The buzz around electric vehicles in the past several years has excited investors about the industry. Nio, a Chinese electric vehicle designer, manufacturer, and seller, is no exception. The company's share price movement has had its ups and downs however some market commentators indicate that the company’s fundamentals have remained the same and that the recent share price volatility has resulted from other market forces, particularly the performance of the U.S. 10-year Treasury Bond i.e. rising interest rates.

In this blog, we consider how investors can take exposure to property as an asset class by investing in either open-ended or closed-end funds. It is likely that physically-owned property is one of the biggest single investments that many investors will make, indeed there are some who will have additional exposure through the ownership of rental properties and/or second homes. We are not going to look at direct property purchases, which typically involves taking on some form of borrowing via a mortgage, possibly the most common way individuals make use of leverage in their lives.

Another volatile week for U.S. stock markets with conflicting economic data adding uncertainty in the face of this week’s FOMC meeting. President Biden’s tax-hike plan, weakening Chinese growth, continued Covid concerns, a slightly lower-than-expected increase in CPI and much stronger-thanforecasted retail sales left markets unsettled and increased uncertaintly regarding possible Fed actions at the 2-day FOMC meeting beginning Tuesday this week. All three major U.S. indexes, up around 0.4% through Thursday, ended the week in the red after falling between ½ and 1 percent on Friday. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates reflected this uncertainty, too, falling 6bps through Tuesday (following the CPI release) and then increasing 8bps the remainder of the week. Similary, the DXY Dollar Index, unchanged through Wednesday, strengthened almost ¾ percent over Thursday and Friday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index fell -0.6% to 4,432.99, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 0.5% to 15,044.00, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.1% to 34,584.88, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 2bps to 1.36% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.7% percent.

All three major U.S. stock market indexes finished lower last week, falling over 1.5% and with the Dow Jones Industrial Average performing the worst. Fallout from the previous week’s disappointing non-farm payroll report and the ending of supplemental unemployment benefits (in the remaining 25 states that still provide them) weighed on stock prices with increasing concerns of slowing U.S. economic growth. Concerns of slowing growth have increased doubts whether the Fed will begin tapering before year end while at the same time inflation continues to increase at historically high levels (Friday’s PPI release showed producer prices increased the most in its history). The confluence of increased expectations of weaker growth, surging inflation and a Fed potentially unwilling or unable to tighten monetary policy in the near future has added to investor uncertainty resulting in weaker stock markets. Concerns regarding congressional debt ceiling and budget negotiations also weighed on markets. At week’s end, the S&P 500 Index fell 1.7% to 4,458.58, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 1.6% to 15,115.5, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.2% to 34,607.46, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bps to 1.34% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.7% percent.

U.S. stock markets were mainly higher last week with the Nasdaq Composite Index closing at record levels and the S&P 500 Index closing just below record highs but with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing lower on the week. Growth stocks performed better than value stocks, buoyed by disappointing payroll reports and flagging consumer confidence – both attributed to Delta variant-related concerns and restrictions. Wednesday’s much weaker-than-expected ADP payroll report was substantiated by Friday’s much weaker-than-expected U.S. non-farm payroll report with markets overall reacting to the “bad news” as “good news” believing weak economic data would forestall the Fed from tightening monetary policy anytime soon. The 10-year U.S. Treasury reacted oppositely, increasing 4bps after the release of U.S. non-farm payroll report perhaps reflecting inflation concerns given the likelihood of the Fed to continue with its ultra-accommodative monetary policy and the U.S. dollar weakened, seemingly reflecting those same concerns. For the week, the S&P 500 Index increased 0.6% to 4,535.43, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.6% to 15,363.50, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.2% to 35,369.35, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 2bps to 1.33% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.7% percent.

U.S. stock markets moved higher last week buoyed by strong earnings reports, as- or better-thanexpected economic data and by temperate comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. All three major U.S. stock indexes rose every day but Thursday last week, faltering on Thursday in anticipation of Jerome Powell’s Jackson Hole speech Friday morning and on news of the Kabul airport attack. Both the S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average closed the week at record highs. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s prepared remarks on Friday confirmed the Fed wanted to begin tapering its Treasury note and mortgage-backed bond buyback program before year end but also qualified those comments with a need for careful and moderate implementation citing concerns of “temporary fluctuations in inflation”. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rate finished the week higher but well off its Thursday’s high of 1.36%, falling over 4bps after Jerome Powell’s comments. Similarly, the U.S. dollar, weaker by ½ percent through Thursday, weakened almost another ½ percent Friday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index increased 1.5% to 4,509.37, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 2.8% to 15,129.50, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.0% closing at 35,454.81, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 5bps to 1.31% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.9% percent.

U.S. stock markets moved higher again last week with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index posting another set of record highs. Senate passage of a $1 trillion infrastructure bill Tuesday and Wednesday’s CPI release showing high YoY gains but slowing MoM gains helped move stock prices higher. Markets all but ignored Thursday’s record high PPI release and Friday’s much lower-than-expected consumer sentiment reading with all three major indexes moving higher the last two days of the week. The U.S. dollar, stronger through Thursday, weakened substantially Friday following the much lower-than-expected Michigan University consumer sentiment release. U.S. 10-year Treasury rates performed similarly, falling 7bps Friday after being up 8bps through Thursday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index increased 0.7% to 4,468.00, the Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 0.1% to 14,822.90, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.9% to 35,515.38, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bps to 1.30% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.3% percent.

In this blog, we consider how investors can take exposure to property as an asset class by investing in either open-ended or closed-end funds. It is likely that physically-owned property is one of the biggest single investments that many investors will make, indeed there are some who will have additional exposure through the ownership of rental properties and/or second homes. We are not going to look at direct property purchases, which typically involves taking on some form of borrowing via a mortgage, possibly the most common way individuals make use of leverage in their lives.

While gas cars are more popular than electric cars, over the past few years, more and more people have switched to electric vehicles in an effort to help the environment and alleviate fuel costs.

Another volatile week for U.S. stock markets with conflicting economic data adding uncertainty in the face of this week’s FOMC meeting. President Biden’s tax-hike plan, weakening Chinese growth, continued Covid concerns, a slightly lower-than-expected increase in CPI and much stronger-thanforecasted retail sales left markets unsettled and increased uncertaintly regarding possible Fed actions at the 2-day FOMC meeting beginning Tuesday this week. All three major U.S. indexes, up around 0.4% through Thursday, ended the week in the red after falling between ½ and 1 percent on Friday. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates reflected this uncertainty, too, falling 6bps through Tuesday (following the CPI release) and then increasing 8bps the remainder of the week. Similary, the DXY Dollar Index, unchanged through Wednesday, strengthened almost ¾ percent over Thursday and Friday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index fell -0.6% to 4,432.99, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 0.5% to 15,044.00, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.1% to 34,584.88, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 2bps to 1.36% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.7% percent.

All three major U.S. stock market indexes finished lower last week, falling over 1.5% and with the Dow Jones Industrial Average performing the worst. Fallout from the previous week’s disappointing non-farm payroll report and the ending of supplemental unemployment benefits (in the remaining 25 states that still provide them) weighed on stock prices with increasing concerns of slowing U.S. economic growth. Concerns of slowing growth have increased doubts whether the Fed will begin tapering before year end while at the same time inflation continues to increase at historically high levels (Friday’s PPI release showed producer prices increased the most in its history). The confluence of increased expectations of weaker growth, surging inflation and a Fed potentially unwilling or unable to tighten monetary policy in the near future has added to investor uncertainty resulting in weaker stock markets. Concerns regarding congressional debt ceiling and budget negotiations also weighed on markets. At week’s end, the S&P 500 Index fell 1.7% to 4,458.58, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 1.6% to 15,115.5, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.2% to 34,607.46, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bps to 1.34% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.7% percent.

U.S. stock markets were mainly higher last week with the Nasdaq Composite Index closing at record levels and the S&P 500 Index closing just below record highs but with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing lower on the week. Growth stocks performed better than value stocks, buoyed by disappointing payroll reports and flagging consumer confidence – both attributed to Delta variant-related concerns and restrictions. Wednesday’s much weaker-than-expected ADP payroll report was substantiated by Friday’s much weaker-than-expected U.S. non-farm payroll report with markets overall reacting to the “bad news” as “good news” believing weak economic data would forestall the Fed from tightening monetary policy anytime soon. The 10-year U.S. Treasury reacted oppositely, increasing 4bps after the release of U.S. non-farm payroll report perhaps reflecting inflation concerns given the likelihood of the Fed to continue with its ultra-accommodative monetary policy and the U.S. dollar weakened, seemingly reflecting those same concerns. For the week, the S&P 500 Index increased 0.6% to 4,535.43, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.6% to 15,363.50, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.2% to 35,369.35, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 2bps to 1.33% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.7% percent.

U.S. stock markets moved higher last week buoyed by strong earnings reports, as- or better-thanexpected economic data and by temperate comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. All three major U.S. stock indexes rose every day but Thursday last week, faltering on Thursday in anticipation of Jerome Powell’s Jackson Hole speech Friday morning and on news of the Kabul airport attack. Both the S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average closed the week at record highs. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s prepared remarks on Friday confirmed the Fed wanted to begin tapering its Treasury note and mortgage-backed bond buyback program before year end but also qualified those comments with a need for careful and moderate implementation citing concerns of “temporary fluctuations in inflation”. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rate finished the week higher but well off its Thursday’s high of 1.36%, falling over 4bps after Jerome Powell’s comments. Similarly, the U.S. dollar, weaker by ½ percent through Thursday, weakened almost another ½ percent Friday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index increased 1.5% to 4,509.37, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 2.8% to 15,129.50, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.0% closing at 35,454.81, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 5bps to 1.31% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.9% percent.

U.S. stock markets moved higher again last week with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index posting another set of record highs. Senate passage of a $1 trillion infrastructure bill Tuesday and Wednesday’s CPI release showing high YoY gains but slowing MoM gains helped move stock prices higher. Markets all but ignored Thursday’s record high PPI release and Friday’s much lower-than-expected consumer sentiment reading with all three major indexes moving higher the last two days of the week. The U.S. dollar, stronger through Thursday, weakened substantially Friday following the much lower-than-expected Michigan University consumer sentiment release. U.S. 10-year Treasury rates performed similarly, falling 7bps Friday after being up 8bps through Thursday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index increased 0.7% to 4,468.00, the Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 0.1% to 14,822.90, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.9% to 35,515.38, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bps to 1.30% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.3% percent.
