Economic Data

June Nonfarm payrolls increased by +209K, missing estimates of +225K and +306K, respectively, for May (from 339K) and April (to +217K from +294K). Private payroll growth was +149K vs. an expected +200K, and government employment growth was +60K. All private workers’ average hourly wages increased by 0.4% from May (consensus + 0.3%), while the unemployment rate decreased to 3.6%, as predicted.

Global Economic data

Goldman Sachs noted: 2Q 2023 earnings season begins next week and consensus forecasts a 9% year/year decrease in S&P 500 EPS due to flat sales growth and margin compression. Companies should fulfill consensus’s modest bar. Revision sentiment has improved as 2023 and 2024 EPS revisions have bottomed out.

Goldman Sachs notes: Key areas of focus this quarter include: (1) ability of enterprises to retain margins as inflation recedes, (2) impact of bank stress on credit and lending, (3) possible uses of AI, and (4) US consumer position.

After a strong first half, Citigroup is skeptical of Wall Street stocks. Analysts downgraded U.S. stocks to neutral from overweight last quarter. U.S. equities strategist Scott Chronert warned Monday that mega cap growth is ready for a slowdown, while recession risks might still strike.
