  1. Stocks rally to start the new week

    Stocks started the new week with more impressive gains. The Dow lagged again because of more weakness in Boeing and IBM, but the broader indices were up with the Transports (+1.36%), the Nasdaq, and the small caps, particularly the Russell 2000, leading on the upside. Bonds were down as yields seem to be trying to put in a bottom.

  2. Investors showing nerves despite the S&P being new highs

    Like IBM on Thursday, another Dow component, Boeing, got clobbered on Friday pulling that index down nearly 1%, while percentage-wise most of the other major indices, including the S&P 500, small caps, and the I-fund, lost less than a half of a percent on the day.
