But in the moment, would you have known rates were going to decrease? I mean they could go negative in the US which would make the 10-yr at 1.4% look great.
Can anyone ever really know anything like this in the moment in regards to the future? The best anyone can do is evaluate the info and hand and make decisions with bounded rationality.

15% at any point in history seems like a tasty tasty annual growth rate

Holy shit, talk about volatile. S&P was up about 2% at one point today then closed down 1.23%. Keep in mind that's an index, not an individual ticker. That SPY I bought yesterday was up $6-700 this morning and now it's down almost and equal amount.

As a guy who has his entire retirement in SPY, I am aware of this fact.

S&P is an index? Have I been stonking all wrong this whole time?

His point is what, that SPY is a less useful referent for the broader market than it was in 2018?
I saw a few quote tweets on this and it was a misleading tweet. The 486 stocks was not just in the S&P universe but on stocks above $5. There were also mentions of market size as well which has increased quite a bit.

The only thing I do know is don't miss earnings in this environment or you get axed. Hell even making earnings estimates can hit your stock price.
