Both the S&P and Dow Jones industrials retreated in choppy trading Monday following losses in energy and financial stocks. However, technology stocks gained helping to limit losses and they lifted Nasdaq. The Dow lost 0.5 percent, the S&P was down 0.4 percent but the Nasdaq was up 0.3 percent higher. A lack of major US economic data also kept some traders on the sidelines ahead of the release of reports on new home sales, durable goods orders and consumer sentiment in the coming days.
US stocks were mixed Friday — the Dow Jones industrials were up 0.3 percent, the S&P was down 1.0 point and the Nasdaq retreated 0.5 percent. Strong earnings from Procter & Gamble were offset by ongoing concerns about rising interest rates and tensions over trade policy denting economic growth. On the week, the Dow added 0.4 percent, the S&P inched up 0.6 point and the Nasdaq was 0.6 percent lower. Recent jitters regarding global trade tensions and rising interest rates, which have weighed US stocks continued this week. Traders seemed reluctant to make more significant moves, however, as concerns about rising interest rates and tension between the US and Saudi Arabia continued to weigh on the markets.

All fund prices quoted are calculated as at the latest valuation date. The performance information (%) in the chart and table may have slight variances due to factors such as rounding, or charting methodology used.

Past performance information is not indicative of future performance. Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Calculation of performance is based on the NAV-to-NAV for the stated period, with dividend reinvested, in denominated currency. These figures show by how much the share class increased or decreased in value during the stated period. Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that period to calculate performance.

Performance has been calculated in the “Denominated currency” set out in the “About this fund” section in the “Fund details” tab, including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee and redemption fee you may have to pay.

Payments of dividends out of capital will only be made to seek to maintain a stable payment per share but the payment per share is not fixed. Dividend yield of the fund does not represent the return of the fund, and past dividend yield does not represent future dividend yield. The dividends are not guaranteed.
