Morning Express: March 4, 2020

The Federal Reserve announced an emergency 50-basis point rate cut yesterday morning and after a short-lived spike, equity markets sold off sharply. We believe U.S benchmarks would have finished at session highs if it were not for the Fed’s action, one that exuded fear. The odds of a 50-basis point cut stood at 100% and risk-sentiment was in recovery-mode from last week’s bloodbath as long as a cut was coming.

Intu is now exploring “alternative capital structures and asset disposals”.

When a Lower NAV is a Good Thing

Oftentimes, NAV decline stems from a combination of dealer fear lowering indicated prices and actual buyers who are looking to be opportunistic. The fewer the trades that take place in bonds of higher quality credits (which is not the same as ratings), the more likely that sellers aren’t willing to make a sale, especially when buyers are bidding and trying to be available for motivated sellers that don’t appear.

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.

Morning Express: March 3, 2020

The recovery is underway, or is it? U.S benchmarks muscled another late surge yesterday. The tape has broadly held ground overnight and even poked its head higher. Furthermore, the S&P is out above a key technical level at 3050-3060 which in our mind paves a path of least resistance higher.

Stock futures are firmly higher, looking to add to yesterday’s impressive gains as the Dow Jones Industrial Average scored its biggest one day point gain ever and one-day percentage gain in nearly 11 years on Monday, as stocks bounced back sharply from the previous week’s selloff fueled by expectations that policy makers will move to cushion the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the global economy.
