Why Are U.S. stocks So High? Here’s Why
The stock market in the U.K. and the U-S.
has both hit a record high and been outperforming their peers since the start of the year.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite have all gained more than 30% since June.
It’s the first time the Dow has surpassed 20,000 since December 2011.
The S&P 500 has climbed over 8,000 points.
As the economy continues to recover from the Great Recession, stocks have rallied across the board, and investors are confident that they will return to more normal levels.
But the U.-S.
market has been a bit more subdued.
According to FactSet, U..
S.-listed stocks have been the biggest winners, with companies in the S & P 500 and S≈ M companies up more than 50% since the beginning of the month.
More than 3,200 U.P. companies are trading on the New York Stock Exchange, up more to 2,700 since the end of June, according to Factset.
Companies that have traded on the S-Street index have enjoyed a big rebound, with shares in the Nas, Nasdaq, and Nasdaq Total Market Index up more that 600%.
That includes the Dow Jones and the SSE’s S> Dow Jones indices.
The Nasdaq has been particularly strong, up 8% and 8.5% since mid-June.
In the U., the Dow is up 8.6%, the S;P is up 9.2%, the Nas is up 12.2% and the Russell 1000 is up 5.4%.
The S< P500 index is up 15% since last week, while the S.E.
P 500 index is down 3%.
In Europe, the FTSE 100 is up 14.2%.
In Asia, the Nikkei 225 is up 10% and Shanghai Composite is up 16.4% in recent weeks.
In Australia, the Australian dollar is up 4.6% and Perth is up 7.4%, according to the Reserve Bank of Australia.
Australia is the biggest economy in the world.
Despite the strong performance, investors are still hesitant to invest in stocks as it is still early in the recovery and there are still some uncertainties around the U -S.
economy and jobs market.
Some analysts say it is more important to focus on the U to determine how stocks will fare during the long-term.
