It’s the course, you idiot, that’s the catchphrase today with Bessie, Akzo and the rest

It's the cycle, dummy, is het motto vandaag met Besi, Akzo en de rest

It’s the economic cycle, you idiot!

The AEX is -0.2% and that probably isn’t too bad considering interest rates and the upcoming third quarter. Besi and AkzoNobel in particular stress that the economy is making water here and there, as was a slew of American money last night.

  • All European futures contracts open around zero
  • The US too, with the exception of the mini-NASDAQ 100, which runs -0.4%.
  • In Asia, China is flat, but the rest is up to 1 percent lower. However, the Hang Seng Index is down 1.7%. So more about this, because it’s not good there
  • Volatility (CBOE VIX Index) is +0.9% at 30.8
  • The dollar fell 0.1 percent to 0.9785. The yen is at its lowest level since 1990
  • Gold is down 0.2%, Oil is up +1.3%, and the cryptocurrency is down a few tenths

Interest rates again, my gosh – they haven’t finished their coffee yet – they’re really going up Boquito, well, how much room is there for stocks as long as interest rates keep going up?

the master. The market can, of course, decide at any moment that the fun is over and just cancel the wonderful correlation between stocks and interest rates. It’s not happening at the moment, look here again AEX in orange and our 10 years in purple.

By the way we have no complaints here in Amsterdam. For example, in Hong Kong, the Hang Seng fell to its lowest level since… the credit crunch.

The most important things first
, Besi saw Q3s with a double dip in sales and profits and the company expects fourth-quarter sales to decline by 15-25%. So cycle and market conditions, anyone who thinks shredders are no longer cyclical has their homework. This is the dreary Match ReportHow much is this?

Our analyst Paul Weeteling spoke to me about this and you can expect a review from him soon.

Besi clean results in light of a much lower turnover level. The order quantity is very weak. Obviously, the down cycle isn’t in the third quarter yet.

With the RELX update, we quickly finished: fine finea slight increase in the overview.

And what if the session bites! AkzoNobel had already warned about earnings, but is now withdrawing its forecasts for 2022 and 2023 in the third quarter. Again, how much does this cost?

You may need to start paying close attention to your journals. I’m so surprised by that Cyclic ArcelorMittal has held. Both DSM and IMCD are expensive.

Nedap also reports Q3s (over here), addresses known issues, but maintains a forward-looking outlook. Sligro is also through Q3s and is not releasing an outlook (over here) Finally Kapka also mentions (over here).

Last night, Tesla fell 6.3% after trading (after the initial rally) in the third quarter. The profit wasn’t too bad, the turnover was disappointing and the company is assuming a recession, which it doesn’t think it will bother with. These are briefly the CNBC headlines, ABM FN-Dow Jones Report I read here.

Tesla posted $1.05 in adjusted earnings per share, beating expectations of 99 cents, on revenue of $21.45 billion, lower than the expected $21.96 billion.

Net income (GAAP) was $3.33 billion, more than double from a year ago, while auto revenue was up 55% from the prior-year quarter.

The company warned of a bottleneck in transportation capacity to deliver new cars in the final weeks of the quarter, and said it was “moving to a smoother delivery pace.”

From the conference call:

On Tesla’s third-quarter earnings call, CEO Elon Musk said the company is not cutting production “in any meaningful way, slack or stagnate.”

“We stick to the metal whether it’s raining or sunny,” Musk said.

Regarding Musk’s proposed $44 billion takeover of Twitter, he said the company “has been a bit weak for a long time but has incredible potential.”

These Americans also have numbers:

Alcohol -8.0%
IBM + 2.9%
PPG -1.7%

Then this and certainly there are among us who do better. Keep in mind that these pension funds are not just in stocks, but also bonds and you know what you’re going through this year. The worst ever.
