Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs at odds on S&P 500’s bull market rally (3 min read)

Bank strategists are split on the future of the S&P 500 after the index entered a technical bull market last week. Goldman Sachs is particularly optimistic, expecting the gains to continue as other sectors catch up with the technology rally. Morgan Stanley on the other hand, compared the current market to the bear of the 1940s, suggesting that the rally may be short-lived. The bank also predicts a drop in S&P 500 earnings this year, while other bank analysts have been upgrading their earnings expectations amid a resilient US economy.

Hedge Fund Bond Bears Are Relentlessly Shorting Treasuries (2 min read)

Hedge funds are continuing to sell short-dated Treasuries, indicating their belief that the Fed's rate-hiking campaign is not over. Leveraged investors have increased their net-short positions on two-year Treasuries for an eleventh consecutive week, the longest streak on record. This suggests that hedge funds are confident in betting against Treasuries due to persistent inflation concerns. Meanwhile, other bond managers argue that previous rate hikes have already caused damage and could lead to a US recession, which would support the bond market.
Why International ETFs Are Luring Investors (3 min read)

Investors are flocking back to international ETFs after a lackluster performance in 2022. European ETFs and international multi-cap core ETFs have seen significant inflows this year. The appeal lies in the cheaper valuations of international stocks compared to US equities, making them attractive in a potential economic recovery. Many financial advisors have also been adding international ETFs into their clients’ portfolios for diversification and to capture potential profits in the coming year.
