Can the squeeze be complete without “risky” rally?
Risky” factors (e.g. high vol, low profitability, small cap, high earnings variability, etc) stopped underperforming in mid-May, but have yet to see a recovery that has often followed similar drawdowns (even if it was just a bear market rally). Mega-cap growth: room to re-lever Macro mavens shorter equities now than at height of COVID
Chart shows global macro HF beta to MSCI world equities. The interpretation would be that macro HFs are shorter equities now than any time in the past 2.5 years. With this macro back-drop, what’s the big worry?
The very short summary from GS Macro on the US economic outlook make you wonder where all the fear comes from in the investment community. GS: “In the US, we expect Q4/Q4 growth to slow to 0.4% in 2022, driven by a large fiscal drag and a negative impulse from tighter financial conditions. We see a 30% probability of entering a recession over the next year and nearly even odds at a two-year horizon. We expect core PCE inflation to fall to 4.4% by end-2022, although further supply chain disruptions, stronger wage growth, or firmer shelter inflation could keep inflation somewhat higher for longer”
Cloud SaaS’ wild ride Bernstein: Sentiment signalling short-term pain followed by long-term gains for equities
Bernstein’s sentiment signals are currently giving mixed messages. Bernstein: “The short-term sentiment indicator is currently neutral, and has not yet seen capitulation in outflows from equity funds. In fact outflows, excluding Europe, have only just begun. Our longer-term equity sentiment indicator is at extreme pessimistic levels which suggests […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
