Common Cents

Last week…equities all gave back some gains from the week before!

Repeating a familiar pattern, Growth gave up from twice to three times as much as Value in US Stocks. US Large Stocks were mixed in that Growth (and Technology) gave back little more than a third of the week before surge while Value gained much less to give back and did so.


All US Value remains in far better shape than Growth from Large to Small caps.


Both US REITS and Foreign REITS were down.


Commodities have now slipped to half the benchmark’s earlier peak of 30+% – good for our gas tanks if it continues.


While Foreign equities continue to look a lot like US stocks with Value far ahead, Foreign Growth has been closing the gap a bit and Emerging Markets took a 3.0% hit.


Bonds were mixed but, all US fixed income edged ahead with Foreign and Emerging Market Bonds eroding further. US Treasury TIPS moved up the most, nearly 1.0%




Have a great weekend!
