Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Examining Prior Extended Periods Despite our concerns regarding the growing performance disparity between the haves (e.g., Technology, FAANG, mega-caps, growth) and the have nots (e.g., Materials, Energy, small-caps, value), the silver lining continues to be that the latter group is not breaking down on an absolute (price) basis. Due to this fact along with several observations highlighted below, we remain bullish. Continue to buy the dips. • Sector Relative Strength Rankings & Weighting Recommendations. Cap-weighted growth Sectors Technology, Services, Discretionary, and Communications co...

Current market expectations for Ford misunderstand where the company is in the auto cycle. Markets expect UAFRS-based (Uniform) ROA (ROA') to never recover to the 2010-2019 mid-cycle profitability levels that are warranted, or even pessimistic considering the company's business strategy. Thanks to the At-Home Revolution, Ford has strong auto cycle tailwinds for the first time in five years. In addition, the company's smart strategy in the commercial market to invest in selling services, and how its electric vehicle (EV) investments can be under-written by that segment, combined with driving o...
