Suddenly layoffs are everywhere – and not just in tech.  If the news is so bad, why are tech stocks UP this week?

I have been asked more than a few times about the quick run-up in tech stock prices following two months of seemingly BAD news.  The stocks are having a fairly predictable reaction to something the stock markets usually embraces, at least for a moment: Layoffs.

January is not over and layoff news has dominated the business media.  Well, except for news about SBF, the FTX CEO who should probably STFU while awaiting trial.  The headlines I am referencing have contained an impressive list of impacted companies cutting staff including: Spotify (600), Google (12,000), Microsoft (10,000), Salesforce (8,000), Amazon (18,000), Coinbase (950) and even Vimeo (140).  DAMN! That’s approximately 50,000 tech workers and the year is still young.
