This week's insights from Simplicity Wealth's

Week In Review

In a holiday-shortened week, investors still had plenty of economic data to ponder. U.S retail sales came in much weaker than expected, up 0.1% in May, and created some concern regarding the strength of consumer spending. The latest updates on the housing market were also worrisome. Existing home sales and housing starts both declined in May, suggesting slower economic growth and higher future unemployment. The one bright spot during the week was the report on industrial production, up 0.9% in May, with strong gains in manufacturing and the fabrication of technology equipment. The mixed readings and growing evidence of declining economic activity tilted momentum in the markets’ favor, as the prospect of subsiding inflation sent U.S. Treasury yields lower and the broader equity markets higher. The S&P 500 briefly topped the 5,500 level but profit-taking in NVIDIA caused it to falter. The index still closed up +0.6%.

Style Box Returns

This Week

Ardent Fed watchers will be able to scrutinize “Fedspeak” from around the globe as no less than six Fed presidents will prognosticate about the economy from different countries, but the latest inflation update will be the primary catalyst for market sentiment. The Personal Consumption Expenditures (“PCE”) price index will be released on Friday and could hasten the single rate cut forecasted for this year if inflation decelerates.

Portfolio Themes

The Federal Reserve has stated that interest rates are on hold for now. That is good news for bond investors, as the historical record suggests that higher starting yields have a strong correlation to future performance. In fact, a review of 5-year rolling periods over the last 48 years shows that 88% of the forward total return of the Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Index was explained by the starting yield.3 Currently, bond yields far exceed the 10-year pre-COVID averages. A focus on yield seems prudent. Simplicity can offer bespoke bond portfolios that may exploit current yield benefits.
