A hot CPI print following the recent strong jobs print has put ‘high for long’ back in focus, challenging the soft landing narrative. We discuss with Phoebe what these ‘bumps in the road’ mean our views on TIPS, breakevens, and duration generally. As for Gold, Greg dissects the reasons for the recent rally and reviews whether the rate cutting cycle is going to be as bullish for Gold as it was historically.
 
Speakers:
Thomas Salopek, Global Cross Asset Strategy
Phoebe White, Head of US Inflation Strategy
Greg Shearer, Head of Metals Research

Speaker: Mislav Matejka, CFA, Head of Global Equity Strategy
With respect to bond yields’ direction, our call last October was to go long duration, that bond yields have likely peaked. After the ytd bounceback, we think that yields will resume moving lower. Our FI team forecasts that US and German 10-year yields will be below current on 3-, 6- and 9-month horizons. We fundamentally agree with this, especially given the elevated geopolitical risks at present, but note the risks of inflation staying too hot. The Fed might be wrong to assume that all the recent inflation pickup is transitory; also the term premia are outright negative again – pointing to inflation complacency. If bond yields end up moving higher from here, against our base case view, that might be “for the wrong reasons”, with market weakening in that scenario, like last summer. Now, irrespective of how one sees the bond yields’ direction from here, we think that the Utilities sector’s poor performance has likely gone too far. If yields fall, as is our core view, that should help the sector. In the opposite scenario, the overall market could weaken, and the typical low beta of Utilities could come to the fore. In addition: 1. The client concern is with respect to perceived elevated leverage of the sector, but we think this is misplaced. Leverage is higher than in the past, but cash flow generation is strong and Utilities stocks are solidly investment grade. 2. Utilities have been derated to pre-Ukraine levels, but power prices are still higher than pre-Ukraine. Power prices should not go lower from here, as industrial demand is starting to come back. 3. Earnings relative of Utilities are continuing to move up, making the sector very attractive at present. P/E relative of Utilities is near record cheap. 4. Renewables have been underperforming the rest of the sector for more than three years now, and are increasingly more attractively priced. We also think that Real Estate should be looked at again.

Speaker: Mislav Matejka, CFA, Head of Global Equity Strategy
In terms of leadership, US and Japan are ahead of other markets ytd, Growth is outperforming Value and large caps are again beating small, in all key regions. We continue to believe that this style of leadership will broadly stay the case for a while longer, until there is a break, or a reset, in the cycle. For Value, commodities, low Quality, small caps, EM or International stocks to begin leading more sustainably one needs to see a reflationary backdrop, in our view, but we could have the opposite. Within this, we have recently taken profits on US vs Eurozone OW, as the Eurozone risk-reward has improved, in our view. Among other, Eurozone valuations appear very attractive, relative growth momentum could be bottoming out and ECB could start moving ahead of the Fed, which would be very atypical. We also have a tactical buy on China given extreme cheapness and UW positioning by most investors. Broadly, JPM Fixed Income’s call is that bond yields are fundamentally set to move lower in 2H, but we note a pickup in inflation swaps, as well as the outright negative term premia for bonds again, which suggests that there is a lot of complacency in the bond market with respect to the inflation risk. Consequently, the gap that has opened up ytd between Fed futures and the equity market is getting wider. Equities rallied almost 30% from last October lows, driven in Nov-Dec by the expectation of a Fed pivot, but these projections have fully reversed back to October low levels. Equities are ignoring the most recent pivot of a pivot, which might be a mistake. The assumption that the market is likely making here is one of growth acceleration coming to the rescue in 2H. In this regard, we note that earnings projections for 2024 are still not moving up. Regionally, Japan is staying our top pick, continuing our 2023 preference.

Using positioning as a guide, investors have been expressing the opinion that Mortgages are cheap relative to Corporates, but the excess returns have gone the other way, with Corporates outperforming by ~1% in terms of excess return YTD. Looking ahead, Corporates can still outperform MBS in a range-bound rate environment with little economic growth risk while high-coupon MBS, with better yields due to negative convexity, can also do well in a stable rate environment.

Speaker: Mislav Matejka, CFA, Head of Global Equity Strategy
The bulk of the equity performance so far this year, and indeed in the past 18 months, was driven by multiple expansion. Globally, 12m forward earnings are up only 7% from the lows, in contrast to nearly 30% P/E upmove. 2024 EPS projections are again down small in the US ytd, and are more meaningfully lower in Europe. At the same time, bond yields are higher, squeezing ERPs. Global earnings yield vs bond yield differential has been moving lower, to be now below 2007 levels. Central banks are set to deliver some cuts in 2H, but in order to justify current equity valuations, we believe that we will need to see at least some earnings acceleration, as well. Ultimately, equity valuations will end up responding to earnings momentum trends, as there is a clear historical correlation between P/E multiples and earnings revisions. IBES is projecting a sequential pickup in earnings growth between 2023 and 2026, but our concern is that profit growth could underwhelm. If the earnings acceleration fails to materialize, this could act as a constraint, in particular for Cyclical sectors, which are currently trading at price and P/E relative highs vs Defensives. Regionally, China equities showed no rerating over the past 18 months, still trading around 9x forward, which is at absolute and relative lows. Eurozone trailing buybacks yield is at present quite close to US. At the same time, Eurozone dividend yield at 3.0% is much higher than US at 1.3%, and bond yields are meaningfully lower – with these three together resulting in a much better total equity yield vs bond yield for Eurozone equities than for the US, of 240bp – we closed US vs Eurozone OW last week.

Speaker: Mislav Matejka, CFA, Head of Global Equity Strategy
We have cut Eurozone to UW vs the US in early May of 2023, and had a preference for the US since. We are now closing the US over Eurozone OW, for the following reasons: 1. Eurozone has lagged in the past few quarters, losing 14% relative since May, and had relative outflows - in 41 out of the past 52 wks. At 13.3x forward, it is trading cheap vs the US, which is now on 21x. Even if one were to look at sector neutral P/E rating of Eurozone vs the US, it is trading the cheapest vs any time pre COVID. 2. We had a preference for Growth over Value style through 2023 and again this year. Even as we stay with this tilt, we note that Growth style has already performed exceptionally well, it is trading stretched and is at risk of a reversal. Of course, within Europe there is also an increasing risk of MOMO unwind, but the magnitude of the potential impact would always be greater for the US market. 3. In terms of activity momentum, Eurozone had a clear weakening through last year and especially relative to the US. The relative growth disappointments of the region might have peaked, as seen in improving relative CESIs. 4. While ECB typically takes its cue from the Fed, there is a chance that it moves ahead of the US this time around. 5. We have been cautious on China over the past year from a global allocation perspective, but have a tactically more positive China call, and if this continues tracking, it could indirectly help Eurozone. We are neutralizing the US vs Eurozone preference, but not reversing. This is because the potential for a market drawdown is elevated, with Goldilocks fully in the price. The risks are on both sides of this narrow path: either to growth disappointing, as seen in latest weak retail sales and US small business confidence, and also from inflation potentially staying too hot, as seen in the US 1-year inflation swaps approaching October highs. What is attractive in Euro Area? We note that every single Eurozone level 1 sector is trading at a greater than historical discount vs the US.

A slightly warmish CPI hasn’t moved the needle for us, so we stick with our current view on duration. Despite recently turning neutral on US duration, slowing growth and inflation should produce DM gov’t bond return of ~6.5% assuming our yield targets are realized. Upside risk for growth and inflation may continue to eat in to rate cutting plans. With the Magnificent 7 facing jitters and Equal Weight S&P at highs, we are skeptical of the breadth improvement as megacaps are still leading with the laggards dragged along for the ride. As for PMI dislocations vs risk assets, we acknowledge the improvement on the growth trajectory closing some of the gap, but historically, in the event of a 2 standard deviation gap, stocks have had to make more of the adjustment.

Speaker: Mislav Matejka, CFA, Head of Global Equity Strategy
We favoured Growth over Value style through last year, and again so far ytd, arguing that the Nov-Dec Value rally – such as an outperformance of BKX and of small caps seen at the time – was unlikely to last. There is a clear concern over how sustainable the Mag -7 run is, but we note that this group of stocks is not trading increasingly more expensive, at least not in relative terms. In fact, Mag-7 stocks appear cheaper at present vs the rest of the market than they were trading on average in the past five years. Admittedly, in absolute terms, there appears to be an excess, and Mag-7 could see earnings disappointments as well, proving to be more cyclical. More broadly, Growth style is also supported by the continued better earnings delivery vs Value, and this is the reason we keep the Growth style preference. Where valuations are becoming stretched is in Cyclical sector groups, with European Cyclicals trading at more than one standard deviation expensive vs Defensives. Cyclicals in general are at price relative highs vs Defensives, as high as in ’09-’10, when the synchronized global recovery did materialize. Such an acceleration might be the wrong template this time around. The link between Cyclicals/Defensives earnings and indicators such as IFO remains strong, with IFO leading, and it suggests that Cyclicals earnings are set to soften over the next few quarters, in contrast to the consensus calling for an acceleration. In addition, bond yields are set to inflect lower again, we called in March Chartbook last week for a return to the long duration trade, and this could take out some relative support from Cyclicals.
