Weekend reads: When tech stocks fade, where do you go?

1:28 pm ET January 8, 2022 (MarketWatch)

By Philip van Doorn

Also, alternatives to ARKK, bitcoin's slide, stocks screens, retirement planning and "the best job in America"

The monthly jobs report for December showed a decline in the U.S. unemployment rate to 3.9%, even though fewer jobs were created than economists had expected.

How does this influence the Federal Reserve's thinking on interest rates only two days after stock-market investors were stunned by Fed meeting minutes that showed some members want to not just raise interest rates but also shrink the central bank's balance sheet?

Gregg Robb wraps up reactions from economists. The low unemployment rate supports expectations that the Fed will start raising interest rates in March, as it has indicated it plans to do.

That can put pressure on the stock market because investors seeking yield will have increasing opportunities in the bond market. Broad pressure on stocks can be especially painful for holders of technology stocks because of their high valuations. Indeed, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite was once again leading major indexes lower.

Is it finally time to switch to value stock?

Value stock indexes have outperformed broad indexes so far in 2022. Mark Hulbert explains why value may be the best approach through this year and shares top picks from several newsletters.

Here's what Wall Street pros have to say.

Finally, Michael Brush makes the case for a good 2022 for the stock market despite all the fear of rising interest rates and shares eight cheap stocks recommended by three investment newsletters.

This S&P tortoise may overtake that hare

During 2020, it seemed the Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK) could do no wrong as it surged 153%, partly on the strength of its largest holding, Tesla Inc. (TSLA) , which skyrocketed 743%. Then in 2021, ARKK skidded 23%, even though Tesla was up another 50%. So far in 2022, ARKK is down another 9.5%. while Tesla has climbed slightly.

Here's a three-year chart showing the movement of ARK and the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY):

Mark DeCambre writes the ETF Wrap column. This week he discusses what is really a "normalizing policy" for the Federal Reserve, its pressure on technology stocks and exchange-traded funds that might be good alternatives to ARKK as interest rates rise.

What's going on with bitcoin?

Bitcoin fell 40% to $41,469.87 early on Jan. 7 from its its high of $69,000 on Nov. 10. It had dropped 10% just from Jan. 4, a day before the release of the Fed minutes.

In this week's Distributed Ledger column, Francis Yue explains why cryptocurrencies have plummeted.
