Glimmers of hope over next 6 months? Historically since WW2, every time the stock market ran up 20% or more as in 2021, it fell double digits in the first half of the following year. In the second half of that year, markets had at least returned to break even. The second thing is that inflation and interest rate hikes have already been significantly priced in. So by spring of 2023, developed world economies could experience a relief rally, if investors convince themselves that the Fed will dial back aggressiveness to prevent a deep recession. Remember, stock markets tend to look 6-12 months ahead. So spring 2023 should look more optimistic than today. Lastly, technology sector needs to lead the charge, as it's the biggest sector. Look for tech to be more robust as we enter the second half of this year.

Which area of tech to watch? Every 10 years, the pendulum swings between hardware and software. From 2011-2021, the horses that led the way were software. Before that, it was hardware. Now, the ones that seem to have the stabilizing factor, like META, are starting to move towards hardware. The trend is just starting to swing away from software and over to hardware.

SaaS that's taken it on the chin. Digital twins to increase efficiencies for machines and environments. Hardware and software. Unprofitable. No debt. Cash on the balance sheets. He follows it. (Analysts’ price target is $5.82)

SaaS really got punished with rate hikes, inflation, and supply chain issues. Operating system for the digital world. Story is great, but underlying metrics and free cashflow are of real concern. Loves the company, but it's unprofitable.

Whole payment side has struggled, very competitive. Innovation in the space, especially in Europe. If you don't want to sell, write some calls to make some money. Ability to innovate, but they'll need to look to the future. Look at ADYEN, it's on the cutting edge of "real-time rails".
