Trick or Treat2Good morning.
While gas prices are well off their peak from earlier in the year, a number of factors are in store to create a nasty surprise next year.  The first is the latest production cut from OPEC+ members, which will reduce global oil production by millions of barrels per day.
Adding in the current sales from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) in the United States, and the US is on track to have its lowest stockpile of oil for emergencies since 1983.  And prices could move higher once those sales are over – which are expected right after next month’s midterm elections.
Energy prices have a huge impact on transportation and production costs throughout the economy.  So as long as those prices are structurally set to stay high, expect slower growth and more volatile markets.

Holidays_15Good morning.
The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away.
Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been some of the biggest drivers of returns for stocks engaging in them in prior years.  Now’s the time to look at companies with some of the largest share buybacks out there, and to get in ahead of the seasonal buyback window, which should allow shares to rally from here into the end of the year.

Who Ass Are We Covering?Good morning.
Even though interest rates are at zero percent, the stock market still wants to see more stimulus — and soon.  After negotiations broke down on Monday for putting more money into the hands of Americans, stocks slid to lows of the day.
Add in the upcoming election as well as the ongoing earnings season, and it’s easy to see why the market is likely to be in for a volatile few weeks.  While many investors may not like volatility, it tends to be where traders get better returns.
