Says disappointing second quarter report raised a big alarm among investors Tuesday as the shares tumbled as much as fourteen percent their biggest drop in two years the results. Were seen as, a, specially, surprising because of Netflix is massive growth last year which showed no signs of slowing down but overall, big tech shrug off the news the NASDAQ one hundred. Index hitting a new record Tuesday and looking at the bigger picture you can see from this chart in the library large cap. Tech has easily outperformed the s. and p. five hundred in the last few years so, do net flicks is results signal that there should? Be more cautious going into this earnings season here all this answer that question we are joined, by Michael Pervez weeded and Cho's? Chief global strategist and our very own Bloomberg opinions share Lovie days. So Michael first of all should? The rest of the investment. Community be concerned about? Other big tech companies. Not living up. To expectations, over the next couple of weeks as they report Yeah Step back for a. Second you realize how important thing is to the tech sector and how important the tech sector of the overall market anyone needs to sort of care about how the performance is going to. Be I've been continuing to overweight tack for a few years now including this year for all sorts of. Reasons but having said that right now if you look at the FANG index market cap weighted basis it's actually, at a higher than it was. Back in late January before all the volatility. Erupted there and start prices not the index for the FANG is not quite as overextended above workings of poor. As it was back then but it is certainly up there so I think Regardless, of what you might think about. The individual companies It seems like right now for the earning season for the other, guys that are going to be coming later. This week it's really the stars up to pretty perfectly so.
