My Top Stock and Sector as CPI Inflation Data Tanks Market

by | Sep 13, 2022 | Market Updates

The major indexes are tanking after a hotter-than-expected inflation report — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

Month-over-month and year-over-year Consumer Price Index figures came in at 0.1% and 8.3%, respectively, compared to estimates of -0.1% and 8.1%.

As I mentioned in Monday’s stock market recap, I’m most concerned with the YOY CPI excluding food and energy prices. This figure also disappointed, coming in at 6.3% versus consensus estimates of 6.1%.

And remember, I said we wanted to see that number come in below 5.9%, which was the previous reading.

With Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell vowing to remain aggressive with interest rate hikes until inflation is under control, the CME FedWatch Tool now rates the probability of a 0.75% hike at 80%, with a 20% chance of a full 1% hike.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss what to expect from the bond market… if tech or blue chips will move the most… an update on chip stocks… why I’m worried about consumer discretionary stocks… key levels on the major indices… how to interpret the CPI report… the sector that continues to lag behind the overall market… plus which stock continues to lead, and which continues to lag.

P.S. Are You Prepared for Sept. 20? 

There’s a straightforward way I analyze the market that often leads me to the biggest moves in the investment world before they happen.

And there’s no funny business required with the strategy I’ll share in a special live event — at no cost!

It’s based on an age-old secret that Vanguard’s John Bogle calls “the most important rule for investors to learn.”

And without understanding this basic principle, trading will only get more challenging.

All you need to do is cut out all the noise in the market, forget about all 4,000 stocks and focus on 11 sectors…

The time to prepare your portfolio is now.
