Tech is driving the market down, says NewEdge Wealth's Cameron Dawson

Stock futures were calm on Sunday evening ahead of the first trading day in June.

Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average ticked up 27 points, or less than 0.1%. S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures were roughly flat.

Wall Street is coming off a strong May, with all three major averages notching their sixth positive month in seven. The Nasdaq Composite rose 6.9%, its best month since November 2023.

However, the rally seemed to lose steam near the end of the month. The three averages all closed May more than 1% below their record highs, even with the Dow adding more than 500 points on Friday. The Nasdaq fell 1.1% last week as chip stocks, including Nvidia, stumbled.

“Investor expectations are high, particularly for growth and tech companies. So companies who are missing earnings or issuing lackluster forward guidance are being punished,” said Dylan Kremer, chief investment officer at Certuity.

Those growth stocks can also be affected by moves in interest rates, which will be a key focus for investors ahead of the Federal Reserve meeting later this month. The first week of June is brimming with economic updates, including manufacturing data on Monday and a key jobs report on Friday.

Stock futures open little changed

Stock futures were largely unchanged shortly after 6 p.m. in New York, with the three major contracts within 0.2% of the flatline.
