    The two main market drivers heading into September

    The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite (^IXIC) logged its worst day this week since 2022 as investors have begun to rotate out of Big Tech stocks. The addition of furthering political uncertainty around the nearing election has many on Wall Street believing an interest cut from the Federal Reserve is likely for September, paving the way for a market shift. Annex Wealth Management chief economist and strategist Brian Jacobsen joins Morning Brief to give insight into market movements across big cap (^DJI, ^IXIC, ^GSPC) and small-cap stocks (^RUT) Jacobsen begins by expressing his near-term views for the market and this earnings season: "We think that, actually, in the near term here, it is mostly about the fundamentals. But then as we get into, say, 2025, it is going to likely be a little bit more about the politics. So it will almost be punctuated by political volatility. The fundamentals we think are okay. But keep in mind it's a matter of how much do you pay for those fundamentals."  Jacobsen anticipates market drivers to be "broken into two different parts" for late 2024: the Fed and the election. "Between now and September, it's likely more focused on the Fed. We will get distracted by politics, but really until we get closer to say end of September, beginning of October, when the polls are going to get a little bit more accurate, we think that those are just going to be like pockets of volatility," Jacobsen explains. "The 'Trump trade' came back in vogue with a vengeance over the last week or so. But that could kind of simmer down a little bit."

    Small-cap is rally just a 'hint' of a broader market trend

    Markets are taking a turn as the Russell 2000 (^RUT) makes gains while the S&P 500 (^GSPC) and Nasdaq Composite (^IXIC) lag from pressure facing the chip sector. Kestra Investment Management CIO Kara Murphy joins Market Domination Overtime to discuss the markets' movement and how investors should navigate the rotation. "We've definitely been having this big shift in leadership in the market. And I think it's one that many of us have been anticipating for a long time. If you look at over the last six months, 80% of the constituents of the S&P 500 have underperformed the index... Now all of a sudden, we get a couple of good inflation prints, a couple good labor prints. Looks like Fed can start to cut interest rates, and all of a sudden, the macro environment starts to change. And I think this is a hint of what is going to turn out to be a broader trend," Murphy explains. While the tech sector has driven most of the S&P 500's gains this year, she notes that its high expectations show "how vulnerable sometimes names can be after they've been in favor for a long time." She encourages investors to start rotating out some mega-cap names for some smaller-cap and mid-cap names, explaining that with mid-caps, "you have companies that are a little bit more established, a little bit more mature, a little bit more diversified, better balance sheets in general, but largely ignored by a lot of the market, right? Everybody's been rushing into the S&P. So if you step down just a little bit in market cap, you get a really rich area for stock picking." She adds that those stocks are best poised to benefit from a low-rate environment. Murphy also points to the infrastructure sector as a potential investment opportunity as it is in need of upgrades that will most likely be on the agenda of whoever takes the White House in 2025.
