U.S. investors pushed equity funds to their strongest quarterly performance since Q1 2019 as the U.S. labor market remained strong, Q3 earnings reports came in better than expected, and investors remained optimistic over China and U.S. trade negotiations. For Q4 2019, the average equity fund posted a 7.56% return, with Lipper’s World Equity Funds macro-classification (+9.26%) outpacing the other six major equity groups for the first quarter in nine. In this segment, I highlight the Q4, December, and 2019 performance results for equity mutual funds and ETFs.
