Second Quarter 2017 Update

June 30, 2017

Hamlin equity accounts advanced over the last three months. The S&P 500 gained 3.1% during the second quarter, defying skeptics. Stocks celebrated strong Q1 corporate earnings performance, shrugging off uneven economic data, obstruction of justice charges, and another delay in healthcare reform.

December 31, 2016

Hamlin equity accounts increased in value over the last three months as the S&P 500 jumped 3.8% in the fourth quarter, celebrating both Donald Trump’s unexpected presidential election victory and a GOP congressional majority.

Extremely low interest rates here in America and negative rates in Europe and Japan continue to render U.S. stocks relatively attractive even as valuations creep above long-term averages.
