Last Week…


… it seemed our upward spike was short lived.



Although it fell over 1.5% it’s important to note that Technology is still positive YTD at 12.65%!

The same cannot be said for most other US Equities:

  • Large, Mid and Small Cap Value all moved together, with each dropping 3.4-3.9%
  • Likewise Large, Mid and Small Cap Growth moved similarly with each falling between 2.17-2.34%
  • REITS also retreated 3.53%


Foreign Stocks were down as well, although not as significantly.


The only benchmarks that saw a little gain were… BONDS. Up but barely budging.

  • Foreign Bonds +0.21%
  • Short Term Treasuries +0.05%
  • Short Term Corporate Bonds +0.07%
  • Intermediate Term Treasuries +0.17%
  • And TIPS +0.59%


Have a wonderful and safe Independence Day!
