Heat Map

by Larry Levin While at the J-Hole symposium, leading global central planners will be explaining why they believe the economy is great, yet at the same time it is so bad that there is still a need for ZIRP and NIRP. It's highly unlikely, however, that the central planning nannies will admit that the charts both above and below from Bloomberg are worrisome. Janet Yellen's 10am ET speech will not be the only one that may cause fireworks; Super-Mario Drahgi will also be speaking at 12pm ET.   … [Read More...]

Mixed Response to Yellen’s Speech

        The U.S. equity markets are mixed in afternoon action, with traders grappling with Fed interest rate hike expectations as Chairwoman Janet Yellen's speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium appeared to carefully walk the line between hawkish and dovish views. Meanwhile, in the wake of this week's solid gains, conviction could be getting stymied by reports of an unauthorized Russian aid convoy crossing the Ukrainian border. Treasuries are mixed and crude oil prices are lower, while the U.S. dollar and gold prices are higher. In equity news, Gap topped the Street's earnings expectations, along with Salesforce.com, which also raised its full-year outlook, while Foot Locker and GameStop bested analysts' profit and same-store sales projections. Overseas, European equities lost some ground on the increased Ukraine uneasiness and caution ahead of European Central Bank President Mario Draghi's speech at the Fed gathering later today. At 12:57 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is dipping 0.1%, while the S&P 500 Index is flat and the Nasdaq Composite is rising 0.3%. WTI crude oil is decreasing $0.63 to $93.33 per barrel, Brent crude oil is declining $0.28 to $102.35 per barrel, and wholesale gasoline is off $0.02 at $2.58 per gallon. Elsewhere, the Bloomberg gold spot price is gaining $2.62 to $1,279.40 per ounce, while the Dollar Index—a comparison of the U.S. dollar to six major world currencies—is up 0.2% at 82.34. Gap Inc. (GPS $45) reported 2Q earnings ex-items of $0.70 per share, one penny above the consensus estimate of analysts surveyed by FactSet, with revenues rising 3.0% year-over-year (y/y) to $4.0 billion, roughly inline with the Street's expectations. The retailer said its 2Q same-store sales—sales at stores open at least a year—were flat y/y, as previously announced earlier this month. GPS reaffirmed its full-year profit outlook. The company said it remains focused on its strategic initiatives, as it … [Read More...]
