  • NVIDIA accounted for 35% of the increase in the S&P 500's market cap since the beginning of the year. This concentration means that if NVIDIA rises, the market is stable; if it falls, the S&P 500 could drop significantly, making investors vulnerable to fluctuations in that single stock. *1
  • Before the pandemic, 38% of outstanding mortgages had interest rates below 4%. Today, this figure is 63%. This indicates housing is slowly adjusting to Fed rate hikes, as many households still benefit from low pandemic-era rates. 1
  • Younger Americans are investing earlier. On average, Gen Z (born 1997-2012) started saving and investing at 19, while baby boomers (born 1946-1964) began at 35. Despite this early start, only 45% of Gen Zers invest, compared to 54% of millennials (born 1981-1996), 58% of Generation X (born 1965-1980), and 63% of baby boomers. 2
  • A study of more than 52,000 employees at 6,800 businesses found that the average distance to work increased a whopping 170% on average, from just 10 miles in 2019 to 27 miles at the end of 2023. 3
