WEEKLY IPOX® PERFORMANCE REVIEW: The IPOX® Indexes traded mixed in the shortened U.S. trading week. Ahead of the upcoming July 12 CPI numbers, the U.S. market reacted strongly to Thursday’s hotter-than-expected ADP National Employment Report. Equities fell after the new job numbers showed that hiring increased, leading traders to expect that the Fed will lift rates at its meeting later this month. This led long term U.S. treasury bond yields higher, above the key 4% level. In the U.S., the IPOX® 100 U.S. (-1.34%, ETF: FPX) fell alongside the broader market to +10.63% YTD. In Europe, the IPOX® Europe (ETF: FPXE) slid -1.52% to +6.40% YTD, taking +184 bps. from the STOXX Europe 50 (SX5L: -3.35%). Outside the U.S., the IPOX® International (ETF: FPXI) gained slightly to +0.98% YTD, supported by the outperformance in select large-cap holdings (e.g. Alibaba, Ecopro BM) as well as the continued stellar showing of our Middle East exposure. Here, the IPOX® MENA rose +2.35% to +17.01% YTD, a new all-time high after exchanges in the region returned from the week-long Eid Al-Adha holiday.





IPOX® PORTFOLIO STOCKS IN FOCUS: The IPOX® 100 U.S. (ETF: FPX) was led by EV maker Rivian (RIVN US: +48.26%), which rallied to its highest price in 2023 after posting strong deliveries and an analyst upgrade. Business software maker C3.ai (AI US: +7.74%) climbed amid continued momentum in AI firms. Swedish web browser firm Opera (OPRA US: +23.30%) led the IPOX® Europe (ETF: FPXE) after making headlines that it could bypass Twitter’s new controversial view limit. Compatriot air conditioning firm Munsters Group (MTRS SS: +11.04%) surged on receiving a $88m order from a US data center company. Renewables firm Siemens Energy (ENR GR: -7.85%) fell on news about wind turbine defects.

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA US: +8.64%) rose on news that former IPO candidate Ant Group is to pay a hefty fine, sparking hopes that the probe into the firm’s fintech affiliate may be over. In Japan, record-breaking chipmaker Socionext (6526 JP: -16.24%) plunged as Fujitsu & Panasonic announced their exit from the former JV.
