Last Week…


… saw a recurring pattern.



As seen earlier this fall, Mid and Small Value saw some progress, while all Growth took a step back

  • Small Cap Value +1.15% and Mid Cap Value +1.97%
  • Large Cap Growth -1.21%, Mid Cap Growth -0.88% and Small Cap Growth -0.77%
  • This is a real time zig-zag pattern indicating true diversity in your portfolio and exactly what you want to see!


This trend is also show up in Foreign stocks

  • Foreign Growth -0.67%
  • Foreign Value +0.75%


Bonds continued their blithely bubbling ways…

  • Emerging Market Bonds had the toughest time -1.08%
  • All others saw changes of less than 0.5% in either direction


The overarching theme seems to be disorganized. Congress does not give the impression that any Covid relief or Unemployment extension will get through before the election is complete. The discontentment continues overseas, as many counties are putting new lockdowns in place to help combat the virus. The silver lining is that this is a season and a cycle. There will be ‘contentment’ and optimism again and the turn may come on more quickly than we can imagine.


Have a great weekend!
