Domestic epidemic, Russian-Ukrainian conflict causes plummet
The Russian-Ukrainian conflict is regarded by many institutions as the biggest “black swan” event this year, which has triggered turmoil in the global financial market, and the A-share market has also been affected. Coupled with the recent outbreak of the epidemic in many places in China, investors’ risk aversion has heated up again. In the final analysis, the continuous adjustment of the market is caused by the resonance of internal and external uncertain factors, especially the emotional shock caused by external factors is still difficult to say.
In terms of internal factors, the financial data in February was lower than expected, reflecting that the “triple pressure” faced by the real economy is still relatively large in the short term, and the epidemic has spread in many places, causing concerns about the recovery of consumption and the sustainability of export growth. Investors expect There is an expected deviation from the policy orientation of stabilizing growth. As analyzed by Chongyang Investment, the deep-seated reason for market adjustment is that market players lack confidence in the economic outlook.
In terms of external factors, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is undoubtedly the most uncertain event that makes the market nervous. At present, its impact on the A-share market is mainly reflected in two aspects: one is the emotional impact. On March 9, the Shanghai Composite Index fell to a minimum of 3147.68 points, which was regarded as a concentrated release of panic. Many institutional sources believe that the short-term impact of the current Russian-Ukrainian conflict on A shares has basically ended. The second is the fundamental impact. Due to the nature of Russia and Ukraine as resource countries, the conflict has intensified the rise in the prices of crude oil and other commodities, resulting in a surge in commodity prices and a drop in stock asset prices, and pushes up global inflation expectations, bringing a certain degree of import to my country. type of inflationary pressures.

The bottom grinding time of this wheel may be further extended
Under the main influence of geopolitical “black swan” events, the “sentiment market” characteristics of the stock market are more obvious. When prudence and short-term risk aversion dominate, investors pay more attention to and magnify negative factors, which can easily lead to unilateral fluctuations. For example, focusing on the deviation of domestic and foreign policies, but ignoring the difference between internal and external cycles, and focusing on the advantages of self-control; worrying about the prospects of economic growth, but ignoring the clear orientation of stable growth, and the policy is exerting force; focusing on the risk of stagflation, but looking at commodities The emphasis is on “inflation”, while the emphasis on resource stocks is “stagnation”.
Founder Securities believes that the market’s expectations for fundamentals need to be adjusted urgently, and the time for this round of bottom grinding may be affected and further extended. In the medium term, the repeated domestic epidemics, shrinking real estate demand, and unstable overseas situation will further impact domestic fundamental expectations and capital risk appetite. Affected by this, the bottom period of the A-share market may be further extended, and more stability needs to be observed. The effect of growth policies. Considering that the market has retraced by an average of about 20%-30% since the high point in 2021, the current valuation level is generally in a relatively reasonable range, and the possibility of an upward rebound in the short term cannot be ruled out. However, the medium- and long-term effects of the above factors are more worthy of vigilance. Overall, the macro economy and capital market will face a difficult environment in 2022. It is necessary to reduce the investment return expectation in 2022 to a certain extent, and choose industries and industries with relatively high prosperity. companies, while guarding against industries and companies whose fundamentals have clearly deteriorated.

On the whole, the industry configuration continues three main lines and two major themes. Main line 1: The stable growth sector with strong policy certainty is the least constrained by external risks and can be used as a ballast for short-term balanced response. Pay attention to new and old infrastructure fields such as building materials, building decoration, urban pipe network transformation, and new power grid construction, as well as real estate and banks where the recent economic reversal has begun. Main line 2: Do a good job in the layout of opportunities for the third stage of medium-term growth to extract the valuation market. First, the growth structure will continue to be strong, and focus on dual carbon, new energy (vehicles), wind and solar storage, and electronic semiconductors. The second is the defense industry and computers that have the potential to benefit from valuation diffusion. Main line 3: In terms of consumption, continue to be optimistic about the overall opportunities in the pharmaceutical sector catalyzed by multiple positives, and focus on opportunities related to dairy products, planting industries and fertilizers with smoother price increases in the medium and long term; in terms of themes, continue to focus on investment opportunities related to the digital economy and the reform of state-owned enterprises.
Guosheng Securities said that as the domestic “steady growth” policy end is appropriately advanced and inflation pressures are under control, the Shanghai Index, which is at a relatively low valuation in history, is expected to be desensitized to external disturbances and usher in a turnaround. It is recommended to maintain a high value in investment. Allocation ratio for growth. In terms of operation, it is still necessary to control the overall position before the market can effectively break through. It is suitable for low absorption. “Stable growth” and “recovery in the middle and lower reaches of the manufacturing industry” will become the main logic driving the operation of the market, focusing on traditional infrastructure such as building materials, as well as bancassurance For low-valued sectors such as these, it is recommended to appropriately deploy themed sectors such as the digital economy, the reform of central enterprises, and fully adjusted new energy guidance based on performance and cost-effectiveness.

Who can play the savior of the global stock market?
JPMorgan: Pension Funds and Sovereign Wealth Funds
From Asian stocks to U.S. stocks, since March, the global stock index has almost snowballed all the way down. Geopolitical conflicts, the threat of inflation, the resurgence of the epidemic, and a series of news “storms” almost made the world‘s major stock indexes unable to escape the “claw” of bad events. And when the major central banks are stepping into the interest rate hike cycle, who can play the savior of the global stock market?
JPMorgan’s recent research appears to have found a “savior”. Institutional funds could give global stocks a much-needed technical rebound as the first quarter draws to a close, according to the bank’s forecast.
Large institutional investors such as global pension funds and sovereign wealth funds are a stalwart of the global investment community, often adjusting market exposure at the end of each quarter to comply with strict allocation constraints between stocks and bonds.
Although their holding portfolios are generally held in the medium and long term, if the market value of stocks in a certain region or the market value of all market stocks in the portfolio is lower than or higher than the allocation requirements due to market fluctuations, a rebalancing action is required. It is adjusted on a quarterly basis. Of course, bonds operate on the same principle.
“In terms of buying equities, the biggest rebalancing of 2020 is likely right now,” said JPMorgan strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou.
He predicts that the global stock market is expected to usher in at least $100 billion and as much as $230 billion in capital inflows, which will push the market up 5%-10%.
This is not without precedent. Global stock markets took a hit in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic, with portfolio equity write-downs as high as $850 billion, which then sparked a buying frenzy that helped the S&P 500 rise in the month since up 13%.Newspaper comprehensive Return to Sohu, see more
