“Out of early reviews, with 70 S&P 500 outcomes and 90 in Europe, the bulk are beating the consensus projections,” Mislav Matejka, head of worldwide and European fairness technique at JP Morgan, mentioned in a word to shoppers early Monday. “The pattern set is comparatively small, however the inventory value response to the beats is worse than typical.”

Furthermore, JPMorgan checked out corporations issuing revenue warnings forward of second quarter earnings, and shares inside that group are down 10% or extra, the exception being some vitality and chemical shares, most likely due to their poor first half efficiency getting into July.

Backside line, JPMorgan does not count on second quarter earnings to provide the market a lot of a lift in contrast with the primary quarter, for a few causes. “Inventory value reactions generally could possibly be extra muted this time, or not less than any optimistic momentum won’t have legs,” Matejka wrote. “Forward of Q1, sentiment and positioning had been cautious, however the fairness market was robust coming into Q2 reporting season, suggesting buyside expectations are extra elevated, at the same time as analyst projections are subdued. Additionally, the query is whether or not the guidances will likely be raised on the again of quarterly beats, as there was some lack of momentum as we moved via the quarter, and China dataflow continues to disappoint.”
