Diary_22Good morning.  Thanks to rising interest rates, the cost to finance a new car is now averaging over $1,000 per month.  Before the pandemic and subsequent inflation, that number was closer to $700 – including insurance.
The hardest hit are the EV space. 3,900 auto dealers report that EVs are stacking up, as the high costs to lease and steady interest in non-EVs are at play.  That suggests that the EV trend may stall out, and that EV stocks could be in for a rough 2024 until the costs to own or lease go down.
Investors and traders have a myriad of opportunities.  Traders can look to short EV makers and companies related specifically to EVs as this trend slows down.  And investors may want to take a closer look at energy companies like the oil players, especially as crude has dropped down from over $90 in the summer to the mid-$70 range today.

I'm late!Good morning.
There’s usually some strong seasonal demand in the job market, even if it’s mostly for part-time retail and fulfillment level work.  So the latest jobs numbers, which show the weakest gains for labor since January 2021 show that the market may be finally coming off of its imbalance in favor of workers.
Add in the myriad of companies announcing thousands of layoffs in the past few months, and it’s possible that the economy is nearing a turning point in the job market.  That’s likely something the Fed wants to see, as a sign that inflation’s drop won’t just be another “transitory” data point.
Traders should be cautious. Any one company making layoffs can be bullish, as it improves profitability.  But when many companies are making layoffs at once, it can spell danger for the economy as a whole.

When Will America’s Soaring Debt Finally Matter?

Nearly every year, debt rises more than the alleged deficit.  This is not a fiscal vs. calendar year distortion, but an ongoing deficit lie.  For example, there were alleged budget surpluses in four consecutive years, 1998 through 2001.  Yet debt only fell… [Read Here]

More Hot AirGood morning.
It’s probably a good time to “retire” the word transitory regarding inflation.  That was testimony by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell before Congress yesterday.  With rising risks of higher inflation for longer, Powell even noted that the Fed could accelerate its timeline to taper its bond-buying program.
While markets didn’t like that particular news, expecting the easy-money spigot to remain open forever, higher inflation levels risk causing more economic uncertainty and for companies to cut back on major projects, which could lead to the poorly-performing economy of the 1970s.  While that may not be the case, ensuring that it won’t be the case will likely mean some short-term pain, and that markets may not continue to rise as strongly as they have over the past 18 months.

Holiday NuisanceGood morning.
Despite yesterday’s pullback in the stock market, November was one of the best months for stocks since 1987.  The one-two punch of the end of election uncertainty and a number of Covid-19 vaccines was enough to allay much fear.
However, there’s still a way to go.  Jobless numbers remain high.  Lockdowns are on the rise in some areas.  A vaccine won’t be widely available for months.  That’s why, despite the reasons for optimism, traders can still find some down days in the market to profit on the short side — or set up for the market’s next move higher.
