S&P 500 hits new highs as tech and jobs overcome hawkish Fed

🏦 Higher for longer. The Fed pushed back against the quick #RateCuts narrative explicitly noting a March cut was unlikely. However, markets largely ignored the hawkish commentary and still pricing in a chance for March cuts and six total this year.

πŸ† Big Tech earnings. While a little mixed to start, #BigTech earnings largely hit a homerun and overshadowed any investor fears of delayed #RateCuts. Meta, in particular, soared on a huge beat and raise, new dividend and big buyback.

πŸ™Œ New highs. Adding in more #Goldilocks labor data, markets rose to new record highs despite a brief pullback after the Fed meeting. The S&P 500 finished the week up 1.4% at a new record all-time high.
