NEW YORK, June 22 (Reuters) – Investors in the volatile U.S. stock market are bracing for what could be one of the heaviest trading days of the year on Friday, as FTSE Russell completes the rebalancing of indices that are followed by billions of dollars in investor funds.

FTSE Russell updates the constituents of its indices once a year at the end of June to better reflect the wider markets. This prompts fund managers who have benchmarked their performance against indices to align their own portfolios with the changes. Some $12 trillion is pegged to US Russell indices.

The resulting buying and selling tends to peak at the close of the trading session before the rebuild is final, and some investors are looking to trade on any price dislocation that may result. Total trading volume on Replenishment Day 2021 topped 16 billion shares, making it one of the busiest sessions of the past year.

While past rebalancing has generally gone off without a hitch, some investors said the event is more likely to exacerbate volatility this year, after concerns over a more hawkish Federal Reserve sent stocks and bonds tumbling. and intensified market fluctuations in recent weeks. Read more

The benchmark S&P 500 index has fallen more than 21% year-to-date as the Fed tightens monetary policy to rein in soaring inflation.

“The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates, we’re seeing liquidity drying up and while there’s a lot of liquidity in the stock market, certainly with negative sentiment it will be harder to achieve that rebalancing,” he said. said Rob Haworth, senior investment strategist at US Bank Wealth Management in Seattle.

One of the biggest changes this year will see Meta Platforms (META.O), formerly Facebook, switch to the Russell 1000 Value Index (.RLV), normally the domain of companies perceived to be trading at a discount to to their fundamentals. Meanwhile, energy stocks will receive a larger weighting in the Russell 1000 Growth Index (.RLG), after a meteoric rally over the past year.

Meta’s move to the Russell 1000 Value Index follows a more than 50% drop in the social media giant’s shares this year on the company’s warnings of falling revenue after a furious decade of growth. Read more

The change will drop the communication services sector’s weight in the Russell 1000 Growth Index from 9.9% to 8%, while boosting the sector’s weight in the Russell 1000 Value Index from 6.9 % to 8.7%, according to Jefferies.

Meanwhile, the outstanding performance of the energy sector will lead to a larger weighting of energy stocks in the Russell Growth Indices (.RLG) (.RUO), Jefferies said.

The energy sector, which has soared nearly 40% since last year’s replenishment on the back of a sharp rise in crude prices, will see its weight increase to 1.7% in the Russell 1000 Growth Index , compared to 0.6%.

The move is even more pronounced in the Russell MidCap Growth Index (.RMCCG), with energy taking a weighting of 5.1%, down from 3.3%.

“Growth managers who haven’t had to pay attention to energy for several years now need to pay attention to the sector,” said Steve DeSanctis, equity strategist at Jefferies in New York.

Given the volume of trading and the number of shares involved, FTSE Russell is taking steps to be transparent about the rules for inclusion. It starts in May on its “ranking day”, which determines the market capitalization bands a stock must be in to be included. The following steps include preliminary lists of index additions and deletions.

“We don’t want to make unnecessary changes, any change in methodology is thoughtful,” said Catherine Yoshimoto, director of product management for US Russell indices at FTSE Russell. “We are looking at where there could be future improvements, but the goal is definitely to keep it stable.

How We Navigate Equity Market Volatility – Anton Tagliaferro https://lost-worlds.com/how-we-navigate-equity-market-volatility-anton-tagliaferro/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 06:34:11 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/how-we-navigate-equity-market-volatility-anton-tagliaferro/

Since the start of 2022, we have seen inflation accelerating all over the world. The US reported 8.6% recently, the UK reported 9.0% last month and in Australia, RBA Governor Lowe warned last week that inflation would hit 7% by december.

Rising inflation led to massive bond sales around the world, led by US bonds. This saw Australian government 10-year bonds trading at levels not seen in a long time. In August 2021, yields were as low as 1.1%, then as low as 3% in early 2022 and now this week bonds have traded above 4.0% for the first time since 2014.

High inflation has prompted central banks everywhere to tighten monetary policy, leading to great uncertainty and a slump in stock markets globally. Central banks around the world – including the RBA – now find themselves in a situation where they must orchestrate a slowdown in demand to contain inflation, while trying to maintain economic growth and not plunge their economies into recession. recession.

Although the situation will remain uncertain for some time, it is clear that equity markets are slowly returning to fundamentals where earnings, cash flow and strong balance sheets matter.

What does this mean for the Australian equity market?

Given the many uncertainties, we maintain a cautious view of the overall stock. However, we continue to seek investment opportunities in profitable, well-established and attractively valued companies that we believe have a strong competitive advantage and are led by capable and experienced management teams. We believe these types of businesses are best positioned to weather the current economic uncertainty and grow over time.

Here are our current thoughts:

  • We continue to steer clear of “growth” or unprofitable technology names, such as Megaport and silver zipperas we believe that most of these companies continue to look overvalued, even though many of them have so far fallen by 60 or 70%.
  • We remain cautious on cyclical sectors such as those exposed to consumer spending, housing construction and media spending. That said, some of the higher quality stocks in these sectors, such as Nine Entertainment and Wesfarmers – have fallen very rapidly, so we are looking at the levels at which to buy these types of stocks.
  • We remain cautious on many resource values. With very high prices for many commodities, markets are pricing in continued price and demand strength in what will be a weakening global economic outlook as we enter the second half of 2022. While many stocks of this sector look optically cheap on an earnings-based price, we don’t believe earnings will be sustainable for many of these companies once supply chains normalize and new capabilities come to market .
  • We also remain wary of the big banks. While higher interest rates can potentially help banks as their net interest margins may improve, increased competition in the industry means these benefits may not be as high as they were in the scenarios. rising interest rates. Additionally, there are two other headwinds that banks have to deal with; rising interest rates which will also slow credit growth in the housing and business sectors, and bad debts could also increase as some borrowers grapple with higher interest rates in a slowing economy .

So where do we find opportunities?

We continue to like companies that have self-help initiatives they can undertake internally. Examples include:

  • Brambleswhich announced a strategic review that we believe will create value across its divisions.
  • willwhere over the next year or so, the company hopes to unlock value in its attractive InfraCo division, which generates substantial government-backed revenue.

There are also some companies that we believe are actually benefiting from the current turmoil in supply chains, but whose benefits the market has overlooked. Orica, for example, now faces less competition than before from imports due to explosives supply shortages and is also able to meet many of the cost increases it sees. Aurizon should also benefit as it must reset contracts with its rail network customers in mid-2023 and will be allowed to increase revenues due to rising inflation and bond rates.

We are also finding opportunities in the REIT sector, where we have been cautious for some time. It has fallen 25-30% fairly quickly, with many stocks now trading at substantial discounts to NTA. Although we need to adjust our valuation from earlier expectations, the falls we have seen are starting to provide a margin of safety and attractive yields for some names that we believe are defensively positioned, with low leverage, secure tenants and long-term lease profiles.

In conclusion, while markets are likely to remain volatile and uncertain for the foreseeable future, given concerns over rising interest rates, we will continue to stick to our style of quality and value investing which has provided attractive and less volatile returns to our clients for over two decades. While the current volatility has, of course, impacted our portfolios, we remain defensively positioned in well-established and profitable companies and look forward to investing in new ideas as market opportunities arise. will show up.

PriceVol’s pulse on market volatility https://lost-worlds.com/pricevols-pulse-on-market-volatility/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 12:58:00 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/pricevols-pulse-on-market-volatility/

Market volatility levels rose this week as the S&P 500 fell 4.25% and Fed Chairman Jerome Powell announced a 75 basis point rate hike.

In turn, the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) reached 35 and ended the week at 31.1. Meanwhile, PriceVol, a proprietary market risk instrument developed by ASYMmetric ETFs, peaked for the week at 6.6 and closed at 6.5.

PriceVol was invented to provide a more accurate measure of market volatility as it measures realized volatility and 100% price movements of the S&P 500, giving investors a more granular view of volatility. Learn more about PriceVol.

Where has the volatility been observed?

Benchmark ETFs that mirror the S&P, such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA: SPY), iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:IVV) and the Vanguard 500 Index Fund (NYSEARCA:VOO), experienced heightened levels of volatility across the board.

From a sector perspective, the Consumer Discretionary (XLY) market segment experienced the highest realized volatility levels at 9.9. At the same time, finance (NYSEARCA:XLF) of the market had the lowest level of realized volatility at 4.4 but saw one of the largest rates of change from the previous week at 19%. See the visual representation below:

Additionally, since PriceVol measures all components of the S&P 500, it allows investors to get an idea of ​​how the disparity in returns has been seen over the week. See below what the current dispersion of returns to the left looked like against a traditional low and high volatility market metric.

One ETF designed to protect against market volatility is the ASYMmetric S&P 500ETF (ASPY). ASPY is a rules-based quantitative long/short hedging strategy that seeks to provide the financial community with a shield against bear market declines, by going net short, while also seeking to capture the majority of bull market gains, being long net.

See the performance of the five ETFs discussed over multiple time periods below as well as PriceVol’s full data for the month of May.

2 penny stocks to buy as market volatility returns! https://lost-worlds.com/2-penny-stocks-to-buy-as-market-volatility-returns/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 14:43:00 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/2-penny-stocks-to-buy-as-market-volatility-returns/

Market volatility returns with enthusiasm as fears grow over soaring inflation and central bank rate hikes. This leaves some good buying opportunities on the downside and I am currently looking for blue chip stocks to buy.

Here are two that I believe will recover strongly from the current weakness and provide excellent long-term returns for my portfolio.

Inflation is coming

Inflation is out of control and people are scared. But right now, there’s one thing we believe investors should avoid doing at all costs…and that’s doing nothing. That’s why we’ve put together a special report that unveils 3 of our best sharing ideas in the UK and US to try to better protect against inflation… and best of all, we’re giving it away completely FREE today! today!

science in sport

Price: 54p per share
Market capitalization: £77m

The broader demand for goods and services declines when times are tough for consumers. But I think science in sport (LSE: SIS) could prove more resilient than many UK stocks. This penny stock makes protein powders, energy gels and other nutritional supplements that help athletes keep going.

People don’t give up on their athletic and fitness goals when times get tough. Even if they can’t afford an expensive gym, they can switch to a low-cost operator. Or they can train in another way, like running on the road using home fitness equipment. So I expect demand for Science in Sport products to remain strong.

From a growth perspective, I like the company’s strategy of building the brand through partnerships with elite sports teams and organizations. It has partnered with 330 such organizations, and progress with NBA basketball and NFL football teams in 2021 helped boost US revenue by 50% last year.

Intense competition will likely remain a threat to science in sports. But I’m confident the company could still deliver excellent returns to shareholders in its rapidly growing market. Grand View Research analysts believe the sports nutrition industry will nearly double in size by 2030 (to $82.3 billion).

AfriTin Mining

Price: 6.8p per share
Market capitalization: £75.7 million

Commodity producers like AfriTin Mining (LSE: ATM) are generally not popular stocks when economic conditions deteriorate. The prices of the products they produce can fall when fears about demand increase. AfriTin’s recent rapid price decline illustrates this point and poses a big threat to this particular mining stock.

I’m still thinking about buying AfriTin shares today. Indeed, I’m focused on the company’s long-term earnings prospects and expect sales of its tin to skyrocket in the years to come. I predict that the consumption of solder metal will increase as the demand for consumer electronics grows.

I think this tin miner could also be a particularly lucrative way to exploit the coming “commodities supercycle”. On the one hand, the expansion of its flagship Uis project in Namibia is expected to significantly increase tin production in the coming years. The extension of the current operation should increase production from 850 tonnes per year to 2,800 tonnes in the medium term.

I also like the company because working at Uis will also give him significant exposure to lithium and tantalum. AfriTin hopes that drilling at the site will increase the resource estimate from 71.54 million tonnes of tin to 200 million tonnes of tin, lithium and tantalum. Lithium demand is expected to rise sharply with sales of battery electric vehicles.

Expect more volatility amid relentless crackdowns https://lost-worlds.com/expect-more-volatility-amid-relentless-crackdowns/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 11:51:58 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/expect-more-volatility-amid-relentless-crackdowns/

Based in China, Alibaba (BABA) runs a popular e-commerce platform where a wide variety of products are bought and sold. I am neutral on the title.

Between supply chain disruptions and COVID-19 related lockdowns, Chinese companies have come under tremendous pressure in 2022. The last thing they need is for the government to impose severe restrictions on tech-related businesses .

Still, it seems Beijing hasn’t made it easy for tech companies like Alibaba. Chinese government concerns about cybersecurity have reportedly resulted in policies that hamper revenue generation.

Still, as we’ll see, Alibaba has managed to grow its revenue and that’s a testament to the resilience of the business. On the other hand, a closer look at Alibaba’s financial statistics will reveal issues that need to be addressed.

On top of that, there has been some confusion over whether the IPO of Alibaba’s fintech subsidiary Ant Group will proceed. Overall, it will remain difficult for investors to navigate China’s regulatory environment and Alibaba’s stock is expected to falter for some time.

On TipRanks, BABA scores 9 out of 10 on the Smart Score spectrum. This indicates potential for the stock to outperform the broader market.

Again, again

For some time now, potential investors have been waiting for the IPO of Alibaba co-founder Jack Ma’s Ant Group. Month after month, people have been waiting for positive news, but their patience is being tested.

Meanwhile, Alibaba stock continued to slide. In October 2020, Alibaba shares were trading above $300. More recently, the stock has been hovering near the $110 level.

The downward trend in Alibaba shares began before supply chain bottlenecks wreaked havoc on the global economy. This suggests that China’s strict regulations may have been the main headwind for Alibaba since late 2020 (although COVID-19 lockdowns have undoubtedly created problems as well).

Lately, developments surrounding Ant’s potential IPO have been making headlines, although there has been some confusion. First, on June 9, Reuters reported that “China’s central management has given a tentative green light to” Ant Group to relaunch its IPO in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Sounds like great news for Ant and Alibaba, doesn’t it? Not so soon, the same Reuters report said Ant has no plans to relaunch its IPO. Additionally, Ant’s IPO would require guidance from the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) before it could proceed.

Apparently, regarding Ant’s IPO, CSRC clarified that it “did not conduct any valuation and research work in this regard.” However, the CSRC also said it supports “eligible platform companies to list domestically and internationally.”

These developments only make it harder to invest in Alibaba with confidence. As Jimmy Lee, CEO of The Wealth Consulting Group, put it: “I don’t think the crackdown is behind us for good, because the Chinese will do what they have to when they feel like it. Unfortunately, I think it’s as simple as that.

A big loss and no direction

All of the aforementioned headwinds are clearly weighing on Alibaba’s finances. Of course, the company is an e-commerce giant in China. However, there are simply too many problems going on for Alibaba to thrive as a business.

If potential investors are looking for advice on Alibaba’s earnings and profits, they will certainly be disappointed. Due to the “risks and uncertainties associated with COVID-19, which we are unable to control and difficult to predict”, Alibaba has chosen “not to provide financial guidance as we generally do. beginning of year” in the company’s most recent quarterly financial statements.

Looking at Alibaba’s performance in the first quarter of 2022, bulls and bears can choose their favorite statistics. In the bullish column is Alibaba’s modest revenue growth of 9%, from RMB 187.4 million in the first quarter of 2021 to RMB 204.05 million in the first quarter of 2022.

One could argue, however, that the bottom line is more important than revenue growth. In the case of Alibaba, the company’s net profit loss widened by 140%, from RMB 7.65 million in the first quarter of 2021 to RMB 18.36 million in the first quarter of 2022. , during the same period, Alibaba’s adjusted EBITDA decreased by 22% year-on-year, from RMB 29.9 million to RMB 23.37 million.

So even though Alibaba’s chief financial officer, Toby Xu, said his company “performed well this quarter,” the net numbers showed losses, not gains. Xu might say that Alibaba’s “continued investments
in strategic initiatives have generated promising growth momentum”, but the numbers tell a different story.

The Taking of Wall Street

According to TipRanks analyst rating consensus, BABA is a strong buy, based on 17 buy ratings and two hold ratings. Alibaba’s average price target is $159.84, implying an upside potential of 45.52%.

Takeaway meals

Once valued at $300, Alibaba’s stock is now on a long-term downtrend. Multiple challenges, including Beijing’s strict regulatory policies and COVID-19 related lockdowns, have made it difficult for Alibaba to thrive as a business and look attractive to investors.

Also, Ant’s IPO is in limbo at the moment, so don’t expect that to happen anytime soon. Frankly, it could take a while for Alibaba shares to recover, and the best policy now is to just watch them from a distance.

Terra’s Luna, Luna Classic Tokens See Volatile Trading Amid New Developments https://lost-worlds.com/terras-luna-luna-classic-tokens-see-volatile-trading-amid-new-developments/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 05:15:23 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/terras-luna-luna-classic-tokens-see-volatile-trading-amid-new-developments/

Tokens tied to the Terra ecosystem have seen volatile trading over the past 24 hours amid legal developments against issuing company Terraform Labs, according to the data.

Luna (LUNA) prices gained as much as 30% — from $2.65 on Thursday to $3.44 on Friday morning — and then fell sharply even as the broader crypto market held steady. Luna Classic (LUC) gained up to 34% before slipping this morning, according to data from CoinGecko.

Such volatility came amid reports from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigating whether Terraform Labs violated U.S. laws regarding how it trades its ecosystem tokens.

Futures on the two tokens saw nearly $18 million in liquidations while losses on futures for other major cryptos except Bitcoin and Ether remained below the mark $3 million.

LUNA was issued to holders in late May following the withdrawal of the algorithmic stablecoin terraUSD (UST) in early May – a move that saw the value of the old Luna (now rebranded as LUNC) plummet by as much as 99.7%. Value locked on decentralized finance (DeFi) applications in the Terra ecosystem also fell by $28 billion, as reported.

The liquidations marked the highest losses for traders of the new LUNA tokens so far, according to the data, with nearly $5 million in losses. However, LUNC futures saw higher losses at over $12 million, suggesting that retail traders continue to prefer LUNC trading over LUNA.

New LUNA token futures have seen their highest liquidations since issuance. (Coinglass)

Crypto firms Bybit and Binance are currently the only exchanges offering LUNA futures to traders, while OKEx and Huobi offer LUNC futures. OKEx, popular in Asia, recorded over $9 million in liquidations, the highest among its peers.

LUNA is trading above $3.06 at the time of writing. LUNC is trading just above $0.00007647 with gains falling to 7% for traders over the past 24 hours.

XRP Price Is Ready For Volatility, Traders Beware https://lost-worlds.com/xrp-price-is-ready-for-volatility-traders-beware/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 20:02:36 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/xrp-price-is-ready-for-volatility-traders-beware/
  • Ripple price is likely to decline and look for support at $0.36.
  • The price of XRP will experience limited downside movement as a shift in sentiment will favor greater upside potential.
  • Expect to see a move back towards $0.50 in the next few days with gains of 36%.

Ripple (XRP) price is likely to rise once the bulls find the support they are looking for. Currently, price action in XRP is in retreat as global markets stand on the eve of a surprise double rate hike, raising the stakes for the FED and ECB on monetary tightening and the looming backlash. will follow for cryptocurrencies. Expect a decline towards $0.36 in search of support before the price action rallies towards $0.50 in the coming weeks.

XRP is set to end the week with a turnaround

Ripple price is under pressure from the bears due to the strengthening dollar, retreating stock markets and some tail risks coming from the central bank. There are several court cases involving the SEC that weigh on the public image of cryptocurrencies, but also an Economics 101 lesson on how a central bank decision can move an entire asset class. The surprise move came as the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) ASIA PAC trading raised rates by 50bps when a move of just 25bps had been expected, blinding markets and dictating sentiment. of risk in all corners.

XRP price sees investors wavering as the ECB on Thursday and then the FED next week are to speak and guide the markets on their forecasts of possible monetary tightening. For XRP price, the drop in interest could trigger a move back towards support at $0.36. By then, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) will also be in oversold territory, further highlighting it as a support zone. As the bears will want to book profits, they will need to buy and attribute it to the burst of buy-side supply, which could lead to a rapid rise in price action towards $0.50.

XRP/USD Weekly Chart

With inflation not looking to be under control anytime soon, it seems more reasonable that more rate hikes and tighter monetary policy are needed to chain inflation, which will trigger a decline in stocks and cryptocurrencies. This could mean that XRP breaks below $0.36 and if more dollar strength comes into play, expect to see another drop towards $0.30 or $0.20 depending on how big the move is. the Fed and the ECB. Although the RSI is then massively in oversold territory, the price of XRP could still print more than 40% more losses.

The token carries a purchase and sales tax which is used to fund a treasury. Cash is used to generate yield in DeFi projects and then that yield is distributed among Gnox token holders. Distributed returns come in the form of stablecoins, and analysts point to this as the main reason why the token is garnering such attention from the community.

Edelman: Volatility Shouldn’t Dissuade Investors From Investing in Cryptocurrencies https://lost-worlds.com/edelman-volatility-shouldnt-dissuade-investors-from-investing-in-cryptocurrencies/ Thu, 02 Jun 2022 22:21:18 +0000 https://lost-worlds.com/edelman-volatility-shouldnt-dissuade-investors-from-investing-in-cryptocurrencies/

While the crypto market’s volatile performance in recent weeks may give pause, recent declines should not discourage curious clients from allocating to digital assets, according to Ric Edelman.

Edelman, the founder of the Digital Assets Council of Financial Professionals, spoke with WealthManagement.com on the crypto outlook for clients at the Wealth Management EDGE conference, which took place this week in Hollywood, Florida. hated).

Earlier last month, Bitcoin fell to $26,000 from a previous high of over $60,000 (although it has since rebounded slightly in the low 30s), but Edelman pointed to Bitcoin’s long history of volatility. bitcoin and argued that if investors remained focused on the underlying technology and its adoption in the coming decade, it is easier to understand that we are still at the beginning of “the evolution of crypto”.

Moreover, the lower price also provides an attractive buying opportunity for investors who have held back so far.

“It’s a volatile asset class that’s always changing, and there’s still uncertainty about the future, and that’s why you should allocate low numbers to this asset class,” Edelman said. “You don’t need to allocate more than is prudent, but that doesn’t mean you have to do zero. If you do zero, you are 100% wrong.

During his town hall, Edelman offered five different approaches for crypto newbies (and advisors guiding those clients) to engage. In one possibility, he recommended buying Bitcoin only. Bitcoin is a trademark, the most proven coin and the coin that most institutions buy.

“If all of this explodes and falls to zero, Bitcoin will be the last man standing,” he said. “It’s the best known and your customers have heard of it, even if they don’t know what it is.”

Or customers may prefer to go only with Ethereum; many proponents claim the coin has a better business case than Bitcoin (it is the second largest coin and is widely adopted by businesses). Investors can opt for a combination of the two with a 50/50 or 60/40 split, allocating only 1-3% of assets for purchase. Additionally, clients can opt for the Bitwise 10 Crypto Asset Fund (BITW), which contains the top 10 digital assets by market cap, rebalanced monthly. Comparing it to an S&P 500 for the crypto space, Edelman said investors could use the crypto fund the same way they would use a mutual fund for portfolio diversification.

Often, Edelman said, advisors ask clients about aspects of their financial lives they don’t manage, from cash reserves to life insurance, annuities or rental properties, and he pointed out that advisors also need to ask about digital assets. According to him, too many advisors don’t, either because they don’t like crypto as an option or because they don’t know what or how to ask.

“And that is the fundamental error,” he said. “You need to be able to ask questions about digital assets the same way you ask about all the other things they own that are outside of your purview.”

Edelman’s views contrast sharply with those expressed earlier in the lecture by Noriel Roubini, a professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business. He offered a decidedly more scathing view on cryptocurrencies, arguing that they do not serve as an effective hedge against inflation and that they are far too volatile, speculative and subject to manipulation.
