Treasury yields fall amid US-China trade talks; Fed minutes in focus

U.S. government debt prices were higher on Wednesday as investors watched out for developments in the latest round of U.S.-China trade talks.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note sank to around 2.634 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond slipped to 2.978 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Fixed income traders are keeping an eye on the latest global trade developments, after U.S. and Chinese officials met for a fresh set of discussions on Tuesday. Higher level talks are expected to arrive later in the week, the White House said Monday.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the March 1 deadline for the two nations to reach a deal was not a “magical date,” hinting at an extension to the target date.

Meanwhile, market players will keep an eye out for Federal Reserve minutes from the central bank’s January meeting, which are due to be published Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET.

In other Fed news, New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said Tuesday that he was content with the current level of U.S. interest rates. The policymaker said he didn’t see any reason to hike rates again except in the event of surprising growth or inflation data.

The Fed’s raising of rates four times last year was a big point of anxiety for the markets, with market players nervous about the pace of the central bank’s stimulus tightening. The institution paused its once quarterly rate hikes last month, amid concerns of a potential slowdown in economic growth.

US Treasury yields lower amid US-China trade talks

U.S. government debt prices rose on Tuesday as investors awaited details from the latest round of U.S.-China trade talks.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note slipped to 3.661 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond fell to 3.993 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Fixed income traders turned their attention to the latest session of trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing. The White House said Monday that a new session of trade discussions would take place Tuesday, with higher level talks due later this week.

Tensions between the two countries have heightened as they attempt to strike a deal to prevent any further escalation in tariffs. China on Monday accused the U.S. of blocking its industrial development by claiming Chinese mobile gear could pose a cybersecurity threat to countries rolling out next-generation 5G networks.

Washington has been putting particular pressure on Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, and is attempting to extradite Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou over charges of bank and wire fraud to violate Iran sanctions. The company’s founder Ren Zhengfei — who is also Meng’s father — labelled the move “politically motivated” in an interview with the BBC Monday.

Elsewhere, traders will be on the lookout for the NAHB housing market index on Tuesday, and are anticipating minutes from the Federal Reserve’s latest policy meeting and other economic data later in the week.

Meanwhile Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester is due to give a speech about the economy and monetary policy at Newark, Delaware, on Tuesday.

In auctions news, $45 billion in 13-week Treasury bills and $39 billion in 26-week Treasury bills will be auctioned on Tuesday.

Markets are now only hoping US-China tariffs don't get worse on March 1, JP Morgan says

Markets have lowered their bar for what kind of U.S.-China trade headlines they’d cheer, a J.P. Morgan Asset Management global market strategist, Hannah Anderson, said Friday.

Markets have been on edge for months about trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies. An American delegation led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is meeting in Beijing this week with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He and his team. Discussions are expected to conclude Friday.

While markets may have at one point hoped for those negotiations to yield a resolution to the ongoing trade war, investors will now be satisfied if Washington simply opts to push back its deadline for additional tariff penalties on China, Anderson said.

“I believe we have seen expectations move from assuming China and the U.S. will resolve their differences during this 90-day negotiating period to assuming that talks would be a success if the U.S. doesn’t raise or apply more tariffs on March 1,” she said. “This shift reflects how easy it would be for policymakers to move the goalpost and declare victory — and how eager markets, fatigued after a year of trade headlines, are to move trade issues to the back burner.”

Stashing cash finally pays, thanks to high-yield savings accounts

If you’ve stashed some cash in a savings account, this is your time to shine. As a result of the increase, savings rates are now more than 2.4 percent, up from 0.1 percent, on average, before the Federal Reserve started increasing its benchmark rate in 2015. “If you’re not earning upwards of 2 percent on an online bank then you’re really missing out,” said Mandi Woodruff, MagnifyMoney’s executive editor.

Stashing cash finally pays, thanks to high-yield savings accounts

If you’ve stashed some cash in a savings account, this is your time to shine.

Signs of rising inflation, which pushed the Fed into hiking rates beginning in 2015, are finally having a significant effect on the annual percentage yield banks pay consumers on their money.

As a result of the increase, savings rates are now more than 2.4 percent, up from 0.1 percent, on average, before the Federal Reserve started increasing its benchmark rate in 2015. (You can earn even more with certificates of deposit.)

“If you’re not earning upwards of 2 percent on an online bank then you’re really missing out,” said Mandi Woodruff, MagnifyMoney’s executive editor.

In 2018, high-yielding savings accounts even outperformed the stock market for the first time in over a decade.

“Cash was the lone investment class to generate positive returns in 2018,” said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate.com. “Anytime markets are volatile, it’s the money you have tucked away that helps you sleep at night.”

Cramer Remix: CenturyLink’s slashed dividend isn’t a huge surprise

If you ask CNBC’s Jim Cramer, reaching for a stock’s dividend yield is one of the dumbest mistakes an investor can make. “If you see a stock sporting a yield that’s well in excess of what you can get elsewhere, I think you should be skeptical,” he said Thursday on “Mad Money.” “Most likely, it’s not a bargain, it’s a sign that the dividend is going to be cut.” But on Wednesday, management slashed the dividend from $2.16 a share to $1.00, saying they would focus on creating value in other ways.

Cramer Remix: CenturyLink's slashed dividend isn't a huge surprise

If you ask CNBC’s Jim Cramer, reaching for a stock’s dividend yield is one of the dumbest mistakes an investor can make.

“If you see a stock sporting a yield that’s well in excess of what you can get elsewhere, I think you should be skeptical,” he said Thursday on “Mad Money.” “Most likely, it’s not a bargain, it’s a sign that the dividend is going to be cut.”

Cramer flagged the cautionary tale of the stock of CenturyLink, an old-school telephone and data service provider which, until recently, had the largest yield in the S&P 500. But on Wednesday, management slashed the dividend from $2.16 a share to $1.00, saying they would focus on creating value in other ways. Shares fell to a new 52-week low.

Referencing his November warning about the stock, Cramer said he saw this coming based on what happened to two other, similar companies whose stocks are now too small for him to mention on air.

“Over the years, their CEOs repeatedly told me that their dividends were safe. But … this part of the telco industry [is] a dinosaur. Their stocks gradually went lower as their revenues shrank, making their yields seem more attractive. Management insisted that the market had it wrong and their dividends were safe,” the “Mad Money” host explained.

But when their stocks went from near $100 a share to the single digits, that turned out to be totally wrong. And while CenturyLink has a better balance sheet, Cramer implored investors to learn a lesson from its cut and do their own homework.

“With CenturyLink, it was obvious to anyone with discipline that the sky-high yield was a red flag, even as many analysts failed to see the cut coming,” he said. “Some things are simply too good to be true, and a stock with an 11.5 percent yield? That’s one of them.”

US Treasury yields higher after tentative deal to avoid a government shutdown

ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, was higher at around 2.6823 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also higher at 3.0159 percent. Market sentiment got a boost on news U.S. lawmakers had secured a tentative deal on border security funding on Monday. The drafted agreement — which congressional aides said did not contain funds for a border wall — could help avert another partial government shutdown due to begin from Saturday.

Wells Fargo cuts rate hike forecast, bond yield targets

As bond yields fall on global growth fears, Wells Fargo is making some changes.

This month, the firm cut both its year-end Federal Reserve interest rate hike forecast and bond yield targets. However, the firm’s global head of interest rate strategy said the decision has little to do with an economic slowdown abroad.

“It boils down to the Fed,” Michael Schumacher said Thursday on CNBC’s “Futures Now.” “What does the Fed care about most? Does it care about European growth? Probably not a huge amount.”

Based on recent Fed commentary and Chairman Jerome Powell’s more dovish comments about the economy over the past few months, Schumacher said a readjustment of the firm’s expectations was necessary.

“It’s pretty difficult to call for the Fed to hike two or three times. We were at two. We debated quite a bit,” he said. “We can’t really allow for two. So, we’ll go with one rate hike for now for 2019.”

Schumacher, however, does not believe the move will create an ominous treasury yield inversion. When the 2-year and 10-year Treasury yield invert, it historically points to impending economic troubles.

“If there’s one more hike, would it cause the curve to invert? We doubt it,” he said. “The central banks have such massive portfolios. They’ve distorted those market rates. So even if the curve inverts, we think a recession is unlikely.”

He expected the sole hike of the year would come in the beginning of third quarter — which would likely be the last of the cycle. It’s in line with the results from CNBC’s latest Fed Survey which indicates the Wall Street is also predicting one rate hike.

Along with the Fed rate forecast change, Schumacher and his team lowered its year-end treasury yield targets.

The expectation is now for the 2-Year Treasury yield to end the year at 2.75% from 2.95% while the 10-Year Treasury yield dipped to 3.10 percent from 3.30 percent.

On Friday, they hit their lowest levels since February 1.

Cramer’s game plan: Next week’s action hinges on US-China trade

Cramer's game plan: Next week's action hinges on US-China trade

Under Armour: Cramer still preferred competitor Nike’s stock over Under Armour’s ahead of the latter’s Tuesday earnings report.

“It’s Under Armour’s bad luck that they compete against one of the best-run businesses on earth,” he said.

Molson Coors: The “Mad Money” host also didn’t expect much from Molson Coors’ quarterly results, though he did note that the beer brewer’s report could affect pot stocks.

“I think the cannabis stocks could be in play because this company understands it may need to take a bigger plunge into the marijuana market than the tire-kicking it’s done so far,” he argued. “See, the Canadian cannabis stocks started to roll over this week after an incredible run, but the fact is they are really serving as beer replacement[s] in a lot of states.”

Occidental Petroleum: Even though he called Occidental “one of the healthier … oil companies” out there, with “fabulous” properties in Texas’ oil-rich Permian Basin, Cramer preferred a different energy play.

“I like BP more if you want to own an oil because it has a higher, 5.8 percent yield,” he said. “That’s a full percentage point above [Occidental]. Believe me, with oil looking like it is going back to the $40s, you’re going to need some yield protection.”

Twilio: The action in shares of Twilio, a cloud-based communication enabler that works with the likes of Airbnb and Lyft, concerned Cramer ahead of the company’s Tuesday earnings report.

“[Twilio] represents, I think, maybe the best growth stock in tech right now,” he said, adding that he’d like to buy shares for his charitable trust. “But […] the stock is running right up into what we call ‘the print’ — it gained more than 4 [basis] points today alone.”

“I want this stock to be lower to buy, but I bet the quarter’s a legit blowout like the last one,” he added.

Activision Blizzard: Could this video game maker be capitalizing on the battle royale trend set by Fortnite like some of its peers? Cramer’s eager to find out when Activision issues its quarterly results Tuesday evening.

“Activision’s stock has lost nearly half of its value since October, but I think EA put a floor under the group today, which means this one might be worth speculating on,” he said.
