President Biden has reiterated during his campaign that he wants to increase taxes on those earning more than $400,000. Only 2.6% of all U.S. households are above that income threshold. Yet that is equivalent to 3.4 million households (33% more than in 2019). 1

Money fund assets have surged by 25% since the beginning of last year, reaching $6.5 trillion. This flight to safety however may not pay off over the long term since stocks have outperformed cash by about 6% annually going all the way back to 1901. *2

Larger companies are performing better than smaller companies in good and bad markets. The Russell 2000 small-cap index rose less than 5% in the first quarter, compared to a 10% rise for the S&P 500. This month the index has fallen 8.3% vs. a 5.5% decline for the S&P. *3

The dollar has surged by approximately 9% against the Japanese yen, reaching a level unseen since the 1990s. This may decrease Japanese investor's willingness to buy US treasuries which is a problem since Japan is the largest foreign holder of treasuries. 4
