Most Slumping Equity Indexes in Red for the Year

Ticker Board

After surging ahead earlier this week, most equity indexes fell sharply going into the weekend. It wasn't a great week for most equity fund investors, and a look at 1-year index returns shows pain has been the norm over the last 12 months. As a result, fund investors have been stuffing cash into conservative fixed-income funds and cooling on stock funds. Lipper reported that S&P 500 index funds experienced outflows of $900 million in May.

The following index performance data was included in Standard & Poor's latest weekly market analysis.
