Bulls are back in the market, with S&P 500 Index rising 20% from the lows seen in October last year. The rally came on the back of an astonishing surge in mega-cap tech stocks fueled by the artificial intelligence (AI) boom and higher appeal for the safe value stocks.  

In particular, the rally is concentrated in just a handful of companies, including Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Nvidia (NVDA), Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), Meta Platforms (META), and Tesla (TSLA). As such, the top ETF performers are from the tech sector and dominating the new bull market over the past six months. These are Valkyrie Bitcoin Miners ETF (WGMI - Free Report), VanEck Vectors Digital Transformation ETF (DAPP - Free Report), Bitwise Crypto Industry Innovators ETF (BITQ - Free Report), Global X Blockchain ETF (BKCH - Free Report) and MicroSectors FANG+ ETN (FNGS - Free Report).

Inside the New Bull Trend 

The AI mania has accelerated into the summer months, pushing key stocks like Nvidia (NVDA) and Microsoft (MSFT) higher. In fact, Nvidia joined the trillion-dollar market capitalization club last month and became the first chipmaker ever to hit the trillion level.

The technology sector was powered by investors’ flight to mega-cap, cash-rich technology stocks amid the regional bank crisis and the rising risk of a recession. The mega-cap tech stocks have strong balance sheet, durable revenue streams and robust profit margins and are, thus, better positioned to withstand a possible economic downturn.

The slowdown in inflation has spurred expectations of easier monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, thereby bolstering the appeal for riskier assets. According to CMEGroup's Fedwatch tool, markets are pricing in a 65% chance that the Fed will pause its historic interest rate hiking campaign in the June meeting. Further, corporate America’s shift of focus to structural benefits and an improving earnings picture have added to the strength.
