Is the Bear Market Rally Over?

Bye Bye Bear Market… Rally

After an impressive bear market rally over the past two months, returning 17.04% from the bottom, markets appear to be shifting course once again with back-to-back negative weeks.

But like anything else in 2022, it is nearly impossible to tell where we are headed in the near term.

So, rather than attempting to form our opinions about the broad market and the macroeconomy, here are some wise words from the legendary investor Warren Buffett:

“Forming macro opinions or listening to the macro or market predictions of others is a waste of time. Indeed, it is dangerous because it may blur your vision of the facts that are truly important.”

As Buffett states, what is truly important as an investor is finding excellent investment opportunities that are capable of enduring prolonged periods of economic turmoil, and that are sure to last well into the future.

Here is how major indexes performed this week:

Peloton (PTON) reports big losses amidst company makeover

The post pandemic period has brought many challenges to the once prized fitness company, Peloton (PTON).

After consumers were no longer bound to their homes, like they were during the Covid lockdowns, the business experienced a sharp decline in sales as demand for at-home exercise equipment depreciated quickly.

🚴‍♂️ This marks the sixth consecutive quarter of reported losses for the company.

😭 Peloton’s Net Loss widened to $1.24 billion with Revenue falling 28% YoY to $678.7 million; the stock is down 90.75% over one year.

🏋️‍♀️ In the quarterly report, new CEO Barry McCarthy wrote to shareholders, “The naysayers will look at our financial performance and see a melting pot […] But what I see is significant progress driving our comeback and Peloton’s long-term resilience.”

💥 Since filling the role, McCarthy initiated drastic changes to try and save the company:

  • Raised membership fees
  • Hiked equipment prices
  • Laid off workers
  • Began selling their products on Amazon

Will Peloton (PTON) make a comeback in 2023?

US & China progress in deal to share audits of US-listed Chinese stocks.

This year, US-listed Chinese stocks are beaten down bad for a plethora of reasons including:

  • Potential stock delistings due to lack of transparency on financial statements
  • US-China geopolitical tensions
  • Tech stock crackdowns by the CCP
  • A maturing Chinese economy

But fortunately from one aspect, relationships are improving as US and China seek to resolve issues regarding the amount of financial information released by these companies.

🌇 China is permitting US regulators the opportunity to review documents of US-listed Chinese firms in Hong Kong.

💰 If they reach a deal, it may spare over 261 Chinese companies collectively worth $1.3 trillion from delisting.

👀 Stocks affected include: Alibaba (BABA), (JD), Yum China (YUMC), and more.

🤝 While this is certainly a positive step, SEC Chair Gary Gensler expressed in July that “It’s quite possible that there’s no deal here. I’m not particularly confident.”
