Lee has highlighted the 4,500 stage at the S&P 500 as a possible year-end goal, which represents possible upside of 14% from present ranges.

“As markets input the general weeks of 2022, buyers are doubting equities can rally into year-end, specifically after the November core PPI got here in at 0.38% (vs Side road +0.2%) given how hyper-sensitive markets are to incoming information,” Lee mentioned. “However as we glance into this vital week, we expect chances want shares.”

Those are the seven the explanation why Lee is bullish on shares and expects additional upside over the following couple of weeks, in keeping with the be aware.

1. “Inflation is falling like a rock.”

“The three-month annualized post-November core PPI is now 2.69% — consider that. It used to be greater than 11% in March 2022. So the +0.38% November PPI may well be above Side road, however the pattern is apparent,” Lee mentioned. 

Now all eyes are at the free up of this week’s November CPI document, and Lee expects a studying of 0.3%, which might constitute a significant damage in pattern, “as it might be two ‘comfortable’ CPIs consecutively,” Lee mentioned. 

2. “Equities have fallen in six of the final seven classes.”

“That is roughly the 9th time in 2022 this has came about. This has been adopted through robust bounces 10 days and 1 month later,” Lee mentioned, with median returns of three.1% and four.9%, respectively. 

3. “Russian war-inflation is useless.”

“Oil and wheat at the moment are 21% and 13% underneath the pre-invasion costs (the costs earlier than the parabolic surge) and the warfare continues to be ongoing. The inflation warfare is useless,” Lee mentioned.

4. The Fed can insert dovish language into FOMC commentary.

“The FOMC press convention does not should be solely hawkish. In reality, there may well be a ‘dovish’ amendment in language,” Lee mentioned. Since March 2022, the Fed has integrated a paragraph within the press convention that highlights Russia’s assault towards Ukraine as “developing further upward force on inflation.”

“Elimination of this language, in our view, would additionally allude to a possible shift within the Fed view on inflationary drivers,” Lee mentioned.

5. The Fed may just abandon its long-term 2% inflation goal.

“Economists are an increasing number of vocal in regards to the perception the Fed will capitulate at the 2% inflation goal. The FT op-ed through Olivier Blanchard, French Economist, argues a greater goal is 3% to 4% each from the standpoint [of] managing coverage charges and likewise for shoppers and salary earners. This is able to be an amazing shift and alter the trail of markets,” Lee mentioned.

6. Everyone seems to be bearish.

“The newest Goldman Sachs shopper survey displays of the ten imaginable trades for 2023, the plurality of purchasers are ‘quick S&P 500’ — yup, the consensus industry for 2023 is brief equities. Take into accounts that,” Lee mentioned.

7. Credit score is not falling aside.

“Credit score has outperformed equities and because the regression underneath displays, the rally in top yield option-adjusted spreads level to S&P 500 at 4,200. This implies the S&P 500 has upside and not using a additional rally in credit score. However we expect credit score can additional rally if November CPI is comfortable,” Lee mentioned.
