Latest Publications August 2023 Recap

The S&P 500 recorded its first down month since February, hurt by weakness among banks, automakers, and Big Tech firms. Energy was the only S&P 500 sector to preserve an August gain, bolstered by rising oil prices. A rare four-day rally in late August helped narrow deeper earlier losses of over 4.5%. Solid earnings amongst the largest chipmakers revived interest in AI (artificial intelligence) companies. Favorably, the S&P 500 finished August above its 50-day moving average.
