What a difference a week makes – all major equity indices rose last week and small caps led the way.  Earnings season and volatility continued.  The latest monthly unemployment figures, released on Friday, remained at historic lows.  All but two portfolios were up this past week, with Skidmore and newcomer Keuka College posting double digit weekly returns.  Both of these schools made the largest advances in the rankings.

Below are the current standings of the Adirondack Cup.  These returns are since inception (October 15, 2018).
