Market Report
Stock investors reversed course from the prior quarter, resulting in gains of 5% in broad
measures of the US stock market. Volatility returned, however, as worries about declining oil
prices and global economic growth made investors nervous. For the year, the stock market
achieved double-digit gains for the third straight year. The Russell 3000 index, a broad index,
gained 12.6% for 2014.
As shown below, small capitalization stocks out-performed large capan abrupt change
from prior quarters. For the year, gains in large cap stocks exceeded small by over 800 basis
points. International stocks continued under pressure, with losses of nearly 4% for the quarter
and the year.
In a surprise for most investors, bond performance in the quarter was strong, with interest
rates generally declining across the maturity spectrum. The performance of US Treasuries was
particularly strong. Overall, the bond market gained almost 2% for the quarter and 6% for the
year.
