I Will Be Back

Stocks quoted in this article:

As is usually the case on Fridays...much to my chagrin...I need to step away from my screen for a quick meeting. As I take a quick look around before dashing off, I see...the indices are still near breakeven...housing stocks are under a bit of pressure after holding up yesterday...financials are showing some follow-through to yesterday's weakness...bonds are still down...energy/oil/natural resources are today's leaders...

Its Alive...Alive...

by 2/18/2005 10:04 AM
Stocks quoted in this article:

Stocks are moving and here is what I see...

There was a slight negative bias at the open but the broad market indices are now trading flat...The INX stands out on the upside but when I looked at my major 'net stocks (AMZN, EBAY, YHOO, GOOG) I didn't "see" the strength as most were flat. A little digging reveals that Akamai Technologies (AKAM) technology seems to be driving the INX with its 14 percent gain this morning - after reporting earnings last night...Bonds are taking a hit after the higher than expect core PPI numbers this morning....
