    Why it's time to broaden into small and mid caps: Strategist

    The tech sector (XLK) has begun to see a sell-off after reaching record heights and, more recently, seeing disappointing quarterly results from tech giant Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL). Should investors stay locked in or start to broaden out to other opportunities? Verdence Capital Advisors CIO Megan Horneman joins Morning Brief to give insight into the recent sell-off of AI stocks and what investors need to keep in mind for their portfolios moving forward. Horenman affirms: "I think right now the best thing to do is take a look at your portfolios. We think volatility is going to accelerate through the rest of this year. It's going to present some opportunities for investors to get back into areas of the market that have been unloved. You know, small caps. We could talk about that. Small and mid-caps have had a little bit of a rebound here lately. But from a relative attractiveness, they're very cheap compared to large cap."

    US housing and PMI data, AMC Q2 forecast: Catalysts

    Today's episode of Catalysts, co-hosts by Seana Smith and Madison Mills, focuses on economic data, earnings reports, and the political landscape. The show kicks off with a look at fresh economic data, including US new home sales and the S&P Global Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI). Mills and Smith discuss these reports and their implications for the broader state of the economy. Earnings are in the spotlight as Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) and Tesla (TSLA) reported second-quarter results, the latter of which disappointed investors. AMC (AMC) released preliminary second-quarter forecasts anticipating approximately $32.8 million in losses during the quarter. In political news, Vice President Kamala Harris held a campaign rally in Wisconsin on Tuesday, following President Biden's decision to step down from his reelection bid. Harris saw significant support, raising approximately $126 in funding since. This post was written by Angel Smith

    2 reasons why small caps are outperforming Big Tech

    Small caps outperformed Big Tech in the last month as the Russell 2000 (^RUT) rose over 10%. Portfolio Wealth Advisors president & CIO Lee Munson joins Wealth! to break down the movement and the disappointment in Big Tech earnings. Munson points to two reasons behind the recent growth of small caps. First, he explains that small caps generally perform well at the beginning of an expansionary cycle as opposed to a late cycle. "I think what people have to remember is that we have this presumption that we're going to start slowing down. We have this presumption that the Fed is going to have to cut rates. Why are they going to have to cut rates? Because we don't want to cause a recession. So the market's looking 6 to 12 months out from today... And so people are starting to load up on what they think is going to be this huge expansion going into next year, and the election and the presidential candidates have a lot to do with that," he says. The second reason boils down to the short-term prospects of AI: "People are starting to get the message that while I love ChatGPT, I'm on every single moment of my life, but it's going to take time to really make the killer app. The thing that's going to cause Apple (AAPL) to have to sell a whole new line of stuff that's going to cause Microsoft (MSFT) to have this whole new software to sell people, and that it's not going to happen in the next six months. And so people are starting looking at profitability, they're starting to question it." As second quarter Big Tech earnings roll in, investors have been largely disappointed. Munson explains that investors want to see immediate returns on these companies' capital investments, which poses an issue as the AI trade takes longer to materialize. He believes there isn't a sell-off of Big Tech, but rather, there is more of a "buyer strike." With the Federal Reserve eyeing a September interest rate cut, he believes that small-cap stocks and "all the other stocks that are not Mag Seven" are poised to benefit as their debt loads will decrease.
