Will The SPY ETF Reach $500 By 2022?

Every week, Benzinga conducts a sentiment survey to find out what traders are most excited about, interested in or thinking about as they manage and build their personal portfolios.We surveyed a group of over 500 investors on whether the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NASDAQ: SPY) will reach $500 by 2022.What Are ETFs? ETF stands for exchange-traded funds. An ETF is an investment fund that trades on a stock exchange along with stocks for individual companies. ETFs track a sector, represent a commodity (like gold, oil or wheat) or sample a basket of stocks or bonds that meet a given criteria.The SPY ETF tracks the S&P 500. Exchange-traded funds are popular with investors given they can help mitigate risk in your portfolio.Tesla S&P Inclusion If you’re concerned the inclusion of Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) into the S&P 500 could destabilize the SPY ETF as a whole, consider the EV company represents only 1.6% overall weighting for the index fund.Benzinga recently reported that in a worst-case scenario in which Tesla gives up all its gains from the past two years, it would represent about 90% downside for the stock. At a 1.6% overall weighting for Tesla, that 90% downside would still only translate to a 1.44% decline for the S&P 500.SPY Forecast 2021 Nearly 60% of Benzinga traders and investors told us the SPY ETF would reach $500 by the end of next year. Those who participated in our study said SPY will see strength given the belief the US economy will significantly recover in 2021 and tech stocks will out-perform markets in 2021.As an index fund SPY is indeed tech-dependent- roughly one-third of represented companies in SPY are in the tech sector. Respondents to our study also believe consumer discretionary spending will increase in sympathy with an improving U.S. economy in 2021, led by tech giants Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN).Taking a look at SPY’s weighted average by market capitalization, the three FAANMG companies represent about 17% of the ETF’s market cap as of publishing.See Also: Blue Chip Stocks.This survey was conducted by Benzinga in December 2020 and included the responses of a diverse population of adults 18 or older.Opting into the survey was completely voluntary, with no incentives offered to potential respondents. The study reflects results from over 500 adults.See more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * Will SmileDirectClub Stock Reach By 2022? * Thinking About Buying Stock In GameStop, Qualcomm, Shell Or Palantir?(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

Darktrace Says Its AI Can Be Used for Employee Monitoring

(Bloomberg) — Darktrace Ltd.’s artificial intelligence could be used to better “understand the productivity and performance” of employees, the British company’s Chief Strategy Officer Nicole Eagan said.“There are adjacent applications” for businesses beyond the cybersecurity functions it focuses on now, Eagan said at the Web Summit conference on Thursday. The technology could also be used to help companies monitor compliance with laws like Europe’s GDPR data protection regime.Employers Panic-Buy Spy Software to Keep Tabs on Remote WorkersThe company’s technology works by learning how companies function, monitoring different processes such as employee email patterns to discover irregularities that might flag potential fraud or hacking vulnerabilities. Darktrace’s ability to autonomously respond to such irregularities could lead to other applications for businesses, Eagan said.A number of companies have turned to employee-monitoring software during the pandemic to help manage productivity from a suddenly remote workforce. These types of programs, which can monitor how long workers are logged on or the amount of time it takes to finish a task, can raise privacy concerns, particularly if people aren’t aware of the surveillance.Barclays Plc was investigated by the U.K.’s Information Commissioner’s Officer for using employee-monitoring tools earlier this year. The bank said the rollout was a limited pilot.Darktrace also aims to make its AI more holistic, moving to systems that can be “self healing” after a cyberattack, Eagan said. The company last year introduced an AI “analyst” that can interpret the system’s own findings as it searches for irregularities.The company, founded in 2013, is weighing an initial public offering as soon as next year.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
