Common Cents

Last week…was the first full week in the 2022 market, and it was a little choppy.  Since this was the first week of 2022, there will be no graph until we get a few more weeks under our belts.


US Equities were mixed, with Value taking the early lead this year. Growth companies were all down, with Mid Growth down the most.  Small Value were up the most.


US REITS were down over 4% while Global was down a bit over 2%. Commodities had a positive start up over 2%.


Foreign Equities displayed the same behavior as the US, with growth down and value up.  Our best performing asset class is Foreign Value, up over 2.5%.


Bonds all started the year off in red, down anywhere from .19% to nearly 2.5%.



Have a great weekend!
