8 Stocks accountable for the entire S/P 500 gain

“Given the performance of the major Wall Street averages, it should probably not come as a surprise just how much of an outlier the tech sector’s gains have been. To understand how big a boost the SPX has received from tech shares, add in significant upticks by Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) (+19% YTD), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) (+12% YTD), and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) (+118% YTD)—these four names have been responsible for 84% of the index’s total gains so far this year.”

I would reckon a LOT of people who invest in S&P500 would have had a fine time picking those instead of 492 trash stocks within the index.
