Approaching stall speed

Important News

Dear Friends,

I have been writing the Trading Diary newsletter for almost 20 years. It has been a great success but times are changing. Advertisers have largely migrated to Google & social media and independent advertising through brokers has slowed to a trickle. We have therefore decided to change the format of the newsletter in line with these developments.

In future, market analysis will be provided by way of subscription through The Patient Investor. The format will remain the same, with regular updates focused on major markets — stocks, precious metals, commodities, interest rates and the economy — and increased coverage of sectors and industries.

While the change may seem sudden, the changes in advertising revenue have been evident for more than a year and I have been postponing the inevitable for some time.

Details of subscriptions are available at The Patient Investor and include a $1 subscription for the first month.

Thank you for your support.

Approaching stall speed

With 89.7% of companies having reported, S&P are projecting 4.4% earnings growth for June quarter 2019 compared to the second quarter in 2018. Even more interesting is their projection of 3.4% growth for the September quarter. With EPS growth boosted by a stock buyback yield of 3.5%, this warns that the economy is close to stall speed.

S&P 500 Earnings per share Forecast

The daily chart for the S&P 500 shows support at 2830/2840, while a higher trough on 21-Day Money Flow indicates (secondary) buying pressure. I expect another test of resistance at 3030; breakout above resistance at 2940 would confirm.
