Is It Time to Fade Tech and Consumer Stocks?

by | Aug 1, 2022 | Market Updates

The market is down to start August following its best month since 2020 — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.

We had everything under the kitchen sink thrown at us last week — earnings from some of the biggest companies like Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), the latest gross domestic product data, the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate hike…

Wall Street gave us a lot to digest, but since this week will be more subdued in terms of data, the market will have a chance to stand on its own.

The biggest catalysts this week will be earnings reports, with names like Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD) reporting on Tuesday, Fortinet Inc. (Nasdaq: FTNT) and Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA) on Wednesday, and ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) and Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) on Thursday, among others.

P.S. This New Indicator Is Causing a Big Stir 

What Lance Ippolito and his New Money Crew team have been working on is nothing short of incredible… It’s something totally different from anything he’s EVER done before.

It has nothing to do with option flow or insider buying, and it’s not a new trade alert service… Instead, it’s a brand-new indicator he’s been working on for years that he’s never shared before.

He thinks it could be a major asset for folks looking to survive — and even thrive — in 2022 and beyond.

And Lance just went LIVE to reveal all the details behind this incredible indicator…

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
