Which one happens first? Dow 20,000 or S&P 2,000?
Today's a day for the record books.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the 16,000 line for the first time ever. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 also broke above 1,800 for the first time in its history.
Both indices have had incredible runs so far this year. The Dow is up almost 22% while the S&P 500 is up about 26%.
What's more, they're both inching closer to their next big round number: 20,000 for the Dow (25.2% more) and 2,000 for the S&P 500 (11.6% more). While it seems obvious that S&P 500 has little more to go to reach its round number, could the Dow's 30 stocks outperform the S&P 500?
CNBC contributor Gina Sanchez, founder of Chantico Global, thinks it’s the S&P 500 that will reach its round number first – but not just because it has a shorter distance to go.
