Wearables, the iPhone 7, virtual reality, cybersecurity spending and Twitter each confounded expert predictions this year. What should investors take away from all this?
Six reasons why the Nasdaq 100 ETF seems ready to pull back.
This value-oriented, closed-end fund is trading at a steep discount.
Microsoft (MSFT) , which makes up about 8.6% of the index. Amazon (AMZN) , which has about a 6.4% weighting. Cisco (CSCO) , which accounts for about 2.7% on QQQ. I've previously written that I'm bearish on Cisco on an intermediate-term basis. Non-Tech QQQ Stocks Look Iffy, Too Some non-tech QQQ components could weigh down the ETF in 2017 as well. These include biotech and health care companies such as Amgen (AMGN) , Biogen (BIIB) , Celgene (CELG) , Express Scripts (ESRX) and others, which all could suffer if Trump tries to limit drug-price increases. Comcast (CMCSA) also represents a relatively large QQQ weighting (about 3%), but the cable giant could suffer from continued "cord cutting" by consumers. Tax Cuts Won't Help QQQ Stocks Trump's plan to lower the effective U.S. corporate tax rate won't materially benefit QQQ components. After all, large tech and health care firms in the Nasdaq 100 already g
There are abundant reasons to question whether the assumptions that have led to the surprising market advance are based in reality.
An Untested President Trump. Regardless of one's political affiliation, it can be argued that, as a leader, Donald Trump is untested. His ability to understand, study and execute/implement far-reaching, complex and cohesive policy remains in question, particularly against a backdrop of deep-rooted animus between the Republican and Democratic parties.  Will the President-Elect Really Come to the Rescue of the Middle Class and Fulfill His Campaign Promises? Donald Trump ran on the notion that he will represent the Average Joe. After years of "Screwflation of the Middle Class," in which most Americans' disposable incomes had flat-lined with salaries unchanged while the costs of the necessities of life increased, the Republican candidate promised that he would represent them over the next four years. As noted below, in several bullet points, I remain a skeptic.  Will Donald Trump Be More Elitist Than Hillary Clinton? Donald Trump's cabinet appointees are comprised principally of wealthy individuals who are not representative of our broader society. The president-elect has argued that these appointees have been successful in private life and are good representatives to affect the change he has espoused. We shall see whether they feather the beds of their contemporaries or whether their policies "trickle down" to their constituents.  Campaign Promises Recanted? The president-elect has made numerous extreme campaign promises to his supporters that he already has recanted in areas of immigration ("the wall"), a possible legal response to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton's emails, tariffs and trade and other core campaign principles.  Pay For Play -- Selling Access? Donald Trump's two sons already have gotten into "pay for play" problems, something that the president-elect and the Republican opposition was critical of regarding the Clintons. Trump should be avoiding these conflicts at all costs, but he is not. Thus far there have been other examples of selling access; the president-elect doesn't yet seem to understand the degree of scrutiny a person in his position is in. He needs an army of lawyers around him building a Chinese wall between his business and the presidency. Will this be fact and can he separate himself from his business empire in order to do good and follow the will of the people without conflict?  Fiscal Policy Limitations. The Fed's monetary largesse is no longer a factor or effective in catalyzing domestic economic growth. The baton pass from monetary stimulation to fiscal expansion is likely to be less smooth and probably will be implemented much later than the consensus expects. This applies to both the U.S. and Europe, as it is all now about politics and the ability to coordinate fiscal policy successfully. Will the president-elect get cooperation of a Republican-controlled Congress to embark upon aggressive fiscal stimulation while taking the budget deficit sky high? Is this a reasonable leap of faith by investors? There are also real issues as to timing and whether fiscal stimulation will be effective in a new administration. Fiscal policy efforts, such as the monetary expansion since 2009, may fail to trickle down to where they are needed most -- the middle class. In other words, fiscal policy may not be as effective in catalyzing growth as anticipated. As an example, the CEO of Cisco (CSCO) , which possesses a large overseas cash hoard, recently was asked what the company would do wit

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar's relentless climb continued -- now at $1.038 against the euro. This will cripple multi-nationals. For now, ignored. But we will begin to hear of corporate warnings (45% of S&P 500 earnings per share are non-U.S-based) shortly from this variable. There are several trillion dollars worth of U.S. dollar-based debt issued by non-U.S. entities. Another concern. The price of crude oil was relatively flat at $52.20, a gain of a dime. Gold down $10 to new lows at $1,132. Ag commodities generally weaker: wheat down $0.02, corn down $0.03, soybeans down $0.16 and oats down $0.02. Lumber up $4.50. Bonds wilted. The 10-year note yield rose 3 basis points and the long bond by a like amount. The 2s/10s spread expanded by another 3 basis points to 136 basis points. Munis were weaker but closed-end muni-bond funds were mixed. Junk bonds were unchanged, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fun (BGB) rose by two pennies. Banks continued their monster mash. So did brokerages (led again by Goldman Sachs (GS) ) and insurance. Auto stocks were higher, but modestly so. Energy stocks were flat. Retail stocks rallied, on cue! Biotech up 1%, led by Celgene (CELG) and spec Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) (on good FDA news). Big pharma continues to stink up the joint. Broadly lower. Old tech was mixed. Good cover on trading short of Cisco Systems (CSCO) last week. Fertilizers mixed with Monsanto (MON) and Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT) exchanging price performance from yesterday. Consumer staples succumbed to the stronger currency, but long Campbell Soup (CPB) made a new high on the move. Ag equipment was strong despite weak dealer data from Caterpillar (CAT) . (T)FANG was mixed and under-performed with Facebook (FB) and Netflix (NFLX) lower and Tesla (TSLA) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) higher. In individual names,
