Earnings questions, potential recession means more sales could be to come

The Dow Jones and S&P 500 have dropped for six days in a row, with many of them seeing broad selling typical of so-called “washout” days.

Sometimes that can be a contrarian buying signal on Wall Street, but many investment professionals are skeptical that the selling is over. One reason is that earnings expectations for next year still show strong growth, which would be unlikely in a recession.

“We know that if we start to see a turnaround in two-year yields … and if we start to see a turnaround in the dollar, that gives us the ability to recover from these extreme oversold conditions,” said Andrew Smith, director of investments. strategic officer of Delos Capital Advisors in Dallas. “But I’m having a hard time reconciling in my mind that the earnings story will be as good as we hope.”

Also, dramatic moves in the bond and currency markets mean “something broke” and it may be wise to wait for that information to come to light, Smith said.

On the positive side, Smith pointed to a strong job market and signs of continued travel spending as a sign that the US economy can avoid a major recession.
