Daily Briefing ·
Featuring Peter Cooper, Ed Harrison, and Peter Boockvar

Published on: June 18th, 2020 • Duration: 32 minutes

Managing editor Ed Harrison joins Peter Boockvar, CIO of Bleakley Advisor Group, to discuss the latest developments in markets, macro, and coronavirus. Harrison and Boockvar dive into what the trajectory of inflation will be and how it's not a monolithic concept, talk about the possibility and implications of a V-shaped recovery, and explore the broader investment opportunities ahead. In the intro, Peter Cooper explains how the wedge between Wall Street and Main Street continues to be driven deeper.

    There's a green tinge to Mr. Cooper. It's a pity, the dullness and green tinge that I see of his skin is obviously some sort of error or deficit in the quality of his camera. Mr. Cooper, if you are using your own camera, you may want to upgrade, or not. Just something for you to consider. (I will be including a link, not for the purpose of finger wagging, merely for the purpose of highlighting a problem of modern history.) If it's an RV camera then RV may want to upgrade. I realize it's a digital camera being used, still the following article is relevant in lightly skimming the ( I will call it 'disinterest') disinterest that the photographic film industry had when it came to rendering the widely varying skin tones of black and brown people in photographic images. https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2013/jan/25/racism-colour-photography-exhibition

    Any sense for the number of homeowners who requested 12 months forbearance on their mortgages as part of the CARES Act?

      Hi Jordan, Black Knight has been tracking this — their latest press release, which was published two weeks ago, said that as of the beginning of this month, 4.73 million homeowners (8.9% of all active mortgages) are in COVID-19 mortgage forbearance plans. https://www.blackknightinc.com/black-knight-number-of-homeowners-in-covid-19-related-forbearance-plans-falls-for-first-time-since-crisis-began-8-9-of-all-mortgages-now-in-forbearance/

      Here's another interesting note from Stephanie Pomboy in an interview on Hedgeye. She mentioned that home flippers were the largest segment of residential real estate transactions since COVID.

    Well lots of women are growing their hair long and doing their own nails, these sectors will go back, but maybe 90% not 100%. It is too stressful to go do these things now, going to the hairdresser used to be a pleasure at least for me.

    Great job Mr. Cooper. You called the current market’ major problem. Both Mr. Harrison and Mr. Boockvar are theorizing way too much. The reason the stock market is up is simply money flows creating momentum and FOMO. Look at the number of new participants in the stock and derivative markets just playing the momentum. How much money is flowing into the market with Robinhood investors and how much are they leveraged? Many brokers who knew the market was overpriced had to jump in to keep their clients. This is another tulip bubble – tulips are prettier. All IPOs should schedule asap to take advantage of the bubble. Someday student loans, car loans, mortgages, rents and credit cards will have to be paid or defaulted. The size of the bubble will be shown in hindsight. Forget all the theories using any valuation. They are not applicable now. The Bond Market knows. The Bond Market is trying to tell you. Mr. Pal is trying to tell you. What do the Robinhood investor know about the bond market - Hertz. Many of the loan forbearance programs are scheduled to end in the fall to after the election. I wonder why? Could it be the same reason that the Treasury has so much cash on hand? DLS

      The hardest part, is not being sucked in and sticking to your guns and sitting on your hands. I have about 3-5yrs before i want to retire, i can’t afford to get wiped out..mostly in cash, gold and bonds..which can be frustrating when you see equites +1%to 3%(You get my drift) each week at the moment.

    Europe is pushing Google Tax (AMZN, FB,..) agenda. Mnuchin already threatened EU with retaliation but, they still going ahead. EU need cash. US may get into a trade war with EU too. Can RV get someone in Europe to talk about Eurobonds and current situation in Spain, Italy and Greece?

      I saw recently that the German contributions to the EU budget are likely to jump about 40% now the Brits have left..about $14.5bn pa. At some point, they have gotta say..enough is enough, surely? Then again, maybe not.

    Explaining, anticipating, and looking out a few quarters, is so difficult. I subscribe to a few services. It's the same for writing and interviews on each. We all want to be positioned to gain, and to not lose. No one knows what's going to happen. This reminds me of the scene near the beginning of the film "Jason and the Argonauts" where the commander is looking at some guts on the ground and asking his advisor just how the hell good the tidings are going to be for his troop. There is so much uncertainty. It just seems that despite our best preparations, there are going to be events that will shuffle the deck again and again until some quarters out when there is some calm. It requires adjustments in outlook and narrative monthly, weekly, daily. It's insane.

    Can't understand AMZN valuations -- they're already so efficient there is no room for margin compression....

      There is room to turn their sights on other industries. The technology capacity, scale, customer base, and capital they can bring to bear is significant. Health insurance maybe?
