Last week…


Was another mostly down week.



Continuing the trend from the previous week, we saw growth companies generally performing worse than value companies. Large Growth was down the most at nearly 3% and Mid Growth was down close to 1%.  Small Growth companies were barely up.  Mid Value and Small Value companies were up. As far as value companies, small had the most to gain and was up over1% from last week.


Global and US REITS were both down, but not much. Commodities showcased another stellar performance up over 6% from last week, not back over 30% return YTD.


Foreign equities again mirrored what we saw in the US. Foreign Growth was down more than Foreign Value.  Emerging markets continued their downward trend as well.


Bonds didn’t budge much. But we did see US Short Term and Intermediate Term Treasuries up a little along with US Short Term Corporates.


Have a great weekend!
