    US home sales dip, Secret Service director resigns: Catalysts

    On today's episode of Catalysts, hosts Seana Smith and Madison Mills break down the trading day's biggest stories from the latest data on existing home sales to the resignation of US Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle. June's existing home sales data revealed a sharper decline than economists had anticipated. According to a report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), sales dropped 5.4% month-over-month to 3.89 million units, falling short of the 3.2% decrease to 3.98 million units initially predicted. The current sales level represents the lowest point since December 2023. Kristina Hooper, Invesco's chief global market strategist, attributes the housing market's challenges to the Fed's tightening cycle, which she says created "golden handcuffs" and forced affordability issues. However, she believes the Fed recognizes these housing market concerns, and she is optimistic about the possibility of two rate cuts in 2024, even suggesting "there is a potential for three." The Russell 2000 (^RUT) index is under pressure after seeing a five-day winning streak last week. F.L. Putnam Investment Management Co. chief market strategist and portfolio manager Ellen Hazen argues that the small-cap rally was "premature," and notes that small-cap earnings revisions for the next year keep decreasing while S&P 500 (^GSPC) earnings revisions keep increasing, saying, "So what looks like a cheap valuation is not as cheap as it looks." Yahoo Finance reporters Dan Howley and Pras Subramanian break down the top areas investors should focus on from Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) and Tesla's (TSLA) latest earnings. Meanwhile, pharmacy benefits manager (PMB) executives are testifying before Congress about the price of prescription drugs and how they can be lowered. Some of the questions being asked are in regards to pricing, rebates, and the role of the middle man between pharmacies and drug makers. Yahoo Finance senior health reporter Anjalee Khemlani breaks down the testimonies before Congress from leading PMB executives and what it means for their operations moving forward. US Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle resigned from her post on Tuesday, according to several reports, after testifying before House lawmakers on the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump's life last week at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania.

    How to invest in Big Tech ahead of earnings

    Big Tech earnings are on the horizon, with Tesla (TSLA) and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) kicking things off on July 23.So how should investors prepare? Matt Stucky, Chief Portfolio Manager at Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management, advises keeping track of the trends that have been driving Big Tech stocks. Stucky mentions the ongoing health of advertising, noting that Alphabet and Meta (META) have the opportunity to take advantage of the improving ad environment. Stucky continues by discussing how strong fundamentals are more relevant than valuations in the short run, considering the upcoming earnings and their influence over the market. He concedes, "It's not until you start to see revision trends rollover that’s where the valuation concerns really come into the investor mindset." When asked about where investors should look to invest their money within tech, Stucky notes that he is not advising clients to blindly dump money into mega-cap tech. Instead, he suggests keeping a long-term investment horizon while continuing to diversify their portfolio, using small-cap stocks as an example. Switching gears to CrowdStrike (CRWD) and cybersecurity as a whole, Stucky explains the prominence of security as a cemented trend year after year. He uses the recent crash as an example of the necessity of IT resilience and the potential for further spending in the IT sector.
