    The S&P 500 had a very strong week, wiping out almost all the losses that happened last week. At this point, it looks as if the S&P 500 is ready to go much higher, perhaps reaching towards the 2900 level, possibly even higher than that.

    [$$] Awash in Cash, Tech Giants Reward Shareholders

    With the recent passage of the tax bill, stock buybacks and dividends are flowing like never before, and they make tech stocks more and more competitive with other sectors for income investors. The latest announcements of buybacks and dividends by networking giant Cisco Systems (CSCO), chip-equipment stalwart Applied Materials (AMAT) and its competitor, KLA-Tencor (KLAC), helped to power the Nasdaq Composite up 5.3% for the week, topping the roughly 4% return of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. There’s some debate over whether the Nasdaq is as “tech-heavy” as classically described, but it’s where Apple (AAPL) is listed, which is enough to call it the tech index.

    [$$] Stock-Picking, Machine Learning, and the Markets

    For 44 years, the Atlanta–based firm of Bowen Hanes has overseen the Tampa Fire and Police Pension fund, first under Harold J. Bowen Jr. (who died earlier this year at age 87), and then, after 2000, under Harold J. Bowen III, who goes by “Jay.” Typically, the manager of a $2 billion local Florida pension fund wouldn’t catch our eye, but its performance is extraordinary—so much so that it has prompted some healthy skepticism. Under Bowen, the Tampa pension has consistently performed in the top quartile of its peers, returning 21% in 2017, 8.6% for the three years ending in 2017, 10.8% for five years, 6.9% for 10, and 11.5% for 35 years, according to Wilshire Trust. True, that lags behind the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, but the pension fund’s returns include a 25% stake in cash and bonds.

    [$$] REITs Are Sending a Powerful Buy Signal

    Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, are best viewed as stock/bond hybrids, since their valuations are sensitive to both interest rates and the economy. REIT shares badly trailed the Standard & Poor’s 500 index in the past year as the bond market fell, lifting the yield on the 10-year Treasury to 2.9% from 2.5%. As a result, REITs now could be flashing one of their strongest buy signals in years.

    Stock volatility: back with a bang and here to stay

    U.S. stock markets are unlikely to return to the unusually calm conditions seen last year, even though equities have already recovered more than half the ground lost in the recent selloff and traders have rapidly dialed down fear. Stock market volatility spiked to a multi-year high in the selloff and some products that flourished in low volatility collapsed. A higher-volatility environment means the 1 percent stock market swings of the past two weeks will become commonplace, strategists said.
