Common Cents

by | Aug 13, 2021 | WWC WorthWhile Reading

Last week…

…was an all-around good week for the market.

All US Equities were up. Tech was up the most, over 1.5%.  Large growth and value saw almost the same amount of week-to-week growth while value out performed growth in Small and Mid-companies.  Year to date returns for all US Equities except Small Growth and Mid Growth are in the double digits.


US REITS continues to inch up. With the housing market as hot as it has been in 2021, it should come as no surprise that US REITS have moved their way to first place for YTD returns, coming in at over 27%.


Commodities slipped down just a bit but is still holding strong to over 20% return YTD.  Foreign Equities were up all over 1%, except for Small Caps which was only up .62%.


Bad boy bonds are still looking battered. Only Emerging Market Bonds moved up while the rest fell ever so slightly.


Have a great weekend!
