NASDAQ falls into correction territory on #RisingYields concerns and disappointing #BigTech earnings

😞 Disappointing earnings. It was a very volatile week with almost half of our companies reporting earnings. Overall, earnings have skewed to disappointment leading the S&P 500 down -2.5% this week.

📉 NASDAQ correction. The typical #BigTech beat and raises weren’t enough this time for investors. The tech-heavy NASDAQ dropped -3% this week into correction territory down -12% from its mid July high.

🏛️ Shutdown odds rising. Representative Mike Johnson is the next US House Speaker. Given Johnson’s hard right track record, odds for a government shutdown in mid-November are increasing. With only a few more weeks remaining, we expect investors to start paying more attention to it.
