A Brief Warning On Q1 Earnings - earnings cartoon 01.27.2015


Think first quarter earnings are growing gangbusters? Think again.


Here's the latest from our Macro team in a note sent to subscribers this morning:


"Q1 earnings season kicks-off next week with the bulge bracket banks leading the way (JPM next Wednesday). If you think we’ll follow-up an awful Q4 2015 reporting season (S&P revs -4.0% Earnings -6.9%) with a rebound, think again. We won’t be lapping bad comps until at least Q3 of this year (reported in Q4). In Q1 of 2015, 8/10 sectors saw Y/Y earnings growth, and the one sector with awful earnings was energy, where WTI averaged $48.57 vs. $33.63 in Q1 0f this year. Don’t get excited about Q1 earnings season. It will be more of the same. #thecycle."


Here's the chart highlighting why all of this is so significant.

ISM Services: The Cycle Peaked In July 2015

ISM Services: The Cycle Peaked In July 2015 - sine of the times cartoon 03.03.2016


It's all about the Rate of Change...


While many on Wall Street cheered an expectations-beating sequential uptick in the ISM Services index, one data point does not make a trend. More importantly, the Services index and its individual components continue to trend lower year-over-year.


Here's some brief analysis from our Macro team in a note sent to subscribers earlier this morning:


"While industrial activity has stabilized against 13 months of negative comps, domestic service sector activity continues to slow off its mid-2015 highs. Headline ISM Services along with the Employment and New Orders components improved sequentially in March but the 9-month trend remains one of lower highs and lower lows.  On the Labor Front, the trend has been similar as yesterday’s JOLTS data for February showed Job Openings decline by -159K, continuing the 8-month retreat off the mid-2015 peak."


Here's the key chart on ISM Services

(Notice the peak in July 2015 and the year-over-year slowing in the data)


Stick with the process. Don't get sucked into Wall Street's storytelling.

CHART OF THE DAY: Post-NIRP, European & Japanese Stocks Still Crashing

Editor's Note: Below is a brief excerpt and chart from today's Early Look written by Hedgeye Director Darius Dale. Click here to learn more.


"... In light of all the above, it’s easy to see why European and Japanese capital markets are imploding. The EuroStoxx 600 Index and TOPIX Index have crashed -20.7% and -25% from their respective 52-week closing price highs. Bank stocks are feeling the brunt of the pain amid NIRP-fueled scrutiny of their business models. Specifically, the EuroStoxx Banks Index has crashed -24.6% YTD, while the TOPIX Banks Index has crashed -22.6% from the BoJ’s 1/29 announcement of NIRP."
