La lección atemporal que nos enseña el reciente declive de las tecnológicas

By Ken Fisher, elEconomista, Monday, June 7, 2021

La mayoría de los analistas afirma que el liderazgo de las acciones tecnológicas ha terminado, alegando que las campañas de vacunación, la reactivación de la actividad económica, el alza de los tipos de interés y la amenaza de la inflación remacharán los clavos de su ataúd. Se argumenta que su declive observado hasta la fecha en todo el mundo frente a otros sectores, como el energético y el financiero, revela qué les depara el futuro.

They point to Tech’s year-to-date lag globally versus areas like Energy and Financials—arguing that trend will last. Maybe!

Two ‘Maybe Nots’ Those Fearing Hot Inflation Should Consider

By Ken Fisher, LinkedIn, Wednesday, May 26, 2021

Uncle Sam deployed nearly $3 trillion in COVID relief last year, another $1.9 trillion this year—and $4 trillion more in spending is under discussion.

The Hidden Bullish Reality Behind China Default Fears

By Ken Fisher, Real Clear Markets, Monday, May 3, 2021

Many pundits warn China’s debt woes doom it’s post-COVID recovery-- and that of the world. They point to high-profile corporate defaults and downgrades cascading into a debt tsunami destined to reverberate globally—especially with China reducing stimulus. But that isn’t just wrong, it’s backwards.
