Jitters over inflation, provide and labor however, the bull case remains to be intact

After an encouraging run of bulge-bracket financial institution outcomes that kicked off third quarter (Q3) earnings, this week’s earnings — which embody Netflix (NFLX) and Tesla (TSLA) — can be an acid take a look at for a skittish market that’s nonetheless very a lot inclined to check its upside.

However, because the saying goes, there’s nothing to concern however concern itself. And there are actually warning indicators flaring in every single place, main some Wall Road observers to specific doubts concerning the present quarter and the outlook for 2022 (which, for these conserving rating at house, is lower than three months away).

In between golf rounds this weekend, the irrepressible Brian Sozzi enumerated a number of explanation why shares are instantly inclined to rally, even with fears related to stagflation, provide chain and labor shortages on excessive boil. It might have one thing to do with the truth that — barring disagreeable surprises from the maker of “Squid Sport” or the Home that Elon Musk constructed — Q3 outcomes are nonetheless largely stunning to the upside.

To make certain, there are nonetheless loads of causes for concern. As if traders wanted any reminders about COVID-19, Disney (DIS) mentioned on Monday that it was reshuffling its 2022 slate of flicks, with the Delta variant’s influence on film visitors (and the comparatively weak exhibiting of “No Time to Die”) possible elements.

Whereas customers would possibly nonetheless be nervous about attending motion pictures in individual, or are at the least extra comfy streaming from house, different information suggests they’re nonetheless spending on nearly the whole lot in sight.

Open wallets are contributing to what Jason Draho, head of asset allocation Americas at UBS, just lately referred to as a “constructive mixture demand shock” that retains the bullish case for markets firmly intact.

“The surge in demand for items throughout the pandemic has been a giant issue pushing inflation larger. However this demand shock may additionally assist the financial system get away of the secular stagnation regime of the prior decade,” Draho wrote in an evaluation final week.

“One clarification for this regime is that mixture demand was too low and financial savings too excessive, conserving progress, inflation, and charges all low. A constructive demand shock might spur a virtuous cycle of recent funding and consumption that permits the financial system to interrupt out of this regime,” he added.
