On Mondays, we release our Weekly Trader in which we outline key themes driving market sentiment, a review on critical developments within our preferred sectors, equities commentary and market-moving stories to start the week. Our in-house Investment Committee meets on a weekly basis to craft this strategy, aimed at allowing our clients to dynamically position portfolios and to take advantage of market developments.
16/07/2018 – Market View: Ocado, UnitedHealth Group, Paypal, Microsoft
There’s a 20% earnings growth expected for Q2 but it will be dispersed across sectors. Tech and Materials are two of the sectors we expect to outperform. Utilities and Real Estate look set to be the laggards. US Banks’ earnings underwhelming on the loan growth side.
- Ocado – best model in segment but major recent rally bearish in the short term
- UnitedHealth Group – Both a cyclical and secular story
- Microsoft – combining tech growth with legacy business
- PayPal – Expecting an earnings beat this week
