Nothing Can Take the Stock Market Off Its Record Run


Septembers arrival usually means fresh school supplies and investment ideas, but for now Wall Street is expecting more of the sameand that may not be a bad thing.

The S&P 500 is up 21% this year and while few on the Street expect that it can continue climbing at such a rapid pace for the last four months of the year, theres little reason to doubt that stocks will continue marching on despite what happens elsewhere in the world.

Need proof? Over the past week, much of the East Coast was pummeled by the remnants of Hurricane Ida. Many lost their homes and others remain without power and yet stock indexes notched new highs.

Then on Friday, the Labor Department announced that there were 235,000 jobs added to the economy in Augustwell below the 750,000 forecast by economists. The market, coming off of Thursdays highs, was mixed with the S&P 500 slightly down at 4535.43, the Dow Jones Industrial Average off 0.2% at 35,369.09, and the Nasdaq Composite up 0.2% at a record high 15,363.52. For the week, the Dow was lower by 0.2%, while the S&P 500 was up 0.6% and the Nasdaq was up 1.5%.

Rather than be spooked by the prospect of slowing economic growth, Wall Street appeared to take the weaker-than-forecast figures as confirmation of concerns it had about how the Covid-19 Delta variant would affect economic activity. And with indications that the Delta variant has hit, or is at least near, peak levels in some parts of the country, the market is willing to look past Augusts jobs figuresespecially since it means the Federal Reserve is less likely to taper its bond-buying program in the near term.

This jobs report shows the ebb and flow of volatile data, Dave Donabedian, chief investment officer of CIBC Private Wealth Management, told Barrons, remarking that we saw a similar miss in April only to see hiring rebound in later months.

As for where to put money, theres little reason to quit whats been workingeven if the path may become rockier. The S&P 500 will be marginally higher at year-end but overall market volatility will rise, Donabedian said.

So far investors seem just fine with that, according to Baird market strategist Michael Antonelli, who told Barrons that clients have been unusually quiet on the what should I be doing front. Near term, hell be paying attention to employment figures for September and October, which should show more job gains as extra unemployment benefits run off and more parents return to the workforce as schools enter a new normal for the pandemic.

For investors who arent content to sit on their hands, there are sectors worth a closer look, he said. Consumer discretionary is one area that may have more juice in it as the economy returns to normal in 2022. There are also reasons to selectively stick with the tech trade as many namesparticularly in softwarehave proved to be just as relevant in a postpandemic world as in a work-from-home worl! d. Of course, no one should expect to see the sectors to surge as much as they have since the back half of 2020.

Antonelli also continues to like housing plays. Millennials have entered their peak homebuying years at a time when rates are low and thats a trend that should continue. And while the pandemic nesting phase spending may be over, recent storms may have people thinking about how to best protect their homes, providing gains for other players in the housing space.

Of course, no one would blame an investor for enjoying the holiday weekend and parking in an index.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks For 2022

AbbVie’s  (ABBV) – Get AbbVie, Inc. Report selloff was overdone after a Sept. 1 setback for its star immunology drug Rinvoq, and the stock remains undervalued, says BMO analyst Gary Nachman.

He has an outperform rating and a $133 price target. The stock recently traded at $106.61, down 0.81%, and has dropped 12% since Aug. 31.

On Sept. 1, the Food and Drug Administration mandated new heart safety and cancer warnings for Rinvoq and other companies’ JAK inhibitor class of medicines.

“Physicians agreed Rinvoq is still likely to get approved for atopic dermatitis (AD), given its overall risk/benefit,” Nachman said. “Even with limited use, it could still be a solid opportunity.”

The phrase “too big to fail” could be aptly applied to the brick-and-mortar retail climate of today.

As various merchants wade through supply chain snags, climbing costs, and a resurgence of Covid-19, Walmart on Tuesday reported another quarter of rising U.S. sales, surpassing Wall Street expectations.

Back-To-Store Season

It is officially back-to-school season, and groceries are pretty much always in season. It’s those two categories in particular that lifted Walmart’s sales for the quarter wrapping up at the end of July:

The chain’s food sales grew $2.4 billion versus a year ago, as Walmart’s low prices and reliable inventory of meats and produce drew shoppers in.And comparable sales (those from U.S. stores and digital channels operating for at least a year), rose 5.2% in the quarter compared with the same period last year.

The solid figures put Walmart’s revenue $4 billion above analyst expectations, with CFO Brett Biggs reporting that the Delta variant hasn’t had “any meaningful impact” on the national business, as customers continue to pack stores this summer after “coming out of hibernation.”

Dual Wins for Pfizer Mean Big Jumps for These 2 Stocks

The stock market moved higher again on Monday morning, building on gains from Friday. Good news from Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) was encouraging to the broader market, as it inspired investors to believe they might be one step closer to the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of 11 a.m. EDT, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES:^DJI) was up 253 points to 35,373. The S&P 500 (SNPINDEX:^GSPC) gained 39 points to 4,480, and the Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX:^IXIC) picked up 187 points to 14,902.

Pfizer’s stock was among the best performers in the Dow on a percentage basis thanks to a couple of news items that lifted its share price. Nevertheless, Pfizer’s gains were minimal compared to the boosts in the other companies involved with the drugmaker. Below, we’ll look at what good news for Pfizer meant for BioNTech (NASDAQ:BNTX) and Trillium Therapeutics (NASDAQ:TRIL).

Full approval for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine

Pfizer’s big news was that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration fully approved the COVID-19 vaccine it developed with BioNTech. Shares of BioNTech surged higher by more than 10% on Monday morning in the wake of the news.

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine had already been extremely popular both in the U.S. and worldwide as one of the most effective COVID-19 vaccines on the market. However, the companies had been delivering inoculations under an Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA, which created some limitations on its use and the manner in which the companies marketed and priced the vaccine.

The FDA almost seemed more excited about the development than Pfizer and BioNTech. The regulatory agency’s press release heralded the approval as a key milestone against COVID-19, arguing that the public should be even more confident about “high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality” because of the approval.

BioNTech has played second fiddle to rival Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA) among vaccine stocks. However, being first to full FDA approval is a distinction that could help bolster BioNTech’s long-term prospects.

Trillium gets an offer no one could refuse

Meanwhile, shares of Trillium Therapeutics skyrocketed 188%. The cancer specialist got a buyout bid from Pfizer at a premium that few acquisitions command, even in the highly lucrative biotech and pharma field.

Pfizer agreed to pay a total of $2.26 billion for Trillium. Trillium’s shareholders will receive $18.50 per share in cash. Given that the stock closed at just over $6 per share on Friday afternoon, it’s clear that Pfizer was willing to pay up, calculating its offer at a 118% premium to the weighted average share price over the past 60 days.

Pfizer is optimistic that Trillium will help bolster its oncology and hematology portfolio of pipeline treatments, with an emphasis on patients suffering from blood-related cancer. Trillium’s clinical-stage candidates are unique in the way they fight cancer, with the potential to change the way medical professionals treat patients with the disease.

Buying early stage biotechs is always risky, but given Trillium’s potential, Pfizer investors seem happy about the acquisition. Only time will tell, though, whether the move ends up working to Pfizer’s advantage in the long run.
