LPL Financial's Weekly Market Commentary

What are we telling our investors? Focus on fundamentals. It was an up-and down week for stocks as market participants became increasingly worried that the Trump administration's agenda was in danger following the latest news surrounding the Russian investigation. On Wednesday (May 17), the S&P 500 Index suffered its biggest one-day drop in nearly a year (-1.8%), while the Nasdaq Composite (-2.6%) and Russell 2000 Index (-2.8%) suffered even bigger losses.
