The S&P just handed in its best results in an earnings season in 13 years says Bespoke Investment founder Paul Hickey speaking on CNBC.
“Coming into earrings season analyst sentiment had become extremely negative. Negative revisions versus positive revisions were at levels you don’t see often. Instead we rallied 10%.
Have we borrowed too much from the future? “Instead I think we’re getting pay back from the loan we gave in June coming into earnings season when the market plummeted thinking it was going to be an earnings disaster and we also reached peak panic over inflation. Instead companies did way better than expected.
What about the next few quarters? We’ve seen a sharp reversal in breadth. We had almost no stocks in the S&P above their 50dma in June, today it’s up to 90%! When you have 90% of stocks above their 50dma, when you first get to that level, forward returns over the next 3-12 months have been positive over 90% of the time.
What’s unique now is there’s over 90% of stock over 50dma and less than half above the 200 dma. Going back to 1990 you’ve seen that happen three times – in April 2009, October 2011 and May of 2020. The returns following those, the market did well. We think the market can do well.
‘Every time we see the market go up we see another note come out saying don’t trust the rally and the easy money has been made. But instead we see buying on strength.”
