Jon's Articles

Technology bulls and bears fought Friday to a draw as traders remained unimpressed by the latest batch of stronger-than-expected earnings reports from big technology companies, states Jon Markman, editor of Strategic Advantage.
Two decades ago, three friends were working at legacy computer networking companies. They had an idea that could radically disrupt the entire sector by turning expensive hardware into software. This low-end disruption model would drive down costs and force the legacy companies they worked for to move upstream to protect profit margins. This is the tale of Arista Networks (ANET), writes Jon Markman, editor of Disruptors & Dominators.
Bears started Thursday determined to finally put bulls back on their heels following earnings reports from the previous session from Cisco Systems (CSCO) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), states Jon Markman, editor of Strategic Advantage.
Technology bears spent Tuesday fleeing into the hinterland as their remaining defenses were systematically targeted and destroyed, states Jon Markman, editor of Strategic Advantage.
