Our current Bull vs Bear debate thread on current market conditions below: 👇

1) The Federal Reserve will not go away.
2) Effective tax rates support EPS loss from current economic conditions.
3) The most hedged against the pandemic account for 45% of the Nasdaq. $AAPL, $AMZN, $FB, $GOOG, $MSFT
4) US financial system counter-cyclical by Dodd-Frank.

1) The consumer isn't spending much at all to start Q3.
2) Covid spikes continue & regulations tighten.
3) Possible peak pandemic profits by #BigTech.
4) China & US tensions are very high.
5) Stimulus bill will be harder to pass with markets being more stable.
2) $NKE (left); $MU (top right); $AMZN (bottom right); all less than 15%; $NKE was 1.7% & $MU was 6%; $AMZN approx 15% because they swallowed up the world during the pandemic.
Bear sources:

1) Several consumer sentiment data as well as spending for the past month, paired with continuous jobless claims.
3) We don't need to explain to many of you how big $AAPL $FB $AMZN $MSFT beat. But 2 things, $FB had advertisers leave in droves and then still nailed EPS, while $AMZN delivered a beat 5x the amount of anticipated EPS. Those are insanely strong numbers that are huge outliers.
5) Pure speculation to politics but now that it's not the end of the world financially, we only expect Washington to do what it does best and not help out the people.
We hope we presented a bit of insight into the risks of the current market environment for US equity financial markets here through this thread and hope all is well and have a very safe week everyone!
