India's Gain is China's Loss

June 3, 2024

Enjoy this week's "Investor Insights," a weekly newsletter that highlights the financial news you need and provides tips and tricks for making better investment decisions. 

  • Since 2020, India has become a standout among emerging country markets. Its weight in the MSCI Emerging Markets Stock Index has doubled from 9% to 18%, while China's has decreased from 43% to 25%. *1
  • Over the past 50 years, the S&P 500 has averaged a 1.8% gain (median: 3.27%) from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with gains occurring 70% of the time. In the last ten years, however, the average gain increased to 3.8% (median: 4.6%). *2
  • More than half of Gen Z and Millennial investors rely on social media for investment information. However, a study by the Swiss Finance Institute found that 56% of 'fin-fluencers' underperform their peers by 2.3% monthly, indicating "negative skill." 2
  • American Cities have not fully recovered from the pandemic, which is weighing on the office and retail sectors. Cellphone activity data shows that downtown San Francisco is at 57% of pre-pandemic levels, while Las Vegas is at 97%, and Miami is at 82% of 2019 levels. 3
