That the streak ended in February with the most spectacular equity meltdown since 2011 was a reminder that the foundation isn’t invincible. Indisputably, this will be another big quarter for profit growth.
After President Donald Trump’s tax cuts, the expected gain in S&P 500 income stands at 17 percent for the January-March period, the fastest in seven years. It’s less clear whether it’s enough to restore order in the market. An identical improvement was under way last quarter when rising bond yields and signs of a trade war sent stocks into a correction.
Asia week ahead: US earnings, Chinese Growth
Unexpected turns in political events swayed markets in the past weekFrom the relieving of tariffs tensions between US and China to the roller coaster ride with President Donald Trump’s Syria strike warnings, politics had been the epicentre for sending tremors through markets. Into the fresh week, these will remain themes to monitor alongside the barrage of data including China’s first quarter growth results.

- Trump tweets! Trade war! Executive insults!
- Enough. In the week ahead, investors should be able to refocus on the fundamentals of business.
- There always is a lot of noise in the investment markets. The job of the public markets is to sort through the noise, separating the meaningful from the trivial. Sometimes it happens instantaneous. Often what is deemed as consequential changes as time moves on.
