Last Week…

…As suspected the “shift of momentum” last week from value to growth was a pause and a brief one at that as value once again trounced growth in the U.S.



  • Large Value +1% vs. Large Growth +.15%
  • Mid Value +1% vs. Mid Growth -.4%
  • Small Value +1.43% vs. Small Growth +.27%


U.S REITS were up over 3%, with YTD return of 21.38%. Global REITS were also up from the previous week 1.2% with YTD returns of 11.3%.


And wow, we haven’t mentioned Commodities in a while, but they were up 2.4% and have a year to date return of 21.3%.  We were excited to see Commodities hit double digits, but now look at them go!


Foreign equities behaved much the same as U.S. with value besting growth.


And boring bonds remain beleaguered but not bombed!


Have a great weekend!
