Is CTB priced right for value?

Trade tensions, which have persisted for well over a year, have worked to amp up market tension at different periods throughout the year.

Looking for a bullish semiconductor bet? MCHP isn’t it

As trade tensions have restored volatility to the market, sectors like Industrials and Technology appear to be on the bleeding edge of risk exposure.

Are tech stocks like LRCX a bad bet as trade worsens?

I don’t think it should be all that surprising, given the way that trade and tariffs have dominated market commentary for most of the last year and a half.

2019 has been an interesting year for investors so far; we’ve watched the market raD to a new all-time high after testing near-bear market levels into Christmas 2018.
