Gianluca's Investor Update
A glimpse into a letter from your Manulife Securities Financial Advisor Gianluca Folino. Keeping you updated on all things finance, markets, and economics.
Highlights from the Q1 2023 Quarterly Review
The Canadian economy is experiencing a slowdown, with bank stock prices falling and an inverting yield curve. Banks, including CIBC and TD, are extending loan durations to accommodate borrowers struggling to make full monthly mortgage payments. The Bank of Canada is trying to boost the Canadian Dollar by selling assets, but this is unsustainable. Despite a significant influx of new residents, Canada has not kept up with housing demand. In the US, the Silicon Valley Bank Crisis is likely to increase regulations for small banks, leading to higher fees and more competition for deposits. The S&P500 market shows a skewed distribution, with Microsoft and Apple accounting for a significant portion of its returns. Commercial real estate debt is a potential point of weakness, with small/mid US banks having the largest exposure. Long-term patience is key to navigating market uncertainties and fluctuations.
