    Wall Street was able to claw back some of its lost ground on Friday, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average bounced back from about 1,250 points’ worth of losses on Wednesday and Thursday. Major benchmarks were up anywhere from 1% to 2%, but some investors weren’t pleased to see that the small-cap Russell 2000 Index wasn’t able to join its larger-cap peers in posting similar gains. Largely forgotten amid the market’s volatility is the fact that third-quarter earnings season is underway, and some stocks suffered from disappointing results. PNC Financial Services Group (NYSE:PNC), Wabash National (NYSE:WNC), and Momenta Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:MNTA) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    However, Canada becoming the first developed country in the world to legalize adult-use cannabis is far from the only “marijuana first” we’ve witnessed this year. In February, Canadian weed investment company Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), which has three core assets, announced that it was becoming the first Canadian pot stock to uplist to the Nasdaq (NASDAQ:NDAQ). Moving from the over-the-counter (OTC) exchange to a more reputable exchange like the Nasdaq allowed for improved liquidity, as well as cleared the way for institutional investors to take a position in Cronos Group. Wall Street traditionally shies away from investing in OTC-listed companies.

    When you think “tech stocks,” you generally don’t think about real estate investment trusts, or REITs, but Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR) certainly fits into both categories. The data center REIT’s growth story could just be getting started if we continue to become more and more connected as a society.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP®]

    And to be clear, this quote doesn’t just apply when the entire market is greedy or fearful. As a personal example, one data center real estate investment trust posted some troubling results, so investors became fearful of all data center REITs, driving down prices. In the midst of the selling, I decided to pick up some more shares of Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), one of my favorite stocks. Since I bought them earlier this year, the market seems to have acknowledged the fears were overblown, and shares are up by more than 20% since then.

A nail-biter for new retirees: What if the next market correction arrives soon?

Even if stocks and bonds do well over the long term, a bear market early on can do permanent damage to a retiree&s;s living standard. The experts call this sequence risk. &q;It&s;s not the average return but the timing of the returns&q; that can kill you, says Dan Keady, who oversees financial planning strategies at TIAA.

Say you have $1 million in your IRA and quit your job at age 66. If you knew there would be no down markets and knew you and your spouse wouldn&s;t live past 91, you could live pretty well. You could draw out $40,000 the first year, give yourself annual raises to keep up with the cost of living, and be reasonably assured of never running out of money.
