Large- and mid-cap growth stocks were the strongest performers, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq benchmarks recording their best year since 2013. U.S. shares outpaced their global counterparts, although most non-U.S. indexes also finished with solid double-digit gains.

Technology shares performed best within the S&P 500, helped by strong gains from industry giants Apple and Microsoft, and financial stocks also outperformed the broader market. Fixed income securities produced solid gains during the period as

Buy recommendations seem unwarranted

Shares of chip developer and manufacturer Qualcomm (QCOM) reached decade highs after the company reported its fiscal year 2019 results. Despite a good amount of shipment reduction on its chips, Qualcomm beat Wall Street earnings expectations, so the stock has soared to new heights as a result.
