Investors who placed their hard-earned cash into major U.S. indices have enjoyed respectable returns over the past five years. Despite a number of market corrections in recent years, the recent market downturn partially generated by the Russia-Ukraine war and the previous stock market crash of 2020, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF SPY, Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 QQQ and SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust DIA have returned 58.31%, 104.65% and 45.65%.
As good as investors in the major U.S. indices have had it over the past five years, a number of the world’s most popular consumer discretionary, EV and tech stocks have provided even better returns. Bulls that took a chance on these names were rewarded with gains that outperformed much of the broader market.
