The Economy and the Market

We had a revision to third-quarter GDP the other day up to 3.3%.  So the last few quarters look like this.

The other week, Adam Shell of USA TODAY had a list of the so-called “21-Club,” 21 U.S. tech and blue chip stocks that have been driving the market’s gains this year.  This is a little dated, but the market has only powered higher since and I wanted to get down for the archives the 21 that a/o 11/14/2017, accounted for 50.7% of the S&P 500’s total return (Apple nearly 10% alone).

Will these stocks continue to power the advance?  What happens during the inevitable decline?

Apple 9.34% index contribution
Microsoft 5.21%
Facebook, Class A 4.61%
Amazon.com 4.61%
Alphabet, Class A 2.31%
Alphabet, Class B 2.26%
Johnson & Johnson 2.15%
Visa, Class A 1.95%
Boeing 1.88%
NVIDIA 1.85%
AbbVie 1.60%
UnitedHealth Group 1.52%
Intel 1.36%
Home Depot 1.35%
JPMorgan Chase 1.34%
Mastercard, Class A 1.34%
Bank of America 1.33%
McDonald’s 1.22%
Adobe Systems 1.16%
