Common Cents

Last week…yielded the best report we have seen in quite some time.


Prior to last week’s closing, the S&P faced the most consecutive DOWN closing weeks in over 20 years.  Last week closed out the best performing week since November of 2020.  Of course, we have quite the road of recovery ahead, if we indeed scrapped the bottom and are beginning our bounce back up.


US Equities bounced back the most with value overall outperforming growth with small companies performing better than large. Small Value was up the most of any asset class, over 6% from last week.  Large Growth outperformed Mid and Small Growth.


US RETIS were up almost 5% with Global RETIS up over 2.5%.  Commodities continued to climb higher, now with over 35% return YTD.


Foreign Equities were up over 4% with exception of Small Caps which were up nearly 3.5%.  Even Emerging Markets nudged up over 2.5%.


Bonds also nudged up a bit.  High Yield bonds were up nearly 3% and Emerging Market Bonds were up over 2%. Overall, a great week for the market!



Have a great weekend!
