  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    by , 09-20-2014 at 02:05 PM (TSP Talk Blog)

    It was a mixed week on Wall Street last week as the Fed seemed to ease concerns on interest rates and the S&P 500 delivered with a solid gain. Small caps, on the other hand, continue to lag and lost ground, and the international stocks ended the week flat so the TSP stock funds were not treated equally last week and TSP participants have been rewarded or punished in September based on which stock funds they've selected.

  2. New highs... again

    by , 09-19-2014 at 01:15 AM (TSP Talk Blog)

    Stocks were up across the board on Thursday; some follow-through to the Fed's "no surprises" monetary policy on Wednesday. The Dow gained 109-points, and as I mentioned before, with the Dow over 17,000, 100-point gains aren't what they used to be, but they sure beat 100-point losses.

    Stocks opened lower on Tuesday, but it turned into a turn-around-Tuesday as we saw the Dow end the day up 101-points. The S&P did slightly better percentage-wise (+0.75) while small caps lagged again as the Russell added 0.39%.

  5. Dow rising while small caps are sinking

    by , 09-15-2014 at 07:29 PM (TSP Talk Blog)

    The Dow gained 44-points on Monday and the S&P 500 slipped a point, but that wasn't the whole story yesterday. We saw sharp declines in the Nasdaq and the Russell 2000. Some high flying Nasdaq stocks were hit hard and the rest of the tech world seemed to be taken down in sympathy.

    I heard talk that the up coming IPO of Alibaba is also somewhat responsible for the selling. Alibaba's IPO will be the largest Initial Public Offering ever
