House View – January 2023: January 6, 2023

Good morning and welcome to the Weekender for Saturday, January 6, 2023. US equity returns for 2022, as measured by the S&P 500, were lower by -19.4%. The much narrower thirty-member Dow Jones Industrial Index fell by only -8.8%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq lost almost one-third of its value, down by -33.1%.
