which is the principal conduit of market expression with regard to Brexit, while some may argue that bad news has been “priced in”, the mechanism for a bear trend will materialize as trade and investment falls, with the consequence of net outflows of both non-speculative and speculative capital and increased pressure on the BoE to go negative with interest rates.

The UK data calendar this week is relatively quiet, highlighted by monthly labour market data (Tuesday), but this will be overshadowed by Brexit.

Switzerland: The Swiss data calendar is quiet, featuring PPI (Thursday). The Swiss franc has been continuing to trend steadily, consistently rebounding from bouts of weakness. This has seen EUR-CHF repeatedly ebbing back from brief forays above 1.0800. This reflects the chronic proclivity for the Swiss currency to rise in nominal terms, at the influence of incoming interest and other domestically owned investment receipts from assets held abroad, alongside the trade surplus. A higher franc drives down inflation, which to a degree offsets any loss in export competitiveness that a nominally firmer currency might otherwise entail, as there is a high import component in Swiss exports, which in turn helps perpetuate the trend. The SNB, however, remains committed to capping the gains in the franc. At its quarterly monetary policy review last month, it stated that the franc remains “highly valued” and said it is ready to “intervene more strongly in the foreign exchange market.

AlphaBetaStock’s team is constantly looking for opportunities to invest in income or growth stocks. Our current list of stocks we are watching and their current trend is listed below. Please note, that a bullish trend does not necessarily mean buy nor does a bear trend mean sell because the financial advisor or investor’s strategy may overrule it. Actually, in some cases, we purchase stocks that are dipping or in a short term bear trend.
