Weekly Update: August 26, 2021
S & P still ringing up record highs, in spite of Covid, Afghanistan etc.
Is this totally driven by pent up demand in a post Covid world or ???
The S & P registering 50 or more record highs is very rare.
Here’s the latest…
What the S&P 500 ringing up 50 record highs in 2021 says to stock-market historians
The S&P 500 index has produced 50 record closing highs so far this year, amid growing questions about how much farther stocks have to rise in the rebound phase from the COVID-19 pandemic before buckling.
MarketWatch already has noted that stocks have enjoyed a lengthy period without a drawdown of at least 5% from a recent peak.
This current series of records for the broad-market index, however, may raise some questions about the market performance after such a sequence of all-time highs.
Firstly, it’s worth noting that registering 50 or more record highs for the S&P 500 SPX, -0.44% is a relatively rare occurrence. It has happened only seven times so far, including Tuesday’s, according to Dow Jones Market Data.
However, on average the S&P 500 has delivered an annual gain of 23% in years when there were at least 50 record closes, with a median return of 21.27%.

Cap-Weighted vs. Equally Weighted S&P 500 ETFs – Which is Better?
Research Affiliates and Dimensional Fund Advisors have been among the esteemed research and investment firms proclaiming that equally weighted portfolios will deliver superior performance to portfolios weighted by market capitalization also known as cap-weighted. This article explores to what extent that has been true in recent years.
IVV is the iShares S&P 500 Index ETF. RSP, part of the INVESCO family, is an ETF holding the identical 500 stocks but with equally weighted positions. We begin our comparison January 1, 2004, the first full year that RSP was in existence and complete the analysis with the end-of-day prices of the ETFs on June 30, 2021. For an investor, these numbers reflect realizable returns. Indexes themselves are not directly accessible, so these ETFs are used instead.
