    [$$] Bull Market's Latest Hurdle: Slowing Sales Growth

    Revenue growth at U.S. companies is slowing, stirring concern that a corporate-profit boom that has driven the Dow Jones Industrial Average and other major stock indexes to dozens of records in 2018 is in jeopardy. The S&P 500 has shed 4.8% over the past month, driven by concerns about rising interest rates and trade disputes that pushed investors to dump technology stocks and shares of other fast-growing companies. The fundamentals of the U.S. stock market remain mostly strong.

    With crude around $70, it’s time to sell your oil stocks

    The energy sector has been whipsawed by headlines lately, and many investors can’t decide whether to buy or sell oil stocks.

Then as U.S. oil supplies rose and as OPEC production rose, things didn’t look so hot.

    Goldman Says Stocks May Drag on U.S. Growth

    “The stock market is likely to turn from a significant contributor to strong growth at the start of the year into a modest drag next year, barring a further rebound in equity prices,” Goldman Sachs economists including Daan Struyven and Jan Hatzius wrote in a note Friday. The run-up in the equity component of the Goldman Sachs Financial Conditions Index drove most of the 185 basis points of easing from the start of 2017 to late January, the index’s record low, according to the report.

    Goldman Sachs Defends Tech Stocks, Says Many Now Look Cheap 

    Elevated valuations and crowded positioning have been blamed for the waning leadership of the market’s biggest industry, along with everything from rising bond yields to corporate earnings. The truth is, computer and software makers are cheaper than they’ve been historically, and fund managers currently hold fewer tech stocks than their representation in benchmark indexes, according to Goldman strategists led by David Kostin. “Popularity has turned into concerns of overcrowding and outperformance has turned into concerns of overvaluation, ” Kostin wrote in a note earlier this week.

    Why one investor thinks the market need a 15 percent correction as a 'gut check' for the rally

    "I think a good gut check to sentiment, like a 15 percent correction, might be just the ticket to extend this bull market," he added. To get into correction territory, the benchmark index would need to fall to 2,645, a level not seen since May. A 15 percent drop would take it negative for the year. Paulsen told CNBC a correction is necessary to reflect a changing market environment where rates are on the rise, earnings are peaking, and economic growth might slow.

    With market on edge, investors look to tech trio

    The pressure is on for Amazon, Alphabet and Microsoft as they prepare to report quarterly results at a time when confidence in those market leaders looks increasingly fragile and in danger of derailing Wall Street's rally. After worries about higher interest rates sparked a steep sell-off in early October and again on Thursday, the S&P 500 remains down 5 percent from its Sept. 20 record high close, with top-shelf stocks including Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) showing little of their vitality from recent years. A quarterly report from Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) on Wednesday after the bell, followed by Alphabet and Amazon late on Thursday, will influence sentiment across Wall Street.
