The Winners & Losers From A Consumer Slowdown

  • Some commodity material markets are better positioned than others to withstand a consumer spending slowdown amid rampant cost inflation.  
  • Winning commodities will likely be levered more to energy security/transition, re-shoring, and infrastructure, than those more levered to discretionary spending.
  • Stock markets may react to a consumer-driven slowdown by cutting commodity exposure, despite favorable long-term fundamental trends for many commodities.
  • One sector relatively immune is agriculture; crop shortages remain significant – all in the chain should benefit from higher prices at the expense of food inflation.
  • Otherwise, we discuss the recent squeeze in US olefins margins, more on the desire for LNG and its challenges, and several notable ESG corporate claims.

Last week we discussed 28 Chemicals and related products and 171 Companies.
