Last Week…


…Most things were up



In US stocks, everything was up but Healthcare

  • Looks like the heavy lifters took a short breather to let the laggers step in and take up some slack
  • Small and Large Value were up the least +0.26% and +0.29%
  • Large, Mid and Small Growth were up +2.59%, +2.63% and +2.35%


In real-estate, US REITS stepped over the 10% mark YTD!


  • Foreign Growth followed suit with US, beating Foreign Value 1.3% to -0.31%
  • AND Emerging Markets got ahead 2.43%


Bonds are beyond bewildered and beginning to be battered…

  • High Yield and Emerging Markets Bonds gained +0.45% and +0.25%
  • Short Term Corporate stayed ahead just barely 0.05% YTD
  • All others slipped further by less than -1%


Have a great weekend!
