Tech -- As in Wreck Real Money Pro($)

"I try not to kid myself. You know, I don't mind romancing someone else, but to fool yourself is pretty devastating and dangerous."
The market may be rising, but so-so economic data and earnings reports point to a growing divergence between value and price.

Observation of the Week Real Money Pro($)

This is my most important take of the week: "Growth isn't growing"-- at least relative to expectations.
Falling crude prices are helping send markets lower. 
Qualcomm and American Express have served as the poster children for bearish earnings reactions.

QCOM was downgraded to Equal-weight, Barclays said. $50 price target. Company is facing increased competition from Intel. 
The recent rally has taken it to its upper limit. But its fundamentals look good.
With ample free cash flow to cover its 10% dividend rise, QCOM is good a long-term value play.
