  1. Inflation Coming? (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hey guys. I'm so worried about this. Most countries around the globe, particularly the U.S. are going to reopen soon. People will then have to spend most of the money they got from stimulus check/social support they got from the government, which would drive up the demand for goods and services. This increase in demand would also increase the prices of goods. I was wondering how do you guys prepare for inflation. Should I liquidate all my stocks at a loss and then buy assets that protect against inflation? Or should I just hold them for the long term like I was supposed to do? ​ Also if the fed is going to increase the interest rates back to where it was before, it would hurt the prices of stocks. Are you also expecting another dip in the stock market as we are moving forward to the economy's reopening?   submitted by   /u/Useful-Stayooo [link]   [comments]

  3. How does inflation impact the stock market, if it really does end up coming? (27/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Many predict inflation may become huge in the coming months. Wondering if this is supposed to be a bullish or bearish thing to expect? Some tell me it'll lead to another bull run since prices going up, means stock market prices going up with it. Others tell me it means people will be hesitant to spend money, impacting businesses, thus drop stock market prices down, what's the right answer?   submitted by   /u/LifeInAction [link]   [comments]

  5. Inflation and the S&P 500, which way is up? (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Historically stocks have been considered a partial hedge against inflation. So with inflation on the horizon I thought it would be interesting to discuss the effects of inflation on the price of the S&P 500. Can we actually expect to see inflation rise? The argument for inflation is pretty straight forward. Over the last few months we have seen an increase in government stimulus, with another $1.9 trillion added today. Meanwhile the pandemic has decreased spending. With the end to the pandemic coming into view this means that we could be looking at a near future where a population newly flush with cash all run out to buy things they have been putting off buying. In this scenario demand outpaces supply driving demand-pull inflation. This sentiment has been endorsed by the fed who generally believed to be a good sign for the economy. So it does seem likely that we will see an increase in inflation. Though it's just a prediction, and we all know how those usually turn out. What effect will rising inflation have on the price of the S&P 500? With rising inflation, buying power decreases. This means companies pay more to produce goods while consumer purchasing decreases due to lost buying power. Meanwhile bond yields tend to increase pulling money away from stocks. On the surface this seems like an open and shut case for inflation driving lower market returns. So then why are stocks traditionally considered a hedge against inflation? The usual answer for this seems to be that companies balance sheets typically increase in proportion to inflation. Moreover the whole driving force for demand-pull inflation is increased demand resulting in companies raising prices and ultimately resulting in increased profits. So inflation is good for stock prices then? Didn't we all just agree it's bad? The truth, like so many things in the market, seems to be that the effect of inflation on the market is inconsistent and depends on a great many more factors than just inflation itself. So reddit, what's your take? What factors do you think will influence the current pro-inflation market and what do you see as the outcome? As always, I am not a financial advisor, and this is not financial advice.   submitted by   /u/xsist [link]   [comments]

  7. Analysis of Powell's speech (17/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I am so busy these days that I haven't come to share my views with you. Just now Powell came out to speak, but it was still insipid, but DK noticed that what he said had kind of followed the Wall Street script. Powell said that inflation will rise in the coming months compared with the same period in 2020, and some of them are deliberately reminding everyone that he has read the minds of Wall Street. According to the inflation data in February a few days ago, everyone feels that the increase is not very large compared with that in 2020. Wall Street has laid the groundwork here. Oil prices rose a lot in March this year, and inflation was the lowest point in March last year. So if you go ahead with the script, when you release inflation data in March, there will be a lot of hype about an increase compared with last year, causing market panic. So here DK gives everyone an early warning, either prepare cash or avoid the risk of panic in advance. Just this month, 1400 US dollars in relief funds are coming in one after another, and many people are running in. Early next month is the season for harvesting retail investors. Let's wait and see.   submitted by   /u/ArkTracker [link]   [comments]

  9. Why do bond yields rising matter? (26/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Why does bond yield rising matter? I’ve read that it’s because of expectations of inflation and the increase of interest rates to combat said inflation. Higher interest rates hurting the stock market makes sense. Bond yields going up in anticipation of inflation makes sense as people don’t want to to buy bonds when there is high inflation, which increases yield prices But does bond yield prices DIRECTLY affect the stock market? Or is it just that as expectations of inflation increase, bond yields go up and the stock market is also hurt, tho not by bond yields going up. So is the real problem the expectations of inflation and ensuing increase of interest rates and not the bond yields going up?   submitted by   /u/Django_lover [link]   [comments]

  10. Transitory inflation? (18/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Can someone explain how inflation will be “transitory” (As J-Powell has referenced)? I can see how the exorbitant prices of raw materials will come down as global supply chain bottlenecks eventually resolve themselves, but when has a consumer business (such as a restaurant) ever taken back an increase in menu prices? I tend to side with the fed regarding the outlook on inflation in the near future. I don’t believe we will see a level of inflation that will decimate our economy and render the dollar worthless. However, I do expect higher levels of inflation than normal. And I’m not too sure about Powell’s comments that inflation is on track to mildly exceed 2%. I think it will be a bit higher than that. What do you make of Powell’s comment and what is your outlook for 2021?   submitted by   /u/HotspurN17 [link]   [comments]

  11. I don’t see anyone talking about Inflation (12/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Is this on anyone’s radar? After the sell off this week and the Consumer Price Index figure forecasted to be 3.6% coming out later today, is this not concerning? Given the exponential increase in prices of commodities such as lumber, steel, iron ore to name a few, one of the leading indicators of inflation are rising production costs from China. How does the Fed tackle inflation? Raising interest rates and de-valuing government bonds. This will cause a huge sell off in global stock markets. The stimulus packages injected vast amounts of money into the economy but there is too much money in circulation. This is all just the delayed effect of the global pandemic. There has to be an opposite reaction.   submitted by   /u/slimshady1225 [link]   [comments]

  13. Inflation and stock prices (long term) (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Today I was thinking, and I wanted some opinions on my thought. Inflation is bad for the market, yes. At the same time, though, doesn’t inflation naturally inflate stock prices? I imagine in 1920 a stock trading at $3,000 (Amazon) would be way too expensive for the average person to buy. These days, most people can afford a share of Amazon. I know there are a lot of factors at play here, just trying to put it in Layman’s terms. So my question is, with the power of $1 constantly decreasing, doesn’t that mean share prices would naturally increase over time?   submitted by   /u/DrewD_1847 [link]   [comments]

  17. Fear of inflation overhyped and baseless. (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Fear of inflation is overhyped. The technology advancement is such a strong deflationary force in the recent decade that we have had trouble generating inflation for decades. With all the advancement and increase in productivity, inflation will not be able to run free, especially in consumer stable and essentials. Is there bubble in asset? Yes, in some selected sectors, but when considering the amount of liquidity and low interest rate, the market is absolutely not in a bubble. I think the spike in interest rate last week is short lived and the fed will not do a thing but welcome the mild 1.5-2% inflation that we will see in the coming years. Just my thought, please share.   submitted by   /u/sendokun [link]   [comments]

  21. Another inflation gauge comes in hot with producer prices jumping 6.2% in April from a year ago (13/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    U.S. producer prices increased more than expected in April in another hotter-than-expected inflation report Thursday. The Producer Price Index rose 0.6% last month, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The gauge spiked 6.2% for the 12 months ended in April, marking the largest increase since the agency started tracking the data in 2010. Economists polled by FactSet were expecting a 0.3% increase in April for the PPI over the previous month. Year over year, the index was forecast to rise by 3.8%, according to FactSet. The core PPI, which excludes volatile items like foods, energy and trade services, rose 0.7% in April from the previous month and jumped 4.6% year over year. The increase from a year ago was the biggest jump since 2014 with the department first calculated the data. The Producer Prices Index came into focus after Wednesday’s consumer prices report showed hotter-than-expected inflation and triggered a big sell-off in the stock market. The Labor Department reported that the prices American consumers pay for goods and services accelerated at their fastest pace since 2008 last month with the Consumer Price Index spiking 4.2% from a year ago. Producer prices measure the prices paid to producers as opposed to prices on the consumer level. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/13/producer-prices-april-2021.html   submitted by   /u/John-Galt-Lover [link]   [comments]

  22. The stock market spiked up in 2020 due to inflation, and it will continue to grow because of it (12/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Statements from the media saying how inflation fears are kept in check due to lower interest rates, and how inflation causes growth stocks to fall make no sense. Here's why... Note: I'm not an economist, so I don't have all the details, but I believe the main idea is correct. I'd love to hear other perspectives. First, definition of inflation from Wikipedia: In economics, inflation (or less frequently, price inflation) is a general rise in the price level in an economy over a period of time. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services; consequently, inflation reflects a reduction in the purchasing power per unit of money – a loss of real value in the medium of exchange and unit of account within the economy We experienced high inflation in 2020 due to LOW interest rates. There was high demand for money, but the supply of money was increased even more (M3 increased by almost 25% in 2020) due to increased debt at low interest rates. This increased supply of money, or debt, caused spike in prices of stocks, materials, real estates, etc. Items that don't get consumed more when people have more money weren't affected as much. Prices started to go down this year as interest rates rose. Now that interest rates seem to be kept down and more stimulus are coming, I believe there will be rise in inflation again and stock prices will grow. I don't know if it will be as much as 2020 though. On a side note, the stimulus and increased debt helped those in need in the short-term, but it made wealth building assets more out of reach to the poor, and at the expense of people saving cash. Unless interest rates rise and bring down prices, I believe the gap between asset owners and the poor will continue to increase, along with inflation and more debt. How long that will be sustainable, I have no idea.   submitted by   /u/cspr1980 [link]   [comments]

  33. US Gov misreporting about rent inflation (13/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Anyone who has renewed a lease recently has probably been shocked to see the rate increase dramatically over the last year. Most private source show between a 10-15% increase in average rent in the last year. https://www.apartmentlist.com/research/national-rent-data The US CPI however has only shown a 2.8% increase in the shelter category. https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/cpi.pdf What could be causing this huge discrepancy between what everyone is noticing and what the government is reporting. I know the gov has a bias to report lower inflation Because high inflation leads to higher interest rates and social security payouts which both would are huge expenditures by the gov. Higher interest rates could also lower home prices and stocks valuations. So what do you guys think? Is the gov purposefully misreporting the rent aspect of CPI to try to keep interest rates lower for longer?   submitted by   /u/Sea-Consideration495 [link]   [comments]

  35. Question about inflation and has it already been reflected in the stock market, or are we going to see prices skyrocket across multiple sect (20/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello all. I'm newish to investing. I'm 33 and have a general question about the recent massive influx of printed money and how that might affect stock prices going forward. Actually unrelated to that, I wonder, what is your opinion on this bull market ending and crashing hard? To the contrary, my mind is thinking that, in theory, isn't every stock undervalued right now due to the recent 4trillion in printed money, or have we seen the market respond accurately to that already? If not, isn't it a no-brainer to invest in some top stocks in each sector? I'm starting to see prices everywhere start to slowly creep up in everyday life (fast food is insanely expensive now). I hear companies like BOA increasing their minimum hourly wage to $25 by 2025. I see Chipotle, Target and other companies like Amazon paying between 15-17 an hour for basic work. Again, wouldn't this mean the current prices we're seeing in the stock market are technically "undervalued" and not accurate meaning they should all go up significantly in the next year, 2 or 5? Or will we see a sideways or bear market in the coming years? I understand this is a broad generalization I'm making, but would like to get some more seasoned advice around the general theme I'm presenting. Thanks for reading.   submitted by   /u/arcadesandguitars [link]   [comments]

  37. Inflation rises by record highs! Is it time to sell stocks? (15/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The inflation story keeps getting worse. UK’s consumer prices rose to a huge 3% in August compared to the same month last year. This is also a 0.9 percentage points increase from July’s inflation levels of 2.1%, the highest on record since the current price index was started in 2006.  The red flags were already there, when inflation first increased above the Bank of England’s comfort level of 2%. And now this has happened too. It can be particularly worrying when seen in conjunction with growth numbers. In July, the UK’s growth almost stalled from the month before. This is despite the fact that all restrictions were lifted during the month.  It’s not just inflation, it may be stagflation High inflation and low growth, if continued, can be a policy maker’s nightmare. Stagflation, as the phenomenon is called, limits policy options available to stabilise the economy again. If interest rates are increased to control inflation, then growth suffers even more. And if government spending is increased to stimulate growth, inflation can rise even further. Finding the right balance may not always be easy.  In the meantime, if there is no growth, it means people’s incomes cannot rise either. And at the same time, buying power declines fast because of rising inflation. This can further reduce demand for goods and services, dragging the economy back even more. Needless to say, this is bad news for the stock markets too.  Why I am not selling But as scary as it appears, I do not think now is the time to sell. There are three reasons for this. The first is that so far we have very few data points to work with. As far as inflation goes, it is widely understood to be transitory. In fact, the Office of National Statistics (ONS), which publishes the inflation number, says in its release from earlier today that the large increase from last month is a base effect. Last year in August, the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme was underway, which allowed eateries to charge lower prices for food. In comparison, this year’s prices look artificially higher as a result.  Other increases, like that in transport can also be seen as post-lockdown adjustments. Fuel prices have risen this year and so has demand for used cars. As we are now allowed to travel, air fares have also contributed to inflation. How long these increases continue remains to be seen. As supply catches up with demand, prices could fall again.   Also, as far as growth goes, these are only a single month’s numbers. Quarterly growth figures showed an impressive 22% increase for the UK economy from the year before in the April-June quarter. Given the uncertainty attached with the latest numbers at this time, as the ONS points out, I would not react too much to monthly numbers.  Investing in the right stocks Further, some of the biggest stocks listed on the London Stock Exchange are multi-nationals.

  38. Fear of inflation overhyped and baseless. (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Fear of inflation is overhyped. The technology advancement is such a strong deflationary force in the recent decade that we have had trouble generating inflation for decades. With all the advancement and increase in productivity, inflation will not be able to run free, especially in consumer stable and essentials. Is there bubble in asset? Yes, in some selected sectors, but when considering the amount of liquidity and low interest rate, the market is absolutely not in a bubble. I think the spike in interest rate last week is short lived and the fed will not do a thing but welcome the mild 1.5-2% inflation that we will see in the coming years. Just my thought, please share. Also, can we propose to the mods to reduce meme pictures and postings, honest this is getting tired seeing all the threads being buried behind meme pictures and posts.   submitted by   /u/sendokun [link]   [comments]

  39. Inflation is actually in the norm for the decade (11/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    There is a lot of talk about inflation and how it is supposedly spiking and very high. The May 2021 CPI reported yesterday shows a 5% jump YoY in all categories with an apparently HUGE jump of 28.5 % YoY when looking at energy. However it seems that most people, and the media, are forgetting that 1 year ago, May 2020 was when the whole economy was depressed due to the lockdowns. For energy in particular, in May 2020 the oil futures unprecedently went negative! The apparent YoY spike is actually due to a base effect, or that the denominator of your calculation is smaller than usual. You can take a look at the 20-year monthly CPI increase here: https://www.bls.gov/charts/consumer-price-index/consumer-price-index-by-category-line-chart.htm For all categories, in May 2020 the CPI YoY increase was 0.1% . To smooth over the Covid crash, we can look at the CPI increase between May 2021 and May 2019. Mathematically this is the geometric average and it comes out to what you'd expect: 2.5% . As you can see on the graph, the 2.5% YoY is actually quite average for the period of 2016-2019. This means that the current value of the CPI is roughly what we would have got had there been no covid and the usual inflation growth. For energy, which apparently had the huge spike, the case is even stronger that this is simply a base effect, indicating the economy is returning to normal. The YoY increase on May 2020 was -18.9%. If you take the geometric average: square root( 0.811 * 1.285) you get an average increase of ONLY 2% . I say only, because the average CPI increase over the last year has been as high as 8-9%. So 2% increase is actually close to nothing. So what is the take away? Inflation fears are overblown and the Fed is right to say that this is a temporary effect. We are returning to normal, it just seems much more because we've been locked down for a year and prices were depressed due to the lockdown. In particular, I would load up on tech/growth stocks which took a hit due to rising inflation. The numbers simply don't point to the fears that we will enter a new era of high inflation. Tldr; inflation is not real, buy growth stocks.   submitted by   /u/LudovicoKM [link]   [comments]

  40. Rise of carbon dioxide prices in Europe (24/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Since the beginning of the year, the price of carbon has jumped more than 70 percent, reaching levels of over 55 euros per tonne. The direct causes of the increase are: Added oversight. The enshrining in the law of the ambitious target of reducing gas emissions by 55 percent by the end of the decade. The trend (price increase) can be seen intensifying in mid-April and mid-May after the EU announced the submission of the law and the approval of the wording in parliament. At the same time, the extreme cold wave that hit Europe in early January, and returned in early April, caused increased use of heating solutions that produce significant carbon dioxide emissions. leading analysts to increase their forecasts on the price of Carbon dioxide. On May 24–25, the European Council will convene for a special meeting to discuss the issue of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions, and provide further guidance on the issue. It is likely that the meeting will have an impact on the price of carbon. Analysts disagree about the rate of growth in the price of carbon, Some claim it will continue to climb throughout the year to levels of over 100 euros per tonne, and some claim it will stabilize at around 40 in the coming year but will grow slowly until it at least doubles by the end of the decade. source: https://blog.tradint.io/whats-driving-the-huge-jump-in-carbon-dioxide-prices-in-europe-this-year-6af1c37fac26   submitted by   /u/elonfan1 [link]   [comments]

  44. Upcoming Inflation? (30/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Some people are starting to say they see a post-pandemic inflationary run coming? How realistic do you think that is? How would you respond? My understanding is that for normal inflation protection many would tend to move toward commodities (metals, ore, wood). I think that maybe covers you from the government debt side of the house but I don’t know if that works here for overall supply drops (companies failing) and demand increases (pent up demand). Thoughts? (Talking from a US perspective here, but all opinions welcome! ??) Edit: I know that ABSOLUTELY NO ONE knows where anything is going, but if you had the feeling inflation was coming what would you do?   submitted by   /u/spaceEngineeringDude [link]   [comments]
