Earnings Season Update: The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations - earnings q2

 

Everyone beats Wall Street's beaten down earnings expectations. But what really matters is the year-over-year change.

 

"So far, 43 of 500 companies have officially printed their GAAP and non-GAAP stories for an aggregate year-over-year EPS decline of -7.1%," Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough wrote earlier today. "Financials EPS are currently -8.3% y/y and allegedly they all “beat”; I’d still sell them on bounces from here."

The Troubling Truth Behind The Rally To All-Time Highs - volume cartoon

 

The no-volume rally to all-time highs in the S&P 500 is disconcerting to say the least. Why?

 

No Volume = No Conviction

 

Here's analysis via Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough in a note sent to subscribers earlier today:

 

"Volume continues to crash into the all-time closing SPY highs – yesterday’s Total US Equity Volume (including dark pool) was down -20% and -24%, respectively versus its 1-month and 1-year averages; this cannot be bullish for active vs. passive flows (in June, active saw its biggest monthly outflow since Oct 2008)"

"... Longer-term though, on something like P/E ratios, Shiller has been proven right. Today’s Chart of The Day is a picture Shiller emblazoned into my thick but impressionable skull in the 1990s. It reminded me that today’s US stock market “multiple” looks like it did in 1929 (you can find Shiller’s long-term mean reversion and behavioral research at www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/)."
