Netflix is a company that made history in part because of the role it played in making traditional video rentals a thing of the past, but no tech company can coast on its past successes forever. Any company that doesn’t keep innovating will fall behind. In the case of Netflix, their growth is being hampered by an influx of new competitors who are all looking to take a bite out of their market share. It’s not as hard to start a streaming service as it used to be, and new players in the sector are all looking to make gains at the expense of Netflix, the company that is synonymous with video streaming. I’m not counting Netflix out yet, but they will need a strategy to stay competitive. That’s why I’m talking about just what moves could save Netflix’s spot in digital content streaming.

After several losing sessions, we have seen signs of life in the market. Small caps have suffered extreme difficulties previously, but now they are outperforming the greater market on average. While it’s too soon to say what will happen next, and what this means for the big picture, it’s good to see after mand of the most successful tech stocks of the pandemic, as well as cryptocurrencies, have faced such serious pressure. Between historic GDP growth, inflation, upcoming earnings, and the Fed could all push things in different directions. I wouldn’t stay out of the market and risk missing a good rebound, but this is a time to plan ahead, consider the long haul, make smaller trades, and avoid chasing the market.
People looking to the classic FAANG companies to lead the tech sector might be disappointed, but I want to make it clear that tech is still the place to be when looking for opportunities in the market. The tech-centric Nasdaq is leaving the broader S&P 500 in the dust in terms of gains. Now, things for small-cap companies can be a bit uncertain in light of concerns about inflation. They don’t have the market power that larger companies do, and so they can’t pass costs on to customers as easily. That being said, some of them have still won big. In addition, there are a few more companies with strong prospects that I have my eye on.
In March 2020, the market took a hit, but anyone who thought that was a good reason to sit on the sidelines ended up missing one of the biggest comebacks in history. But, when the market looks choppy, it can be hard to find a really impressive chart.
The verdict is in; Apple’s app store doesn’t constitute an illegal monopoly, but they can’t stop developers like Epic Games from directing their users to make purchases outside of the official app store.
I think that anybody who treats this like a loss for Apple is overreacting. It’s a mixed outcome, but I’d call it a win for Apple overall since they avoided being named as an illegal monopoly. Exactly how big a deal it is, though, will be determined by how many developers actually follow through and send consumers elsewhere for payments.
This year so far, $736 billion has flowed into ETFs in the market, as much as the entire year of 2020 with several months left to go. That doesn’t mean it’s already too late to buy into my favorite collection of market-crushing ETFs.
It’s the “Summer of Big Tech”, and that’s because plenty of new investors are flooding into the market. $20 billion dollars came pouring in during June alone, and those new investors have been looking for familiar names.
At this point, we’re seeing clearly that fears of tech growth being stopped by inflation were seriously exaggerated. By now, those concerns are already priced into the market. In fact, the way I see it, tech companies are even better prepared to handle pressure in the market than other consumer goods companies. And not only that, over the last 30 years, tech growth has proven that it can turn much bigger profits than value investing. A few tech companies in particular that I’m keeping an eye on are especially great prospects when it comes to the amazing growth that tech can offer.
In 2020, the FAANG companies stood out as major leaders in the economy, crushing the broader market, but they aren’t the only places to look for moneymaking opportunities in 2021. Zoom Video Communications Inc. (ZM) did well this year, but right now it seems more like a wait-and-see. I’m also interested in Twilio Inc. (TWLO) and The Trade Desk Inc. (TTD). Not only that, but I predict that, as we move into the second half of 2021, we’ll be seeing even more strength from the economy. In particular, I’m expecting e-Commerce, fintech, and the cloud to be critical sectors for investment.
Between outstanding vaccine announcements, the possibility of new lockdowns looming, Biden elected, and stimulus and the senate uncertain, the media doesn’t know where the market is going, I’m not worried at all.
In my recent interview with the online news provider Cheddar, I break down all my best tips and forecasts for the biggest upcoming events in the news that could push the market, and how best to invest to ride the next big market wave instead of getting soaked by it.
