Basically, I had to expand the landscaped area in the picture on this page, and do a separate landscape "island" in a different part of the yard. Hard work, but definitely worth it. Things will be back to normal this coming week, at least for a few days. Then it's off to Las Vegas for the Money Show.
What more can I say that hasn't been said about the recent market action? The bonds rallied on the weaker-than-expected jobs news. But longer-term, they remain stuck in a range. The dollar has been tame for a change. And stocks? Well, they've been up for something like a bazillion out of the last bazillion-and-1 days. The exception on Friday was ... you guessed it ... the home builders. More bad earnings news there clipped most sector names for a couple of percentage points.
See you all on Monday...
