MARKET ROTATION

To start out the week we had a big rotation take place from growth to value. We saw money flowing out of the high multiple stocks, like in the software and cloud names, and into low multiple stocks, such as in the energy and financials sector.

Semiconductors

One previously beat up sector that seemed to benefit from the move out of the high flyers are the Semiconductors

Apple Event

Apple held their much anticipated event in Cupertino, California, where they announced the new iPhone 11 and Apple Watch Series 5, as well as finally gave investors pricing and launch dates for their much anticipated services, Apple Tv+ and Apple Arcade.

Check out the stories below to see where Apple TV+ fits in the streaming wars and what the lower prices for iPhones could mean for the stock.

We also got some analyst notes on a few of the Jim Cramer dubbed WATCH stocks: Wal-Mart (WMT - Get Report) , Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) , Target (TGT - Get Report) , Costco (COST - Get Report) and Home Depot (HD - Get Report) .

AT&T

Activist Fund Elliott Management took a $3.2 Billion stake in AT&T. This could be good for the company as they have a lot of different assets that need be brought together and Elliott should be able to help make sure they execute and fight for shareholders.
