Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Status Quo: Bullish Outlook Intact Our outlook remains status quo: we are bullish and we believe the path of least resistance remains higher. With a lack of breakdowns across Sectors and major indexes, small- and mid-caps outperforming, and new price highs in the S&P 500, Nasdaq 100, Technology, and Discretionary, it is hard to be anything but bullish. · Sector Relative Strength Rankings & Weighting Recommendations. A portion of our bullish outlook has been supported by the fact that RS for defensive Sectors is making lower highs ever since the S&P 500 bottomed in March. This continu...

WGO currently trades below corporate averages relative to UAFRS-based (Uniform) earnings, with an 18.0x Uniform P/E. At these levels, the market is pricing in expectations for Uniform ROA to decline from 26% in 2019 to 18% in 2024, accompanied by 3% Uniform asset growth going forward. Analysts have similar expectations, projecting Uniform ROA to drop to 12% levels in 2020, amidst coronavirus-driven headwinds, before recovering to just 21% in 2021, accompanied by 9% Uniform asset growth as a result of the firm's acquisition of Newmar Corp. That said, management is confident about their acquisit...

Market In “Wait-And-See” Phase We started to see waning upside momentum in the S&P 500 last week with the rising wedge breakdown and 2760 support level violation on Tuesday. Despite this, there was no downside follow through the following day as investors digested a new $484B fiscal relief package. This led to the S&P 500 finding support at 2725-2735 which leads us to where we are now -- testing recent highs. We see waning upside momentum and several aspects continue to suggest the S&P 500 remains vulnerable to a pullback, but the market is simply not breaking down. We believe some near-term ...

S&P 500 Coiled Spring Our view remains bullish as long as the S&P 500 is above the 2940-2980 support zone and we suggest buying any dips. Additionally, 3076 is a short-term support level to watch on the S&P 500; if 3076 holds it would be further confirmation that the bulls are still in charge. · What Would Alter Our Bullish Outlook? Key support levels we are watching include the 2940-2980 zone on the S&P 500, 9500 on the Nasdaq 100 (or $231.50 on the QQQ), and $133 on the Russell 2000 (IWM). A break below these support levels would be a bearish trend change, which would signal additi...
