In a highly volatile month for local equities, the asset class managed to keep head above water with a total return of 0.19% for the month as measured by the FTSE/JSE All Share Index (ALSI). The general trend in the market continued to be dictated by macro news flow and geopolitical events. The lacklustre performance in the month could not rescue the ALSI from a material decline of 4.6% for the quarter. Globally, shares followed a similar pattern. Emerging markets were down on average by 4.1% in the quarter, while developed markets managed to stay in the blue (+0.7%), largely driven by a strong performance by US and Japanese equities.
Some recently underperforming sectors bounced in the month and some previous winners retreated. Key sector leaders were pharmaceuticals (read Aspen), which appreciated by 7.5%, and tobacco, up by 5%. The biggest laggards were the gold miners – down 15%.
Listed property was up by 0.31% in the month but could not escape the negative sentiment over the quarter as it retreated by 4.4%.
Cash returned 0.59%. Bonds gained 0.51% in the month and 0.7% over the quarter
