Do you really understand America’s favorite investment? 

America’s favorite investment – The S&P 500 index fund – does NOT help you own an even assortment of iconic U.S. companies like Starbucks, Fed Ex, Disney, and Pfizer.

Meanwhile, beloved brands like Ford, Target, and Chipotle are barely represented.
