Telemus Weekly Market Review June 1st - June 5th, 2020

    | May 14, 2021

    June 1 – June 5 Week in review

    The markets continued to rally with most of the gain coming on Friday after the surprising jobs report. The S&P 500 rose 4.9%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average 6.8%, and the small cap Russell 2000 8.1%. The Nasdaq Composite was the laggard, increasing just 2.1%, but set a new intraday high in the process.

    For good reason, the May Employment Situation Report received the most attention last week, as it came in much better than expected. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 2.509 million, nonfarm private payrolls increased by 3.094 million, and the unemployment rate decreased to 13.3% from 14.7% in April.

    All 11 S&P 500 sectors ended the week with gains, but it was the cyclical sectors, which stand to benefit the most from an increase in economic activity, that outperformed.

    The battered energy, financials, and industrials sectors all rose more than 10%, while the health care sector barely closed higher for the week. Every other S&P 500 sector rose at least 2.0%. Energy stocks were buoyed by the continued rise in oil prices

    Earlier in the week, investors continued to hear positive business updates from companies, including American Airlines, Visa, and Lyft.

    American Airlines shares surged 77% last week, most of which came after the company announced plans to increase its domestic flying schedule for the summer travel season due to improving demand. Boeing shares rose 41%.

    The price action was described as a "pain trade" due to the market's relentless gains that appeared to cause some chasing action from investors who felt like they were missing the boat. The gains weren't limited to just the U.S. markets. The iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF rose 8.5%, and the Europe Stoxx 600 rose 7.1%.

    In Europe, the ECB increased its pandemic emergency purchase program by 600 billion euros to a total of 1.350 trillion. The euro continued to rise against the dollar on hopes for a stronger fiscal union.

    Longer-dated U.S. Treasuries sold off last week, which drove yields noticeably higher. The benchmark 10 year yield rose 25 basis points to 0.90%, while the 2 year yield increased six basis points to 0.21%.

    In other markets the U.S. Dollar Index weakened last week closing at 96.95. WTI crude rose $4.17 to or almost 12% to close at $39.50 on Friday. Gold lost a little bit of its luster, falling to $1,688.50 an ounce.
