The Tech Growth Engine, An Impressive November & 5 Things Every Portfolio Should Have

The Tech Growth Engine Continues & November Showed Impressive Numbers

The Money Wise guys are back – with LOTS of numbers, propelled by the tech growth engine and more. Here’s where the markets ended up last week: The Dow was up 2.4%, the S&P 500 was up 0.8%, and the NASDAQ was up 0.4%. YTD the Dow is up 9.3%, the S&P is up 19.7%, and the NASDAQ is up a whopping 36.7%. November was a strong month, with the Dow up 8.8%, the S&P 500 up 8.9%, and the NASDAQ up 10.7%. On this strong performance, we are now less than 2% away from an all-time high on the Dow, less than 5% away from an all-time high for the S&P, and less than 12% away from an all-time high for the NASDAQ. The Money Wise guys admit they never saw this coming – especially on the backs of 11 interest rate increases since March of 2022. Is the Fed done now? Will we see a broad market rally in 2024, outside of the Magnificent 7 tech growth engine? The Money Wise guys discuss all this and more, plus give a reminder about why it’s a failed strategy to be either all-in or all-out of the markets.

The Tech Growth Engine is Still Chugging Along

When the Money Wise guys mention the tech growth engine, they are referring to the Magnificent 7 tech stocks that have propelled market momentum all year long.
