Market Quick Stats – November 2021


November’s S&P 500 total return of -0.69%, was a tad negative. However, the 30 stock Dow Jones Industrial Index fell -3.5% driven by declines in 25 of the 30 companies in the index. Looking toward December, fears of a December 15th US debt ceiling limit will likely resurface. And, markets will be focused on Chairman Jay Powell and the Fed’s latest monetary decisions in response to ongoing inflationary concerns.

The chart below highlights recent prices, total returns (total return always includes dividends), dividend yields, and trailing and forward-looking P/E’s for several major indices.
