The Nasdaq Divided by the S&P 500

With the Nasdaq Composite closing in on a record, I thought it would be a good time to look at how the Nasdaq has performed relative to the S&P 500. The graph below is the Nasdaq divided by the S&P 500.


What catches my attention is how absurd the Nasdaq was in 2000. That line is a complete outlier. While the Nasdaq has outpaced the S&P 500 over the last few years, it’s nothing like it was 15 years ago.
