Last Week…


…all that was the highest, dropped the most



All US equities, except Health Care, went down

  • Small Caps fell the most
    • with Value down -2.93%
    • and Growth -2.55%
  • However, Small Value still maintains the YTD highest return with over 24%!


YTD, US Large Growth remains the only asset class in the negative, but they are just moving over to give Small Caps their time in the spotlight. If you remember last year, it was small companies that took the biggest hit of the downturn. US Large Growth ended the year with over a 39% return, only out performed by Tech at 47.32%. Small Value ended down over 6%. Isn’t it nice to see Large Companies sharing the stage?

  • Foreign companies, with the exception of Emerging Markets, went up.
  • Again, with only Foreign Growth remaining negative YTD.


Bonds are now battered and bruised.


Have a great weekend!
