2022 In Review: What Happened?

January 18, 2023-At the risk of stating the obvious, last year was rough! 2022 was the worst year for equities since the financial crisis in 2008 as the fraying economy led to losses across the board. The S&P 500 index closed down -18.1% after trading nearly -24% lower by October. Internationally, developed markets were a bit stronger with the MSCI EAFE index trading down -14.5%. Coming off historically low levels, interest rates spiked to levels not seen in the past decade. The US 10 Year Treasury rate moved from 1.5% to 4.25% in October, eventually ending the year at 3.9%. This led the Bloomberg US Aggregate bond index to trade down -13%, by far its worst year ever.

A Mixed Month for Markets; An Uncertain Path Forward

June 6, 2022-All things considered, May was a mixed month for stocks. Markets remained relatively flat while shouldering elevated volatility and year-to-date lows. Equities rallied at the start of May, rising during what seemed to be a technical relief rally following the worst April price action in 21 years. The initial rally proved to be short lived, though, as inflation pressure and stagflation concerns dragged down stocks to new Year-to-Date (YTD) lows. Fortunately, stocks bounced off the lows in the last week of May just enough to end the month in positive territory snapping a 7-week losing streak for the S&P 500.
