March Update

MHB Equity Management LLC

The stock market remained quite volatile and dropped sharply in March.  It was unnerved by tariffs and the potential for a trade war, ongoing Fed tightening, and stock-specific worries regarding companies within the market-leading technology sector.  These are all legitimate concerns, especially given high valuations.  At the same time, however, a series of positive factors should not be ignored – robust earnings growth, the corporate tax cut, and low interest rates.  The benchmark 10-year treasury yield still stands at only 2.74%.

Commentary on selected individual stocks

Procter & Gamble – I expect the stock slump to prove temporary due to the power of its brands that has been built through years of innovation and customer focus. 

Exxon Mobil – the stock is valued as though oil is at a lower price than the current $65. 

Apple – dominant consumer position and still reasonable valuation, but it is no longer cheap, and the company faces some headwinds.
