2013 Total Returns for the S&P 500 and Other Indexes

By JLP | January 1, 2014



What a year.

• The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 29.65%

• The S&P 500 Index was up 32.39%

• The S&P MidCap 400 Index was up 33.50%

• The S&P SmallCap 600 was 41.31%

Of the ten indexes I keep track of here at AFM, 7 were up. Of the three that were down, Gold was by far the worst, losing 28.24% for the year.

The S&P 500’s 2013 return was its best since 1997 (it ranks 14th in the 88 years that I have data for).

    I guess if you are a contrarian investor you will want to buy gold and sell stocks in 2014.
