What’s in Today’s Report:
- What Outperforms If Stocks Trade With a 20X Multiple?
Global equity markets are rallying as the spread of the coronavirus continues to slow while statistics show that Sanders victory in the New Hampshire primary increases the odds of a “market-friendly” Trump reelection in 2020.
Eurozone Industrial Production was soft in December with the headline falling -2.1% vs. (E) -1.8% but optimism for a 2020 economic rebound is offsetting the poor data point.
There are no notable economic reports today however there are two Fed speakers ahead of the bell: Harker (8:30 a.m. ET) and Daly ( 9:00 a.m. ET), while Powell will testify before Congress for a second day (10:00 a.m. ET).
Outside of the Fed speakers today, the Treasury will hold a 10-Yr Note auction at 1:00 p.m. ET and as has been the case recently, any sizeable moves in the bond market, especially that impact the yield curve, could influence stock trading in the afternoon.
