Technology stocks are the subject of much discussion at the moment – for good reason, because their performance has been the driving force behind the extraordinary rally seen on equity markets since March of this year. The overheating has taken valuations to excessive levels. "Investors are a bit nervous about that, and are taking profits," says John Woods, Regional CIO for APAC with Credit Suisse, in this interview. This is causing volatility on the markets. Although the trend is making investors nervous in the short term, equities remain attractive from a medium-term perspective. Watch the video to find out why there are grounds to be optimistic about stock prices.
