Common Cents

Last week…


The markets were mixed but overall equities performed well.



In US Equities growth outperformed value across the board. Growth companies were all up from the previous week while value was down. As the first chart illustrates, Large, Mid and Small Growth companies are all tracking pretty close YTD.  The same can be seen with Large, Mid and Small Value. AND we are slowing regaining ground and approaching a positive YTD return. Look how far we’ve come in just 4 weeks!


US REITS continues to make strides gaining nearly 4% from the previous week.  Another week like last and we’ll be out of the red. Global REITS were also up but not as much.


Commodities were down over 6%.  Foreign Equities were all up as well as Emerging Markets.


Bonds continue to be boring and probably will for a while as investors watch the Fed raise rates.



Have a great weekend!
