The S&P 500 declined -3.27% in the third quarter, following three consecutive quarterly gains. Risk was repriced during the period as interest rates reached their highest levels in 16 years and investors began to adjust to the idea that rates are likely to remain higher for longer than initially anticipated. On a year-to-date basis the benchmark S&P 500 is up 13.07% and 21.62% over the trailing 12-months. While market breadth improved in the third quarter, it has been a historically narrow market on a year-to-date basis with just a few stocks generating the majority of the S&P 500’s returns; on an equal-weighted basis, the benchmark is essentially flat for the year. Energy and Communication Services were the best performing sectors for the third quarter, while Information Technology was a notable laggard in contrast to the first half of the year.
