- For about a week, value was the new growth. Tech, boo! Dividends, yay!
- Fortunately sense has returned to the market. In our 20+ years as pro investors, betting against tech has never been a good long term strategy.
- The market just gave you another chance to buy in at yesterday's prices, today. Doesn't happen often in tech.
- So if you want to get ahead in growth, get to know the stocks that will come to define the 2020s - the Cloud Decade - join us.
- (Oh, and you get the #1 space sector service on SA for free too).

A 2021 Do-Over
Mainly in technology stocks, everything is always too expensive. There is never a good time to open a new position in a new stock. It's always stressful. Until you've owned a few for a little while, whereupon if you've chosen the right names, you can relax as they head up and to the right all by themselves.
Tech stocks are valued this way, and the companies grow this way, because tech is still a young industry and software is, famously, still eating the world.
But in the blink of an eye, no sooner did someone say "yield curve", that suddenly all tech names scooted right back to the start of the year on their stock charts.
Every headline everywhere said, it's all over for tech. Buy value. Buy boomer.
Now for about two weeks this was a great idea. Everyone under the age of 75 found out about dividends for the first time. Free money? Yes please! Oh wait - income tax? Two percent yield? Urgh. There must be something better out there.
Turns out there is. After a fortnight of collective self delusion, the market has once again decided that the best way to collect money quickly is ... growth stocks. The Nasdaq resumed its climb. But from a lower level. Quick - boomer stocks in the dumpster, load up on tech once more!
Now we could be wrong, it could be that 2021's best names make steel and airplanes and chicken fingers. But if we were betting - sorry, investing - we'd say, tech is still going to be where it's at come the end of 2021. And 2022. And indeed 2030.
