Market wraps 19th March 2021
Morning Bell - Jessica Amir
US Economic recovery stocks fell off their all-time high podium overnight as Bond yields spiked again. The US 10 year bond hit a yield of 1.7%, while the 30-year bond rate topped 2.5%. Bonds now offer a better yield than the average US Tech stocks, which pay an average 1.5% yield.
This is why we’ve seen the rotation out of US an Aussie tech stocks, and into companies with stronger balance sheets that and pay dividends.
What to watch today:
- The market is expected to pull back 0.6% on Friday and end lower across the week, marking the first fall in three weeks.
- Oil stocks are likely to see heavy profit taking today after the sector’s gained 63% in a year –
- Other Commodity stocks might be a shining light; Platinum, gold, silver and iron
- Keep an eye on some of the most traded stocks from yesterday. For our active trader desk, Bell Direct Advantage they were: Sayona Mining (ASX:SYA), Integral Diagnostics (ASX:IDX) and 88 Energy (ASX:88E)
- Chalice Mining (ASX:CHN) was given an upgrade by Bell Potter as Speculative BUY with new $6.35 target.
