As at March 31, 2014
The U.S. economy continued its recovery during the first quarter of 2014, although the abnormally cold winter somewhat retarded growth. Weather-related business interruptions weighed on corporate profits and economic indicators, prompting yields to fall on 10-year bonds in both Canada and the U.S. The Canadian economy, despite positive fundamentals, also was slowed by disappointing employment numbers and weak business spending. The global economy also felt Mother Nature's bite, but challenges in China created a bigger chill due to that country's continued slowing growth as it attempted to transition from a production to consumption economy there. Lingering sovereign debt worries, along with the Russia-Ukraine situation, held back European growth.
The U.S. dollar gained in value against the Canadian dollar and other currencies, driven by the concern about China's economy and fears of an impending debt crisis. The Canadian dollar dipped below 90 cents U.S. late in the period.
Stock markets continued their positive momentum during the quarter, although the driving forces were different from 2013. As the period began, the S&P/TSX Composite Index reversed last year's trend of under-performance against the S&P 500 Index. Both markets endured corrections in January and ended the quarter with nearly identical gains after currency conversion.
As economic conditions improve in the U.S., we should begin to see the resumption of progression toward higher interest rates. If the Chinese situation does not produce a financial shock and the rise in interest rates is gradual, with short-term rates remaining low, corporate earnings and equity values are expected to remain strong. We believe caution is needed, however, until economic data confirms that growth is resuming and China can provide assurances that their debt crisis is manageable.
