    Apple Stock Could Enter Multi-Month Correction

    Relative strength indicators have lifted to extremely overbought weekly and monthly technical readings that have triggered past corrections, and it's unlikely to be different this time around. The stock has attracted an enormous supply of complacent shareholders since the summer of 2019, blinded to the reality that markets move in both directions. This amnesia could end with a shock event, like the current coronavirus outbreak, or more slowly through a pullback that gathers momentum over a few weeks.

    According to Dow Jones Market Data, the S&P 500 posted a gain of 14.59% after the first occurrence of SARS back in 2002-03, based on the end of month performance for the index in April, 2003.

    Stanley Druckenmiller, one of Wall Street's most successful investors, acknowledges that the markets are riding high and that investors may be able to finally breathe freely in the short term after a number of shocks, but says investors should be wary of three events that could knock assets into a bear market. One of the reasons I'm pretty sanguine right now is I think we're close enough to the election, at least we can breathe for a few months,” he told Bloomberg Television during a recent interview. But there are a trio of situations that could upend that optimism — and perhaps permanently.

    This basket of dividend growth stocks can help your portfolio stand out in 2020

    Analysts at Goldman Sachs are highlighting a “dividend growth basket” of stocks at a time when valuations for the U.S. stock market have shot up to their second-highest level since June 2002. In the firm's recent “U.S. Weekly Kickstart” report Jan. 3, the analysts, led by David Kostin, recommended investors be cautious and look for “growth at a reasonable price,” but also included a group of dividend stocks with low price-to-earnings valuations relative to the S&P 500 (SPX) that also appear likely to continue raising their dividend payouts more quickly than the broader market.

    Roth IRA Contributions with No Job?

    The internal Revenue Service (IRS) gets a little grumpy if you contribute to a Roth individual retirement account (IRA) without what it calls earned income. You don't necessarily need a formal job to contribute to a Roth IRA. Although it's not true in all cases, if you're paying taxes on any type of income from working, there's a good chance that you can make Roth IRA contributions.

    Jeff Bezos Friended the Wrong Foreign Leaders

    Then last week, Bezos's yearlong tangle with Saudi Arabia burst into the headlines, with cybersecurity investigators concluding with “medium to high confidence” that Bezos's iPhone was hacked via a WhatsApp message sent directly from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's account. Those are two very different situations in two separate parts of the world. But they had something in common—an overly optimistic bet (that Amazon placed, along with its Big Tech brethren) on global leaders whose dispositions turned out to be less open and, to varying degrees, more autocratic than Silicon Valley originally thought.
