Morning Commentary

Buyers continue to emerge even, as the narrative is the market is going down.  The S&P 500 came off of its best week in a month.

We saw a broad-based rally on Friday led by Technology, Consumer Discretionary & Communication Services. For the year, Utilities continue to struggle, while Consumer Staples are almost muted.


Growth outperformed value for more than a decade going into 2022, when value finally leaped and crushed it.  Interestingly, value has a significant lead over growth going back fifty years, but that changed in the era of mega- cap stocks. 

The experts told us mega- cap names would never rule again, but that has not been the case this year. 


Big box retailers may have run out of room to keep raising prices, and drug markets took a shot at finishing lower on the week.

Meanwhile, the Volatility Index (VIX) fell below support this week, there isn’t a lot of genuine fear out there.
