Weekly Snippet

Last Week…

The graph remains the same – with all but 3 asset classes up YTD.

As far as week to week changes go, it was relatively boring – when was the last time we could say that?  If you watched the market day to day it was up one, down the next, then up again but without the drama we have been jolted by lately.

In U.S. equities:

  • Large growth showed no change
  • Tech was up the most 0.81%
  • Health Care was down the most – 1.25%
  • Other U.S. Equities  moved up about 0.5% and less

The largest overall gain was in Global Real Estate – up 1.82% from last week, while US Real Estate was up 1.49%

Foreign equities were up anywhere from nearly 0.50 – 1.10%.  BUT Emerging Markets were up 1.5% from last week with a YTD return of 6.94% .

Bonds barely simmered.  But it is noteworthy that Emerging market bonds are up 4.17% YTD whereas they were down 5.33% at the end of 2018.

Have a great weekend!
