    I don’t know if you guys remember but I raise my target on S&P 500 $spx to 200,000 (multiplied by 1% important to do the math here) so I could be in the linear extrapolating cool kids club in some kind of spirit even if my target is still 2000

  • From _DPone_:

    Think that:”An equal-weight version of the S&P 500, where megacap hegemony is reduced, rose 0.7% this week, compared with the classic market-cap weighted S&P 500, which ended the week down 0.6%.”
