    Should Retirees Invest in the Tech Sector?

    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. Outstanding gains in Facebook (FB.O), Amazon (AMZN.O), Netflix (NFLX.O) and Alphabet (GOOGL.O) have underpinned much of the U.S. stock market's rally in recent years, along with the broader tech sector, but the group is widely viewed as overbought and valuations remain expensive.

    With Earnings Season Ending, Focus Will Shift to Geopolitical Events, Policy Changes

    One positive that can be taken from last week’s events is that sometimes it is necessary for an event to come along and drive stocks back into value areas. 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.

    US stock markets have been an absolute mess over the last several sessions but look as if they are going to finish the week showing signs of strength again. The previous week was a shooting star, and this week looks to be a hammer. What does this mean?

    Trade talks and Fed Jackson Hole meeting could create more than the usual late August volatility

    Trade developments could overshadow most everything else in the week ahead, except for the Fed, which releases the minutes of its last meeting Wednesday and meets in Jackson Hole at the end of the week. Talks restart with China Wednesday and Thursday, the day a new set of tariffs on Chinese goods are due to take affect. The bull market, in the view of some market pros, could become the longest in modern history on Wednesday, when it will be a day older than the tech bubble bull that ran from 1990 to 2000.
