Shares of industrial and transportation companies fell after a wave of weak factory data.

Industrial production fell 0.2% in August from the previous month, according to data from the Federal Reserve. More recent regional factory data showed an even steeper slowdown.

The Empire State index improved to a reading of -1.5 in September from -31.3 the previous month, the New York Fed said. The Philadelphia Fed’s manufacturing index slowed to a reading of -9.9 in September from 6.2 the previous month.

Markets will likely be rocked by weaker economic data in the fourth quarter, a brokerage has warned.

“Recession fears present a weaker backdrop for global risk assets, and the global outlook remains abnormally uncertain,” strategists at brokerage firm BNP Paribas said in a note to clients.

“The darkest clouds” on the economic horizon are in Europe, the brokerage said. There, “recession is inevitable, in our opinion: probably not deep, due to fiscal support, but prolonged”.

The largest freight railroads and union leaders reached a tentative labor agreement to avert a nationwide strike that would have crippled swaths of the US economy. Railroad CSX has named Joe Hinrichs as its new general manager, bringing in a former auto executive during a time of social unrest.

The Justice Department has filed an antitrust lawsuit challenging a planned $4.3 billion deal in which major lockmaker Assa Abloy is seeking to acquire a US rival.

Bears are losing control of CSW Industrials (CSWI), here’s why it’s a ‘buy’ now https://mokerthompson.com/bears-are-losing-control-of-csw-industrials-cswi-heres-why-its-a-buy-now/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 17:42:21 +0000 https://mokerthompson.com/bears-are-losing-control-of-csw-industrials-cswi-heres-why-its-a-buy-now/ The price development of CSW Industrials (CSWI) has been bearish lately and the stock has lost 6.9% over the past week.

The price development of CSW Industrials (CSWI) has been bearish lately and the stock has lost 6.9% over the past week. However, the formation of a hammer chart in its last trading session indicates that the stock may soon experience a trend reversal as the bulls may have gained significant control over the price to help it find support. .

While the formation of a hammer pattern is a technical indication of an approaching bottom with potential exhaustion of selling pressure, growing optimism among Wall Street analysts about the future earnings of this price maker Industrials & Coatings is a strong fundamental that improves the prospects of a trend reversal for the stock.

What is a Hammer Chart and how do I trade it?

It is one of the most popular price patterns in candlestick charts. A minor difference between the open and close prices forms a small candle body, and a larger difference between the daily low and the open or close forms a long lower wick (or vertical line). Since the length of the lower wick is at least twice the length of the real body, the candle resembles a “hammer”.

Simply put, during a downtrend, with absolute control of the bears, a security typically opens lower than the previous day’s close, and closes lower again. On the day the hammer pattern forms, maintaining the downtrend, the stock hits a new low. However, after finally finding support at the day’s low, some buying interest is emerging, pushing the stock higher to close the session near or slightly above its open price.

When occurring at the bottom of a downtrend, this pattern signals that the bears may have lost control of the price. And, the success of the bulls in preventing the price from falling further indicates a potential trend reversal.

Hammer candles can occur at any time – such as a minute, daily, weekly – and are used by both short-term and long-term investors.

Like any technical indicator, the hammer chart pattern has its limitations. In particular, since the strength of a hammer depends on its location on the chart, it should always be used in conjunction with other bullish indicators.

Here’s what makes the trend reversal more likely for CSWI

An upward trend in earnings estimate revisions that CSWI has been witnessing lately can certainly be seen as a bullish indicator on the fundamental side. Indeed, empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with short-term stock price movements.

Over the past 30 days, the current year EPS consensus estimate has risen 20.2%. This means that sell-side analysts covering CSWI overwhelmingly agree that the company will report better earnings than they previously predicted.

If that’s not enough, you should note that CSWI currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), which means it’s in the top 5% of over 4,000 stocks that we rank based on market trends. revisions to earnings estimates and EPS. surprises. And stocks with a Zacks rank of No. 1 or 2 generally outperform the market. You can see the full list of today’s Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stocks here >>>>

Additionally, Zacks Rank has proven to be an excellent timing indicator, helping investors identify precisely when a company’s prospects are beginning to improve. Thus, for CSW Industrials shares, a Zacks ranking of 1 is a more conclusive fundamental indication of a potential turnaround.

Zacks names ‘only one best choice for doubling up’

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts have each picked their favorite to skyrocket by +100% or more in the coming months. Of these 5, Research Director Sheraz Mian selects one to have the most explosive advantage of all.

It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% year-on-year, but still very cheap. With relentless demand, rising earnings estimates for 2022 and $1.5 billion for stock buybacks, retail investors could step in at any time.

This company could rival or surpass other recent Zacks stocks that are expected to double, such as Boston Beer Company which climbed +143.0% in just over 9 months and NVIDIA which jumped +175.9% in one. year. Top >>

The huge amount of rented warehouse space in the first half of this year caused vacancy rates to drop to a historic low of 1.18%, but there are signs that fears over the health of the economy extract some of the heat from the market. .

Investment in industrial property in the UK fell to £1.6bn in the second quarter, from £4.6bn in the first, according to Colliers. As a result, the half-year figure of £6.2bn is down more than a fifth on the same period last year.

Investors in this market have done quite well in recent years, but given the outlook, it’s understandable that shareholders would want to lock in the gains – especially if, as a company associated with Industrials Reit (MLI) chief executive Paul Arenson , you borrowed a sum of money to pay them.

Lonat Ltd, owned by a trust of which Arenson is a beneficiary, borrowed £6.5 million from a subsidiary of the REIT in three separate tranches from 2015 to 2017. The loans were made under a purchase plan shares of the company at the REIT’s average borrowing rate of 2.16%, repayable in 10 years. Over 5 million shares have been pledged on the loans.

The REIT was listed in May 2018 and although its valuation saw some dips along the way, it generally enjoyed an upward trajectory until the end of last year, gaining 73% since inception to hit a high. from 204p in December. Shares fell by more than a quarter in the first half of this year, but have rallied since mid-July. Lonat capitalized on recent gains, cashing in 3.5 million shares on August 18 and using the net proceeds of £5.24 million generated to repay most of the loans. The balance of £1.26million was due to be repaid in cash a week later.

Industrials Reit said it would use the money to buy more multi-tenancy industrial properties. He said the commercial investment market “is experiencing volatility” but is well positioned to capitalize, with available cash ready to deploy and a relatively low loan-to-value ratio of 26%.

Arenson also still has skin in the game – following the Lonat sales, he has a “direct and indirect interest” in 13.6 million shares – a stake of around 4.55%.
