First Decline Since Election Doesn’t Deter Investors
The S&P 500 Stock Index lost about 1% last week, its first decline since the election. Rising oil prices helped the energy sector but dampened enthusiasm elsewhere, particularly technology stocks. One encouraging bit of news was the November jobs report that showed unemployment falling to its lowest level in nine years.
Despite last week’s weakness, investors are still buoyed by the specter of a new administration that will provide fiscal stimulus and reduced regulation. On the other hand, if the upward trend in interest rates continues, stocks are likely to continue to suffer.
