Navellier & Associates - "War Fever" Spooks Nervous Investors

Posted by Michael J. O'Connor | CWS®, Vice President Investments

September 4, 2013

Louis Navellier discusses the latest impact that the Syrian "war fever" is having on the US and other markets around the globe.

"The S&P 500 fell 1.84% last week and 3.13% in August. The Dow fell 4.45% in August. On Friday, Blackrock reported thatAugust was its biggest month for ETF withdrawals in more than three years (since January 2010), with $16.1 billion inredemptions through last Thursday. The S&P 500 SPDR alone had $13 billion in outflows. These withdrawals will likely causethe strength and breadth of the market to deteriorate, but it could also increase demand for many higher-quality stocks."

Navellier - "Bernanke Bounce" Lifted Market to New Highs

July 17, 2013
Louis Navellier looks at Ben Bernanke's comments and their subsequent affect on the markets. "The S&P rose 40 points (+2.96%) last week, reaching a new closing high above 1680. The biggest gain came Thursday, following a series of positive economic indicators and Ben Bernanke’s dramatic change of heart on U.S. monetary policy. This week, second-quarter earnings announcement season will begin in earnest. Currently, analyst expectations for second quarter sales and earnings are so downbeat that any positive surprises will likely result in a continued rise to yet more new market highs."

Navellier & Associates - Great Rotation from Bonds to Stocks

July 3, 2013
Money manager Louis Navellier gives his thoughts on Bernanke's latest statements regarding quantitative easing and the subsequent reactions of the market and economists. "For the first half of 2013, the Dow rose 13.8%, NASDAQ +12.7%, and the S&P 500 +12.6%, marking the best first half since 1999, the last of five consecutive years of double-digit annual gains. Now, with U.S. Treasury bond yields shooting up so rapidly, it appears we’re finally seeing the start of a rotation from bond funds into equity funds, reminding me of a similar situation in 1994 when bond yields rose by 245 basis points, launching the most explosive phase of the 1990s stock bull market. Could it happen again?" Download Navellier's Full Commentary Here Get Free Research Reports on Navellier & Associates [+] Read More

Navellier & Associates - Falling Dollar Good for Stocks?

June 17, 2013
Louis Navellier discusses why he believes that a falling dollar is usually good for stocks. "The S&P 500 fell 1% last week, but many foreign stock markets, especially in Asia, were hit harder than that. Japan’s Nikkei plunged 6.4% on Thursday, entering official bear market territory, falling 20% from its May peak. Foreign investors are also unloading U.S. Treasury bonds in record amounts, so it appears that one of the safest havens in the coming months might very well be the U.S. stock market."

Navellier & Associates - Jobs and the Economy Reflect Modest Growth

June 11, 2013
Louis Navellier looks at the most recent jobs report and the value of the dollar, which has finally fallen after rising too far, too fast. "The S&P 500 fell 2.9% from Tuesday to Thursday morning last week before recovering to post a modest 0.8% gain for the week. The market liked the Friday jobs report, even though it was merely “OK” (with 175,000 new jobs). It was a “Goldilocks” figure, according to analysts – neither too hot nor too cold – but the good news for stock market investors is that this and many other signs of slower economic growth will likely encourage the Fed to continue its policy of quantitative easing for the time being."
