Stock markets aren’t really out of line in any direction, to hear one strategist tell it.

“We haven’t got a big qualm with the market at this point in time. I don’t see really significant, anomalous valuations in the market, and that takes me to this idea of staying invested, being diversified, but not being too tactically adventurous,” said Joseph Little, global chief strategist at HSBC Global Asset Management.

Little added the Nasdaq Composite (COMP) isn’t as stretched as it was during the dot-com bubble. HSBC is overweight global stocks, particularly for Northern Asian emerging markets that are leveraged to China’s recovery.

Little isn’t a proponent of the argument, however, to switch now into cyclical stocks from the defensive companies that have outperformed. “I think you need to have a bit more confidence in a macro momentum story, of upgrades to

The Best TikTok-Famous Beauty Products | The Strategist

Though TikTok is perhaps best known for producing viral dances and making Donald Trump mad, the app has quietly morphed into a next-generation QVC, unearthing useful doodads and oddball gadgets you didn’t know you needed. A product that goes viral on TikTok can sell out for months at a time, and the hashtag #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt has racked up 645.1 million views (and probably as many dollars in sales).

No products sell faster on TikTok than beauty products, whether it’s a DIY eyebrow lamination kit, men’s shaving powder, or a shower jelly that costs exactly $1. And because the app is dominated by teens, many of these things are easy on the wallet (or the allowance, as it were). To find out what lives up to the hype, we spent hours exchanging hundreds of DMs with TikTok influencers, asking just one

Although we often refer to sneakers as tennis shoes, if you’re at all serious about tennis, you don’t want to wear your sneakers on the tennis court. One distinction between your casual tennis shoes and shoes specifically made for tennis is their tread. According to Mike Layton, owner and CEO of Westside Tennis, “running shoes have more of a one-direction tread.” They’re not made for 360-degree movement like tennis shoes. While they may have pretty good grip, “if you start changing directions in a running shoe, you might hurt yourself because you are not going to be able to pivot on the ground as easily as you will with a tennis shoe.”

The other big difference is the structure and support of a tennis shoe, which are essential for handling those quick changes of direction. Because of
