Common Cents

Last week…


We endured more market volatility.





US Equities were all down, with growth down further than value. Growth companies are well past correction territory and are approaching bear market territory.


Last week, Global REITS while US REITS were down.


Foreign Equities did much better last week than they had the week before that. Foreign Value and Small Caps were both up from the previous week, but still maintain a negative YTD return.


Commodities were slightly down as well as Emerging Markets.


And as for Bonds, only TIPS were up from last week.  This forward momentum pulled TIPS from red to black yielding the only positive YTD return for bonds.


Have a great weekend!
