2020 Annual Market Review

By January 13, 2021August 11th, 2021No Comments

For the full year 2020, US stocks outperformed international stocks, and large company stocks outperformed small company stocks. The same trend was true for entirety of the decade 2010 – 2020. Keep in mind that these trends are not guaranteed to continue. Trends can reverse themselves when it is least expected. The 1990’s were a strong decade for large company US stocks, and this was followed by the the decade 2000 to 2010 that saw large company US stock with negative performance. This is why it is critical to remain diversified and avoid chasing or concentrating in popular subsets of the global markets simply because they have done well recently.
