Microsoft reportedly plans to invest $10 billion in OpenAI (2 min read)

OpenAI is the startup behind the popular A.I. tool ChatGPT. It is a chatbot with the ability to interact in conversational dialog and provide responses that can appear surprisingly human. Microsoft plans on investing $10 billion in OpenAI and will get 75% of the company’s profit until it makes back the money on its investment.

Jamie Dimon says Fed 'may very well' raise interest rates to 6% (3 min read)

He correctly predicted last year that the Fed will hike rates six to seven times when the market only expected three to four hikes.

Most market corrections in the past did not take long to find their respective bottoms. Since this century began, it takes an average of about 15 months for the S&P 500 to find its bottom after the Fed begins an interest rate easing cycle. The current concern is that the Fed is nowhere near an easing cycle which may suggest that the market is still a long way from the bottom. During a potential lengthy bear market, it might be wise to hold dividend stocks or defensive sectors.

Buffered ETFs’ $10 Billion Year (5 min read)
