    [$$] Amazon's No Bargain. Here's Why Investors Keep Buying

    Inc. have surged this year, driving the stock market higher but also pushing valuations to what some investors consider worrisome levels. The valuation of the average stock in the S&P 500 is now in the 97th percentile of historical levels, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which analyzed 40 years of market pricing and valuation data. The valuation level is thanks in large part to the rise of highflying tech stocks.

    Volatile tech may not be best for every retiree. For some retirees though, working around the volatility may prove to be worthwhile. "While it's unlikely that we would recommend anyone, retired or otherwise, to place all their bets on tech or any sector, there are certainly circumstances where technology for a retiree could still make perfect sense, particularly as part of a well-diversified portfolio," said Jane Leung, managing director and CIO of Scenic Advisement.

    Chinese internet stock sell-off may shake faith in FANGs

    A steep downturn in heavyweight Chinese internet stocks and recent weakness in half of the so-called FANG group have some investors worried that a key component of Wall Street's near-decade long rally may be low on fuel.

Too often, bull markets sputter along near all-time highs because of limited buying. However, profit-taking and position-paring is often necessary to bring prices into areas that are attractive to new buyers. It’s this new capital that then drives stocks to new highs.
