The Dow is crashing Tech by the majority after 1996 in the New Year

The Dow is crashing Tech by the majority after 1996 in the New Year

The backdrop is a Federal Reserve that could commence a series of rate hikes as soon as March, just one of several steps the central bank is set to take in tightening monetary policy to combat inflation. In the stock market, that means tech is out and old-school blue chips like oil producers are in.

The stodgy Dow Jones Industrial Average has demonstrated a position of relative safety for stock investors as U.S. values coincidentally find 2022. The index stuffed with old folks from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to Caterpillar Inc. has fallen 1.6% up until this point this year, including a 1.4% drop during Monday’s market-wide slide. That thinks about to a defeat of 6.4% in the tech-weighty Nasdaq 100 since the beginning of the year, giving the blue-chip index its greatest outperformance since the first week of 1996.

“As we see expectations for rate hikes ramp up, we can expect value stocks looking more attractive, while the high-growth area of the market — such as the tech stocks, the Nasdaq — are going to be losing their shine,” Fiona Cincotta, senior financial markets analyst at City Index, said by phone.

Rising rates — an upshot of strong economic growth — drive investors toward value stocks, which tend to be more cyclical and offer near-term cash flows. Growth shares, on the other hand, lose their luster in this environment.

The Nasdaq 100 was down for a fifth straight day on Monday, underperforming the broader market again.

“We would suggest that investors consider being proactive and aggressive with inflation and not fear it, and to reposition portfolios into more cyclical stocks that tend to do well in inflationary environments,” said Greg Bassuk, chief executive of AXS Investments, by phone.
