Weekly Performance Review June 7th – 11th, 2021

Stocks finished the week mixed amid quiet trading.  The Dow lost 0.8% for the week, while the Nasdaq gained nearly 1.9%.  The S&P 500 eeked out a tiny 0.4% gain and following more than a month of consolidation, reached a new record high, finishing the week at 4,247.

Investors shrugged off a larger than expected jump in the consumer price index this week, but with no clear upside catalyst, stocks meandered towards the close on Friday.  Many of the Wall Street pros foresee more consolidation to start next week, ahead of results from the Federal Reserve’s June meeting which are expected to come out Wednesday afternoon. 

A decline in interest rates helped lift tech stocks higher, while financials and other cyclicals dragged lower.  REITs were the best performing major sector for the week followed by health care and consumer discretionary.

06-09-2021_IJR down 1.83%

iShares Core S&P Small-Cap ETF (IJR) is the largest small-cap focused fund on Wall Street with over $60 billion in assets under management. The investment thesis behind a small cap investment is the growth factor that comes along with these securities.

06-10-2021_BA down 1.76%

The Boeing Company (BA) stock seems to be back on track after recent weakness due to its highly publicized 737 Max issues. Reuters reported last month that Boeing had drawn up preliminary plans for a fresh sprint in 737 Max output to as many as 42 jets a month by the fall of 2022.  

Boeing is a high quality company and as such, trades for a premium valuation.  But an investment in BA is an investment in its position as a global industry leader.  As leisure air-travel demand continues to improve, the case for BA at current levels is gaining appeal.  



06-11-2021_GS up 0.55%

What makes Goldman Sachs (GS) stock appealing is that it trades for just nine times earnings despite analysts expecting almost 17% EPS growth annually over the next five years.  That makes for a price-earnings growth ratio of just 0.55, reflecting extreme value.

Plus, while many large banks pay high dividends, Goldman pays a modest 1.4% and uses just 12% of earnings to do so, meaning it has ample room to grow its payout in the years to come.
