Trump’s Attack on NY Sexual Assault Law Called ‘Absurd’ By Judge Inc. and Nvidia Corp. are among the biggest contributors to the Nasdaq 100 Index’s 4.5% gain this week. Amazon, which tumbled 50% last year amid soaring interest rates and slowing revenue growth, rose 14% for its best week since April 2020, while graphics chipmaker Nvidia also gained 14% over the last five sessions.
Investors are becoming more optimistic that inflation will continue to cool, which would allow the Federal Reserve to soon pause interest rate hikes that triggered a valuation reckoning last year for growth stocks. The December consumer price index released Thursday was the lowest in a year, adding to growing evidence that the Fed is starting to tame inflation even as central bankers insist there’s more work to be done.
“This is the market saying that it is more optimistic that things are better off than periods of last year, when recession narratives were dominating,” said Nick Getaz, portfolio manager for the Franklin Rising Dividends Fund. “We’re not out of the woods, but maybe we can see the clearing of the trees.”
Evidence of rising optimism wasn’t limited to the biggest US tech companies. A basket of unprofitable technology stocks tracked by Goldman Sachs jumped 15% this week. Software maker Atlassian Corp. surged more than 20%, electric-vehicle maker Lucid Group rose 28% and Carvana Co., the beaten-down auto retailer, soared 59%.
Of course, not all tech stocks outperformed. Zoom Video Communications Inc., Cisco Systems Inc. and Texas Instruments Inc. have all lagged behind the S&P 500 Index this week.
Franklin’s Getaz is skeptical that the rally can be sustained considering lingering threats to economic growth and the likelihood that interest rates remain elevated. He’s looking forward to the fourth quarter earnings season that commenced this week to see if corporate profit estimates can hold up.
“It’s fair to say it is too early for the level of uplift we’ve seen,” he said. “There’s more evidence for why you should be optimistic, but I’m not sure there’s enough evidence to warrant this level of strength.”

Earlier this year, in May, claims were made that Microsoft Corp co-founder Bill Gates owned the majority of America’s farmland. While that is false, with the billionaire amassing nearly 270,000 acres of farmland across the country, compared to 900 million total farm acres, a different billionaire privately owns 2.2 million acres, making him the largest landowner in the U.S. John Malone, the former CEO of Tele-Communications Inc., which AT&T Inc. purchased for more than $50 billion in 1999, has a

The following real estate investment trusts (REITs) all trade below their book value, and each one pays a dividend. If the Federal Reserve ever makes the pivot back to lowering interest rates, REITs such as these may be of interest to patient investors. While the wait continues for a change in the rate environment, an investor continues to receive a dividend. That’s the idea, anyway. It may or may not work out that way, but for those interested, here are the REITs: Medical Properties Trust Inc.
If you own a home or have been interested in buying one, you are aware of the sizeable U.S. residential real estate downturn.

The latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures showed that inflation is still easing, having dropped for the 6th consecutive month. The CPI for December rose by 6.5% from the same period a year ago and fell by 0.1% compared to November, thereby meeting Street expectations. There are still areas of concern, though, such as services inflation, which might put a spanner in the works for investors hoping the latest readout will cause the Fed to put the brakes on its rate-hiking endeavors.
