Stock Opinions by Timothy Seymour

COMMENT
IF the economy is expanding, why are small caps underperforming? He uses the IWM as a proxy or hedge to emerging markets. IWM is in purgatory since rates peaked in the spring. No, IWM isn't falling off a cliff, but the future of smallcaps is unknown.

COMMENT
USD outlook It is THE most important chart, especially when the Fed is in play. June 2014 into mid 2015 saw a 25% move in the USD and it destroyed some asset classes, though okay for equities. What will the USD when the Fed offers more direction? The USD is correlated with volatility.

He's excited by Apple's role in healthcare, but it won't move the needle. It's at new highs today and picking up momentum. Services won't move it further, but the old-fashioned iPhone will.

BUY
Ford announces production cuts due to ongoing semiconductor shortage How often do we need to hear the news of a chip shortage hitting profitable, well-run companies? The valuation is great and so is their positioning. Car demand won't go away. Investors need to be patient. This is an amazing opportunity.

COMMENT
If the economy is expanding now, this could be a great economic opening, so why are small caps underperforming? He uses the IWM as a proxy and sometimes a hedge to emerging markets, because EM growth has been often tied to U.S. small-cap growth. IWM is in purgatory ever since rates peaked in the spring. No, IWM isn't falling off a cliff now and there could be re-acceleration, but the future of smallcaps is unknown.

It surged today. The Chinese government won't let up on this company, but they send their message to these Chinese tech companies and investors, and the fines were paid. BABA has $85 billion in cash and will likely make another payment. With BABA, raise the risk level and lower your price target amid downgrades. Historically, China proves they will benefit their big companies and that their markets are wide open, but they have lain a heaver hand on BABA. He'd still be cautious.

The CEO is starting to put her stamp on the company, supporting their workers. They announced today they will raise wages, and shares rallied. Let's see them get into e-commerce and battling Amazon.

COMMENT
September outlook Markets had a hot August while the VIX slid. Smooth sailing? No. Banks offer hybrid growth + value, though yields have pulled back in recent days. With an OPEC+ meeting coming up, oil looks promising. He's cautious about positioning. The Nasdaq has outperformed the S&P by 8% in the last 3 months, so people are questioning where growth will be this fall.

GM is expanding its massive recall of its Bolt e-car. Stock is down 3% after hours. He's not happy with this news or the 24% move down going into this news, mostly due to the semis shortage hitting the car industry. GM's move into EV and self-driving cars--the Bolt is not a flagship part of this. The recall costs are significant, yes. GM has a track record of reducing costs especially in losing businesses in Europe and U.S, and yet generate huge cash flow. It's frustrating that the market punishes GM on news like this, but doesn't reward it for giving fantastic earnings. GM trades at 8x earnings.

BUY
The USD is at 9-month highs and there are fears of a housing bubble in China. Still buy emerging markets? He loves EM, so he hates to see what's happening in China. So, look at India instead. India boasts the best demographics, arguably, and there's a major move into EV technology, fintech and green businesses. The rupee is holding on against the USD. The balance of payments is also strong. stocks. INDA continues to make fresh highs. Blame the move in China to their regulators He hopes China is playing the long long game; the short game has been frustrating. Southeast Asia is very resilient. India is not that dependent on China and is self-reliant.

IBM continues to be slow. They bought Red Hat, but RH faces a lot of competition. Tuck-in acquisitions continue this year, but some concern him. They report Monday.
