China Inflation – Non-News News

China Inflation – Non-News News

The Chinese CPI is not an apples-to-apples measure relative to the CPI (consumer price index) that is reported here in the US. Some are attributing the overnight leg-down in the S&P futures (down another 24 or 2.25% at 11:00pm) to the fact that Chinese inflation came in at 6.5% when the consensus was 6.4%. Crackerjack says: “bullocks”. This is just some more good old fashion market panic in our opinion. Chinese food inflation came in at +14.8%. Certainly high, but food inflation is much more volatile and both weather, crop, and commodity price dependent (notice how all commodities except for gold have been collapsing the past few days). Chinese inflation ex-food is running up 2.9%. Not too much different than inflation in the US, nor should it be with...

“Recession Trade” – Clear by Investor Actions Today

                 The immediate observation for those watching this macabre sell-off is that stocks are pretty much being sold off based upon how they would be expected to hold-up in a recession, that will presumably be starting within the next 6-months or so. Any stocks that have a very high valuation, are particularly leveraged, are pro-cyclical or are discretionary look out! Stocks in these categories are down indiscriminately, regardless of near-term or current business trends. The market is being forward looking and pricing in a much higher probability of a recession on the horizon. There is no way to prove or dis-prove the recession prediction until more time goes by. Some stocks of note at 3:00PM: Goldman Sachs (GS) – (down 9%) Coach (COH) – (down 11%) Sears (SHLD) –...

Market Fears of a Recession in 2012

Market Fears of a Recession in 2012

Well, the market clearly isn’t looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Italian 10-YR bonds have surged, rallying 80 basis points (from a 6.09% yield on Friday to 5.29% yield today). Spanish 10-YR bonds have also surged, rallying 88 basis points (from a 6.03% yield on Friday to a 5.14% yield today). While we think this was the more important event over the weekend into Monday morning. The market is clearly on edge regarding the unintended consequence of the Standard & Poor’s sovereign debt downgrade. Standard & Poor’s also downgraded both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac based on their reliance on the US Government. A number of insurance companies and municipal bond issues will also be downgraded. We hold the view that if the US sovereign...

US Sovereign Debt Downgrade

US Sovereign Debt Downgrade

The actual downgrade of the US Sovereign credit rating is sure to cause continued jitters in the financial markets on Monday morning. In actuality, there may be net-positive developments this weekend as it now appears clear that the ECB will engage in buying the debt of Italy and Spain. Drawing a “line-in-the-sand” for Italy and Spain is one of the key elements of halting a financial crisis redux in its tracks. The Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the US Sovereign credit rating looks to be timed to create maximum stir and hints at some political motivations. The actuality is that this downgrade was firmly signaled on July 14th when the US was put on credit watch. Standard & Poor’s was looking for $4T in spending cuts to be announced...

Chitaly – China to purchase Italian Sovereign Debt?

Crackerjack continues to hold the view, that what has transpired in the markets is a crisis of confidence relative to an actual crisis. There is a very big and important difference. During the real-deal 2008-2009 economic crisis you had actual insolvent institutions as the value of mortgage securities declined when the US housing market imploded. The sovereign debt crisis in Europe is also a real crisis as it relates to Greece, Portugal, and Ireland (these countries can never pay back what they borrowed) but we have been stressing that these economies aren’t big enough to tip the world into a global recession. While Spain and Italy have numerous longer-term structural issues which need to be addressed, it appears to Crackerjack, that both Spain and Italy as nations have ample...

Pressure on ECB to be decisive Friday morning

It goes without saying, that the DOW dropping 500 points, and the S&P 500 losing close to 5% will put in enormous pressure on Europe tomorrow morning. We will be watching Spanish and Italian bond yields and European stock markets very closely in the wee hours of the morning.   The Non-farm payrolls report is a side-show with the real issue near-term being “how to avoid a crisis”

Fears of a Crisis Grow

Fears of a Crisis Grow Interesting market reactions this morning. While many market participants are clearly being terrorized by fears of a crisis of confidence (and this is always a risk) there look to be some genuinely better pieces of information that are not being focused on during the scare. Crackerjack’s take on why the markets are selling off – is that it appears that rhetoric from the ECB will be challenged. As we discussed yesterday – the ECB needs to talk big to instill confidence that bond markets in Spain and Italy are not on the cusp of spiraling out of control. Jean-Claude Trichet, the ECB President, mentioned the ability to buy bonds (even today). At first this caused a rally, but the rally in Italian 10-YR yields...

Europe’s Debt Crisis – Impact on Markets

Click Here for Formatted Europe PDF “I think we need a bigger boat!” The words of Martin Brody, played by the late Roy Scheider, ring true today with regard to Europe’s spluttering attempt to avoid a sovereign debt crisis. Now that the side-show spectacle regarding raising the US debt ceiling (i.e., whether the US would self-immolate) has passed (for the near-term). The issue for the markets relates to two items: 1) The prospects for Europe avoiding a financial crisis 2) The outlook for the US economy It will take time and many more data points to determine whether we are headed for another recession (double dip) within the next 12-months. Crackerjack maintains a baseline view that we will not though we will be monitoring the US economy vigilantly.  ...

Guess? (GES) – An undervalued global brand

Guess (GES) is an undervalued global brand. The stock performance has decoupled relative to many other global apparel stocks based on a number of factors such as: fashion, US comparable store sales, exposure to Europe, and management team changes. Negativity looks overblown for investors who have patience and perspective, especially relative to valuations of other apparel brands with global aspirations such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren, PVH, Coach, and True Religion. The following research will explore why Guess is an investment opportunity now: Here are the reasons why Guess (GES) shares are a buy right now with almost 100% upside to $74 in two years: 1)  Organic growth rate is high 2)  Fears related to exposure to Italy are overblown 3)  China will be a growth driver for...

Welcome to Crackerjack Finance

Crackerjack Finance holds the viewpoint that superior investment results come from three areas:  knowledge, perspective, and disciplined research. After growing weary of financial websites and blogs that either a) regurgitate headlines or b) scratch the surface with the quick-and-easy investment recommendations, Crackerjack was conceptualized in order to provide much deeper investment analysis with regard to the broad economy, overall markets, sector themes, geopolitical implications, and most importantly, straightforward company/stock research. Content on this site will be clearly delineated if it is a high conviction investment idea vs an observation or research that is provided to help deepen an understanding of the economy, markets, or a company. Crackerjack believes in an open forum where analysis can be exchanged and stand on its own merit. Creative ideas, which contain unique insights...
