The Bottom Line

First quarter results by a wide variety of U.S. companies have been spectacular. Last week, analysts increased their consensus first quarter earnings estimate for S&P 500 companies from a year-over year gain of 24.2% to a gain of 24.9% and boosted consensus estimates for the remainder of the year. Despite results, responses by equity markets were muted. The S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average managed to recover to break-even levels set eight weeks ago. Their short term momentum indicators have returned to overbought levels, but have yet to show signs of peaking.

U.S. equity markets have a history of reaching a seasonal peak at this time of year. The first week in May historically is the week when U.S. equity indices, commodities and sectors change their seasonality from Positive to Neutral/Negative. Subsequently seasonal influences regularly turn Negative in the third week in July and bottom in mid-October. This year, seasonal influences have varied slightly mainly due to unusual strength in the energy sector triggered by non-recurring geopolitical events.

Seasonal influences are particularly relevant in U.S. Mid-term election years. Volatility in equity markets increases from late April to mid-October due to concerns about a possible change in political control in Congress. These concerns are very real this year. Republicans control the House by 16 votes and the Senate by one vote. On average during a Mid-term election year, the controlling party loses 24 House seats to the opposition party. Anticipation of a possible change, regardless of the final result, is a major reason for a correction in North American equity markets between late April and October.

Seasonal influences for a wide variety of equity markets have a history of peaking at this time of year including Chinese, Japanese and most European equity markets.

Seasonal influences for Canadian equity markets follow a similar pattern. They normally peak near the end of May, turn neutral until mid-July and turn negative until mid-October. History is about to repeat. Short and intermediate technical indicators for the Canadian equity market already are overbought, but have yet to show signs of peaking.

Earnings News This Week

clip_image004

 

Observations

Technical action by individual S&P 500 stocks was bulish last week. Number of stocks breaking resistance totaled 58 while number of stocks breaking support totaled 14. Notably, technology and financial stocks were on the list of breakouts and utilities were on the list of breakdowns. The energy sector was by far the strongest sector with a gain o 4%. The Up/Down ratio was up last week to (210/225=) 0.93 from 0.77.

Earnings focus this week is on first quarter results released by U.S. retail merchandisers.

Economic news this week on both sides of the border will focus on retail sales.

Medium term technical indicators in the U.S. (Percent of stocks trading above their 50 day moving average, Bullish Percent Index) showed signs of rolling over last week

Medium term technical indicators in Canada remained in upward trends last week, but are overbought.

Short term technical indicators for U.S. and Canadian equity markets, commodities and most sectors (20 day moving averages, short term momentum) continued to trend up last week. Many are overbought.

Seasonal influences in U.S. equity markets normally turn neutral early in May and negative in mid-July, particularly in mid-term U.S. election years. Seasonal influences in Canadian equity markets frequently remain neutral/positive to early June. Thereafter, they turn negative. See charts below:

The outlook for S&P 500 earnings and sales remains positive: According to FactSet, estimates for 2018 were raised again last week following encouraging results released to date: 91% of companies have reported. 78% beat consensus earnings estimates and 77% beat consensus sales estimates. Another 10 S&P 500 companies and 3 Dow Jones Industrial Average company (Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Cisco) are scheduled to report this week. First quarter 2018 earnings are expected to increase 24.9% (up from 24.2% last week) on an 8.2% increase in sales. Second quarter 2018 earnings are expected to increase 18.8% on an 8.3% increase in sales. Third quarter earnings are expected to increase 20.9% on a 7.1% increase in sales. Fourth quarter earnings are expected to increase 16.5% on a 5.7% increase in sales. For all of 2018, earnings are expected to increase 19.2% on a 7.2% increase in sales.

Short term political uncertainties remain NAFTA negotiations, rising trade war fears (particularly against China), impact of revocation of the Iran nuclear weapons agreement and increased scrutiny by special council on Russia’s influence on the Presidential election. In addition, Mid-term election political rhetoric normally starts to ramp up in May culminating in October.

Earnings and revenue prospects for 2018 are expected to be exceptional for U.S. based companies with international exposure. Earnings will benefit significantly from weakness in the U.S. Dollar on a year-over-year basis when revenues and earnings from international operations are translated into U.S. Dollars. For example, U.S. based company with 50% or more of earnings and revenues from international operations saw first quarter earnings increase by 29.6% (versus 24.9% for all companies and first quarter sales increase by 13.1% (versus an 8.2% for all companies). The U.S. Dollar Index averaged 100 in the fourth quarter of 2016 and 101 in the first quarter of 2017. Strong gains from international operations due to currency translation are anticipated during the next three quarters.

  1. Larry/ON Says:

    May has been one of the best months so far. The whole “Sell In May” idea becomes a recipe for lost opportunity. Tech stocks are ripping higher. The market is not at all overvalued on a P/E basis. Stocks like MSFT are hitting new all time highs. Semi-conductor stocks are on fire. NVDA broke to a new high two days ago and others like MU and AMAT are making outsized gains.

  2. Ron/BC Says:

    The $SPX cleared the well watched 2717 level by a few points Friday and is now bumping up against 2740 which is the Fibonacci 61.8% retracment point of the January to April selloff. 2740 has served as support and resistance within the last few months and needs to be cleared and held to suggest a run to a double top.

    I was wondering if anyone follows Life & Banc Split Corp. Symbol LBS.To ?
    Looking for some insight into this mutual fund company and long term outlook with its dividends
    Thanks

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    For you BAM fans price just broke out above $40.60 important resistance and looks very good technically as long as price can hold this breakout.

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    Re:#4
    I should add that BAM/a.to on the $TSX has not cleared resistance but is in an overall uptrend and has formed a W pattern which is a very bullish pattern when it breaks out. Price has not yet cleared $52.50 resistance and needs to clear this level to expect a run to a double top of $56.

    XEG.to is finally poking its nose above $13. Needs to stay there to expect a rally to a double top. (Not a lot of upside on this even if successful.)

    Ron/BC
    Whats your thoughts on BIP.UN – another Brookfied stock that has not done much for a while?

  8. Vik Says:

    SQ is one that I’ve seen mentioned here lately.
    Here is what I am seeing on the chart: http://schrts.co/HALgHn

    Momentum indicators look to be overbought and bearish divergence maybe forming. SQ is in a nice uptrend so would not mind a pull back. Price spent a lot of time between $46-$51. Pull back to the green uptrend line line would be about $46.

    SQ is higher beta so could easily makes it way back upwards.

    Open to any thoughts! Thanks

    I own shares of LBS, DGS and DGS.PR.A for many Years for Cash Flow.
    They hold mainly Bank and Div. Stocks. MER 0.60%.
    LBS traded as low as $ 3.00 in 2009.
    Distributions on LBS and DGS are 0.10 monthly all ROC.
    Dividends on the Preff. Shares at 5.25%

  10. Vik Says:

    MU is another that I saw mentioned here and one that I have been watching. http://schrts.co/jzBwsS

    Nice chart but wondering if it could pull back? Saw it break out last week but did not act (shoulda,woulda,coulda)…

    Looking for stocks other than oil/metals to trade and tech stocks in US seem to be good ones!

  11. Dave/AB Says:

    Thanks Bobj. On this type of investment is it better to get ROC versus dividends? What is the difference? And What tax bracket of investor would it benefit most? and how is it treated differently? thanks for your answers and advice?

  12. Bernie Says:

    Dave/AB,

    Re: LBS
    The total price return of LBS since inception is -1.27% or -0.13% annually. Ie; you get your own money back in dividends while your capital declines slowly. The dividends aren’t guaranteed either, several have been missed over the years. The holdings are sound. Why not just buy them instead for superior growth and dividends which grow…or…invest the money in a savings account.

  13. Ron/BC Says:

    Roy
    Bip/UN.to is testing major support and is very oversold. For the believers it’s a buy here with a stop below $49. It did break its uptrendline and the lower trend indicators are negative but support is support and the RSI is very oversold. Should be good for a bounce at least as long as $49 holds.

    http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=BIP%2FUN.TO&p=D&yr=2&mn=0&dy=0&id=p15748142917&a=579408490

    Re 10 – Vik – Do all the research you can on MU. Buy as many shares as you can and do not sell them.

  16. Bernie Says:

    Dave/AB,

    Re: Life and Banc Split Corp (LBS)

    In my #12 above I assumed the wrong initiation date. I’m linking two stockcharts of which show the entire daily history of LBS. The first one is price only which assumes you spend the dividends, the second is total return which assumes the dividends are reinvested. I hope this helps.
