The top five stocks have boosted the S&P 500 Index

Only a little over three years back, these top five companies had a cumulative market cap of $1.5 trillion. These stocks have been the major driver behind the gains in the S&P 500 Index (SPY), as these companies make up close to 15% of the S&P 500 Index and a whopping 42.5% of the NASDAQ Composite Index.

These stocks have been the main factors behind the tech rally this year and since the financial crisis. Recently, the S&P 500 Information Technology Index finally breached the levels it had seen during the dot-com bubble after 17 years. While the S&P 500 Index has soared 200% since the crisis, the S&P 500 Information Technology Index has gained a whopping ~400% in that period.
