Goldman’s Oppenheimer Says Tech Can Continue Driving Bull Market

(Bloomberg) — Technology stocks remain investors’ best bet and can continue driving returns in the current bull market, according to Peter Oppenheimer, Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s chief global equity strategist, even as the near-term risk of a market correction persists.

The Wall Street guru is advising clients to keep their faith in tech stocks after numerous market players got burned last week during a plunge in the Nasdaq 100 Index, driven by some of the frothier tech companies like Amazon.com and Apple Inc. Goldman is maintaining its overweight recommendation in tech stocks in every region thanks to the sector’s strong cash generation, earnings and stable balance sheets, said Oppenheimer.

In backing some of the biggest stock market winners of the past six months, Oppenheimer is wagering on an acceleration in the “digital revolution” fueled by lockdowns and increased use of the internet and technology as working from home became the

After August’s remarkable gains, we were wondering what the stock market could do for an encore. The answer: produce some remarkable losses.

The

S&P 500

index fell 2.3% to 3426.96 this past week, while the

Dow Jones Industrial Average

declined 520.56 points, or 1.8%, to 28,133.31. The tech-heavy

Nasdaq Composite

dropped 3.3% to 11,313.13. All in all, the Nasdaq gave back nearly half of its August gains. Not a great way to start a holiday weekend.

The week began well enough, with

Tesla

(ticker: TSLA) and

Apple

(APPL) splitting their stocks, and all three indexes finishing August with fantastic gains. September started well enough, too, with the Nasdaq and S&P 500 hitting all-time highs on Wednesday and the Dow just 1.5% away from its own record. But

20 Minutes With: Hypergiant Industries’ Chief Ethics Officer Will Griffin on Diversity and Ethics in Technology

The blistering pace of the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and other new technologies follows the old “move fast, break things” mantra of the tech business, which often favors getting something to market before considering the broader implications of the role a product could play in society. 

Considering AI’s ever-increasing role in day-to-day life—from autonomous cars to contact tracing—a role like that of Hypergiant Industries’ Chief Ethics Officer Will
Griffin
becomes more crucial. 

Griffin, 49, has been at the
Austin
-based AI company just over a year (he was previously at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Urban Institute, among other roles), and in that time has helped Hypergiant hone a code of ethics that directs how it does business and the solutions it offers its public and private sector clients. Ethics have long played a backseat role in tech but are now rapidly ascending as new initiatives consider,

ThoughtRiver nabs $10M to speed up deal-making with AI contract review

ThoughtRiver, a London-based legaltech startup that’s applying AI to speed up contract pre-screening, has announced a $10 million Series A round of funding led by Octopus Ventures. Existing seed investors Crane, Local Globe, Entrée Capital, Syndicate Room, and angel investor Duncan Painter also participated in the round.

The UK startup is one of a number applying AI to automate work that would otherwise be done by legal professions with the aim of boosting operational efficiency. Other startups playing in the space include the likes of Kira Systems, LawGeex and Luminance to name a few.

ThoughtRiver argues it has a different focus vs the majority of contract view companies because it’s focusing on pre-signature contracts — with the aim of making securing a deal faster. “Almost all others are just employed to pull data from existing contracts. ThoughtRiver is as much in demand by Sales teams as it is by Legal,”
