November Market Perspective
After getting off to a weak start, the U.S. equity markets regained momentum throughout October as the S&P 500 posted its best month of the year, gaining 6.91% and 22.61% year-to-date. The Dow and NASDAQ also had solid gains for the month of 5.84% and 7%, respectively. Stocks were supported by a strong start to 3rd quarter corporate earnings season, with more than 80% of companies beating analyst’s expectations. Also giving stocks a tailwind was October’s employment report showing 531,000 jobs were added when the expectations was for only 450,000. What’s more, the September jobs report was revised and increased from the initial 194,000 jobs added to 312,000.
