WHAT ELSE HAPPENED
Six of the S&P 500's top stocks, like Tesla, Carnival, and Advanced Micro Devices, have experienced significant declines of 20% or more from their recent highs. These drops have placed them in bear-market territory. This is surprising for investors because these stocks were previously performing well, with gains of over 35%. The reason behind these reversals is the growing concern about higher interest rates, which is causing turbulence in the S&P 500. Wall Street is realizing that despite concerns, the Federal Reserve is likely to start raising interest rates again.
America’s federal budget deficit effectively doubled in the 2023 fiscal year as slumping tax receipts, rising interest rates and persistent demand for expiring pandemic relief benefits strained the nation’s finances.
