So what happened in the 3rd quarter of 2015?
Since you received your June 30th statement, stock prices in many sectors have fallen again.
Let’s quantify things….
~ During the 3rd quarter large US companies as tracked by the S&P 500 moved from a high of over 2125 to around 1870 at the low – a move of roughly 12% to the negative.
~ The 3rd quarter took large international companies in the EAFE index (Europe, Austral-Asia and Far East) down over 13%.
~ In this same three-month period small US companies as tracked by the Russell 2000 fell to as low as 1085 from a quarter high of over 1270 representing nearly a 15% decline over a less than two-month period.
~ But Emerging Markets Value companies win the race down with a drop of just over 20% in a 45-day period.
Happy investing, clients!
There is opportunity out there for great gains. I’m expecting that at least a small part of you is a little bit excited about the above news.
Think about it. And come back on Friday.
