Last Week…


… was down amid a bounce back for Large Growth and Tech Stocks.



Many US Equities fell quite a bit

  • Small Cap Value fell just under -4%
  • Technology and Large Cap Growth, on the other hand, laughed at the other stocks picking up 3.2% and 1.92% respectively


Commodities tanked again, but Foreign stocks did even worse…

  • All were down around -4% with some down almost -4.5% YTD


Bonds moved away from bubbling and took a bit of dip with High Yield, Foreign and Emerging Markets all slumping the most

  • TIPS were only slightly down -0.14%
  • Both Short and Intermediate Term Treasurys were spared, rising slightly


What caused all this craziness? Well, the Federal Reserve announced they will be taking no action until inflation hits a certain rate. The stimulus bill continues to drift in limbo. And there appears to be growing concern over virus resurgence in Europe.


Have a great weekend!
