Common Cents

Last week…


…most US Equities were back up.



Yet again, Value companies outperformed growth companies in the US. Small Value companies were up the most, followed by mid value then large value. Year-to-date Small Value is still the leader with over a 23% return.  Looking at the 15-year annualized trailing return for value companies, we have the following:


  • Large Value – 7.96%
  • Mid Value – 9.01%
  • Small Value 7.9%


Perhaps it is just time for value to shine to pull up those 15-year returns?


REITS, both US and Foreign continue to let off some steam while Commodities continues to GAIN steam. Commodities is only a hair behind Technology with respective YTD returns of 26.86% & 26.85%


Foreign Equities slipped slightly along with Emerging Markets.


For the first time in a few weeks, High Yield Bonds slipped just a little. All other bonds were down as well, but as usual…not much!


Have a great weekend!
