“Most portfolios are nonetheless dominated primarily based on what’s been nice for the final decade”
Greg Jensen, the co-CIO at Bridgewater was speaking about this on the Odd Heaps podcast. The final decade has been dominated by U.S. megacap tech shares. And to Jensen’s level, individuals are positioned for that development to proceed.
This chart reveals the 50 shares that the majority continuously seem among the many largest 10 holdings of hedge funds. The highest 5 are Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Fb, and Apple.
Regardless that tech shares are actually of their deepest drawdown of the final decade, these six are nonetheless 39% greater than they had been at their pre-pandemic highs, and 90% increased than they had been on the lows in March 2020.
These firms have grown so giant that though this present drawdown is only some p.c greater than their 2020 fall, the greenback decline is greater than twice as giant given how a lot they’ve gained since then.
Proudly owning something aside from U.S. mega cap tech has appeared silly during the last decade. It’ll be attention-grabbing to see if diversification comes again in favor.
