TSP gains lag in May
Monday - 6/3/2013, 3:17pm EDT
Overall, two of the five regular funds ended May in negative territory, including the F Fund (the bond market) and the I Fund (international stocks). The F Fund is down 0.76 percent for the year.
The remaining funds — the G, C and S Fund posted modest gains for the month.
The Lifecycle Funds (a mix of investment options targeted to when federal employee retiree and begin drawing on their TSP accounts) all ended last month on positive ground, although the gains were much smaller compared to April. Last month, all the L funds — with the exception of the L Income — were up more than 1 percent for the month; the L 2040 and L 2050 cracked 2 percent.
Even with the slight slow-down , it's still a far cry from last May when economic turmoil roiled through Europe, Wall Street and feds' retirement accounts.
Year-to-date, every fund but one (the F Fund) is in the black. Gains over the past 12 months are even higher. The C, S and the I Fund are all up at least 30 percent (or close to it) over the past 12 months. The L 2020 is up 15.78 percent and the L 2030 is up nearly 20 percent.
