Weekly Snippet

Last Week…

…Was the 10th birthday for this bull market. Happy birthday Bull!

As you can see all 24 benchmarks are still up and strong.

Interestingly, all Equity benchmarks are ahead significantly YTD with US stocks nearly doubling Foreign including Emerging Markets.

  • Leading the pack in US is Small Growth up 19.6%.
  • Also interestingly, last week in US stocks both Mid and Small Caps split direction with Growth moving up while Value dipped a bit.
  • Year to Date, Value is still running close behind their Growth cousins for a strong come back from 2018’s dramatic year end correction.

We expect continued volatility with prospects for a strong year still in view.
