Five Charts That Matter

Despite relevant data that suggests inflation is abating, the yield curve, growth of money supply, home sales declines, and historical patterns of bear markets all point to a meaningful slowdown coming in 2023.

The debate between those who believe recession is avoidable and those who do not is unresolved. To us, whether it is called a recession or not is less relevant than the fact that the Fed is raising rates, withdrawing liquidity and ignoring signs of diminishing inflation.

Tomorrow’s Markets Won’t Resemble Today’s

Confidence is growing that inflation is decelerating and Fed rate hikes are in their late stages. However, the follow-through impact from a year of radical monetary tightening is still to be felt in US employment and corporate profits in the coming year. While we see stronger long-term returns on this year’s valuation collapse, for now we have maintained a defensive asset allocation with large overweights in US high grade fixed income, and underweights in riskier equities.
Both an economic contraction and a trough in the economy are likely to occur within 2023. This sets the stage for opportunity to reallocate to greater equity and credit exposure in the coming year.

  • Rate shock, reduced liquidity raising correlation between markets, worsening risk-adjusted returns.
  • How do recessions end? Production contracts faster than demand, setting the stage for recovery at a pace that is faster than demand.
  • Equities have made a large down payment on future recovery. Yet US equity markets have never bottomed before a recession has begun.
  • A note on dividend growers: US adding more value than non-US
  • Rates Jumped Sharply, but Absolute Yield Levels Below Long-Term Averages.
  • Given October talk of Fed step-down, along with lower inflation readings, “little fires” contained for now
  • China: The Long-run Outlook May be Clouded, But the Near-Term Seems Unusually Depressed and Likely to Recover.
  • Gold: Real rate pressure on. Is gold already forecasting weaker inflation?

The Expansion will Endure: Seeking Sustained Returns

The hope that 8 billion vaccinations and widespread population exposure to the Delta variant would be sufficient to subdue COVID-19 turned out to be false when Omicron struck. At the same time, Citi analysts became convinced that, for 2022 and 2023, the global economic recovery that is now underway will endure and ultimately outlast the pandemic. In short, we believe the world economy and equity markets have not peaked and have room to grow.

Citi analysts do not believe there will be a rapid return to normal anytime soon. In fact, there is a new normal evolving now that is central to our positive economic outlook. This new normal consists of the establishments of a data-enabled, decentralized, flexible and highly efficient economic order. Within it, the accelerated adoption of technology across every industry and every business is a necessity.
