Sierra CIO on MarketWatch: More Stocks Taking the S&P Stage But Big Tech is Still Big Dog

"A growing number of stocks are joining the market’s rally — even as Big Tech still gets the most attention"

A rally in Big Tech stocks received most of the credit for driving global markets higher this week. But in the U.S., they couldn’t have done it without a little help from their friends.

As the S&P 500 SPX booked its best weekly advance since early January, one detail set this week apart: All 11 of the large-cap index’s sectors managed to finish in the green for the first time since November, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The S&P 500 managed to clinch its 13th record close of 2024 on Friday, even as information-technology stocks and other sectors associated with Big Tech finished the session in the red, according to FactSet data.
