Us Revenue, Margin and Manufacturing Recessions

Two Consecutive Quarters of Negative Growth

Full Report: Download pdf 24 Pages

Vhart 1

The NYSE Short Interest Rate (right) is at levels not seen since just before the 2008 collapse of Lehman Bros. during the Financial Crisis. Clearly there is a lot of nervousness and it is more than just the expected drop of -4.5% in the current Q3 quarterly earnings. Revenue are expected to fall -5.0% and this makes it the third consecutive fall in quarterly revenues for the S&P 500. Coupled together this reinforces the fears that the global slowdown is washing ashore in the only global hope for growth being the US Economy.

Chart 2

Corporate Free Cash Flows are additionally falling and along with widening corporate yield spreads now crimps the tsunami of share buybacks which have been holding up the US equity markets against steadily deteriorating bad economic numbers.

Sentiment & Confidence has shifted as we predicted and with it the perception of risk. The worry of a US Economic Recession is now a real possibility. Without Central Bank actions, a 2016 recession is almost a certainty. But what can the Federal Reserve realistically do with rates already near zero (see chart below)?

Chart 3

We presently see the current market activity as a counter rally in a short term correcting market. We believe we have more price downside before the central bankers are forced to rush in more triage to keep this market alive. Expect the Central Bankers to do this when the S&P 500 nears 1800. They can't afford the collateral (underpinning the debt pyramid), to be eroded any further than this level without serious consequences!
