Dollars & Sense: All is Merry and Bright With the Market

December 21, 2023

Thanks for joining Marc and Marion for the second to last episode of Dollars & Sense in 2023! Christmas shopping is done and we’re ready to enjoy the quality time with our families. Christmas, family, chocolates, and gifts all put smiles on our faces, but that’s not the only thing making us smile right now…

With 2023 coming to an end, we’re ending on a very positive note. The last 7 or so weeks we’ve seen positive performance. Who would have thought that the NASDAQ would end up almost 40% at this point. Since the end of October, the S&P 500 is up about 16% - in less than two months! An interesting statistic shared by Mass Financial Services in Boston was the seven tech stocks (Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Nvidia, Meta, and Tesla), also referred to as the “Magnificent Seven” hit record highs this past month. What’s interesting is that those stocks are on average up 105% as of December 18, 2023. But, in 2022, the average of these stocks was DOWN 46%. See how quickly things change in a year? This is a prime example as to why we don’t chase the wild volatility and why a diversified portfolio is important.

Tune in to this week’s episode of Dollars & Sense as Marc and Marion discuss the stock market and ending the year on a bright note in a language you can understand.
