Quarterly Azzad Funds Shareholder Letter
October 15, 2020
Dear Azzad Funds Shareholder,
The third quarter of 2020 produced the second consecutive quarter of notable market gains, with volatility (as measured by the CBOE Volatility Index or “VIX”) decreasing consistently throughout the quarter.
Behind the headline numbers, however, there was still cause for concern. Three large themes emerged during the quarter, especially during the latter half. First, U.S. dollar weakness beginning late March reversed course and strengthened 1.9 percent in September. In our view, U.S. dollar strength signaled that effects of monetary stimulus began to wane. Second, expectations for another round of fiscal stimulus appeared to fade quickly in September, which lead to increased equity market volatility. Finally, the sluggish recovery in jobs and announcements of additional job cuts indicated structural damage to the labor market.
July kicked off the third quarter with a bang as stocks surged throughout much of the month. Investors were encouraged by solid employment growth, a rise in personal income and consumer spending, a surge in the housing sector, and an increase in industrial production. All news was not positive, however. The second-quarter gross domestic product fell more than 31% and many states saw an increase in the number of reported COVID-19 cases. Nevertheless, investors stayed with equities, pushing values higher for the fourth consecutive month.
