3 Pullback Stocks to Trade a Market Digesting New Inflation Data

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Uncategorized

Inflation persists through this summer as the second big economic report for the week was released on Thursday. With the economy running hot and COVID-19 cases on the rise, investors should stay away from breakout trades and focus on pullbacks… and I’ve picked out three of my favorites — and more in today’s stock market recap.

But first…

Stock Market Recap

In today’s stock market recap, global stocks are mixed this morning as investors digest this week’s key U.S. economic reports.

Wednesday’s rising Consumer Price Index data was followed by Thursday’s Producer Price Index (PPI) report, which showed producer prices also rose in July. The PPI rose at a 7.8% annual pace, and 1% month over month. Analyst consensus was 7.3% and 0.6%, respectively. 

The Federal Reserve has admitted inflation is running hotter than expected but kept its stance that inflation has been high due to temporary factors. Some of these include raw materials, the used car market and other general supply chain issues. The Fed has mentioned a possible taper in its bond-purchasing program could come earlier than expected. Rising COVID-19 cases may alter the timeline, however. Analysts expect possible government restrictions would slow down the economy — increasing the need for continued stimulus. 

Roger’s Radar: Top 3 Pullbacks for Thursday

Cognex Corp. (NASDAQ: CGNX) is the world’s leader in the machine vision industry. It designs and manufactures machine vision systems used to inspect surfaces of manufactured products. It has a five-year dividend growth of 1,927.27%! CGNX has pulled back to its 50-day moving average and will benefit from an expanding economy. 

The other two picks on my radar are REITs. The first is involved in health care and provides senior housing and medical offices. The second offers single-family homes as rental properties. 

In today’s video, you’ll discover how inflation is impacting U.S. stocks… which type of stocks to focus on right now… whether it’s best to stay with large or mid caps… and the top 3 pullbacks for Wednesday.

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
