The optimism seen in financial markets during the start of 2023 is fading as retail sales data, CPI numbers and jobs report collectively dashed any hopes that the Federal Reserve might stop increasing interest rates soon. However, downturn in the market creates opportunities for long-term investors. In its 2023 outlook report, JPMorgan said that low valuations today offer the best long-term returns since 2010. While the firm believes a recession or “least several quarters of subtrend growth lie immediately ahead,” its 10- to 15-year investment horizon is unchanged.

The JPMorgan report said that the globalization trend in the world could give rise to interesting dynamics in financial markets. For example, it believes the globalization of services and labor may be a “mitigating disinflationary force.” However, the report said that the world is seeing an increased trend of trade blocs. These trading blocs increase “right-tail risks to inflation – particularly as rival blocs compete for scarce commodities.”

“Certainly, the world today feels a more dangerous place than it has since the end of the Cold War, as geopolitical tension indices such as the Federal Reserve’s (Fed’s) Geopolitical Risk Index (GPR) underscore. While trading blocs may become more regionally focused, we think globalization will evolve but not unravel.”

Carillon Eagle Small Cap Growth Fund made the following comment about Viper Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:VNOM) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:

Viper Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:VNOM) owns and acquires mineral and royalty interests in oil and natural gas properties primarily in the Permian Basin of western Texas and southeastern New Mexico. The company’s stock has been a steady outperformer recently and has substantially outpaced the price of benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude oil. Viper is well-positioned in this market due to the fact that it doesn’t incur the service costs to drill and complete the wells, which likely will increase dramatically and offset a portion of the upside from higher commodity prices for traditional exploration and production companies.”

Here is what L1 Capital Long Short Fund has to say about Cenovus Energy Inc. (NYSE:CVE) in its Q3 2022 investor letter:

Cenovus Energy (Long -13%) shares declined over the quarter due to an ~18% decline in oil prices on increasing fears of a U.S recession and a slowdown in global growth. Given the long-life nature of its oil sand assets and its low cost of production, we estimate Cenovus is free cash flow break-even at an oil price of ~US$40/bbl. Despite the recent fall, oil prices remain more than double this break-even point, implying considerable free cash flow generation potential for the company at current levels, with Cenovus currently trading on a consensus FY22 free cash flow yield of around 20%. There are also additional value realisation catalysts with the company continuing to progress the de-gearing of its balance sheet via organic cash generation and asset sales.”

QuidelOrtho Corporation (NASDAQ:QDEL) is a global leader in the diagnostics industry. The merger of Quidel and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics has resulted in a top 10 player in the in-vitro diagnostics industry, combining Quidel’s strong point of care platform with Ortho’s blood chemistry and transfusion platform. We believe the new company will be much more consistent in its ability to deliver steady top-line growth at attractive margins to fuel free cash flow growth. Further boosting our conviction in QuidelOrtho is its robust product pipeline. Pipeline developments include the company’s Savanna platform, which solves a long-term need for near-patient molecular testing that is accurate, fast, and economical. We believe the stock weakness is due to the anticipated decline in COVID-19 testing. However, we believe the long-term earnings and free cash flow profile are underappreciated, and as a result we increased our position in the stock.”
