Big Tech Under Pressure Following Georgia Run-Off Election – On January 6, 2021, Mayflower Advisors’ Managing Partner Larry Glazer joined Fox Business’ “Word on Wall Street” to discuss Georgia’s Senate run-off and its potential impact on big tech and broader market activity. Glazer notes that the elections of Jon Ossoff (D) and Rev. Raphael Warnock (D) facilitate President-elect Joseph Biden’s ability to implement his economic agenda: “The bottom line is that a Democratic-controlled Washington is bad news for big technology companies…, but …there’s plenty of opportunity.” Glazer continues, “You need to change your portfolio in 2021: The last couple of years that meant more big tech brought out-performance. Now, it means less big tech, more of everything else. That’s how you’re going to make money in 2021.”

This is going to be the biggest I.P.O. year—certainly since 2014, but in many ways much more significant: It’s really a reflection of everything we have been through this year.”
