12:00 TUESDAY – Stock Market Report #212 – 6/20/23

by Robert Holman |

STOCK MARKET RATING … 5.0 (0-4 bearish, 5 neutral, 6-10 bullish). No change. Recently the market has been moving up on optimistic inflation and interest rates assumptions.

TD Ameritrade Securities says “Our recession probability model indicates there is an 81% probability of a recession within the next 12 months. The current market dynamic looks overly optimistic.”

Currently there is a ‘soft landing’ consensus, but some believe that it will be worse. We go with the consensus for now.

What happens with stock prices from here? The majority opinion would be for a market that moves lower in expectation of the consensus view coming about, but quickly begins to rise as the recessive numbers are actually realized. That’s because the market moves on future expectations rather than on actual results.

Inflation has come down somewhat, but has not been broken, so rates could go up as much as another 100 basis points (1%, from 5 - 5.25% to 6 - 6.25%).

The WSJ reports that the Chinese military is in Cuba, where the Chinese are constructing a joint training facility with the Cuban military.
