Markets climb to new highs in record week

Again, materials led and energy lagged on the TSX. In fact, natural resources and commodities had a good Friday. Among the big gainers were GoEasy up 8.8%, Canfor 7.13%, Cascades 5.14% and Western Forest Products 4.83%. Losing ground were Hudbay Minerals at -6.26%, Lightspeed -5.88% and Vermilion Energy -4.05%. Both the price of WTI and WCS slipped more than 0.5% by the close to limit the TSX’s’s overall gains. Investors shrugged off gloomy news about the Covid situation in Canada, in particular Ontario.

In contrast, America continues to vaccinate and reopen. On Wall Street, the Dow sector showed gains, apart from energy and a flat performance in tech. In the home-building sector, DR Horton rose 3.57% and Sherwin Williams gained 3.8%. Bank earnings continued to hit home runs, but after Morgan Stanley reported record Q1 results in earnings and revenues, the stock sold off during the session to close -2.76%. The U.S. 10-yield inched up to 1.585%, though Bitcoin slipped 2.34%.

Markets soar on strong earnings, optimism

There was green across screens Thursday as American bank earnings continued to impress as the U.S. continues to reopen. Both cyclical and growth names surged in Toronto and New York. The Dow climbed 0.9% to break 34,000 while the S&P rose 1.11% to a new closing high. Similarly, the TSX advanced 0.78% to make a new high. However, tech led the rally as the Nasdaq jumped 1.31% and traded consistently high all day.

Again, the semis enjoyed a bonanza as Nvidia soared 5.63% and AMD 5.68%, while Adobe gained 2.47% and Alphabet 1.93%. Beyond tech, UnitedHealth popped 3.83%, BioNTech 6.12% and Molson Coors 3.5% to show that the buying was broad-based. Citigroup and Bank of America both beat earnings, but sold off after the initial euphiora to finish -0.51% and -2.86%.

Gold climbed 1.6% which helped lift the TSX. By far, minerals were the strongest sector as Copper Mountain Mining soared 7.74%, Capstone Mining 7.59% and Hudbay Minerals 6.68%. Beyond rocks, Shopify rallied 2.42% and Cargojet 2.38%. Energy was the only sector down as WTI added 0.3% but the price of WCS was flat.

Gold. Stock price moves as the underlying commodity moves. Gold has pulled back, and the USD should start strengthening, which also works against gold prices. She has no money in the sector right now. She prefers producers with very little political risk.
