Deutsche Bank's Binky Chadha Goes Permafull Retard, Sees S&P At 1,550 By End Of 2011

Tyler Durden's picture


It was less than 24 hours ago that we presented the latest 2011 outlook from Deutsche Bank's highly credible Fixed Income group, which had one of the bleakest economic outlooks for 2011, and we quote: "there are so many headwinds to work through, that recovery
is not consistent with premature monetary tightening by either the Fed
or the markets. Fiscal stimulus buys time in 2011 but little else.
Ironically the stronger growth looks, the more likely fiscal tightening
will come into play sooner keeping the recovery on a backfoot. However, in our view, at best this buys some time for recovery. The deficit is huge and meaningful fiscal tightening is not far behind
. Even if we dodge the Ricardian bullet of equivalence in 2011, there is at least 1 if not 2 percent of fiscal tightening slated for 2012. If underlying economic  growth remains in the 2-3 percent range, there is a sharp slowing implied for 2012." Yet this very rational view does not prevent that other DBer, Binky Chadha, who completely refuses to even cross check memos from other groups in the firm, and who in making even Joe LaVorgna sound credible, comes out with a report which can only be classified as going uberfull retard: "The strategic and tactical cases for US equities should come together to generate strong market returns in 2011 The S&P 500 YE 2011 target remains unchanged at 1550.We estimate $96 in EPS and a fair value multiple of 16.4x. These may look ambitious, but viewed against a Q4 2010 annualized $91.5 our estimate looks modest; a 16.5 multiple was the average in the 1930s. 25% price appreciation would not be atypical for a post-midterm election year, historically the strongest in the election cycle." All we can say is that when clowns take over the insane asylum, the end result is so much better than a hostile take over by lunatics: at least the consequences are so infinitely funnier. To all who believe that EPS can remain at projected levels once margins collapse across the board courtesy of an explosion in input costs should this prediction be even partially correct, all we can suggest is to buy every Cramer stock recommendation without question.

Binky's (not to be confused with Dinky from The Littles) optimism is based on the following 7 "catalysts":

The tactical case rests on 7 catalysts: A strengthening recovery, with jobs growth to pick up and credit growth to resume; positive data surprises; a low earnings bar; cheap multiples; a move toward the center in policy making; asset re-allocation back to equities; and a favorable demand-supply balance.

For everyone who wishes to feel their brain turn to mush, below is the full report.

Margins? well downsizing employee staff, and downsizing the debt loads with NEW low interest dbond issues, especially 2011, and downsized competition, bankrupcies etc  A&P, but also Lehman, same thing...less competition enables suppliers to POST prices, to a certain extent not yet appreciated....AND then goldman, and JPMorgan doing THEIR PART in keeping supplier wholesale metals prices higher, thereby encouraging a larger permanent supply of metals...the mines remain open..the wholesale can be passed on...just as PROVEN back in early Summer 2008, gasoline retailing at $5/gallon....couldn't be done THEY SAID...oh YAH? 

It WAS DONE, and gasoline turned-out to be virtually INELASTIC...$5 made no difference, indeed the HIGHEST demand WAS that very summer of 2008...

Margins? yes, some companies A&P deserve to die, and for them, 'the war is over' end game...other razor-margin companies are learning to apply computerization, decision-support software, and all that...THEY will thrive and survive,  in a less competitive enviroment, soon THEY will almost in collusion will SET MARKET PRICES at the retail level...

same computations, same results...THAT IS NOT COLLUSION, no legal action possible...

Data points from the semiconductor supply chain suggest strong 2011, up >15% in revenue and more than that in volume/units shipped.

This is after concerns there would be a soft December quarter this year. 

The supply chain had been holding its breath. After the biggest ever re-stocking of inventory from 3Q09 to 2Q10, there were fears that returns to organic demand growth would be underwhelming. So far demand growth has exceeded expectations.

I would like to understand if the Best Buy miss is a data point that suggests a rethink of 2011 demand, or if it is a loss in market share.  If it is a change in the macro demand picture, the semi supply chain will know by the first week of January as Q1 orders get rescheduled.

A couple of points:

1. All of my construction friends (a fair number) have NO work except for a few government jobs. My house building/remodeling friend has never seen it so bad and his family have been in the business for 40 years. 

2. Even if BBY is simply a market share thing, then the winners will be AMZN and other online retailers. This will result in a further decline in employment, CRE values, etc. as the big box concept dies a slow death. Higher package shipping represents, IMHO, this online push and not necessarily net growth in economic activity. All of those local retail, especially mom-and-pop, stores will get further and further behind. 

3. Semi's might sell well, but they represent in part a push for productivity, i.e. computers replacing labor. 

Many of these macro trends will take years to play out, but we have no solution for long-term jobs. The S&P 500 companies will eventually no longer need US employment. We are hollowing out our economy.

YES, that is ALL correct sociologically...

business is not about 'welfare on the job'...if you are an equity market (not bond market) trader, NOW is the best of times to get in....DOW 36000 actually is more than possible but more than likely....Oh, did you ALL, forget JAPAN 1988-1989 ?? Nikki 39,000 which eventually douched a low of what? 8000?  

In the USA, yes, from 8000 to 39000 is quite within the possible range, with the help of Gods Workers Goldman/Jpm the Federal Reserve, the European Central bank...and a DESPERATE China, needing MIDDLE CLASS buyers (which no such thing, in quantity exists in China mainland)....

all this will require PERMANENT, secular unemployement and permanent reductions in force in government and residential construction...self evident...we, the World this time is going thru a once in 70 year Creative Destruction, no cyclical recession here, not at all....start RETRAINING, ASAP...

Yup. With the market being a pure Funny Money gauge and not about anticipated earnings, this can go on toward a few end points: 

-Nasdaq cracks 2000 highs (good news) but inflation runs 18% (bad news)

-S&P cracks 2,500 (good news) but high input costs force de-listings of big companies every month to be replaced by speculative companies (bad news)

-Stocks get used as scrip for groceries and gasoline (very bad news)

-Social Security savings get invested in stocks as GW Bush suggested, pushing NASDAQ to 10,000 only to crash back to 500 (worse news)

The very survival, not even the growth, of the modern financial system is based on credit expansion and M expansion.

So if they are permabullish, it's not just because they'd like more growth in the future: it's because they cannot do anything else than predicting higher levels of assets, for they own sake.

If Bank of America predicted DOW 4,000 in 2014, they would just be actively digging their own grave.

Likes US equities because expects European flight?  Riots in Rome, Paloma and Milan today, UK and Ireland last week, ongoing dust ups in Greece, Spain, Portugal, and warnings in Belgium?  Terrorist bombs in Sweden.  

But where to go when the riots start in the US?  Or will reality shows continue to dull the Americans?  Local bank robberies, pepper-sprayed clerks at retail shops while someone steals, and residential break-ins are up up up in the US.  Some from desperate need, but most because jails are full, DAs don't have staff to prosecute, and there are more important violent cases taking police and prosecutorial resources.

Very doable IMO. The bears who have been consistently wrong for the last 2 years will be wrong again. Like I've said for months .... DO NOT FIGHT THE FED...period. There are vested interests in blowing every last short out of this market. Until then, UP UP UP we go. The fact that the SPY is now the most shorted security only means the upside has WAY more to go. Until the bears understand that, they have no chance.

so-  I guess when the Fed was saying that subprime was contained and that there was no housing bubble-


folks should have taken that "as gold"  that nothing tragic would happen and stayed fully vested in stocks?


yeah . . .the Fed- they have it all figured out- always reacting after the market says what's up


no doubt in my mind that the Fed will be wondering what the fuck happened when all their little genius policy moves don't end up having the desired effect-  higher rates and high employment- what will be their excuse then?


That they're clueless?

My advice, just stay away from the equity bashing and if you have to invest in them--do so only as a hedge against the small probablity of being wrong about hyperinflation.

Their level of competence is mediocre to say the least, but that must be in line with the Frankfurt's executive board goal to expand in Asia. So, a once solid German Bank, has now traded cost savings of a few thousand dollars in salaries to losses of hundreds of millions due to sheer incompetence of its browned work force. Good bye white employees. They don't need them anymore. Too bad as it was on of the more reliable financial institutions, that is no longer.

I actually went to school with "Binky" ... and let me tell you it is very strange seeing him all famous.  He was (haven't talked to him in many years) a very cool guy, and amazingly smart.  One of the sharpest people I've ever met, regardless of what we may think of his market calls.

actually we should really hope the keynesians pull it off and flood with enough liquidity to kick start a recovery and perfectly time the withdrawal of that liquidity and everything else happens as expected and is in perfect sequential order.  To wish otherwise is to be naive as to what will happen in this  country if we go into a serious depression or crack up boom.  Being 100 percent long precious metals will not save you from the catastrophe if Bernanke fails.

Binky Chaddha has not only lost his marbles ; he will soon loose his Chaddis (underwear). But of course Chaddha may have been paid to loose it.

The only way the market can go up is because of the devaluation of the US $. If i recall the Zimbabwe stock market went up over 3000% in 1 year!
