    The Worst is Yet to Come for Stocks: Morgan Stanley

    Investors looking for solace amid the wave of market sell-offs may argue that the S&P 500 has fallen only 9% from its all-time highs in September, hardly a devastating decline. “Not only does the price action this year suggest we are in the midst of a bear market—more than 40 percent of the stocks in the S&P 500 are down at least 20 percent—but it also trades like a bear market,” wrote the bank’s analysts.

    Trump just sent the wrong message on a brutal day in the stock markets

    On a brutal day in the stock markets the last thing investors want to see is another attack on the Federal Reserve by President Donald Trump. Trump reportedly told a group of reporters on Tuesday that he would like to see lower interest rates from the Federal Reserve. The president added that the biggest problem right now isn’t the trade war with China (among other geopolitical issues), but rather the Jerome Powell led Federal Reserve.

Three Motley Fool contributors selected AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), 3M (NYSE: MMM), and Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) as large-cap stocks to buy in November.

    A key Fed official stays the course on U.S. rate hikes amid growing doubts

    The Federal Reserve is pushing ahead with gradual rate-hike plans next month as it marches toward a more normal policy stance that would keep the economy expanding, one of its most influential members said on Monday in the face of growing doubts in financial markets. New York Fed President John Williams, a close ally of Fed Chair Jerome Powell and a permanent voter on monetary policy, said repeatedly the U.S. economy and job market is "strong," prompting employers to hire workers they otherwise would not. "What we're going to do over the next FOMC monetary policy meeting, we're going to do what we've been doing as best we can - we're going to find a ... gradual path of the monetary policy back to a more normal level of interest rates," said Williams of the Federal Open Market Committee meeting.

    NVIDIA’s Moving Average Shows Further Downside Ahead

    NVIDIA (NVDA) stock has been in a downtrend since October. To understand whether NVIDIA stock has bottomed out or if there’s the potential for a further decline, let’s look at its technical indicators. NVIDIA’s current trading price is lower than its 50-day moving average, which is lower than it 200-day moving average, indicating technical weakness. Rival Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock reported technical weakness on October 25, a day after its weak fourth-quarter earnings guidance—but its price didn’t breach its 200-day moving average resistance, which helped it recover partially after a week.

    What's Driving Shares of Sonos 12% Lower Today?

    Shares of Sonos (NASDAQ: SONO), a provider of home sound systems -- with products that include speaker sets, mounts, stands, and cables -- were down 12% as of 2:41 p.m. EST following broader market declines and a tech sell-off. Thanks to a solid launch of its Beam smart soundbar, fourth-quarter revenue jumped 27.5% versus the prior year, and Sonos sold 1.12 million products, which was a 47% jump. Going forward, and ignoring day-to-day swings such as today's 12% decline, the company appears positioned to provide investors with sustainable growth in a strong economy.
