The markets had more faces in August than a matryoshka doll. After
seesawing through mid-month, stocks plunged at the news of the coup
by Soviet reactionaries, then rallied to new highs when the
putschists were shoved out three days later. For the month, stock
funds rose nearly 3%, beating the S&P by 0.7 percentage points. Bond
funds, meanwhile, got a boost from hopes that persistent weakness in
the economy would lead to lower interest rates.
