The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY has generated a total return of 26.4% year-to-date, but much of those overall gains have been driven by a handful of megacap stocks. In fact, 65 stocks in the S&P 500 are currently in the red year-to-date in 2021.

When a stock struggles in a bull market, it’s often an indication that there’s something fundamentally wrong with the underlying company’s business. However, sometimes market technicals, cyclicality, investor sentiment or even a healthy valuation reset can trigger temporary underperformance in high-quality stocks.

This time of year, it may feel like you’ve missed out on big rallies in the best stocks. But, there may still be a chance to buy some high-quality stocks for 2022 at a discount to what you would have paid a year ago.

But there’s a big difference between buying the dip in a quality stock and trying to catch a falling knife.
