Common Cents

by | May 25, 2022 | WWC WorthWhile Reading


Last week…more asset classes were up from the previous week than were down.


Our funds report was rather interesting to look at last week. US Equities, with the exception of Health Care were all down while all Foreign Equity asset classes were up.


US Growth companies were down further than Value, with Large Companies generally down more than Small.


While US REITS were down, Global REITS were up. And Commodities continue to surge ahead.


Foreign Equities were all up with Value outperforming growth. Emerging Markets were even up. In fact, Emerging Markets were up the most of any asset class last week, gaining over 2.5%.
Bonds with the exception of High Yield and US TIPS were all up as well.


Have a great weekend!
