This past week was better that it might seem for the stock markets which were affected by the weakness in the technology sector. Because of the relative weight of the FAANG stocks the performance of main indices was dragged down by their underperformance. The Nasdaq and the S&P500 were down 0.6% and 0.7%, respectively, while the Dow, which does not feature as many tech stocks as the two other main US indices, was basically flat.

One can be amused by the IPO frenzy that is roaming the markets of late, suffice to consider this week’s debut of $SNOW, but should thread very carefully when investing in them. Most of the time these stocks are very volatile and their track record is either not there, or comes from quarters preceding the IPO in which the company did not have to follow the stringent reporting requirements set by the SEC: be careful out there, and invest responsibly !

In the meantime many headlines keep the market volatile, from the premature death of US Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg (suggest you listen to Michael Moore’s latest Rumble podcast) to Democratic-party nominee Joe Biden desperately seeking latino votes in swing states and the rising number of Covid-19 cases globally which is causing another round of lockdowns in some European countries. Despite this, the European Stoxx index was up 0.3% this week, while Italy’s stock market lagged behind, and was down 1.5%.

No purchases this week for our RI portfolio but I am itching for new buys! I just don’t trust the environment at the minute and especially these volatility levels. Patience is a virtue and that’s especially true for responsible investors. On my watchlist are stocks like $DQ (energy), $DPW.DE (courier services), and $AMWL (telemedicine).

Happy Saturday from Copenhagen whose stock market continues to push higher. After a negative week, in the last 5 days the OMX index rose by 2.1% to levels now very close to all time highs. The European stock markets in general had a very good week, with the Stoxx index up 1.7% and the Italian FTSEMIB growing by 2.2%. As our portfolio consists in European stocks for 65%, it is not surprising that we have had a great week ourselves with a 2.3% increase versus a market performance of 0.4%.

The US stock markets were down, especially the Nasdaq which fell by 4%. The technology sector was the laggard and yet our two tech stocks, $GRUB and $TCEHY outperformed the Nasdaq which is a sign of their relative strength. After a long period which started in late March when it almost seemed that it didn’t matter which stock investors decided to buy we are now back to a market of stocks and picking the right one will be key.

There were several good news of our Italian stocks: Inwit and Raiway rose by 9.1 and 7.5%, respectively. On the automotive side, $UG.PA continues its rise: with this week’s 6.1% increase it is up 17% since my buy alert. Consumer discretionary also had a good week, especially in the luxury sector as the 3.4% weekly increase of $MC.PA demonstrated. It was a negative week for the bank sector and our two positions weren’t immune: it will be interesting to see if this downward trend continues in which case we will have to pull the plug.

I continue to like lots of candidate stocks to add to our portfolio, such as $NOW, $QCOM or $ZS but I would like to see the volatility reduce before we make our next buys. As always I will send a Buy Alert on this website and on Twitter if the time is right.

At the beginning of the week the stock markets kept going higher as if there was no tomorrow but on Thursday they came to a screeching halt. More importantly, the Friday morning rally did not last long and the week ended with a second consecutive down day. I cannot even remember when we had two red days in a row last time !

While nobody knows what happens next, with the upcoming US presidential election and economies around the world still struggling to pick up, I cannot see governments stopping the support of the stock markets with more “propping” policies. Analysts are raising S&P500 quarterly earnings estimates for the first time since Q2 2018, Factset reports. Only time will tell and we will be quick in raising cash if the downtrend continues.

Despite the end of week selloff the Dow and the S&P500 managed to pull off a nominal increase of 0.24 and 0.16%, respectively, whereas the Nasdaq fell 1.6%. The European stock markets had a similar decline with the Stoxx down by 1.25%; the FTSEMIB retraced by 1.49% and the Copenhagen Nasdaq fell by 2.5%. The Danish stock market currently has a whopping P/E of 32.8 which is even higher than that of the S&P500 which stands at 30.5.

No changes to our portfolio this week. For the second week in a row our best performer was $SYF which is up 23.2% since we bought it and has now overtaken $GRUB. Car-maker UG.PA had a great week and was up 3.8%. Our other tech stock $TCEHY fell 4.7% but the fundamentals remain intact.

On my watchlist there are stocks like $VEEV, $QCOM and $GOOG. This recent selloff can present an opportunity for shopping at more reasonable prices.

Just when one might have started thinking that the FED was running out of ideas to sustain the growth in the stock market, Jay Powell announced an unprecedented change to the inflation policy from 2% as a goal to 2% on average as the target. Not that inflation has gone up during years of balance sheet expansion, including in the EU, but it does provide more room should it pick up and pass the 2% mark. That news depreciated the dollar even further relative to the euro.

In more recent news, Japan was hit by the sad news of their long-standing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announcing to step down due to illness after 8 years of service and one year before the natural end of his term. This exerted pressure on the Japanese stock market as it can be seen from the drop the $EWJ ETF had on Thursday. It will be interesting to see whether his successor will continue to embrace the so-called “Abenomics” and maintain the stability Abe achieved by ending a streak of several predecessors who only lasted 1 year on average as PMs of Japan.

The US stock markets have had an impressive week with the three main indices all closing 2%+ higher. Europe had a good week as the Stoxx index moved 1.1% higher but the national stock markets performance varied: for example Italy was up 0.7% while Denmark was down 0.3%.

No changes to our portfolio this week. Our best performer was $SYF which gapped 7.8% higher, followed by one of our two banks stocks, $BK, which grew by 5.1%. $GRUB fell 4.4%, however that’s not concerning given how much it has run over the past weeks.

On my watchlist there are stocks like $WDAY, $QCOM and inverse ETFs such as $SQQQ.

This is a market of contrasts. On the one hand we have increasing Covid-19 numbers all over the world and particularly in Europe where infection cases are going back to April-May levels, and on the other several bullish signals, the most recent one to note being the existing house sales in the US which grew by 25% in July – a rate not seen since 2006.

In the meantime the candidacies of Joe Biden and of his prospective VP Kamala Harris have been formalised at the Democratic Convention and the US stock market did not have a negative reaction. In the past there used to be many articles about how a Democratic government would be unwelcome for corporate America whereas positions seems to be more open to a leadership alternative to Trump of late.

It was a mixed week for the stock market: the MSCI World was flat, Europe was down 1.8% (with Italy loosing 2.42% and the Nasdaq Copenhagen a meager 0.12%) and the US indices were up with the S&P500 growing by 0.7% and the Nasdaq by a whopping 2.7%, whereas the Dow ended the week flat. The Dollar recovered about 0.58% over the Euro.

We have made one purchase on the RI portfolio this week, a relatively new ETF which invests in e-commerce while shorting the bricks & mortar sector. It is basically a combination of two other ETFs I have watched (and still own in another portfolio), $IBUY and $EMTY, and goes by the ticker of $CLIX. Thanks to its long and short positions it adds a lot of alpha to a signle investment: it is up 87% YTD, widely outperforming all the US stock market indices.

Our $SQQQ position hit the SL price at the beginning of the week but I expect that it is more of an arrivederci for this hedge. $TCEHY gapped 7% higher and looks like a break-out is around the corner. With gold recovering most of last week’s losses, $NEM was up 2.7%. On our watchlist we have stocks like $HUBS, $JD and $CSGP.

Another positive week for the global stock markets with Europe over-performing the US. The Italian stock market jumped almost 5% while the Stoxx index gapped 2.77% higher. The Dow and the S&P500 were up 2 and 1%, respectively. The Nasdaq was very quiet and closed marginally higher.

There are increasing calls from investment banks for a potential future over-performance of the Stoxx versus the US Stock Markets which have run a lot: YTD, the S&P500 is up 4.7% while the Stoxx index is down 10% and the FTSE MIB lags behind with a -13,82%. There are exceptions within Europe: for example the Danish stock market being up 15% YTD and currently has a P/E of 31. With our portfolio consisting of European stocks for 68% at present, we are geared to benefit from a possible mid-term rise of the European stocks.

We have had 3 winners this week as $SYF , WeBuild and Elica rose between 5% and 7%. This week’s sell off in gold has negatively impacted on $NEM , down 7%, however this precious metal is expected to rise further in the near future.

$TCEHY continues to be hit by anti-China US policies and, more recently, by the dispute between $AAPL and $GOOG vs Epic Games, the company behind popular video game Fortnite in which Tencent has a stake.

Two of our positions hit the SL price, namely $SCO and $GILD. For the latter it might have just been bad timing as the fundamentals and the valuation remains strong: we might get back in if the earnings continue to grow and the technicals suggest an entry point.

Welcome to the ever rising stock market era where nothing that used to matter really matters anymore. One could call it state capitalism.

Another week of growth across the board with the US markets leading the push towards ATHs. With the US presidential election now just 90 days away, chances are that more stimulus and more bubble blowing policies will be implemented. That’s all well and good in the short term, but will happen in the long term ? If momentum is dictating the current market direction, at some point valuations will matter, one would think.

In the meantime our portfolio was basically flat this week due to a couple stinkers, namely $TCEHY -which has been affected by Trump’s attack to Chinese stocks- and Italian Contractor WeBuild which has now dropped below 1.1€ and is very close to my line in the sand. On the positive side, $GRUB becomes our first position to pass the 30% mark, a capital appreciation threshold I use to determine when to have take profit (TP) ready: more on this in future weekly updates.

We have sold our position on $IMA.MI on Monday with a nice +14% profit in just one week ! No other changes to the portfolio this week but there are many stocks on my watchlist, such as $CSPG, $SMSFT and $AMAT.

From this week onwards you will see all the stop loss (SL) prices which have been defined so far. A general rule I follow is to consider a 7 to 10% loss to determine the SL price depending on whether it is a divided stock or not and on the general market performance. The SL price increases if the investment relates to a leveraged ETF. And with every rule, there are always exceptions of course !
