Common Cents

by | Apr 13, 2022 | WWC WorthWhile Reading


Last week…


The market had a rough week.


There were only two out of 24 asset classes that were up, as you can see from the second chart above: Health Care and Commodities.  And as the first chart illustrates, US Equities took quite a tumble. Growth companies were down more than Value companies.  Small companies were overall down the most, with large companies down the least and mid companies were…well, in the middle.


Foreign REITS were down more than the US REITS.  Commodities were up over 2.5%. Foreign Equities were all down as well but not as much as US Equities.


All bonds were down as well.


But for now, don’t worry about the ups and downs of your portfolio. Spend this beautiful spring holiday weekend cherishing your worthliving assets.


Have a great weekend!
