Beyond the Mag 7: Unmasking the Stark Reality of a Troubled Market

Sharing is Caring!

In the dazzle of the Mag 7’s soaring earnings, a hidden truth emerges. For the 384 out of 1,946 companies comprising the Russell 2000, Q4 earnings reveal a shocking -53% QoQ growth. Is the market poised for something far more ominous than we think?

It’s not just a concern for investors; it’s a national security issue. The capital markets’ inability to efficiently allocate capital raises alarms. Equally unsettling is the fact that the equity market cap stands at 185% of GDP, a perilous 40% higher than the Dotcom Bubble Peak.

The question looms: Should Powell be trembling or rejoicing?

The chart tells a story, one that might not end well for valuations.
