Afternoon Note

Yield Pulling Back

By Charles Payne, CEO & Principal Analyst
4/1/2021 1:26 PM

The ten-year yield is pulling back today, but it is still in its three-month trading channel that has caused so many problems for technology stocks. 

That pullback is helping Technology, which is the top performing sector in today’s session.  But I think there is more to this rebound than the correlation with bond yields.  Focus on the potential and look over a longer-term horizon to justify certain valuation metrics.

With the market looking at a three-day weekend, it’s intriguing this rally has held today.  Lots of folks are looking for one million net new jobs in tomorrow’s report.  That would be something, but I think it comes in below, which is what we need to keep inflation concerns under wraps. 

Things are going to be great, and it will feel like a party for a while…but only for a while before there is a more normal pace of growth.   I’m more than cool with that if the private sector is allowed to carry the heavy load. 

There will be no reports tomorrow. Have a great holiday weekend.  Be safe and stay well.
