With Unity being the first among its peers to report earnings this season, we don't have anywhere else to look at to get a hint at how this quarter will unravel for vertical software stocks, but the segment has been facing declining investor sentiment following the fears around raising interest rates, with the stocks down on average 8.81% over the last month. Unity is down 14.1% during the same time, and is heading into the earnings with analyst price target of $133.2, compared to share price of $111.1.

One way to find opportunities in the market is to watch for generational shifts in the economy.
