  •  The concentration in the S&P 500 continues to increase, and the ten largest stocks now make up 35% of the index, the highest level since the last tech bubble in 2000. 1
  • In a recent survey, 26% of women agreed with the statement "I don't have enough saved for retirement," compared to 19% of men. Additionally, the survey revealed a contrast in emergency savings, with women holding a median of $2,400 (vs. a median of $9,000 in savings for men). 2
  • Mega-cap tech stocks are heavily embracing artificial intelligence, as evident from the Q3 earnings calls of Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta, Microsoft, and NVIDIA. The companies mentioned "AI" 418 times, a significant increase from just 109 mentions a year ago. 2
  • November marked the 16th instance since 1979 when the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Russell 2000 all surged at least 7.5% in the same month. Historically, after the previous 15 occurrences, median returns over the next year were +13.2% (S&P 500), +16.9% (Nasdaq), and +13.1% (Russell 2000). *2
