As the market opened today, the "Fab Five" tech stocks were all at or near all-time highs. That's Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB), Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL). We can also throw in Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) for good measure, which opened the day at $338 per share and a $57.75 billion market cap.
The Fab Five alone have accounted for 40% of the S&P 500's market cap gains in 2017. Now the question on investors' minds is whether one of these stocks could be valued at $1 trillion in the near future. Apple is now valued at over $800 billion – more than the GDP of Switzerland. Alphabet is up to $680 billion, and the other tech giants aren't far behind.
That could evoke memories of the dot-com bubble of the late 1990s. But Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald says it's very, very different. Find out why Keith thinks this is the "finest example of capitalism most people are going to see in a generation."
Editor's Note: "Must-have" companies backed by Unstoppable Trends are a cornerstone of Keith's wealth-building strategy. But there's another type of investment he wants Money Morning Members to know about. It's one of his favorites, a kind of "desert island fund" he'd buy if he had to park his money in one place, "retire" from civilization for 20 years, and come back to a pile of money.
