Weekly Snippet

Last Week…

… Was another good week for the markets.

US equities were up from the previous week, with growth companies soaring significantly further than value.  Some bullish behavior maybe?

  • US healthcare recovered 4 of the 5 points it gave up from the week before last.
  • Technology was up 2.5% for a total YTD return of nearly 30%.

WOW!  For other US equities, value companies are all up around 15% YTD,  while growth companies are all up over 20% YTD.

  • US and foreign real estate were up more than 1%, while commodities fell more than 1%.
  • Foreign equities were mostly down, but not significantly.
  • Foreign equities are all in the lower to mid-double digits YTD.

And bonds are bonds – still bubbling, but still generally ahead of all last year.

Have a great weekend!
