Last week…equities took another tumble!


All Equities and Alternative Investments were down from last week.  Large Caps were down the least while Small Caps were down the most. It seems the market just wiped out the gains we reported on last week in growth stocks. As you can see nicely illustrated in the above graph, Growth companies are all basically back to where they were 2 weeks ago. So, the volatility continues.


US and Global REITS also slipped with US Down close to 2% and Global over 3%. Even Commodities were down almost 1%.


Foreign Equities saw Growth decline more than Value but demonstrated the same patter of small caps down more than large.  And as uncertainty in China continues, so does the volatility with Emerging Markets.


Most bonds were down with the exception of Short-Term US Corporates and Short-Term Treasuries.


Have a great weekend!
