Tech’s outperformance has “normal stocks” paling in comparison
We’ve made a killing in tech stocks over the last 10 years. Its growth has way outperformed what it does historically. Historically, it’s been normal to average about 10% per year. We've seen 18% per year for the last 10 years even though the rest of the value and small-cap companies have done about average. It's not that these small-cap companies are horrible performers, it’s that growth has been so ridiculous over the last 10 years, it makes everything pale in comparison.
This week on the tipping point...knowing what you own and why you own it!
Up until the pandemic hit back in March, many people would ask why they own bonds? They don't pay very much. It costs a lot to buy them. However, as the pandemic hit, bonds were the only thing in their portfolio that was profitable, and now you have the ability to take some profits from the bonds and buy back into the market when it's low. A bond is something that is negatively correlated. That just means it goes up and down differently than the rest of your financial assets. For more on this check out the episode!
This week’s hidden facts of finance
It may surprise you that when a Democrat takes over the presidency from a Republican (which, for the record, we're NOT saying has happened yet) the average cycle return has been 43.6%. What usually shocks everyone to find out is that a market under a Democratic president historically has done better than a market under a Republican president. Just so you don't get too concerned, it doesn't matter if it's a Democrat or Republican because historically the market's always going up as long as SOMEONE is sitting in the oval office!
