Just 14 stocks have created 20% of all stock market gains in dollars since 1924.

In what truly is one of the most amazing statistics to ever come across our desks here at 24/7 Wall St., we recently saw a chart that showed that just 14 stocks have created 20% of all stock market gains in dollars since 1924. That is a phenomenal figure, considering the sheer number of companies that have come and gone in that time, and the overall wealth created in the stock market in the past 93 years.

The chart, which was sourced from Bloomberg/Henrik Bessembinder through a Jefferies research piece, contains many companies that have been around for years, but also sports four tech companies, albeit one has been around since 1911.

In a remarkable and striking similarity, all the companies on the list are still incredibly relevant and are still outstanding investment ideas, depending on your risk tolerance.

Here are the 14 stocks that have created 20% of all the stock market gains since 1924. They are listed from the largest to the smallest in term of percentage of wealth creation, and we also included when they were started.

You can read the rest at:


The top 14 are:

1. Exxon Mobil Corp
2. Apple Inc
3. General Electric Co.
4. Microsoft Corp.
5. International Business Machines Corp.
6. Altria Inc.
7. General Motors Co.
8. Johnson & Johnson
9. Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
10. Procter & Gamble Co.
11. Chevron Inc.
12. Coca-Cola Co.
13. AT&T Inc.
14. Amazon.com Inc.

Don't let the most outrageous...

Presidential orders make us forget that among the Muslim ban, Trump is also signing orders that are decimating our economy and environment.

Was it me, or did Trump look pissed...

That Neil Gorsuch didn't praise Trump in his acceptance speech. If you watched Trump, every time Gorsuch mentioned another successful person, Trump looked like he was punched in the gut.

Anyone out there have a good home made buffalo sauce?

The super bowl is coming up this weekend, and I want to make the wings completely home made. But, I just cannot get the hotwing sauce right. Does anyone out there have any buffalo sauce recipes that you would like to share?

Thanks in advance!

Denver police to protesters: Stop doing anything that could be construed as free speech

Source: Rawstory

Protesters at the Denver airport over the weekend were told by police that it was illegal to exercise free speech without a permit.

Denverite reported that over 200 people gathered at the Denver International Airport on Friday to protest President Donald Trumps executive order banning travel from seven majority-Muslim countries.

In video posted to YouTube, Police Commander Tony Lopez can be seen advising demonstrators that they are in violation of the law.

Stop doing anything that could be construed as free speech without a permit, he explains.

That is not how the First Amendment works at all...

My question about the press conference is:

Trump is going to be president in just over a week, he could not prepare well enough to outline what is being said by his lawyer? He is so incompetent. I have no idea how he is going to handle the complex job as the president.

I just had a very disturbing thought...

Trump's current 'meltdowns' may just be an attempt to satiate the news cycle with his name in an attempt to minimize any coverage of Hillary. The more absurd things Trump says, the more likely the MSM media is likely to run whatever offensive or dumb thing he says all the while taking time away from Hillary and her policies.

The Clinton campaign needs to get in front of this ASAP with Kahn like attacks that get under his skin or we are lost. We cannot just assume the low information voters knows how awful Trump is if all they hear and see is about Trump.

Remember no publicity is bad publicity.

Oh no.

Wikileaks just released the Russian hacked and stolen emails from the DNC. Good thing this is a Friday, and probably will be swept under the rug -- but this could be bad.

I am not linking to the emails for obvious reasons.

Proof that the RNC is run by Lizard People...

Look at this woman's space glasses I caught during the roll call:

Please note this is meant tongue in cheek because of the crazy looking glasses.
