Last week…


Again, as the week before, all equities – US and Foreign gained significantly.



US Growth and Value stocks both moved more in tandem this week with Mid Cap Growth streaking ahead of all others – ahead for the week by over 3.0%! Large Growth companies remain ahead of Large Value YTD. Each of the other US benchmarks were up between just under 1.5% and 2.0%


US Equity REITS surged another 3.5% on top of last week’s 4.2% while Foreign REITS increased but, at smaller pace.


Commodities took a breather from its climb, slipping 1.25%.


Foreign Growth Stocks are catching up with Value and, Emerging Markets are starting to look like they may post gains for the year – ahead last week .75%


Bonds were all slightly off except for US TIPS, barely ahead by .15%.


October may actually overcome all, if not more than September’s slide, recapturing the upward march of stocks.


Have a great week!
