Asset Managers Fall 31 Percent

News summary by MFWire's editors

Asset managers' rough year continues.

Frank E. Holmes
U.S. Global
CEO, Chief Investment Officer
So far this month, the S&P 500 has fallen 7.75 percent, the Dow 7.29 percent, and the Nasdaq has 7.46 percent. 22 publicly traded asset managers suffered an average share price drop of 11.51 percent this month.

Year-to-date, though the overall market picture is better, it's even worse for asset managers. Shares in those 22 publicly traded asset managers are down an average of 31.45 percent this year, compared to single drops in the three aforementioned indices: the S&P 500 is down 4.77 percent, the Dow 4.22 percent, and the Nasdaq 1.73 percent.

Eight of those 22 publicly traded asset managers have seen their shares dip less than 10 percent this month. Only one, Manning & Napier, is down less than five percent in December. Year-to-date, AB is the sole asset manager whose shares have actually gone up in price; all the rest have seen double digit percentage losses.

Here's the full list, from smallest to biggest sufferers year-to-date:

AB, down 14.66 percent this month-to-date, but up 2.91 percent YTD;
