Weekly Snippet

Last Week…

…Was another great week for the market.  As seen below, all asset are still positive YTD.

The ONLY asset class to slip slightly from the previous week was Health Care.

Did you know that out of all 24 asset classes in your portfolio, only FOUR had a positive annual return in 2018?  Health Care was one of those four so it deserves to blow off a little steam.

  • Health Care was down less than .5% from last week, but still maintains an almost 8% return YTD – nothing to scoff at huh?
  • S. Large and Mid-Cap companies showed growth outpacing Value.
  • Remember a time when poor Commodities were struggling? Well last week they gained over 1.5% from the previous week giving them a 7.4% return YTD.  Pretty impressive indeed.  How many skeptics did we have out there that thought Commodities would never come back?
  • Bonds also edged up from the previous week, but nothing more than .4%.

This bull just keeps on going! Have a great weekend!
