  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up


    Stocks were up to start the week but slipped quickly ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. When we typically see a strong buying sentiment among stocks, we saw weakness this year. But the real trouble came after Thanksgiving on Friday where stocks sold off more than 2% across the TSP stock funds.

    Earnings and low volatility continued to do well for large cap stock indices this week. The S&P 500 (C-fund) produced its fourth straight week of gains and its 59th record close this year. Without the heavy weighted companies lifting large caps, small caps (S-fund) lagged this week ending the week flat and off its highs. The performance of small caps reflects the entire market a bit better than the large caps. Even the sectors of the S&P 500 were split in performance but the gains out of consumer ...
