  • Market Wrap-Up for May 31 (GES, PLL, MS, more)

    The markets started off today's session trying to find an identity. Continued volatility in the Japanese markets, poor European economic data, and worse-than-expected April consumer spending data caused some traders to drag stocks down early today. However, big beats in the Chicago PMI data, which measures manufacturing in the Midwest, and the University of Michigan Consumer Confidence survey eventually sent some waves of optimism through Wall Street, with the indices spending time in some positive territory. Despite the early tug-of-war between the bulls and bears, the markets eventually went in the bears' favor. A late sell-off caused the markets to close deep in the red to end the week. Fashion retailer Guess? (GES) was one of the big upward movers today, after it reported better-than-expected earnings. On the flip side, Pall Corp. (PLL) shares fell on disappointing earnings. A couple of Wall Street upgrades of Morgan Stanley (MS) , Tiffany & Co. (TIF) , and Vail Resorts (MTN) helped those shares head into positive territory. Downgrades of Joy Global (JOY) and Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) caused those shares to fall.

    What Lies Ahead?

    As we close out May and head into summer, it is a good time to reflect on the current state of the markets. Over the past five months, the S&P 500 is up about 16%; a great start to the year for most investors already with positions in the markets. Compare this to the same period last year, when the S&P 500 was up only just over 4%. For dividend focused investors, its been a good year so far as well. Companies have been boosting dividend payouts and share buybacks, helping increase shareholder wealth even in an environment with substantial share price appreciate. Though it has been an exceptionally bullish start to the year, it is important for investors to be prepared for the potential obstacles ahead. It has been easy to get caught up in the bull market euphoria, with investors developing some complacency as they see the gains in their brokerage accounts grow. But as we have experience over the past couple of weeks, the emotions on Wall Street can turn on a dime. Summer tends to be a time of lighter volume (hence the "Sell in May and Go Away" adage) and often times increased volatility . Shares do not just go up and up; a pullback here and there is necessary and healthy for the stock market. Chasing stocks because you feel that you have missed out so far or are getting greedy is never a good strategy. The future of quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve and rising interest rates are starting to become the developing narratives for the summer investing landscape. As we head into summer, these related developments could certainly impact investors' returns, both positively (for those waiting for pullbacks) and negatively (for those who try to chase shares higher). Investors need to be prepared heading into these coming months and not let the past returns and nice weather steer you off your long-term goals. Check back on Sunday for our Weekend Edition post discussing some of the developing impacts of rising interest rates.

    Looking Toward Next Week

    Looking ahead to the next week, first quarter earnings releases continue to trickle in from a number of companies, including Cracker Barrel (CBRL) , Smucker's (SJM) , and Vail Resorts (MTN) . Thanks for reading today. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
