Today's Research Reports on Stocks to Watch: Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo & Co.

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 16, 2017 / A poor performance from the Technology Sector dragged U.S. markets lower Thursday. The "FANG" stocks - Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google (now Alphabet, Inc.) – slumped Thursday after Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Graham downgraded Alphabet Inc. to "neutral" from "buy". The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.07 percent to close at 21,359.90, while the S&P 500 Index dipped 0.22 percent to close at 2,432.46. The tech-heavy NASDAQ Composite Index fell 0.47 percent to close at 6,165.50.

"What's happening here is people are equating FANG to tech more broadly, and that's a mistake," said Michael Arone, Chief Investment Strategist at State Street Global Advisors. "About 74 percent of the tech sector are outperforming the market."
