Factoid of the Day Thursday, July 2, 2015
The S&P 500 posted a price-only return (not including dividends) of -0.23% in Q2’15, according to Bloomberg. That small loss ended a streak of nine consecutive quarterly gains for the index. Going back to 1928, there had only been three other instances where the S&P 500 went nine or more quarters without posting a loss, according to Bespoke Investment Group. The longest streak was 14 consecutive quarters (Q1’95-Q3’98). The four S&P 500 sectors that posted price-only gains in Q2’15 were as follows: Health Care (+2.43%); Consumer Discretionary (+1.56%); Financials (+1.23%); and Telecommunication Services (+0.35%), according to Bloomberg.
