People own a handful of gigantic companies and think their portfolio is bulletproof, but it's not, especially over a long period of time like we hope your retirement will be. Some clients gravitate towards bigger S&P 500 companies, assuming that they will remain stable for years to come. While these companies may appear to have a bright future, it is not always the best bet in the long run.


Just like a company’s success can change over the years, so can sports teams. In honor of baseball season starting up, we’ll compare World Series champions from each decade and big companies in the S&P 500 and take a look at how they have changed in this episode. 


In this episode, we’ll share:


  • Today’s worst baseball franchises. (4:17)
  •  The ten largest companies in 1980, 2000, and 2020. (12:29)
  • General Electric, Exxon, and other companies’ changes over the years. (16:40)
