Docs reveal the dark side of big tech cos

The spectacle of the chief executives of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google testifying before Congress last week made for good TV drama. Yet the theatrics of the showdown distracted from the real payoff of the hearings: the accompanying cache of subpoenaed emails and texts from the past decade and a half. These documents provide compelling evidence — long rumored but seldom established — that the companies, especially Facebook and Amazon, in their rise to dominance did not always play by the rules and apparently violated antitrust laws.Both public opinion and American law distinguish between two kinds of dominant company. The first is the monopoly fairly held: a corporation like Ford Motor that achieves dominance by virtue of its incomparable greatness. The second, its evil doppelgänger, is the company that achieves dominance unfairly — for instance, by suffocating or absorbing would-be challengers.The Big Tech companies insist that their rise to power has been the first story, a saga of ingenuity and courage, and that their market dominance is a byproduct of continued excellence.

One of the biggest debates on Wall Street in 2020 has been whether or not the tech sector is currently experiencing a bubble like it did during the dot com era roughly 20 years ago. DataTrek Research recently conducted a survey of more than 300 subscribers to determine how the average investor feels about tech stocks these days. When asked if they believe the tech sector is currently experiencing a market bubble, 56% of respondents said no and just 44% said yes. The Nasdaq is up another 36.3% in the past year despite the first economic recession in more than a decade. Even with the skepticism over tech stock valuations, 85% of respondents believe big U.S. tech stocks have additional upside over the next 12 months, with 70% expecting at least 5% additional upside. Survey respondents said COVID-19’s impact on American’s use of technology (33%) and Federal Reserve stimulus (27%) are the two biggest factors driving tech stock outperformance in 2020.
