[Charts] The Next Massive Mania-Trend

Dear Wall Street Daily Reader,

Once a week or so I like to embrace the adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

I select a handful of charts that put recent investment news into perspective for you. Then I throw in some snarky commentary.

All it takes is a quick glance and you’ll be up to speed — and more importantly, poised to profit.

Bull Market Death-Cross?

All eyes are fixated on 10-year treasury yields as they keep rising.

They’ve spiked so much — a whopping 0.2% to 1.6%, momentarily — that all the Chicken Littles in the market want us to believe that runaway inflation is right around the corner.

Meanwhile, the dividend yield on the S&P 500 Index has been falling.

And (gasp) the two lines crossed in the last week! It’s a dreaded bull market death-cross, they say.

But the survey data says? Nonsense!

S&P 500 dividend yield vs 10yr treasury

Truth is, Treasuries should yield more than stocks because government bonds are nearly a risk-free asset. And historically, they do yield more than stocks the majority of the time.

What’s more, as Bespoke Investment Group notes, “These crosses [since the financial crisis] have actually been far from bearish for the S&P 500’s near-term performance.”

More specifically, in the 30 days following the cross, the S&P rallies an average of 1.5%. And it keeps rallying for an average gain of 7% over the next three months.

Translation: Focus on the data, not the fear mongering in the headlines. The dreaded treasury/dividend yield death-cross is bupkus!

The longer-term market fundamentals remain decidedly bullish (surging earnings, pent up economic demand, accommodative central bank policies around the world, and the list goes on).

The recent market sell-off is healthy. It’s a prime opportunity to add to positions you love at cheaper prices.

So don’t be a chicken — do it!

SPAC Nation Revisited

Recently, I alerted you to a booming niche in the IPO market for Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs).

The latest estimates now call for a staggering 1,000 SPACs to hit the market this year.

Insanity!

That would be more than four times the number of SPACs last year.

Take a look:
