The overall market is currently experiencing normal macro volatility.

Some of the largest moves in the market today include: Bitcoin has experienced an extreme move of +4.5%. Ethereum has experienced an extreme move of +4.5%. S&P 500 Index (US) has experienced a move of +0.5%.

UK producer prices dropped more than expected in January, with a year-on-year decrease of 0.6%, signaling easing inflationary pressures as costs for chemicals and petroleum products declined sharply.

Meanwhile, the UK’s inflation rate remained steady at 4% despite market expectations of an increase to 4.2%.

In contrast, US crude oil inventories surged by over 8 million barrels last week, far exceeding forecasts and marking the highest weekly gain since mid-November.

In European markets, speculation about ECB interest rates has been rife after comments from board member Piero Cipollone suggested that further tightening may not be necessary; investors await Christine Lagarde’s upcoming speech for clarity on this stance. Additionally, positive Economic Sentiment data provided some support to the Euro ahead of key GDP figures release while Asian equities dipped following Wall Street amidst recalibrated Fed rate cut expectations highlighted by speeches from Federal Reserve officials Goolsbee and Bostic later today.

Uber Technologies Inc | UBER $74.23 +7.6%
Industrials, Passenger Ground Transportation
Uber Technologies Inc’s stock price has surged +8.3% since the previous close. The company announced a $7 billion share repurchase authorization, reducing dilution caused by stock-based compensation and aligning with other tech companies that promise capital returns amid higher interest rates. Lyft’s positive earnings projection and strong demand for ride-hailing services also indicate growth opportunities for Uber. Additionally, Uber seems to be outperforming its sector peers in terms of price movement. 

Kraft Heinz Co | KHC $35.07 -3.0%
Consumer Staples, Packaged Foods & Meats
Kraft Heinz Co’s stock price declined significantly by -2.1% since the previous close. The company reported Q4 earnings, beating EPS estimates but missing revenue expectations. Analysts anticipate a sales drop in Q4 of approximately 5%. Kraft Heinz seems to be underperforming its sector peers recently. 

MGM Resorts International | MGM $43.77 -4.2%
Consumer Discretionary, Casinos & Gaming
MGM Resorts International’s stock price has fallen significantly (-4.8%) since the previous close. The decline may be influenced by their Q4 earnings report, which exceeded expectations with higher EPS and revenues due to strong performance in Las Vegas Strip Resorts and MGM China. Additionally, new partnerships with Marriott are seen as positive growth opportunities. Despite these positive results, MGM’s stock is underperforming its sector peers and potentially contributing to weakness in the overall sector. 

Consolidated Edison Inc | ED $89.00 +2.7%
Utilities, Multi-Utilities
Consolidated Edison Inc’s price has moved +2.7% since the previous close, potentially influenced by its upcoming Q4 2023 earnings announcement after market close on Feb 15, with an estimated EPS of $0.96 (previous: $0.81) and revenue estimate of $3.7B (previous: $4.0B). Additionally, it appears to be outperforming its sector peers in line with the broader market movement.

Information Technology, Application Software
Microstrategy Inc’s stock price has surged 8.2% since the previous close, likely influenced by its strong correlation with Bitcoin and CEO Michael Saylor’s bold statements driving recent performance. The stock has outperformed sector peers during this period of market movement.
