1 0 9

Aside from this past week, stocks have been on a tear this year. In fact, stocks have been on a tear for the last year and a half. From the pandemic lows in March of last year to the recent highs, the Dow has surged by more than 96%, the S&P by 107%, and the Nasdaq by 139%! It’s been a record-setting move. And with full-year GDP expected to grow at the fastest pace in 37 years, it looks like there’s a lot more upside to go. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be any bumps in the road along the way. We’re already seeing some now. Although, this is true for any year. This year’s bumps come in the form of inflation, supply chain disruptions, and worker shortages.

I’m talking about things you could have known about or SHOULD have known about before you got in. Did You Know?... • Did you know that roughly half of a stock's price movement can be attributed to the group that it’s in? • Did you also know that a mediocre stock in a top-performing group often outperforms a ‘great’ stock in a poor-performing group? • And did you know that the top 50% of Zacks Ranked Industries outperforms the bottom 50% by a factor of more than 2 to 1? • And did you also know that the top 10% of industries outperformed the most?
