As the rally continues, it's wise to avoid overcrowded trades among hedge funds as herd mentality often leads to trouble in the stock market, according to Morgan Stanley. Investors in overcrowded trades could run the risk of getting caught in a losing bet when hedge funds, especially systematic traders, form a herd-like stampede to exit the same trades. Morgan Stanley found that hedge funds were most overweight in the consumer discretionary, industrials, and health-care sectors last quarter. Even though they have been extremely popular, these stocks tend to have outsized share counts that make hedge funds' ownership less significant. Avis Budget Group was the most over-owned stock by hedge funds at the end of 2023 with half of its outstanding float shares owned by the cohort, according to Morgan Stanley.

Treasury yields shot up last year, and investors flocked to allocating to cash which have yielded around 5% or even more. Morgan Stanley Investment Management's Jim Caron believes the 10-year Treasury yield is very likely to hover between 5% and 5.5%. Caron, who is chief investment officer at its Portfolio Solutions Group, explained that historically, 10-year Treasury yields are "usually a good match" for nominal gross domestic product. How rising yields affect stocks But are rising yields bad for stocks, as commonly thought? "If yields are rising because the economy is running hot, and data and labor markets are stronger, the rising yields need not negatively affect stocks."

Why rich companies also keep getting richerThere's another major disconnect that the broader market's impressive performance is masking, strategists at Morgan Stanley remarked in a recent note. Since then, the return gap has gotten even worse in a historically narrow market, Wilson wrote. Morgan Stanley"The equity market understands this economy is not that great for the average company or consumer," Wilson wrote. This rare combination of expansionary fiscal policy and restrictive monetary policy has had the unintended consequence of "crowding out the private economy," Wilson wrote. Companies that can grow without borrowing money at unattractive rates are at a huge advantage, which Morgan Stanley believes has fueled their immense success lately.

If that return isn't there, will they keep ordering the latest and greatest Nvidia chips? Despite the overall improvements in availability, Nvidia on Wednesday indicated it will face supply-and-demand imbalances with its upcoming AI chips. The U.S. government has said its export controls are designed to keep high-powered AI chips out of the hands of the Chinese military. In the November-through-January quarter, China accounted for a mid-single-digit percentage of Nvidia's $18.4 billion in data center revenue, according to the company. The fact Nvidia still booked China revenue in the hundreds of millions of dollars means it could take a further hit in the region.

Some Wall Street analysts are bracing for a pullback in Nvidia shares after the chipmaker reports fiscal fourth quarter results after the bell Wednesday. "We reiterate Buy/top pick ahead of NVDA Feb-21 earnings but won't be surprised to see a notable but brief pullback after the recent parabolic run-up in the stock," wrote Bank of America analyst Vivek Arya in a recent note. Nvidia shares slid more than 4% during Tuesday's session, but they have surged 40% in 2024. "Hence, we see limited room for further earnings upside in 2024 relative to the sales and earnings surprise that we saw in 2023."
