Chart of the Week - Tech Tumbles Amid Trade Tussles
Concerns over escalating trade tensions with China roiled Wall Street over the past week, with tech shares hit disproportionately hard. The NASDAQ Composite (which is heavily tech-focused) slid 278bps since early last week, underperforming the S&P by ~70bps.
How will the trade concerns impact Silicon Valley investors? Difficult to say at this point as the full scope of trade policy has yet to be finalized and - as is many times the case - the devil is likely to be in the details. Further, unlike public markets where sentiment and expectations are immediately evident, any impact from trade will take time to feed into private valuations given lags between funding rounds. We note some potential ramifications of the new trade initiatives for startups below:
