Best Performing T. Rowe Price Mutual Funds Of Q2 2015

Winter Slowdown is Momentary : T. Rowe Price Chief U.S. Economist Alan Levenson noted that the winter effect was partly to be blamed. However, while winter caused some hiring weakness and the West Coast ports strike added to concerns, job growth gathered steam in April and May. While initial claims had dropped to a 15-year low, wage gains and consumer spending also reflected strong trends.

Timing of the Fed Rate Hike : The winter effect had pushed back expectations for the first rate hike. The Fed minutes from the April’s policy meeting noted that the winter effect made it “unlikely” for Fed to raise rates in June. The number of members anticipating rate hike increased in June meeting.

Greece : The quarter ended on a dismal note largely due to the Greek debt concerns. Greece and its creditors continued negotiations about the repayment of debt. Greece had proposed bundling several debt repayments to the IMF. On Jun 29, US markets had the steepest daily decline since Oct 2014 as Greece shut down banks and the stock market.
