Afternoon Note

Market Rout Continues

By Karina Hernandez, Senior Research Analyst

S&P Global PMIs were not pretty today and underscores the story that tech is not the only one hurting. U.S. PMI showed further weakness at 44.6 from the 46.4 prior read and missing consensus of 46.9. Downturn is business activity was the sharpest since May 2020.

There is a sea of red this afternoon and nowhere to hide. All sectors are in red with safe-havens Real Estate and Utilities leading the downturn, while Communication Service is the best of the weak hand.

We could implode into the close. This is the wash out, which is in part from the S&P and Nasdaq quarterly rebalance (meaning winners get sold and losers get bought).  We are holding on to quality names. Take lumps and be ready to get it back, but smartly, not loading up in out-of-the money options that expire in 24 hours.
