Market Commentary Highlights...

  • The stock market, measured by the S&P 500, has posted a high single-digit gain for the year, and the S&P 500 index is around 1,350. Sound familiar? It should. It is exactly what happened last year.
  • Last year, stocks shed their gains for the year over the weeks following the run-up into the President's Day holiday.
  • While we do not believe the S&P 500 has reached its high for the year, the index may be due for a modest pullback, driven by a combination of: stalling earnings growth, mounting fiscal headwinds, and European debt and economic concerns resurfacing.
