Energy Infrastructure Outlook Amid the Coronavirus Outbreak

Concern among market participants over the ongoing outbreak of the COVID-19 virus appears to have spread from simply a short-term reduction in demand for petroleum products within certain Chinese provinces to a broader, though still short-term, impact beyond hydrocarbon consumption.

As Markets Struggle, Where Do Global Economies Go from Here?

We have seen a rapid and dramatic market correction as a result of the news flow around the COVID-19 outbreak. This appears to be an overreaction, in my view — but I would not be surprised to see the sell-off continue as uncertainty remains high on key issues: ease of transmission, length of time a person can be infected and contagious without showing symptoms, mortality rates, and length of time before the infection rate stabilizes globally.

Over the course of less than two weeks, the yield on the 10-year US Treasury fell from over 1.8% to 1.51%, and the yield on the 10-year German bund dropped from -0.22% to -0.44%. This week, I see the potential for continued market volatility, both to the upside and the downside. Here are three key issues I’m watching…

The Future of E-Commerce and Retail Will Be Written in China

We believe China is ground zero for the future of retail and the West will learn from and adapt the experiments that are already moving to scale in the East. Consider Alibaba, the Chinese Internet giant whose wide-ranging businesses span e-commerce, offline retail, fintech, online video, maps and browsers, and artificial intelligence.

2020 Outlook: An Optimistic View of Capital Markets

As we look ahead to 2020, it’s clear that central banks are still shouldering the burden for stimulating the economy via monetary policy. That should bode well for 2020, in our view. However, we believe such monetary easing should be more positively impactful for asset prices than the overall economy. Economic uncertainty is likely to continue to depress capital spending, in our view, and we must watch vigilantly to ensure it doesn’t spill over into diminished hiring plans.

Don’t Fret The Rate Rise: Party Like It’s 1995

Recent market events look a lot like the mid-90s when the Fed stopped tightening and the cycle found new life. To make it simple, I’ll state my conclusion upfront. My outlook for 2020, or at least the first half of 2020, is quite sanguine.

The Fed Gives Stocks Free Rein To Run. Can The Rally Continue?

Last week’s Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting proceeded largely as expected, but a very important development for stocks occurred during the follow-up press conference. As expected, the Fed decided to cut rates by 25 basis points. Additionally, in its announcement, the Fed removed the language that stated it would “act as appropriate to sustain the expansion.”

Should Investors Be Scared Of A Halloween Sell-Off?

After all, some of the biggest stock market crashes have occurred in October, such as the Panic of 1907, the 1929 crash, and the 1987 crash. We even witnessed a significant stock market sell-off last October. However, if we were to look at the overall statistics, we would see that October has not historically been the worst month for stock market performance. In fact, there is even a name for this behavioral finance phenomenon — “the October effect.”

Three Ways Investing Is Like Baseball

Perhaps more than any other sport, baseball is famous for statistical analysis, and there are seemingly endless ways to evaluate every player. Similarly, there are many ways to evaluate stocks, and different portfolio managers assemble their “teams” using a variety of methods. To understand the differences, consider the ways that coaches can choose players for a baseball team.

News Versus Noise: Assessing The Market Impact Of Three Major Headlines

One of the key themes I have been discussing in the last several years is geopolitical disruption — and we got a heavy dose of it last week. However, one of my main points over the past few years is that investors should try to identify the geopolitical disruption that really matters for the economy and markets, and ignore the events that are just background noise (most fall into this category, in my view).

Markets Shake Off A Series Of Unusual Events

Another very surprising but ultimately anticlimactic chain of events occurred over the last week. There was a serious drone strike on Saudi oil facilities over the weekend of Sept. 14 and 15, knocking out two key installations and dramatically curtailing oil production. Not surprisingly, there was a major shock to the price of oil on Monday, Sept. 16, with crude oil rising more than $10 per barrel in price.1

When It Comes To College, Think ‘Savings’ Over ‘Scholarships’

Here’s the reality, parents: While organized sports offer a great way for your child to learn valuable life lessons and develop their skills, they’re far from a scholarship guarantee. To truly set your child up for success, you have to start saving for college as soon as possible — and I believe a 529 plan can help.

Is A Recession Inevitable?

The yield curve has been a constant topic of conversation among investors since mid-August, when the 2-year/10-year Treasury curve briefly inverted and launched furious speculation that a recession may be around the corner. The same holds true among Invesco’s market strategists, who have been debating what an inverted yield curve means and whether a recession is indeed inevitable.
