Weekly Snippet

Last Week…

… Was a drab week for the market. All U.S. Equities were down from the previous week.

  • Technology was down the most 2.43% and Small Value was down the least 0.64%.
  • With exception of Small Value, all U.S. Equities remain positive YTD with Health Care soaring above the rest at 13.09% YTD return.
  • REITS and Commodities showed growth over the previous week gaining 0.71% and 1.22% respectively, while Global REITS slipped 0.57%
  • Foreign Markets slipped anywhere between 1.13% – 2.76%.
  • BUT Emerging Markets inched up 0.9% from the previous week.

Bond are still percolating but without much heat.

  • All fixed income asset classes with exception of Emerging Market Bonds and one index we follow for High Yield Bonds were up from the previous week.
  • The biggest gain? A whopping 0.68% for U.S. Treasury TIPS.

Let’s ride out this volatility and worry less about what’s bubbling in your portfolios and more about what’s going to be boiling in your oven this Thursday – Happy Thanksgiving!
