Stock Opinions by Kim Bolton

COMMENT
Year of the chip. Yes, and the other side of the coin saw SaaS really getting hurt. Quite the roller coaster. SaaS includes TWLO or MNDY, "smaller" cap, but their valuations got very stretched at the beginning of the year, and then pulled back as interest rates started to go up. Rising interest rates will contract the valuations for the smaller- to mid-cap companies. On the growth side, they're extremely strong. There's just a rationalization in the market, and it's not letting up.

COMMENT
Global payments sector. Global payments segment got caught up in supply chain issues as government fiscal stimulus started to roll off. PYPL is a gem, as is SQ, that has come off but is very profitable.

COMMENT
Outlook for 2022. There are some opportunities going into 2022. S&P is up 26-27% on the year. Epitome of growth, ARKK Innovation, is down 22%. Going into 2022, market volatility won't let up. 5-week streak of +/- 2% moves. That's amazing. The last time this happened was October 2011 and March 2009. It's nothing like those times, or even the dot.com bubble. But it's certainly volatile, and we're bound to have more going into 2022.

CTS vs. ASAN Go with ASAN, it's the cutting edge company out there for collaboration and work management. These days, go with the larger companies. ASAN's market cap is only 13B, but it has heavy hitters at the top. His 12-month price target is $103.40.

PARTIAL SELL
Great company. Not in his fund, but clients have it in separately managed accounts. Take a bit of profit, but maintain a core holding. 12-month price target of $183. Virtual reality headsets will be what it's all about, and the software that feeds into them.

Sort of Star Trek, beaming images. Perfected the technology. He follows it. It comes in fits and starts. Potential acquisition. Stock price is stuck. Still loves the company. Was invested, but not now.

Follows it, but it's a bit small for his concentrated portfolio.

Really interesting company. Follows it. Pure play in the metaverse. Lets developers come in and build virtual reality platforms. Also helps monetize apps. Monetization will happen sooner elsewhere. His choice in the metaverse space is MSFT.

BUY on WEAKNESS
12-month price target of $4250. Treading water. Has been in his top 5 holdings for a while. Especially with the volatility, investors gravitate toward the large caps. Sometime in 2022, it should get down to $3200-3250. It should not go below $3042, which is a big support level.
