Last Week…


…Just about everything came up



In US stocks, everything was up

  • EXCEPT Small Caps, which broke the trend this week. They lost ground for a change with Growth down 0.05% and Value down 0.03% – Gasp!
  • Large and Mid Caps were all up from a range of 1.05% to 4.74%
  • Value outperformed Growth in Mid Cap stocks, but not Large Cap


In Foreign stocks, everything was up but Emerging Markets

  • Growth outperformed Value in this case: +2.25% and +1.49%


BOOM! All bonds barely bounced…

  • Only High Yield Corporate and Short Term Corporate are above water YTD (+1.57% and +0.11%)
  • All the rest are in the negative from a range of -1.43% to -6.47% YTD


Have a great weekend!
