Valens Equity Insights and Inflections - 2021 06 15

CBRL is set up to not just survive the pandemic, but actually to thrive because of it, and the market isn't pricing this in. Before 2020, the company already had been steadily improving UAFRS-based (Uniform) ROA the past 10 years, thanks to its strong strategy to optimize its restaurant and store business. Now the company is rolling out new strategies, like introducing alcohol sales and off-premise dining offerings, that could turbocharge returns coming out of the pandemic. The market is not pricing these tailwinds in. On top of that, management's compensation aligns them to focus on their str...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself This powerful quote from FDR can be applied to many facets of life. When it comes to the market, fear can lead investors to buy when it is time to sell, sell when it is time to buy, or freeze up altogether. Step one in conquering this issue starts with preparation and a gameplan. In our report from last Thursday (3/12) titled “Searching For A Bottom” we laid out our gameplan and what we need to see before having confidence that equity markets are bottoming. Below we provide new data points and observations. Yes, equities remain deeply oversold...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

The Welcomed Pullback; Defensive Sector Shift The market has begun the pullback we noted in our 1/22/20 US Macro Vision. At the time, the S&P 500 was extended over 10% above its 200-day MA while the Nasdaq Composite extended over 14% above its 200-day MA, something that has happened less than 10 times over the last 20 years for each index. We also noted prior instances of these indexes reaching similar extended levels often resulted in sideways consolidation or a 5-10% pullback. Peak to trough declines are currently in the 3-4% range, meaning it is possible the worst of the declines are behin...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

S&P 500 consolidating despite negative signals We remain cautious as there continues to be several new or persisting negative signals which tell us that upside is likely to be muted from here -- barring improvements. At the same time we are not seeing widespread breakdowns and the major averages are still consolidating within a 1-month horizontal range. As long as this consolidation continues, a neutral outlook is appropriate. • Sector Relative Strength Rankings & Weighting Recommendations. Defensives (Staples, Utilities, Real Estate) notched new YTD RS highs yet again over the past week. ...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

U.S. dollar breaking down; Gold breaking out The S&P 500 is consolidating under 2,954 - logical resistance - as market participants are in wait-and-see mode for incremental trade news ahead of the Trump/Xi G20 meeting later this week. While a breakout is certainly possible, we believe additional consolidation is the more likely scenario. Below we highlight a mix of positive and negative developments which lead us to this conclusion along with updates on other big picture trends. • U.S. dollar (DXY) breaking down, Treasury yields remain suppressed. Dovish Fed comments opened the door for ra...
