Should stock-market investors freak out over an ‘earnings recession’ These charts say no

Friday 15:26 GMT

The potential for a 2019 earnings recession — or two consecutive quarters or more of year-over corporate earnings declines—is providing another source of worry for investors uncertain about the durability of the stock market’s rebound from a December rout.

Instead, the S&P 500 posted an average gain of 3.9% in the three months ahead of the first quarterly earnings fall, and rose by an average 6.6% and 8.5%, respectively, in the six- and 12-month periods, with those returns even higher when economic recessions are taken out of the mix, Belski said.

Cisco shows ‘fundamental resiliency’ as stock climbs after earnings

Friday 15:26 GMT

Don’t miss: Cisco stares down geopolitical unrest and cloud downturn, and stock emerges higher. Resilience was also a theme for J.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee, who has an overweight rating on Cisco and raised his price target to $60 from $59.. “Cisco’s F2Q earnings and F3Q outlook can be broadly characterized as modestly better than expected, although what makes it stand out is the resilience of the performance despite consistent concerns relative to macro growth; marking a significant change for a stock that was once considered a bellwether for the industry and still trades at a discount to the overall market multiple,” Chatterjee said, adding that growth momentum in applications and security sales underscored the success of Cisco acquisition strategy such as the company’s acquisition of Duo Security last year. FBN Securities analyst Shebly Seyrafi said that the company’s latest numbers showed “more good than bad,” given strong indications in switching, wireless, applications, and security.

Kicking yourself for missing the recent rally Here are 5 reasons you shouldn’t

Thursday 17:15 GMT

Wall Street experts argued there were some good reasons: Economic slowdowns in China and Europe, rising interest rates, trade war fears, looming conflicts between a Democratic Congress and President Trump, and weaker corporate earnings.

“One of the most common rhetorical bulwarks in the defense of buy and hold investing is to demonstrate the effects of missing the best 10 days in the market, and how that would affect the compounded return to investors,” Cambria Investments manager Meb Faber pointed out in a recent research paper. But, he warns, “This is perhaps one of the most misleading statistics in our profession.”
