2017 Stock Market Results – Did You Invest In The Losers?

The overall markets and indices were up for 2017, and for some, the rising tide may be floating all boats. If you are an investor and your portfolio is not reflecting the positive results that you would have expected given the market performance, it might make sense to review with your financial advisor the big picture (your overall asset allocation, investment strategy, and overall goals and objectives). You should also do a more detailed review of your individual sector and industry allocation and exposure, as well as the size and quality of your individual holdings.

The headlines and news stories are chock full of reports on the positive performance and returns, but the S&P 500, for example, has seen some substantial losers as well in 2017. For example:

  • Range Resources (-54%)
  • Baker Hughes (-50%)
  • Envision Healthcare (-49%)
  • Mattel (-49%)
  • Chesapeake Energy (-48%)
  • Under Armour (-47%)
  • General Electric (GE) (-40%)
  • Advance Auto (-40%)
  • Scana (-37%)
  • Hewlett Packard (-36%)

If your investment portfolio included a large position in one or more of these companies, or if you have questions regarding your individual investments or your overall investment portfolio, please call the Investment Fraud Lawyers at 1-800-856-3352 for a no-cost consultation and review.
