Last week…

……was a good but mixed week for U.S. Equities..


We noted lately Large Growth and Value beginning to close the gap between their performance this year after riding teeter totter for several week.  Now, that path has merged with Growth slipping nearly 2% and Value moving up .75% bringing them both to 17.6% YTD.


All other US Equities continued climbing with Mid Cap Growth gaining .22% and Mid Value strutting a 1.3% increase.  Small Caps showed the same pattern with Value jumping 1.7% leaving Small Growth further behind with just a .6% gain.


Global Equity REITS moved ahead with Foreign REITS outdoing US REITS for a change. Commodities continued expanding by .75% bringing YTD gains to 23.4%.


Foreign Stocks all gained except for Emerging Markets with slipped more than 2.5% While Small gained 1.4% and Large caps moved up .67%


Last but not least, Bonds saw another very slight increase this week across the board. Increases for all bonds was less than 1%, but – increased nonetheless!
