  1. Yields dip, earnings rise - good recipe for stocks

    Stocks rallied on more good earnings reports, and yesterday there was a little less profit taking and more jumping on the Facebook bandwagon. The Dow gained 239-points, or 1%, while the Nasdaq shined with a gain of 1.64%, but we saw pockets of weakness as the Dow Transportation Index was down almost 1% on the day, although it did climb back from an early nearly 2% loss.
