Last Week…


… all US Stocks continued to launch from their cratered bunkers!



And the pattern noted last week continues—with Small, Mid and Large Cap Value all trouncing their Growth counterparts.

  • Small Value nearly tripled Large Growth, blasting ahead 10.4% in just one week.


US stocks have seen the swiftest, deepest dive followed by the fastest recovery in over a hundred years!

  • Just two weeks ago US Small Value was crawling around in the rubble at -35% but as of last Friday it filled that ditch by nearly half at -20.4% YTD.
  • Large Growth, Technology and Health Care advanced further into positive territory
  • Mid-Cap Growth has joined the ranks of positive return YTD at last


Foreign stocks fared nearly as well, showing a similar pattern.

  • Value outpaced Growth
  • Small advanced over Large
  • and Emerging Markets gained within a point of Foreign Value’s 7.5% climb on the week.


US fixed income continues to perform modestly in the lower to middle single digits YTD.


Have a great weekend!
