The first quarter will mark a high for the stock, said JPMorgan

Stocks have been rolling since October, with the S&P 500 up 14.4% after hitting a closing low of 3,577 on Oct. 12. However, JPMorgan doesn’t think the good times will last.

“Big picture, we believe that the equity rally that started last October, and which we expect to be driven by peak bond yields/CPI, China’s reopening, and falling European gas prices, is unlikely to have fundamental confirmation for the next period. Going any further higher as the year goes on,” equity strategist Mislav Matejka wrote in a note Monday. “Q1 in our view is likely to mark the high point of the market.”

Matejka also noted he prefers international stocks to US stocks, especially since technology is likely to continue to struggle in the future.

Stock since October

“We don’t believe the US will be a good place to hide this time, as Technology moves from secular to cyclical,” he said. “Despite our view of peak bond yields from October, when we suggested closing shorts in Tech, the sector is unlikely to be a sustainable leader; prices are still not far from all-time highs.”

“This is not a great starting point. Going forward, we do not believe that Tech will be immune to potential revenue disappointment in a downturn, unlike the past decade.”
