Goldman Sachs

【Goldman Sachs Strategist: Soaring Stocks Are Facing Ongoing Risks】

July 14 -- The current rally in global stock markets suggests that inflation and recession risks are behind us. But strategists at Goldman Sachs are more skeptical. Strategist Christian says the risk of a U.S. recession remains high, and inflation could get trickier from now on and trigger hawkish surprises from central banks. He added that we expect global equities to remain in a "rich and stable" range from now on. Low risk premiums and relatively weak earnings growth limit the potential for further gains. Goldman Sachs strategists say a big risk for the second half of the year is the impact of slower global growth on earnings revisions. They kept their asset allocation to equities neutral, while upgrading bonds to neutral from underweight. They downgraded their recommendation on commodities to neutral for the next three months, but maintained their hold rating for the next 12 months.



Societe Generale: For EURUSD to move back above 1.10, the USD CPI MoM may need to fall to 0.2%.



MUFG: Non-farm payrolls data won't make Fed more hawkish in the second half of the year.
