  8. Nasdaq 100, S&P 500, Dow Jones Forecast: Growth, Tech Stocks Falling Out of Favor? (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    STOCKS FUNDAMENTAL FORECAST: SLIGHTLY BEARISH * Growth stocks, the Nasdaq 100 and Taiwan’s index sank last week * Rising longer-term Treasury yields driving portfolio reallocations * Value stocks may hold as Fed seemed sanguine about bond market VALUE EQUITIES GAINING A VOICE AS GROWTH ONES FALTER At first glance, this past week was quite dismal for global stock markets. But, a closer look revealed that it seemed more akin to the forces driving shifting portfolio allocations and a rotation out of growth and into value stocks. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Averaged climbed about 1.75 percent over the past 5 trading days. The S&P 500 was up roughly 0.75. But, the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 slumped over 2%. To further illustrate this, let us take a look at Taiwanese stocks. Taiwan’s index has been a strong-performer within the Asia-Pacific region since last year’s Covid low, rising about 90% to last month’s high. Roughly 62% of the index’s weight is concentrated in tech. The nation chiefly exports integrated circuits. Taiwan’s index was also one of the worst-performing one’s within the APAC region last week, slumping 3.63% Rising Treasury yields in the world’s largest economy have likely been driving this dynamic. The 10-year rate is now up over 200% from last year’s low, at one point touching 1.62% last week. This has also meant that the government bond surpassed the annual dividend yield from the S&P 500 – see chart below. This is slowly making it more costly to forgo bonds for equities, resulting in shifting portfolio allocations. Commentary from central bank officials last week seemed to hint that higher longer-term rates are not quite yet of a concern. Treasury yields extended gains after Fed Chair Jerome Powell spoke this past week. ECB’s Vice President Luis de Guindos said that the central bank is not in the game of yield curve control. Although, Bank of Japan’s Governor Haruhiko Kuroda expressed the importance to keep long-term rates stably low.   submitted by   /u/Jackmor4 [link]   [comments]

So, i don't understand why tourism stocks are bought more when Covid-19 has twice more infected people than it was in February? Rising in Japan, South Korea, France, Germany... lockdown... Italy still high... Just because Biden gave informatsion about infrastructure plan and fast vaccination and low unemployment does not mean that everything is now good. Summer is coming, people don't wanna wear mask, they wanna go to beach, hang out, more workers will work and easier to spread virus... This all will increase Covid-19 spread.
