After the stellar gains in 2017, this year is shaping up to be a bit trickier for investors looking to get a decent return. It was certainly true during the first quarter of the year. Stocks spent much of the last three months trending lower as investors could no longer brush off concerns of high valuations. In the end, stocks recorded a net loss for the first quarter of 2018.
