‘Cash is probably not trash,’ says BNY Mellon Investment Management

Conventional wisdom suggests that holding cash in an inflationary environment is not recommended, but “cash is probably not trash anymore,” according to Aninda Mitra, head of Asia macro and investment strategy at BNY Mellon Investment Management.

Asked if cash and Treasury bills look attractive given the inverted yield curve, Mitra said he agreed, emphasizing the benefits of holding cash in U.S. dollars.

“I think that’s an area which still looks pretty good, it’s an extension of the overall long dollar story,” he said.

The U.S. dollar index has steadily climbed this year, from below 98 to above 111 as of Tuesday.

Watch fourth quarter earnings guidance more than third quarter actual numbers, S&P Global says

Fourth quarter earnings forecasts companies give when reporting third quarter results will be far more important to the market’s future direction than the actual third quarter numbers themselves, S&P Global believes.

“October brings earnings, with Q3 estimates already declining 7%, and the whisper numbers a bit more than that,” Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst wrote over the weekend. “The larger concern (than the actual numbers for Q3, when consumers were still spending) is the guidance for Q4, as consumers have pulled back, inflation continues and the Fed’s `adjustments’ will have a more substantial impact.”

Third quarter earnings for the S&P 500 are projected by analysts to grow 6.1% compared with the same quarter a year ago, and almost 18% over the second quarter of 2022, S&P Global said.

Next year’s estimates call for a 14.3% earnings growth over 2022, and a corresponding forward P/E ratio of 15.0.

Silverblatt also looked at typical performance for the S&P 500 in the month of October. “Historically, the index posts gains 57.4% of the time, with an average gain of 4.18% for the up months, a 4.67% average decrease for the down months and an overall average decrease of 0.46%,” he wrote.
