Did You Know?

Did you know that the three major US stock indices are all positive for the year?

According to, as of last Friday (June 12)

  • The DOW ended the week up for the year, albeit slightly, at +.26 percent
  • The S & P 500 has been in positive territory since early May and now stands at a gain of 4.76 percent for the year
  • While the NASDAQ moved to the plus side the beginning of April and is now at a whopping +17:87 percent year-to-date.

Although there is still a great deal of ground to make up, it is encouraging to see growth for the year from all three. Investments are beginning to rebound and positive signs abound.

Yet it is hard to pick this up from the mainstream media, which is mired in the swamp of doom and gloom, focused on negativity and pessimism.

As for me, I am full of optimism and expectations. Will you join me?
