Speculative, expensive and beaten down – the stock market’s new leadership

People walking on Wall Street


Mid-June marked a turning point for the stock market and new leadership has formed for the recent rise, according to Credit Suisse.

Driving returns were stocks that are speculative (high correlation to Bitcoin (BTC-USD)), Expensive (high P/E), Depressed (52-week drawdown), Volatile (high correlation with falling VIX (IX)) and severely shorted.

The S&P 500 (SP500) (NYSEARCA: SPY) is up about 10% since mid-June. During that time, speculative stocks have produced the best equal-weighted return at 16.8%, closely followed by expensive stocks, which are up 16.6%. Beaten Down shares returned 14.6%, Volatile rose 14.1% and Highly Shorted shares returned 10.3%.

“Inflation is expected to decline steadily over the next 24 months, based on both breakeven and economist forecasts, amid falling commodity prices and weaker economic data,” wrote equity analysts at Credit Suisse. “We believe this will result in the Fed turning to more dovish policy towards the end of the year, which supports a continuation of the market’s current rally and factor leadership.”
