Stocks were wobbly on Tuesday as worries about rising prices and high inflation, which rocked the market last year, continued to trouble investors in the new year.

The S&P 500 fell 0.92%, with the December manufacturing index falling from its intraday high at its fastest pace since May 2020. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 217 points, or 0.66%, and the Nasdaq Composite fell 1.29%.

Shares Tesla And Apple While the tech sector was hit hard as the Federal Reserve raised rates to fight inflation, it slipped, weighing on the broader market, a key theme ahead from 2022. Tesla fell more than 12% following disappointing fourth-quarter deliveries and Apple fell more than 3% on reports it would cut production due to weak demand.

This theme could continue into 2023 as the Fed is poised to continue raising interest rates in the coming months, stoking fears that the US economy could fall into recession.

“A sluggish environment in 2023 could further hamper the performance of tech stocks in the new year, as investors’ thirst for value-oriented companies and higher profit margins, more stable cash flows and stronger dividend yields increases,” wrote Greg Bassuk, CEO. AXS Investments in New York.

The major averages finished 2022 with their worst annual losses since 2008, snapping a three-year winning streak. The Dow ended the year down 8.8%, 10.3% off its 52-week high. The S&P 500 has lost 19.4% for the year and is off more than 20% from its record high. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fell 33.1% last year.
