Derek Moore and ZEGA Financial CEO Jay Pestrichelli do it again. That’s right they talk about AI but this time around how it may be driving Mega Cap Tech performance relative to the rest of the market. Plus, the weight of the top 2 S&P 500 companies is the highest since 1978 and the top 10 companies weighting is now 30%. They debate whether this is nothing or something.
