OUR PICK – No New Pick

No new pick going into the weekend. At this point in time, investors are weighing better than expected economic data, global covid delta variant spread and what the Federal Reserve will do at next week’s FOMC. So far we see investors are buying the dips in equities but breadth isn’t supporting higher prices due to persistent outflows. Corporate buybacks may save some stocks, but not all companies could afford a buyback in stretched valuation markets. Have a good weekend!

Trades updates:  

Equities: Currently we are holding 8 stocks – 7 longs and 1 short – and have approached maximum equities exposure. We are long AUY with dividends yielding 2.93%, T at 7.54% yields and COG yielding 2.27%. CLVS is currently 22% overvalued with -7.19 z-score but trading central projects a rebound towards 5.62-5.87 where we will most likely close our positions. We remain bullish with VIPS (42% undervalued with 5.59 z-score), GT (47% undervalued with 1.28 z-score) and CRON (16% undervalued with 9.18 z-score) while bearish GE (25% overvalued with 1.36 z-score).

FX & Commodities: We have closed GBP/USD, NZD/USD has reached short term TP1, and USD/CAD remains bullish and active.
