This chart crossed my desk this morning…
Fresh from the “we are entirely too top heavy” department:
Two companies, Apple and Microsoft, are currently worth more than four entire market sectors.

Exploiting the Biggest Misallocation of Capital in Modern Times
The S&P and Nasdaq are market-cap weighted indices. That means when companies are big winners, they increase the weighting in the index.
