Weekly Snippet

Last Week…

It was a mixed week for the Market!

The Dow fell into the negative, while the S&P 500 is barely hanging in the positive YTD.

In US Equities Our funds report is beginning to resemble a checkerboard with all the red and black YTD returns:

  • Large Growth: 2.94% YTD
  • Large Value: -1.69% YTD
  • Mid Growth: 1.11% YTD
  • Mid Value: -1.24% YTD
  • Small Growth: 2.15% YTD
  • Small Value: -1.45% YTD

  • US REITS hurtled ahead 2.7% last week trimming its slide to less the -6.0% YTD!
  • Commodities are positive for the year – and this begins its 3rd year streak of positive returns!
  • Foreign Equities were all down from the previous week, but unlike the US checkerboard, are all positive YTD.

  • All bonds are currently negative YTD, except Global bonds which happily remain positive this year.

Overall there’s a lot of bubbly activity, you just need a microscope to see it!

Have a great weekend!
