Market volatility continues in 2023, with April proving to be another up-and-down month. But, despite stocks being under pressure for much of the month, U.S. equities bounced back by posting their best day since January on April 27th.
Small caps are down across the board as the April Stock Challenge Index tells a tale of significant losses, particularly for the second half of April.
Despite challenging markets overall, our Top 10 Stock Challengers cruised to solid gains in April. The top 18 members posted double-digit gains, but, like every month, one Challenger rose above them all.
