Join the Wall Street Rally in 2022 With These ETFs


The year 2021 ended with investors cheering the stupendous Wall Street rally in the year. Though volatile, the market ended the last month of 2021 in the green, registering the fifth consecutive monthly rise for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and six-month winning streak for the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index.

Going on, the S&P 500 index jumped 26.9% in 2021, highlighting the benchmark’s third consecutive positive year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite index also gained 18.7% and 21.4% for 2021, respectively. Notably, Devon Energy (DVN) stood out as the top-performing stock on the S&P 500 in 2021, with a 178.6% rise. The stock was followed by a more than 140% rise in Marathon Oil (MRO) and Moderna (MRNA) last year. Ford also clinched a spot among the S&P 500′s best performers in 2021, jumping 136.3% for its biggest annual increase since 2009.

Dow Jones Industrial Average saw stellar performances from The Home Depot, Inc. (HD) and Microsoft (MSFT) that returned more than 50% in 2021. Meanwhile, major tech players like Alphabet (GOOG), Apple (AAPL), Meta Platforms (FB) and Tesla contributed to the rally in Nasdaq Composite in 2021.

We have stepped into 2022 with a set of concerning issues like the Omicron variant-related uncertainty and the chances of the Federal Reserve hiking rates multiple times this year to tackle the rising inflation levels. However, the accelerated levels of the coronavirus vaccine rollout and strongly rebounding U.S. economy from the pandemic-led slowdown should support the market sentiments.
