Technology Rotation Continues – Silver Linings Emerge

Where is money flowing for the moment? From Technology into Industrials and Financials. Here are the effective tax rates of the “FANG’s” Facebook ($FB), Apple ($AAPL), Netflix ($NFLX) and Alphabet ($GOOGL). Notice how I omitted Amazon ($AMZN), more on that in a minute.
