It may not feel like it but we’re finally six months into 2020. And the first half was a roller coaster…
The S&P 500 offers a snapshot of how wild that ride was so far. It reached a high of 3,386.15 on February 19th up 4.8% in less than two months. Then the next month, it fell to 2,237.40 on March 23rd down 30.7%. And finally, it rose to 3,100.29, down just 4.0% year-to-date (not including dividends).
Roughly a quarter or 136 of the S&P 500 stocks are positive year-to-date, not including dividends. That puts the median return at -12.6% — the average S&P 500 stock has performed worse than the index.
I’ll hold off on further commentary until the next post and after I update all the asset class tables with YTD returns throughout the day.
