2018 US stock market index returns

stockindexcloudThe table below provides US stock market returns for 2018 as measured by major index providers.

2018 returns

Note that index providers have differing metrics for defining size and style dimensions, and employ differing transition metrics for stocks migrating from size and style categories. These differences are reflected in the dispersion of returns in each category.

Note also that with the merger of Dow Jones indexes with Standard and Poors, S&P only publishes returns for Dow Jones indexes used as tracking indexes by Schwab index mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.
