On Monday, the stock market saw slight losses following a powerful rally the previous week. Energy emerged as the top-performing sector in March, with a rally in oil prices driving the sector’s success. Coterra Energy, a Club holding, announced plans to shift capital investment towards oil production over natural gas due to depressed prices for the latter. Disney was the only stock in the portfolio to reach a new 52-week high on Monday, benefiting from an upgrade by Barclays. Nvidia, another Club holding, saw gains as it continues to receive numerous orders. Ford Motor’s focus on profitable internal combustion engine and hybrid vehicles has helped it outperform electric vehicle pure plays, while Mizuho downgraded ratings on Tesla, Rivian Automotive, and Nio due to concerns about EV demand and liquidity.

The Club increased its price target on Eaton Corp. after reading about the potential impact of AI data centers on power consumption in the Wall Street Journal. As the week progresses, there may be fewer major news events due to the end of the first quarter.
