The No. 1 Sector Set to Weaken as Earnings Season Continues

by | Aug 9, 2022 | Market Updates

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq slipped Tuesday morning as chip manufacturers lower future guidance — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

NVIDIA Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA) kicked off the week by releasing preliminary earnings that revealed second-quarter revenue of $6.7 billion versus its initial outlook of $8.1 billion, citing weaker-than-expected gaming revenue.

The news was followed by an announcement from Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) on Tuesday warning that revenue for the current quarter may fall near the low end of its forecast, or even lower.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq slid 0.3% and 0.7%, respectively, while the iShares Semiconductor ETF (Nasdaq: SOXX) fell 1.5% in premarket trading Tuesday, following its 1.5% fall on Monday.

I’m traveling this morning, so instead of your usual stock market recap, I’m bringing you an update on how earnings season is affecting the 11 major sectors, plus my top sector and top stock as usual.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll reveal whether bonds will fall or rise… which sectors are most vulnerable… why I believe the Tech sector will weaken… plus which stocks to stay away from right now.
