These ETFs May Be the Only Bargains Left to Buy
NEW YORK (ETF Expert) -- The 30 companies that comprise the Dow Jones Industrials collectively failed to increase sales in 2013. Yet, the price of the Dow surged more than 25%. While that price appreciation for the big-time benchmark may be slowing, the Dow still managed to eclipse 17000 without generating much in the way of actual revenue growth.
Sales at S&P 500 corporations have also been unimpressive. According to Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P Capital IQ, aggregate sales per share for S&P 500 constituents registered $2.49 billion in the first quarter of 2014. Back near the last bear market's inception in Q1 of 2008? $2.65 billion.
