It's Gut Check Time

After a big spike on the market on Wednesday following the Fed releasing meeting minutes, Thursday saw the worst day for the Nasdaq since 2011. Was this just a blip, or the beginning of a painful decline?

In this segment of Friday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst James Early take a look at some of the high-flying tech stocks that make up the Nasdaq today. James notes that, because these stocks grew so quickly, there's plenty of room left for them to pull back, and that the volatile ride may not be over yet for this sector. The guys also discuss why now would be a great time for investors go to back and look at the reason they invested in these stocks in the first place, to see if they still believe in their investing theses, and to decide if they have the stomach for volatility here.

    It's payback time for growth investors. Call me mean, but I like joke stocks like Amazon ("drones and flying saucers delivering goods!") with its 600+ P/E ration, to finally collapse down to earth. That'd be a healthy return to reason.
