Second Quarter Market Review

by on Jul 5, 2017 Categories: us stock market, us economy, quarterly review

Q2 records another solid performance for the major asset classes – stocks, bonds and real estate all rewarded investors to close the first half of 2017. The S&P is up over 9% for the year while the Aggregate Bond Index is up 2.41% and Dow Jones US Real Estate Index up 5.62%.

The economy is presenting mixed signals, but the overriding expectation is stable growth will continue throughout the remainder of the year at a long term rate around 2%.
