Is this the week markets finally manage to scratch out a rally?  Barring an absolute collapse into the three day weekend, US stocks are poised to finish off the week significantly higher, but before we get to the closing bell, there’s a bunch of economic data to get through, including Wholesale Inventories, Personal Income and Spending, the PCE Core Deflator, and Michigan Confidence.

Treasuries are modestly higher, equities are flat, crude oil is slightly lower, and bitcoin is down heading into the final session before a three-day weekend.

In today’s Morning Lineup, we recap major market moves out of Asia and Europe as well as the comparison in the performance between US and European stocks so far this year.

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to the summer driving season, and prices heading into the period have surged both this month and on a YTD basis.  The national average price of a gallon of gas, according to AAA, sits at $4.60 per gallon, which is up just under 10% this month (third-largest increase since 2005) and 40% YTD (second largest YTD increase since 2005).  The 40% YTD increase is more than twice the historical average and follows what was a 35% YTD increase last year.  There’s pain at the pump.

Gas prices have no doubt surged, but if there’s any potential silver lining, it is that from a seasonal perspective, we’re at the point in the year where prices tend to peak.  Whether prices follow that seasonal pattern this year, though, remains to be seen.

The Bespoke 50 Growth Stocks — 5/26/22

The “Bespoke 50” is a basket of noteworthy growth stocks in the Russell 3,000.  To make the list, a stock must have strong earnings growth prospects along with an attractive price chart based on Bespoke’s analysis.  The Bespoke 50 is updated weekly on Thursday unless otherwise noted.  There were no changes to the list this week.

The Bespoke 50 is available with a Bespoke Premium subscription or a Bespoke Institutional subscription.  You can learn more about our subscription offerings at our Membership Options page, or simply start a two-week trial at our sign-up page.

The Bespoke 50 performance chart shown does not represent actual investment results.  The Bespoke 50 is updated weekly on Thursday.  Performance is based on equally weighting each of the 50 stocks (2% each) and is calculated using each stock’s opening price as of Friday morning each week.  Entry prices and exit prices used for stocks that are added or removed from the Bespoke 50 are based on Friday’s opening price.  Any potential commissions, brokerage fees, or dividends are not included in the Bespoke 50 performance calculation, but the performance shown is net of a hypothetical annual advisory fee of 0.85%.  Performance tracking for the Bespoke 50 and the Russell 3,000 total return index begins on March 5th, 2012 when the Bespoke 50 was first published.  Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.  The Bespoke 50 is meant to be an idea generator for investors and not a recommendation to buy or sell any specific securities.  It is not personalized advice because it in no way takes into account an investor’s individual needs.  As always, investors should conduct their own research when buying or selling individual securities.  Click here to read our full disclosure on hypothetical performance tracking.  Bespoke representatives or wealth management clients may have positions in securities discussed or mentioned in its published content.

Morning stock market summary

Below is a snippet of content from today’s Morning Lineup for Bespoke Premium members.  Start a two-week trial to Bespoke Premium now to access the full report.

We’ll be honest, based on the way markets have been trading the last couple of months, we would have expected that if the 7th largest stock (NVIDIA) in the Nasdaq 100 was trading 5% lower in reaction to earnings, that futures for the index would also be lower.  Right now, futures are actually trading about 0.4% higher. Is this real?

In addition to the positive tone in futures, there’s also some major M&A news with Broadcom (AVGO) reaching a deal to acquire VMware (VMW) in a cash and stock deal valued at $61 billion in what would be one of the largest tech mergers of all time.  On the one hand, a bull would point to this transaction as a sign that companies are finding value in the market after the plunge over the last five months.  On the other hand, as recently as February, VMW’s stock was right around the $142.50 price the company agreed to sell itself at today, so does that indicate that management expects limited upside for the industry going forward?

It’s a big morning for economic data with revised GDP for Q1 (revised lower), Personal Consumption (higher than expected), PCE (lower than expected), and Jobless Claims (initial lower than expected, continuing higher) all just released at 8:30.  Later on this morning, Pending Home Sales and the KC Fed manufacturing report will be released at 10 AM.

In today’s Morning Lineup, we recap morning earnings reports (pg 4), overnight central bank actions (pg 4), the latest economic data out of Asia and Europe (pg 5), and a lot more.

The Energy sector hit another new 52-week high yesterday further cementing its lead as the top-performing sector in the S&P 500.  Given the rally over the last year, it’s pretty hard to believe that the Energy sector is still more than 10% below its record high back in 2014.

Given the rally in Energy, the sector’s relative strength has made a significant turnaround this year.  After eight years of near-constant underperformance, the recent outperformance has taken its relative strength to levels not seen in three years.
