S&P 500's New All Time High Wednesday Will Probably Continue Over Upcoming Months, But Other Indexes Are Struggling

S&P 500’s new all time high on Wednesday will probably continue over the next several months, but other indexes are struggling.  For example, in 2014 the Russell 2000 Total Return Index is up only .25% through August 20th, while the S&P 500 is up 8.89%.  Below are other equity indexes that are underperforming the S&P 500 in 2014 through August 20th.

MSCI Japan NR USD (in U.S. Dollars): -.20%

MSCI Europe NR USD (in U.S. Dollars): +.79%

S&P Goldman Sachs Commodity Index Total Return CME: -3.07%

While the Indexes above have struggled, there have also been stellar performance in U.S. REITs, Health Care, U.S. Mid-Cap Stocks, and Emerging Markets.  One caveat though, future performance in any index may not be to the upside, although one hopes that isn’t the case.
