How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

Apple and Microsoft Nuts Are About to CRACK and Send Stock Market Sharply Lower

Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022 May 12, 2022 - 03:03 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

The earnings bloodbath materialised, that started on Tuesday with Google trading down to $2265, and ended on Friday with Amazon plunging down to a new low of $2425. With the two 'cheap' stocks Qualcom and Facebook rallying strongly post earnings. Virtually everything went according to the script of my last article i.e. "we could see Amazon trade to well under $2500, probably into the $2450 to $2300 support zone". The only odd one out was Apple that refused to budge much from $160, where my expectations remain is headed to below $142.


Stocks Bear Market Current State

My big picture remains as I have been iterating for the past 3 months in that I expect the Dow to target a volatile trend to below 31k.

5th Feb 2022 - We are in for a volatile trend with a downwards bias for much of 2022, as I wrote to expect on the 5th of Dec 2021 accompanied by revised trend forecast graph.

Following which my expectations were for the Dow to target a trend to $31k as illustrated below -

The Dow closed at 32977, the bull market peak was 37k, which currently puts the Dow at -10.8%. The target for the low is 31,000 to 29,000 for a 16.2% to 21.6% peak to trough bear market. So the Dow currently stands at 6% to 14% above it's final low where my expectations are for the final low to be nearer to 29k than 31k and that is the INDEX risk of accumulating stocks at a Dow deviation of 10.8% from it's high i.e. for an index draw down of 6% to 14% from it's current price. The only thing that is not clear is WHEN the Dow will bottom.

In terms of immediate price action then the Dow has done nothing to suggest that the trend I forecast last last week to Dow 32k is not going to soon become manifest i.e. that the Dow is targeting a trend to 32k. for a new bear market low.

In the meantime I am obviously seeking far greater deviations than that for the Dow to accumulate select AI tech stocks at as and when opportunities arise as the stealth bear market cycles through individual stocks just as we witnessed last week.

AI stocks Portfolio

I continue to get the buying job done by catching the falling knifes through a string of small buys. Breakdown of my exposure stands at AI stocks 39% (36.7%), High risk 26.1% (25.1%), with portfolio cash falling to 35% (38.2%). The largest increase in exposure during the week was in Amazon from 28% to 39% and Google up from 42% to 47%. Remember folks all this is being done without the benefit of hindsight. Whilst the EGF indicator has started to FLASH a RECESSION WARNING as it turns negative on virtually every reporting stock except Qualcom, thus proving a useful indicator, especially take note of Amazons -68% reading which instantly warns the stock the price is nowhere a bottom even after last weeks drop to $2485.

In terms of my long standing buying levels then Amazon finally fulfilled it's level of $2600 which has been in force since November 2021 when the stock price was trading at $3600. I am sure at the time $2600 seemed like an impossible pipe dream but here we are 6 months later job done! And to think there were many fools at the time promoting Amazon as a buy at $3700, so it's no wonder most who remained invested in Amazon on the basis of poop analysis where on Friday were probably weeping at $2485 closing price.

I may be wrong but it appears to me that ALL stocks are ALWAYS a BUY with Motley Fool! A case of the always blue sky's ahead to maximise sales and marketing of services and so as to get the investing lemmings onboard.

Now only long standing buying levels for Apple, Broadcom and IBM remain pending, hence why I have no new exposure to any of these stocks whilst IBM exposure dates back several years.
