Tech stocks resume skid as stimulus progress sparks next stage of value rotation

US stocks were mixed on Monday, with the Dow Jones industrial average up over 300 points while the Nasdaq composite continued its slide after the Senate's approval of a massive new relief package kicked off a new phase of the market-wide value rotation. Senators voted along party lines on Saturday to push a $1.9 trillion stimulus plan closer to President Joe Biden's desk. The package is expected to receive a final House vote later this week, giving Democrats time to enact an expansion to federal unemployment benefits before the current boost expires on March 14. The package also includes $1,400 direct payments, aid for state and local governments, and funding for vaccine distribution....

SPAC activity may be peaking right now and will slow for the rest of 2021, JPMorgan says

The end of the SPAC mania could be near, according to JPMorgan. In a Friday note a team of quantitative strategists led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou said that the pace of SPAC activity in 2021 is indicating the current SPAC cycle may be ending soon. "This year's acceleration in SPAC activity has been so strong that [it] is more reminiscent of a peak rather than the beginning or middle of a boom SPAC cycle. This is especially true if one looks at the recent performance of SPACs," the strategists wrote. In just 2021 alone, there have been 248 SPAC IPOs, according to SpacInsider. However, according to JPMorgan and Bloomberg data, the performance of SPACs has disappointed in the last month....

The recent sell-off has taken the 'frothiness' out of SPACs and has made mega-cap tech stocks look more attractive, Bespoke Investment says

The recent slide in stocks has wiped out the "frothiness" in some of Wall Street's hottest spots, said market research provider Bespoke Investment Group. The firm also said its analysts see some mega-caps as trading at "attractive" entry points following last week's market sell-off. Major US stock indexes have been knocked back as investors price in expectations for economic growth and higher inflation as the world's largest economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Some Treasury yields, notably the 10-year yield which influences a range of lending programs, have been quickly pushed higher. This has triggered a selloff, particularly in technology stocks whose values have run higher since hitting a bear-market low in late-March 2020....

The swift decline in technology stocks over the past month likely has further room to the downside, Mike Wilson, Morgan Stanley's chief US equity strategist, said in a recent client note. Since its peak on February 16, the Nasdaq 100 has declined by more than 10% even as a constant stream of good news hit investors.

US growth prospects may overtake investor risk appetite as the biggest factor driving the dollar, says HSBC

The US dollar immediately jumped after Friday's blowout US jobs report for February. HSBC says that the move suggests prospects for US economic growth -- or a theme of "US exceptionalism" -- rather than risk appetite, are beginning to gain influence over the direction of the greenback.   Risk appetite, or RORO, -- the investment bank's shorthand for "risk on-risk off" -- was the dominant influence over the dollar throughout 2020, leaving the safe-haven greenback down relative to other currencies. But the battle during 2021 has turned "finely balanced" following hints that the US exceptionalism theme that stokes dollar buying and strength appeared to be growing in sway....

Tech stocks resume skid as stimulus progress sparks next stage of value rotation

US stocks were mixed on Monday, with the Dow Jones industrial average up over 300 points while the Nasdaq composite continued its slide after the Senate's approval of a massive new relief package kicked off a new phase of the market-wide value rotation. Senators voted along party lines on Saturday to push a $1.9 trillion stimulus plan closer to President Joe Biden's desk. The package is expected to receive a final House vote later this week, giving Democrats time to enact an expansion to federal unemployment benefits before the current boost expires on March 14. The package also includes $1,400 direct payments, aid for state and local governments, and funding for vaccine distribution....

SPAC activity may be peaking right now and will slow for the rest of 2021, JPMorgan says

The end of the SPAC mania could be near, according to JPMorgan. In a Friday note a team of quantitative strategists led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou said that the pace of SPAC activity in 2021 is indicating the current SPAC cycle may be ending soon. "This year's acceleration in SPAC activity has been so strong that [it] is more reminiscent of a peak rather than the beginning or middle of a boom SPAC cycle. This is especially true if one looks at the recent performance of SPACs," the strategists wrote. In just 2021 alone, there have been 248 SPAC IPOs, according to SpacInsider. However, according to JPMorgan and Bloomberg data, the performance of SPACs has disappointed in the last month....

Rising interest rates are usually bullish for stocks when these 3 factors are met, according to LPL

A sudden spike in interest rates has accelerated the internal leadership change of the stock market over the past month, with high-growth technology stocks underperforming relative to more value-oriented sectors like energy and financials.  But rising interest rates have historically been accompanied by rising stock prices, especially when an improving economic growth outlook is part of what's driving rates higher, according to an analysis from LPL Financial....

The recent sell-off has taken the 'frothiness' out of SPACs and has made mega-cap tech stocks look more attractive, Bespoke Investment says

The recent slide in stocks has wiped out the "frothiness" in some of Wall Street's hottest spots, said market research provider Bespoke Investment Group. The firm also said its analysts see some mega-caps as trading at "attractive" entry points following last week's market sell-off. Major US stock indexes have been knocked back as investors price in expectations for economic growth and higher inflation as the world's largest economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Some Treasury yields, notably the 10-year yield which influences a range of lending programs, have been quickly pushed higher. This has triggered a selloff, particularly in technology stocks whose values have run higher since hitting a bear-market low in late-March 2020....

3 reasons why the correction in tech stocks has further to run, according to Morgan Stanley's top US equity strategist

The swift decline in technology stocks over the past month likely has further room to the downside, Mike Wilson, Morgan Stanley's chief US equity strategist, said in a recent client note. Since its peak on February 16, the Nasdaq 100 has declined by more than 10% even as a constant stream of good news hit investors. Vaccinations for COVID-19 continue to surge, daily COVID-19 cases have collapsed since the January peak, and Congress is on the verge of passing a $1.9 trillion stimulus package....

US growth prospects may overtake investor risk appetite as the biggest factor driving the dollar, says HSBC

The US dollar immediately jumped after Friday's blowout US jobs report for February. HSBC says that the move suggests prospects for US economic growth -- or a theme of "US exceptionalism" -- rather than risk appetite, are beginning to gain influence over the direction of the greenback.   Risk appetite, or RORO, -- the investment bank's shorthand for "risk on-risk off" -- was the dominant influence over the dollar throughout 2020, leaving the safe-haven greenback down relative to other currencies. But the battle during 2021 has turned "finely balanced" following hints that the US exceptionalism theme that stokes dollar buying and strength appeared to be growing in sway....
