Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500: Road To New Highs Will Be Bumpy
There’s a long list of football players whose individual skills and successes will likely take them to the Hall of Fame. Yet there’s a gaping hole in their gridiron resumes: they’ve never won a Super Bowl. Whether it’s fair or not, winning the biggest game of them all does matter and carves out a special niche in football history.
In much the same way, investors have maintained their composure as the other, lesser indexes have muscled their way to fresh all-time highs, patiently waiting and reserving their celebration for the Big Dog — the S&P 500 — to get back into uncharted territory. Sure, we’re getting close. But until we actually break the record, it will stand as a black mark on an otherwise impressive rally.
“Small caps, mid caps, transports, the higher beta cyclical areas have made all-time highs,” says Jonathan Krinsky, chief market technical analyst at Miller Tabak & Co. “So you kind of have to give the benefit of the doubt to the big caps following suit.”
