FAANG: In the government's crosshairs

The big four tech giants – Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google – are facing antitrust investigations and scrutiny over data privacy. And surprisingly, the push is gaining bipartisan support. Is it just noise for the tech sector or a larger threat to investors?

Market Perspectives

Beyond the volatility: is a near-term recession likely?

August has been a highly volatile period for the financial markets. Reignited trade tensions and recent yield-curve inversions have spooked investors, culminating in a 3% drop in the S&P 500 Index on Aug. 14, its worst day of the year.

Market Perspectives

Fed cuts rates; where do we go from here?

The Fed announced a much-anticipated one-quarter-percentage-point cut to the federal funds rate. Following the decision, Fed Chairman Powell's press conference commentary was perceived as unexpectedly hawkish. While the market had a 'buy the rumor, sell the news’ reaction, but we believe underlying fundamentals should support continued growth during the rest of 2019.

Portfolio Perspectives

Amid the noise, will tech's run continue?

Ivy Science and Technology Fund

While trade tension and government investigations may create unknowns, the secular drivers of technology and health care are diverse and growing. We believe we are at a unique crossroads as innovation in science and technology converge at an unprecedented pace, which is creating new investable opportunities.
