“A Sinking Feeling” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/12/2018

US stocks sank today, with all three major indices dropping throughout the day and eventually ending solidly in the red by the close of trade. The S&P 500 lost 1.97%, and the Nasdaq tumbled 2.78%. The Dow had dropped 2.32% by the end of the session.

With the drop in the markets today, our investment in VelocityShares Daily 2x VIX ST ETN (TVIX) closed today at $44.15 representing a whopping +16.12% increase from Friday’s close.  The TVIX investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the returns of twice (2x) the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures index. The index was designed to provide investors with exposure to one or more maturities of futures contracts on the VIX, which reflects implied volatility of the S&P 500 Index at various points along the volatility forward curve. The ETNs are linked to a multiple (2x) of the daily return of the index and do not represent an investment in the VIX.

Components of the Dow were down nearly across the board, with some companies seeing especially large losses. Goldman Sachs (GS) saw the biggest drop today as it plummeted 7.46%. Apple (APPL) wasn’t too far behind with a loss of 5.04% after reports from one of its parts suppliers indicated there may be decreasing demand. The Home Depot (HD) saw shares tumble 3.53%.

While not a component of the Dow, Atossa Genetics didn’t fare any better as it took losses of 5.51% today.

Remember that typically when there is seeling to this degree that extreme value opportunities present themselves throughout as indiscriminate selling seems to take all down. Try to stay clear-headed throughout this situation & when this happens.

Outside the stock market, oil prices continued their prolonged drop today despite Saudi Arabia’s announcement that it will slash exports by 500,000 barrels per day in December. This marks the eleventh session in a row that oil prices have declined.

President Trump seems to have taken credit for these declines in price of oil  and stated “If you look at oil prices, they’ve come down very substantially over the last couple of months. That’s because of me. Because you have a monopoly called OPEC…and I don’t like that monopoly.”

“An Eye on Tomorrow” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/5/2018

Stocks ended the day mixed on Monday as voters prepare to hit the polls on Election Day and investors kept an eye on tomorrow’s events. The results of this election may lead to significant changes in Congress, and this uncertainty was paralleled in the market today. The S&P 500 managed to gain 0.56% (15.26 points) and the Dow rose 0.76% (190.87 points) by the end of trade. On the other hand, the Nasdaq slipped into the red with losses of 0.38% (28.14 points).

Most components of the Dow saw moderate gains today, with IBM’s (IBM) gains of 3.80% and Chevron’s (CVX) increase of 3.67% leading the way. Apple (AAPL) continued to drag down the market today as it slipped a further 2.84%. Apart from the Dow, Atossa Genetics (ATOS) also saw slight gains of 0.75%.

If past patterns are any indication, there will likely be an upward tick in the market no matter the outcome of tomorrow’s election – but just how big that rally will be is an open question. Thomas Lee, an analyst with Fundstrat Global Advisors, has looked at market data going back to 1936 to help predict what may happen. According to his research, the market gains on average 1.9% in the following year if control of the House trades hands, but if the current party retains a majority that average increases to 14.3%.

With the current volatility of the markets, though, there could be negative consequences if the outcome of the election remains uncertain for any period of time. Lori Calvasina, with RBC Captial, pointed to the 2000 election where the outcomes were uncertain for nearly a month. “At that time, the equity market was already tumbling, and it continued to fall while the results were being determined.”

Apple Reports Fourth Quarter

Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to “leaving the world better than they found it.”

Apple reported its fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 financial results last week. Apple reported a fourth-quarter revenue of $62.9 billion, which was a 20 percent increase compared to the fourth quarter of the previous year. The company surpassed estimates that called for $2.838 per share with $2.91.

Service revenues increased 27 percent year-over-year for an all-time best of $10 billion, and international sales made up 61 percent of the fourth quarter revenue.

The company’s board of directors declared its cash dividend of $0.73 per share of common stock. The dividend will be payable November 15, 2018, to those shareholders of record at the close of business on November 12, 2018.

We’re thrilled to report another record-breaking quarter that caps a tremendous fiscal 2018, the year in which we shipped our 2 billionth iOS device, celebrated the 10th anniversary of the App Store and achieved the strongest revenue and earnings in Apple’s history. Over the past two months, we’ve delivered huge advancements for our customers through new versions of iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac as well as our four operating systems, and we enter the holiday season with our strongest lineup of products and services ever.” -Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO

“Broken” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/2/2018

The three-day rally begun on Tuesday was officially broken today as the market was dragged down by underperforming tech stocks. The Nasdaq slid 1.04% (114.59 points) while the S&P 500 dropped 0.65% (17.96 points). The Dow also fell to end the day with losses of 0.45% (114.59 points).

While most of the Dow’s components saw moderate losses today, there were some exceptions. Apple (APPL), for one, plunged 6.63% during the day. In the other direction, there was Chevron (CVX) with gains of 3.20% and Exxon Mobil (XOM) which reported increases of 1.59%. Seattle-based biotech firm Atossa Genetics (ATOS) closed Friday’s trading session flat at $1.33 after moving up to $1.37.

Tech stocks were the main culprits for weighing down the markets. This was exemplified by Apple’s losses mentioned above, despite its mostly positive quarterly report released yesterday. Brian Belski of BMO Capital Markets remains unconcerned by October’s overall volatility, let alone today’s losses. He stated, “Indeed, positive fundamentals and steady macro data remain in place, thereby providing investors with one of the best buying opportunities in several months. Thanks, October.”

“Starting the Month Off Right but…” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/1/2018

US stocks started November off strong as all three major indices once again closed the day higher. The S&P 500’s gains of 1.05% (28.55 points) today marking the first time since September that it has risen for three days in a row. The Nasdaq ended the day with gains of 1.75% (128.16 points) while the Dow rose 1.03% (258.94 points).

Overall, individual components of the Dow fared well. Dow DuPont (DWDP) had a particularly impressive day as shares soared 8.07%. Companies like Intel (INTC), which saw increases of 2.86%, may not have seen spikes like that of DuPont but nonetheless were able to post some respectable gains. A few components, though, had less luck. McDonald’s (MCD) shares slipped 1.14% as trade ended. Apart from the Dow, Atossa Genetics (ATOS) also saw increases of 1.53%.

Apple (APPL) released its fourth-quarter report today showing mixed results. iPhone sales came in nearly 2 million short of what had been predicted (only 48.4 million were sold), but earnings of $2.91 per share on revenue of $62.9 billion exceeded analysts expectations. Although they may have sold fewer phones than expected, the average selling price per phone increased to $793. Shares ended today up 1.54% at $222.22/share but are trading down sizably in the aftermarket currently at $207.89 -14.33 (-6.45%). With Apple being a significant component of the Dow 30 & other indices I would expect that markets will be down tomorrow. The TVIX is trading at $47.40 +1.59 (+3.47%) in the aftermarket.

“Monday” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 10/15/2018

After a day of ups and downs, stocks ended on Monday in the red. The Nasdaq dropped 0.88% (66.15 points), and as trading closed the S&P 500 slipped 0.59% (16.34 points). At the end of the day, the Dow reported losses of 0.35% (89.44 points). As was the case last week, tech stocks led in declines for the day.
Results were mixed for components of the Dow with some companies posting gains, such as Procter & Gamble’s (PG) 1.35% increase. Others saw losses such as Cisco’s (CSCO) 2.28% fall and Apple’s (AAPL) 2.14% slide. Atossa Genetics (ATOS) did quite well today with an increase of +4.08%. Today’s declines come after a week of plummeting stocks and Friday’s brief uptick in prices. With increases in trade tension and rising interest rates, experts offer mixed opinions on what exactly is to blame for last week’s sell-off and the continued decrease today.
We think that the rise in interest rates and the future related uncertainty surrounding interest rate levels have had a significant influence on the recent increase  in volatility in the markets and may continue to do so….What do you think? ….Please share your thoughts with us about this subject at inquiries@vistapglobal.com.

3 Universities Add Student ID’s to Apple’s Wallet

Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to “leaving the world better than they found it.”

Recently, the students of Duke University, University of Alabama, and the University of Oklahoma have added their student ID card to Apple Wallet. Instead of carrying around their issued student ID, they can now just use their iPhone or Apple Watch to get around campus and use it to pay for laundry, coffee, food, and even to get into the dorms, the library, and the on-campus gym.

Students with iPhone or Apple Watches on these campuses can leave their wallets behind and no longer have to remember to take it everywhere with them on campus. The digital ID just needs to be held near the reader where physical student ID cards are accepted.

Other universities expected to add its student IDs to Apple’s Wallet by the end of the school year include Johns Hopkins, Santa Clara, and Temple.

Learn more about Apple and track its ongoing progress at Vista Partners Apple (AAPL) Coverage Page.
