    (Please get pleasure from this up to date model of my weekly commentary printed June third, 2022 from the POWR Worth publication).

    In final week’s POWR Worth commentary I shared extra insights that equated to the next likelihood of bear market on the horizon (Learn it right here).

    Since then the preponderance of recent proof can be pointing in that unfavorable route. Which means the “thought virus” of bear market continues to unfold.

    Most notable is the up to date learn of GDP Now from the Atlanta Fed. A pair weeks in the past I used this identical indicator right here as proof of financial energy at +2.5% for Q2.

    That has now slid to solely +1.3% after the newest slate of financial outcomes have been underneath expectations. Directionally that’s dangerous information.

    Sure some will level to ISM Manufacturing on Wednesday rising from 55.4 to 56.1 as a optimistic. Or that Authorities employment immediately confirmed 390K job positive aspects which was larger than anticipated.

    Nonetheless, let’s contemplate that Manufacturing typically activates a dime and a stable one month tells us little about what occurs subsequent. Or the truth that ISM Companies immediately got here in decrease than anticipated at 54.5 from 55.9 final month.

    Plus the providers sector is 4X bigger than manufacturing.

    As for the seemingly good employment numbers…the unhappy fact is that employment is a lagging indicator. Which means it typically does not sign bother to effectively after a recession has began to take root.

    Sort of like a hearth alarm that does not go off til after the constructing has burnt to the bottom.

    Additionally of curiosity, the competing ADP employment report from Thursday was woefully underneath expectations at solely 128K jobs added. That’s the slowest tempo for the reason that onset of Covid.

    Plus traditionally it has been way more correct at displaying jobs traits than the Authorities model.

    Going past financial knowledge is extra proof of the bearish thought virus spreading to extra locations. Here’s a slate of probably the most telling unfavorable headlines proving out that time:

    This is the e-mail Elon Mush despatched to all Tesla staff a couple of 10% head depend discount

    Jamie Dimon (JPMorgan Chase CEO) says “brace your self” for an financial hurricane

    You Have Been Warned

    Sure, I might preserve going and going. And when you doubt it do Google searches for phrases like Bear Market or Job Layoffs and see how a lot comes as much as assist this unfavorable notion.

    Proper now I’d say that odds of recession and bear market is north of fifty%. That additionally implies that it isn’t a performed deal.

    That certainly the Fed might orchestrate a gentle touchdown for the economic system as they elevate charges and that the current nasty correction was sufficient ache earlier than a return to bull market situations.

    Our transfer right down to 69% lengthy in POWR Worth is a nod in that route. That certainly a bear market just isn’t a given and this extra conservative stance provides us a greater balancing act to get extra defensive or aggressive as wanted.

    Which means if a bear market is afoot then probably we’ll promote extra of our aggressive positions and rotate to bigger, decrease beta, conservative positions within the portfolio. Additionally probably cut back whole lengthy publicity to only 50%.

    However, if we keep away from bear market territory and get again on a critical and lasting bull run, then we’ll do the other.

    That will imply getting again to 100% lengthy in additional aggressive positions. That features a larger dose of small caps, development shares and better beta investments.

    Do not forget that economics is a gentle science. Which means it isn’t precise making it laborious to make concrete predictions.

    The identical is clearly true for the inventory market by extension since recessions and bear markets go hand in hand.

    I level this out to assist recognize the step-by-step method we’re utilizing to get roughly bullish in our portfolio.

    That is as a result of it is very harmful to guess incorrect and get trampled by the market going the opposite route. Higher to do extra nuanced strikes as issues unfold.
