The Bottom Line

Lots of cross currents are expected to impact equity markets between now and the end of the year!

  • Technical action by broadly based North American equity indices is encouraging. The Dow Jones Industrial Average broke above its August high at 34,281.36 on Friday to a six month high. The TSX Composite Index broke above its August high at 20,323.57 on Thursday to a six month high.

  • Seasonal influences for developed world equity markets are positive until the first week in January. They are strongest in the last week in November and in the December 16/January 6th period.
  • Earnings estimates for major North American companies continue to drift lower. S&P 500 earnings in the fourth quarter are expected to drop 2.1% on a year-over-year basis.
  • U.S. economic focus is on efforts by the Federal Reserve to lower inflation rate by raising the Fed Fund rate. Consensus currently calls for another 50 basis point increase in the Fed Fund Rate to 4.25%-4.50% on December 14th. Next significant data point watched by the Federal Reserve prior to the December 13th meeting occurs this Thursday when the October Core PCE Price Index is released.
  • A national strike in the U.S. railway industry starting the end of next week is possible. Without a settlement, the unions are set to go on strike at 12:01 am ET on December 9. Producers of time sensitive materials (e.g. chemicals) already are postponing shipments.
  • 'Tis the season for tax loss selling prior to yearend! Tax loss selling pressures are expected to be higher than average this year because North American equity prices on average are significantly lower than last year. Investors will want to realize losses for tax purposes before the end of the year to offset capital gains realized in previous years.
