Slowing corporate profits mean that the US economy needs a demand boost

Late last week, the market was hit with the news that the US and China had reached an understanding on a number of contentious questions, with Washington agreeing to not impose additional tariffs and Beijing agreeing to purchase more agricultural goods. There were also some minor deals on currency and intellectual property. However, this was not really a resolution to the trade war; rather, it was more like a temporary de-escalation. Here are the reasons why markets need the rollback to continue.

Falling earnings

There is much debate on whether the US economy is heading for a recession. Certainly, it

Goldman Sachs says all is well, but Morgan Stanley sees potential disaster ahead

Public companies have seen their earnings fall, in aggregate, over the past several months. That is not a great sign for the health of the bull market, which is driven in large part by expectations of companies’ growth. When those expectations fall short, the market can stumble. As we discussed in a recent research note, analysts often view such “earnings recessions” as an indicator of economic weakness, though the relationship between corporate earnings and economic health is somewhat fluid.

At present, Wall Street analysts appear starkly divided on what the consequences of a continued earnings recession

It’s not always easy being both a value stock and a growth stock

The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) has proven itself to be a master of crafting profitable and enthralling entertainment across every medium. So far, the House of Mouse has not given the market any reason to think its latest frontier, streaming, will be any exception.

The big question now is not so much a matter of whether Disney can become a dominant player in the streaming space, but rather one of how it can best tackle the transition. Fundamentally, Disney is in the early days of a process of self-disruption.

A note from Morgan Stanley states that modern monetary measures could be counterproductive

It’s no news to anyone that we are living in a historically weird time for monetary policy. Interest rates have been kept exceptionally low for over a decade since the global financial crisis, there are trillions of dollars of bonds with negative yields in the market and the Federal Reserve has recently begun cutting rates again, just a few years after embarking on a hiking cycle. This raises the question: Just how effective is modern central bank policy? This note from Morgan Stanley (MS) Chief Cross-Asset Strategist Andrew Sheets attempts to answer the question.

Democrats are in no mood to give the president a win, but a recession may force their hand

Morgan Stanley (MS)'s analysts have been banging the drum on an economic slowdown for months now. In particular, they have drawn attention to a slowing business cycle and falling corporate margins and profits. They also believe that investors are scapegoating trade tensions and the Federal Reserve’s recent interest rate activity, and are ignoring deteriorating fundamentals. A research note from the bank this week discusses a possible way for the U.S. to combat recession -- fiscal stimulus.

Recession are natural

It’s important to note that the bank does not believe in using policy to avoid a recession -- far

The investment bank argues that weakening trade and industrial data is more important than the recent strong consumer figures

U.S. unemployment is low and consumers are happy. So why are some institutions forecasting a recession? In a recent research note, Morgan Stanley (MS)'s Chief Cross-Asset Strategist Andrew Sheets offered an argument for why investors should pay more attention to industrial and trade data than consumer confidence.

The canary in the coalmine

Consumer activity makes up around 70% of the U.S. economy, and consumer-centric data has been good lately. Unemployment is near all-time lows, property prices are rising, interest rates are being lowered and consumer confidence surveys report happy buyers. Why then do institutions like Morgan Stanley examine industrial

Is late summer actually a poor time for stocks?

Summer is an odd time of year. The weather is hot, no one is working and everyone should be relaxing. And yet somehow August always seems to throw up some adverse market event. In this latest note from Morgan Stanley’s (MS) chief equity strategist, we examine why this is, and what the dog days of summer may have in store for us this year.

What’s the deal with late summer?

It’s a commonly held belief that the back-end of summer is a poor period for stocks, but is this actually true? As it turns out, yes:
