    How spy balloons, storms and a market rally hit stocks in February

    Investors have spurred a rally across stock markets this year, bringing a glow back to some growth stocks, but companies are cutting jobs amid what could be a hard economic landing.

    Fisher Funds portfolio manager Harry Smith said the United States company earnings season revealed large-scale job cuts.

    Technology companies were being forced to lay off the staff hired during the pandemic boom, he told the Herald’s Stock Takes podcast.
