  • As the stock market hits record highs, some investors are concerned about a bubble.

  • High valuations and an AI-hype cycle are the top concerns for bearish investors.

  • From AI to chicken wings, listed below are the 10 most richly valued stocks in the market right now.


Record highs in the stock market and growing hype around artificial intelligence are leading some investors to worry about a potential bubble.

Valuations are stretched, crypto is booming, and to some investors, it feels like the more than 25% gain in the S&P 500 since late October is too far too fast.

Economist David Rosenberg highlighted three glaring divergences in the stock market earlier this month that suggest a downturn is inevitable, and Warren Buffett's favorite valuation signal is nearing records, suggesting that stocks are richly valued.

When looking at individual stocks, it's not only AI stocks that are surging higher. Everything from chicken wing restaurants to biotech companies are hitting valuations that look unsustainable in the long-term.

These are the 10 most richly valued stocks in the market right now that have a market valuation of at least $10 billion, based on their price-to-sales ratio.
