    US home sales dip, Secret Service director resigns: Catalysts

    On today's episode of Catalysts, hosts Seana Smith and Madison Mills break down the trading day's biggest stories from the latest data on existing home sales to the resignation of US Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle. June's existing home sales data revealed a sharper decline than economists had anticipated. According to a report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), sales dropped 5.4% month-over-month to 3.89 million units, falling short of the 3.2% decrease to 3.98 million units initially predicted. The current sales level represents the lowest point since December 2023. Kristina Hooper, Invesco's chief global market strategist, attributes the housing market's challenges to the Fed's tightening cycle, which she says created "golden handcuffs" and forced affordability issues. However, she believes the Fed recognizes these housing market concerns, and she is optimistic about the possibility of two rate cuts in 2024, even suggesting "there is a potential for three." The Russell 2000 (^RUT) index is under pressure after seeing a five-day winning streak last week. F.L. Putnam Investment Management Co. chief market strategist and portfolio manager Ellen Hazen argues that the small-cap rally was "premature," and notes that small-cap earnings revisions for the next year keep decreasing while S&P 500 (^GSPC) earnings revisions keep increasing, saying, "So what looks like a cheap valuation is not as cheap as it looks." Yahoo Finance reporters Dan Howley and Pras Subramanian break down the top areas investors should focus on from Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) and Tesla's (TSLA) latest earnings. Meanwhile, pharmacy benefits manager (PMB) executives are testifying before Congress about the price of prescription drugs and how they can be lowered. Some of the questions being asked are in regards to pricing, rebates, and the role of the middle man between pharmacies and drug makers. Yahoo Finance senior health reporter Anjalee Khemlani breaks down the testimonies before Congress from leading PMB executives and what it means for their operations moving forward. US Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle resigned from her post on Tuesday, according to several reports, after testifying before House lawmakers on the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump's life last week at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania.

    10 to 15% of portfolio should be in SMID caps: BMO's Belski

    US equities (^GSPC, ^DJI, ^IXIC) waver in pre-market hours as the market patiently awaits Big Tech earnings reports out from Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) and Tesla (TSLA) later today. A significant growth driver in the first half of 2024, tech results may signal to investors how the tech trade may play out in the latter half of the year. BMO Capital Market chief investment strategist Brian Belski joins Morning Brief to give insight into the tech sector and what investors need to keep in mind for their portfolios. In terms of the broadening out tech trade, Belski states: "I think people are overplaying that a little bit. I know obviously we had very strong concentration in the month of June and then July. We've seen the semblance of what we've been calling for now for several months in terms of the broadening out effect... I talked about the theme of 'everybody love everybody,' meaning own a little bit of everything. And it's starting to really work in terms of investment strategy and portfolio construction." Belski explains "there's still a lot of clients that are sitting in cash" when addressing whether investors should play in both big (^DJI, ^IXIC, ^GSPC) and small-cap stock names (^RUT): "If you look at the small mid-cap universe, quite frankly, in the publicly traded marketplace in the United States, it apprises 7%, and so we're saying like 10 to 15% of your portfolio should be in small mid-cap." He underlines that small and mid-cap universe "has been largely abandoned" and can be beneficial for investors "massively overweight" in mega-cap names.
