Investors should eye emerging markets and small caps outside of the ‘Magnificent 7’ stocks, Richard Bernstein says

Investors should turn their attention to alternative investments including small caps and emerging markets outside of the “Magnificent 7” stocks, according to Richard Bernstein Advisors chief Richard Bernstein.

“There’s no sound wealth building strategy that says put all of your eggs in seven stocks, there has to be some opportunities outside the U.S. and in some smaller cap stocks,” Bernstein told CNBC’s “Power Lunch” on Tuesday.

“It’s such an amazing bearish view of the world to say there’s only seven companies we can invest in,” he added.

Small-cap Russell 2000 notches four-day win streak

The Russell 2000 captured its fourth consecutive winning day in what had been a very tepid session for the major averages.

The small-cap index advanced more than 1% on Tuesday, outpacing the S&P 500‘s roughly 0.2% gain and the Nasdaq Composite‘s nearly 0.4% jump.

The last time the Russell 2000 notched four straight winning sessions was in late December 2023.

Though the small-cap index has been having a strong month – up 5.6% in February – it remains sharply behind the three major averages on the year. In 2024, the Russell 2000 is up only 1.4%, while the S&P 500 has already gained nearly 6.5%.
