  • Growing geopolitical risk has drawn the attention of investors recently. Within the S&P 500 the technology and materials sector have the highest exposure with 59% and 53% of their revenue generated outside the US. The utilities sector meanwhile only generates 1% of its revenue internationally. 1
  • The stock market is hitting numerous all-time highs this year, a shift from previous years. From 2013 to 2021, the S&P 500 averaged slightly over 38 all-time highs before entering a bear market, with only one occurrence in 2022 and none in 2023. However, in 2024, there have already been 22 new highs in the first four months of the year! *2
  • Individuals reporting incomes over $500K or under $25K face double the likelihood of an IRS audit compared to those with incomes between $25K and $500K (0.4% versus 0.2%). Those reporting incomes exceeding $10 million have the highest audit probability, averaging 2.4% in 2020. 3
  • S&P operating earnings are projected to rise by 10% this year, followed by increases of 14% and 11% in the next two years. Such consecutive double-digit growth outside of recession recoveries has only occurred twice since the 1980s, during the mid-1990s and mid-2000s. 4
