In this blog, we consider how investors can take exposure to property as an asset class by investing in either open-ended or closed-end funds. It is likely that physically-owned property is one of the biggest single investments that many investors will make, indeed there are some who will have additional exposure through the ownership of rental properties and/or second homes. We are not going to look at direct property purchases, which typically involves taking on some form of borrowing via a mortgage, possibly the most common way individuals make use of leverage in their lives.

In this blog, we look at gold and how investors can access it through Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs) to include in their investment portfolios. The reason why gold holds appeal for investors is that is a store of value that can provide protection both against inflation and also as a diversifier in a portfolio made up of equities and bonds. In an environment when inflation has been at historically low levels, it is generally for this latter reason that investors will look to include gold in a portfolio.

U.S. stock markets moved higher once again last week with both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Indexes again reaching record highs. Stock markets were buoyed by increasing expectations of passage of a $1.9 trillion stimulus package, strong corporate earnings reports, a rallying energy sector propelled by higher oil prices and positive news regarding vaccine availability. Fed Chairman Powell’s comments on Wednesday stating the economy was still struggling and in need of more than accomodative monetary policy helped weaken the U.S. dollar and push 10-year U.S. Treasury rates higher. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index increased 1.2% to 3,934.83, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.7% to 14,095.47, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 4bps to 1.21% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.6%.

U.S. stock markets moved higher last week with both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Indexes reaching new record highs. Steps taken by the Democratic controlled House and Senate set the stage for passage of a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package were the primary reasons for last week’s gains. Strong earnings reports in tech and energy and material stocks and a slightly better than-expected employment situation report also helped move stock markets higher. Increased expectations of the passage of the $1.9 trillion stimulus package also acted to move 10-year Treasury rates higher and helped subdue the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index increased 4.7% to 3,886.83, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 6.0% to 13,856.30, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 11bps to 1.17% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.5%

U.S. stock markets were higher last week with stock prices supported by strong economic reports and hopes of additional stimulus spending. Slightly lower-than-expected jobless claims, a strongerthan-expected PMI Composite Flash Index release and much better-than-expected housing starts and permits and existing home sales combined with Janet Yellen’s call for additional, larger stimulus spending and President Biden’s announcement of a $1.9 trillion stimulus package helped move stock prices higher through most of the week. The Nasdaq Composite Index closed the week at a record high elevated by strong performance by Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Netflix while the S&P 500 Index, hurt by poor IBM and Intel earnings reports, closed just off its record high set Thursday. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index increased 2.0% to 3,841.47, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 4.2% to 13,543.06, the 10-year U.S. Treasury was unchanged at 1.09% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.6%.

Finishing lower on the week, U.S. stock markets were pressured by weaker-than-expected economic numbers and perhaps concerns of lofty valuations and rising interest rates. Larger-than-expected jobless claims and an unexpected decline in retail sales combined with disappointing bank earnings reports and weak tech stock performance set the stage for weaker stock markets. President-elect Biden’s stimulus plan announcement late Thursday failed to support stock prices with the news seemingly already priced in. Though 10-year U.S. Treasury rates were slightly lower on the week, they maintained levels greater than 1%, perhaps indicating continued concern about the low level of real rates and prospective inflation. The U.S. dollar strengthened last week, with most of the increase occuring Friday. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index decreased 1.5% to 3,768.25, the Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 1.5% to 12,998.50, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate fell 3bps to 1.09% and the dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.8%.

U.S. stock markets moved higher last week after starting the week and the year with a sharp selloff. Coronavirus-related concerns and uncertainty surrounding Georgia Senate runoff elections present on Monday were diminished after Democrat wins in Georia and Joe Biden being declared the next president of the U.S. Expectations of increased stimulus spending and Saudi Arabia’s announcement it would unilaterally reduce oil production helped power oil prices, global stock markets and longer-term U.S. interest rates higher while also strengthening the U.S. dollar despite a weaker-than-expected employment report. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index increased 1.8% to 3,824.68, the Nasdaq Composite Index increased 2.4% to 13,201.98, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate jumped 20bps to 1.12% and the dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened .2%.

U.S. stock markets moved higher last week after starting the week and the year with a sharp selloff. Coronavirus-related concerns and uncertainty surrounding Georgia Senate runoff elections present on Monday were diminished after Democrat wins in Georia and Joe Biden being declared the next president of the U.S. Expectations of increased stimulus spending and Saudi Arabia’s announcement it would unilaterally reduce oil production helped power oil prices, global stock markets and longer-term U.S. interest rates higher while also strengthening the U.S. dollar despite a weaker-than-expected employment report. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index increased 1.8% to 3,824.68, the Nasdaq Composite Index increased 2.4% to 13,201.98, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate jumped 20bps to 1.12% and the dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened .2%.
