The bank’s monthly global fund manager survey “screams macro capitulation, investor capitulation, start of policy capitulation,” strategists led by Michael Hartnett wrote in a note on Tuesday. They expect stocks to bottom in the first half of 2023 after the Federal Reserve finally pivots away from raising interest rates.

“Market liquidity has deteriorated significantly,” the strategists said, noting that investors have 6.3% of their portfolios in cash, the highest since April 2001, and that a net 49% of participants are underweight equities.

Nearly a record number of those surveyed said they expect a weaker economy in the next 12 months, while 79% forecast inflation will drop in the same period, according to the survey of 326 fund managers with $971 billion under management, which was conducted from Oct. 7 to Oct. 13.

“While the stock market was immune to the bleak sentiment till last month, it has started to better reflect investors’ pessimism,” Hartnett wrote.

As the earnings season gains traction, 83% of investors expect global profits to worsen over the next 12 months. A net 91% said global corporate profits are unlikely to rise 10% or more in the next year — the most since the global financial crisis — a sign that suggests further downside to S&P 500 earnings estimates, according to the strategists.

Global equities have rallied in recent days amid support from technical levels, changes in UK government policies and a focus on earnings. Hartnett and his team described the rally after a US inflation print last week as a “bear hug.”

Other survey highlights include:

In absolute terms, investors are most bullish on cash, health care, energy and staples, and most bearish on equities, UK and Eurozone stocks, as well as bonds

The most crowded trades are long US dollar, short Europe equities, long ESG assets, long oil, short emerging markets/China debt and equities as well as short UK debt and equity

A record high share of 68% see the dollar as overvalued

Investors see European sovereign-debt markets as the most likely source for a systemic credit event

Investors see rising odds of a policy pivot in the next 12 months, with 28% of participants seeing lower short-term rates within that timeframe

American Airlines Will Pay Millions Over Huge Passenger Problem

Few travel nightmares can be worse than packing small to avoid paying for a checked bag and then, upon arriving at the airport, being told that the bag is too big and needs to be checked anyway. At the same time, a recent study from IdeaWorks found that the percentage of revenue airlines derive from baggage fees has been rising steadily — 3.7% in 2019, 3.9% in 2020 and 4.6% in 2021. In February 2021, five passengers who traveled with American Airlines filed a class action lawsuit that accused the airline of incorrectly charging them baggage fees that they were not required to pay.

Retirement can mean a loss of identity — how to bring happiness to your next act

Struggling with carving out a new identity in retirement, or massaging the identity you had when working full time, can be a serious challenge. “That identity issue is so huge because we spend our entire life building up to who we’re supposed to be,” said Michael Kay, who recently retired from the Livingston, N.J., financial planning firm he founded in 2001.
