First Half Scorecard

With a surge in the past few days, most of the major stock indexes ended the first half of 2016 in positive territory. Rebounding from the Brexit fears, the S&P 500 index posted its best three-day gain since February to finish the first half at a positive  2.7 percent.

Other indexes:
  • The Dow Jones is slightly better, up 2.9 percent for the first half
  • Gains on Thursday pushed the Russell 2000 into positive territory, up 1.4 percent for the year
  • But the Nasdaq remained negative, down 3.3 percent for the first half of the year
