  • At one time, Apple was the largest company in the world, accounting for more than 7% of the entire S&P 500. Given its size, some investors are worried about its recent underperformance. Since 2012, the S&P 500 has dropped nine of the 12 times Apple has fallen over a three-month period. 1
  • From 2013 through 2023, the number of US millionaires increased 62% to $5.5 million. Austin, TX and Scottsdale, AZ had the most growth, but New York City still boasts the most millionaires (350K). 2
  • March 23rd was the fourth anniversary of the stock market’s low point during the Covid pandemic. Since then, the S&P 500 has had an annualized total return of 25.6%. Only 35 stocks (out of the entire S&P 500) have declined since that low four years ago. 3
  • High mortgage rates and rising prices have now made it cheaper to rent rather than own a home in all 50 of the largest metros. This gap is widest in Austin, Texas, where the median monthly mortgage is $3,695, while the median rent is only $1,530. 4
