By Derek Moore

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. Finally, they discuss the LEI Leading Economic Indicator declining for 13 straight months without a “declared” recession yet.
