…remarkable validating patterns continued!



All US Value was up – from Small companies to Large! While all US Growth – from Small to Large and Technology were down.

  • Small Value is now within a whisper of Small Growth YTD: 13.39% & 13.67%
    • Small Value has closed a 35% gap in < 8 weeks – from the end of 2020 to last Friday.
  • Mid Growth and Mid Value have also closed a huge gap since year’s end. That small spread is now just 10.50% to 8.58% respectively YTD


  • Both US and Foreign REITS are down again (-0.90% & -0.61%), but still positive YTD!

All Foreign Equities went down

  • Emerging Markets were down the least -0.59%
  • Followed by Value and Growth (-0.67% & -1.29%)

Bonds continued their boring bubbling and – all negative except for Short Term Corporate – which just broke even.
