In this episode of DecisionPoint, Carl and Erin's topic of the day was bankruptcy and the S&P 500. They discuss the difference between Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 bankruptcies and how that could affect the make up of the S&P 500. They discussed the weighting of the SPX and how the equal-weight ETF stacks up. They also reviewed all of the FAANG+ stocks for clues to find future strength or weakness of the SPX.
