Weekly market wrap

Stocks largely ran in place last week, with the S&P 500 edging out a slight gain. A slightly wider aperture reveals that equities are up 6% so far this year, while the one-year figure is still the show-stopper, with the S&P 500 gaining more than 75% since its March 23, 2020 low.1  Each of these periods are part of the new bull market that began almost exactly one year ago as stocks bottomed following the sharpest 30% bear market in history1. At the same time, each of these periods highlight the progress occurring in the investment environment – progress that we think will produce a favorable but different path ahead.
