STATE OF THE MARKETS
Safe-haven flows continue to dominate markets as rising Covid-19 cases send equities and treasury yield lower. US 10 year note yielded lower 1.03% than it was a year ago as markets scrambled for safe haven in the wake of rising corona cases worldwide that could jeopardize economic recovery. Uncertainties in the US election results is also driving the risk-off mood, though a little more optimistic in the medium term outlook. Energy, financial, real estate and industrials sectors were the worst hit, with more than 1% down; while consumers, communication and IT were major beneficiaries.
Crude tried to stage a rally but remained under pressure below $40/barrel as news hit the wire that Hurricane Zeta would disrupt supply in the Gulf of Mexico. Block orders of close to 2,000 contracts may see price remain supported for a while. Gold closed higher and remain well bid above $1,900/oz.

OUR PICK – CISCO
Regardless of who wins the US election, technology remain as the key driver for growth. We long $CSCO. If you love income stocks, you’ll love Cisco (CSCO, NASDAQ) that is paying higher dividend than markets. Discounted cash flow valuation is showing the company is 43% under it’s fair value. The price suffer a setback in the heat of the pandemic, but have rallied since and now at a juncture of picking up new orders. We believe $CSCO as a network equipment manufacturer is poised to benefit from 5G growth as well as the trend in working from home.
