Upward TSP trend continues
Monday - 10/1/2012, 9:54am EDT
The biggest gains came in the following funds: the C Fund (up 2.57 percent), which tracks the performance of the S&P 500; the S Fund (up 2.51 percent), which matches the Dow Jones Completion Index, made up of companies not included in the S&P 500; and the I Fund (up 2.96 percent), which tracks international stocks.
The second month of mostly modest gains in these and the other funds pushed up the year-to-date and 12-month performance for many of the funds.
The C and the S Funds are both up about 16 percent for the year and about 30 percent for the last 12 months.
Returns for the Lifecycle funds, a mix of investment options targeted to an investor's expected retirement date, were similar to their performance in August. Over the last 12 months, the L 2040 and L 2050 are up significantly.
The G Fund, which invests in government-backed securities, posted returns of 0.10 percent, down slightly from August. The F Fund, which invests in government bonds, posted returns of 0.15 percent, doubling what it did in August.
