Last Week…


…things were looking up!




US Small Cap Value was up most. The differences in gain between Small and Mid Cap gains was meager – seems to be closing in.

  • Small Cap and Mid Cap Growth: +2.76% & +3.25%
  • Small Cap and Mid Cap Value: +3.51% & +2.77%


Commodities are now doing quite well.

  • Both Foreign and US REITS are above ground now and positive YTD
    • +1.67% and +4.79% respectively
  • Foreign Value is still ahead of Growth ( +3.44% and +3.32%)
    • In fact, Small Cap is still ahead of all except Emerging Markets – which closed at 11.47% YTD


Boring Bonds were “knicked” again, but Corporate bonds trickled up in value.


Have a great weekend!
