  • From fundhunter_co:

    @vitaliyk At the same time didn’t the Nasdaq 100 take 17 years to hit a new high and the S&P 500 something like 12 years (on a sustainable basis). So part of it was the two bear markets that followed. You also had to buy Microsoft at the worst time, in 1999, for this example to be true.

  • From LaMonicaBuzz:

    Another impressive day for the market. 27 Dow stocks finished higher. Only $CVX $JNJ $AMGN in red. Energy was only S&P sector to close lower. And just 11 stocks in the Nasdaq 100 were down. But let’s see what happens tomorrow!
