7 Tech Funds to Play the Most Powerful Trends of 2018

2017-10-18 investorplace
Technology stocks have been on a tear in 2017. And in 2018, the tech sector is sure to keep soaring. The “FAANG” stocks — that is, Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Google-parent Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) — have surged in the past 10 months. The weakest performer is up 28% to more than double the S&P 500’s return in the same period, and the top performer is up over 60%. (451-0)

ETF Watchlist: Week Of October 2, 2017

2017-10-03 seekingalpha
September has been a traditionally weak month for the stock market. Not this year. Both the Dow and the S&P 500 posted 2% gains during the month, while the Nasdaq tacked on another 1%. Through the first three quarters of 2017, that puts the Dow up by 13.4%, the S&P 500 up by 12.5% and the Nasdaq up by 20.7%. Small-caps and mid-caps have trailed their larger brethren this year, but virtually every asset class and region of the world is up this year. (327-0)

2017-09-19 zacks
Dodging all the ills of economy and politics, the S&P 500 index is enjoying the second-largest bull run and added almost $20 trillion to the value of American equities. The index topped the milestone of 2,500 for the first time, surpassing the 266% rise during the 1949-56 run, per Bloomberg (read: S&P 500 Hits 2,500 Mark: How to Trade With ETFs). The journey of 100 points for the index came in less than four months amid concerns over elevated valuations, geopolitical tension and Washington turmoil.

ETF Watchlist: Week Of September 11, 2017

2017-09-13 seekingalpha
In doing some research this past week, I came upon a thread encouraging readers to talk about the worst investment or stock trade they've ever been a part of. It was a fascinating read that reminded me of the one thing that most people don't feel like talking about. And that is that everybody has losing investments. Everybody. Even the pros. I shared my worst trade on that thread and, in the spirit of having a little fun, I figure I'd share the story here as well! (2-0)
