Year To Date Total Returns for the S&P 500 and Other Indexes

By JLP | June 30, 2012

June turned out to be a decent month for nearly every index I track here at AFM (you can click on the graphic to download a PDF version).

Total Returns for the S&P 500, S&P 400, S&P 600, and Other Indexes

One interesting thing to point out. Had the month ended on Thursday, oil would have been down 9% for the month. Instead, yesterday’s $7.27 per barrel increase resulted in oil only being down 1.81% for June.

    Weird. If I go to Google finance, pull up SPY ytd, it shows 8.58. I realize it has a tiny exp ratio, but wonder why it shows almost 1% lower than this tables S&P 500.

    I’m up 13.71% for the year.

    I’m not sure how you calculated that return, I used the adjusted close from Yahoo (124.31 on 12/30/2012 and 136.10 on 06/29/2012) and got 9.48% for six months. Do you have a link to where you got your numbers?

    I’m pretty sure your numbers are not including dividends.
