Market Multiple Table: October Update

What’s in Today’s Report:

  • Market Multiple Table: October Update
  • ISM Services Index – Takeaways

Stock futures are down more than 1% and bond yields continue to climb higher amid renewed stagflation fears while traders look ahead to this week’s U.S. jobs data.

Economically, data was disappointing overnight as German Manufacturers Orders fell by -7.7% vs. (E) -2.1% in August and EU Retail Sales for the same month rose just 0.3% vs. (E) 0.8%.

Meanwhile, U.K. 10-year Gilt breakevens jumped 10 basis points to the highest since 2008 (above 4%) as surging energy costs add to inflation concerns.

Looking into today’s session, focus will be on the September ADP Employment Report (E: 428K) ahead of the bell while there is one Fed official speaking this morning: Bostic (9:00 & 11:30 a.m. ET). The bond market is continuing to have a significant impact on stocks right now so if there is a spike higher in yields in the wake of the private payrolls print, expect stocks to remain under pressure today.
