The NASDAQ Got Slammed, And Big Banks Surged One Firm Thinks This Is A Sign Of Things To Come

It was an interesting an odd day today. Shares of tech leader Apple got destroyed for seemingly no reason, bringing down the NASDAQ.

On the other hand, mega-banks like Bank of America and Citi (which announced huge layoffs) surged.

That brings us to this recent chart from SocGen, comparing tech vs. banks.

One of the firm's big calls for 2013 is that the pendulum would swing back towards banks from tech, and that the extremes we've seen recently (in favor of tech and against banks) was only matched during the NASDAQ bubble. Is this the turning of the tide?

there are reasons that Apple went down today.

a lot of call options will expire soon.

on top of that,
everybody knows that when you can
sell something for $600, that only costs $30 to make,
you attract competition.
