We Are Adapting

Over the last three decades the exponential growth of sophisticated analytic tools, along with significant improvements in the accuracy and size of research databases, has led to tremendous advances in the fields of finance, econometrics, and statistics.  As a result, quantitative portfolio management strategies have become increasingly more effective for all asset classes.  When properly designed and implemented, they can provide more meaningful return, risk, and cost advantages than traditional subjective strategies.  Having gained popularity in recent years, the quantitative trend is expected to continue as investors recognize its disciplined approach can increase the probability of long-term success.  By reducing the investment equation to key time-tested variables, thereby eliminating the subjectivity of human nature, quantitative strategies function in a more optimal manner.

In today’s highly uncertain market environment, no single approach can guarantee future success.  Quantitative strategies help investors more effectively manage their return, risk, and expenses, and can help shift the probability of long-term success more greatly in their favor.

Despite crude oil production cuts, Saudi Arabian crude oil exports to some Asian countries have increased (6/19/2019)

Published on June 19, 2019

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that during May 2019, Saudi Arabia’s crude oil production approached a four-year low, averaging an estimated 9.9 million barrels per day (b/d). Production declined more than 1 million b/d since its estimated all-time high production levels in October and November 2018. Although the country’s total crude oil exports are also lower than recent highs, its crude oil exports to some Asia Pacific countries actually increased during the period of declining production. China in particular has increased its crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia, which is partially a result of new Chinese refining capacity. In contrast, U.S. crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia reached a 31-year low in February, with weekly estimates for April, May, and June suggesting even further declines.. …

More new natural gas combined-cycle power plants are using advanced designs

Published on June 19, 2019

Lower natural gas prices in recent years have spurred the construction of new natural gas-fired power plants in the United States. Of the new U.S. natural gas capacity added since 2016, 31% use advanced natural gas-fired combined-cycle (ANGCC) units. Greater use of the new, larger ANGCC designs has led to efficiency gains and economies of scale, which have resulted in reduced capital construction costs. These lower costs are likely to substantially increase ANGCC’s share of new U.S. natural gas capacity additions in future years.

NERC report highlights potential summer electricity issues for Texas and California

Published on June 18, 2019

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) recent 2019 Summer Reliability Assessment finds that enough resources are available to meet this summer’s projected peak electricity demand in all areas of the country except the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). ERCOT typically has one of the lowest anticipated reserve margins in the country, meaning it may have relatively little unused electric generating capacity during times of peak electric load. NERC’s assessment also highlighted potential ramping issues associated with the growth in solar generation that may affect the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).

Monthly U.S. crude oil imports from OPEC fall to a 30-year low

Published on June 13, 2019

U.S. imports of crude oil from members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in March 2019 totaled 1.5 million barrels per day (b/d), their lowest level since March 1986, based on data in EIA’s Petroleum Supply Monthly. U.S. crude oil imports from OPEC members have generally fallen over the previous decade as domestic crude oil production has increased

EIA forecasts lower crude oil prices, but expected inventory declines present considerable uncertainty (6/12/2019)

Published on June 12, 2019

In the June 2019 Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that Brent crude oil prices will average $67 per barrel (b) in 2019 and in 2020. EIA expects that West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil prices will average $59/b in 2019 and $63/b in 2020. In the June STEO, EIA forecasts Brent and WTI prices in 2019 will be $3/b and $4/b lower, respectively, than forecast in the May 2019 STEO, and the 2020 crude oil price forecasts are unchanged. The lower 2019 price forecasts reflect recent price declines in global crude oil prices, which lowered the starting point for EIA’s forecast. However, the forecast is highly uncertain, however, as reflected in high implied volatility for crude oil options, which EIA uses to inform a market-derived confidence interval of price ranges (Figure 1). Recent data for a variety of oil market indicators—macroeconomic and global oil demand growth, liquid fuels stock levels, refinery runs, production from members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and the effect of tariffs—point to continued price uncertainty. …

Evaluating lower-for-longer policies: Temporary price-level targeting

Published on February 21, 2019

Despite a long and sustained recovery from the Great Recession, a number of factors—including an aging population, slow productivity growth, and subdued inflation—continue to exert downward pressure on U.S. interest rates. It seems likely that even when monetary policy is at a neutral setting, neither restraining nor stimulating the economy, interest rates will remain significantly…

The housing bubble, the credit crunch, and the Great Recession: A reply to Paul Krugman

Published on September 21, 2018

Why was the Great Recession so deep? Certainly, the collapse of the housing bubble was the key precipitating event; falling house prices depressed consumer wealth and spending while leading to sharp reductions in residential construction. However, as I argue in a new paper and blog post, the most damaging aspect of the unwinding bubble was…
