TAL: Attendee Capacity Growth Driving Better FY3Q21 Topline Results; Marketing For Online Education Business Continues To Soar

TAL will report FY3Q21 results on January 21st before the markets open with an 8am EST conference call. We are positive on TAL’s FY3Q21 performance. In FY3Q21, we believe TAL is likely to benefit from the higher growth of the number of normal-price courses and associated attendees in Peiyou as well as its continuing efforts in online expansions. Based on our data and calculations, we believe the company’s FY3Q21 revenue is likely to be higher than consensus at $1,030M (24.4% Y/Y growth vs. company’s guidance of 28% - 32% Y/Y growth) and our estimate, and likely to come in towards the higher-en...

Int'l Insights: EM Strategy

EM Outperforming; Favor EM over EAFE With many global markets crumbling last week, one might assume that EM would have underperformed -- but that is not what transpired. What we saw was a decline in the US dollar which, along with improving coronavirus metrics in China, led to EM outperformance. Reiterating our 12/20/19 EM Strategy, we continue to believe EM is a better place to be than EAFE, supported by new highs in the EM vs. EAFE ratio and our ongoing belief that the US dollar is likely not headed for meaningfully new highs in the near-term... see charts below. Below we highlight attrac...

The 10 to 2's spread is quietly breaking out to YTD highs and breaking above a ~2.5-year downtrend. This steepening yield curve is good for Financials/banks and also the economy as recession concerns are subsiding... see chart below. • ...

Int'l Macro Vision: Global Ex-U.S. Equity Strategy

In our January 31 International Compass we presented a case for an incrementally improving overall global outlook, with the caveat that market bottoms tend to be a process that develops over many weeks. Since the end of January, not a lot has changed to alter our views. We remain constructive overall and continue to believe that global equities (MSCI ACWI) are going through a bottoming process. Opportunities exist but Sector leadership is mixed. In our February International Strategy, we explore various themes which lead to our overall constructive outlook, along with areas of the market wher...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Global indexes approaching major resistance Broad global indexes are bumping up against logical downtrend resistance. As a result, our outlook remains cautious and our baseline expectation for continued downward pressure on global equities remains intact. At the same time, we are seeing signs that the worst of the declines may be behind us as global cyclical Sectors show RS improvements while defensive Sectors display early signs of RS deterioration. • Regional/Country Overview. The U.S., Europe, and Japan all remain in downtrends from a price perspective, though major resistance levels a...
