    Joseph Adinolfi–Marketwatch
    U.S. stocks have just accomplished something that hasn’t been done since President Richard Nixon was still occupying the White House.

    The S&P 500 SPX has risen for the 14th week out of 15 on Friday. According to Dow Jones Market Data, the last time the large-cap index recorded a comparable stretch of weekly gains was March 10, 1972. This marks the 13th time it has happened since the index’s inception in 1957.

    However, investors don’t need to look as far back to find a precedent for the magnitude of the index’s rise over this period. The S&P 500 has risen 22.1% over the past 15 weeks as of Friday’s close, the largest 15-week advance since a 22.5% gain during the period that ended Aug. 28, 2020, Dow Jones data show.

    The index closed above 5,000 for the first time on Friday, its 10th record close of the year, according to Dow Jones data.

    To be sure, the S&P 500 isn’t the only major U.S. equity index to score a historic winning streak on Friday. The Nasdaq Composite COMP also climbed for the 14th week out of 15 as well.
