Don’t be duped by doomsayers, JPMorgan says — the S&P 500 will rebound to 4,900. Here are 3 stocks it’s using to bet on a bounce
Looking at the S&P 500 right now, you might be convinced the stock market is destined for doom in 2022.

Notably, Smartsheet’s dollar-based net retention rate was a solid 133%.
