Lipper Weekly U.S. Fund Flows Video Series - January 16, 2013
Published on 18 Jan 2013 by Matthew Lemieux
Investors continued to show optimism in the global equity markets as better than expected export news out of China and continued weakness in the Japanese yen boosted Asian indices. With a strong Q4 earnings season kickoff at home, the U.S. markets joined suit; the S&P 500 index added just over three-quarters of a percentage point for the week ending Wednesday, January 16. Combine the 3%-plus returns we have seen so far this year with the previous week’s large equity fund flows, and one would expect the perfect recipe for continued buying.
