Market Moment
Glen Eagle®: America’s Women-Owned Trading Desk®  
08/02/2021

  • S&P Wellness check up: The S&P500, which is market cap-weighted, ended last week in negative territory thanks to the poor performance of the largest technology companies. However, this hides the fact that the overall market may still be healthy. 60% of all the companies in the S&P500 ended the week in positive territory. In Addition, 86.8% of all companies beat revenue forecasts in the latest quarter.   
  • Crackdown smackdown: With Beijing continuing to crack down on some of the largest technology companies, investors are starting to sell out of their positions. Alibaba, Tencent, Kuaishou, and Meituan alone have lost roughly 20% of their combined value this past month. The recent volatility highlights the risks of investing in a communist China that, despite its growing size, is still an emerging economy.
  • Here we go? Since 1928 the three months of August, September, and October are the worst three-month span of the year with an average return of just 0.03%. Not surprisingly volatility (as defined by the CBOE VIX) tends to pick up during these three months.
  • Homey is good! Unlike mall and office building real estate, multi-family real estate (ex: apartments) has had its largest sales volume in history this year at $92 billion. Most of the growth has been in regions that saw population-growth during the pandemic; namely, suburban and Sunbelt locations like Dallas, Atlanta, Phoenix, and Nashville.
