Starting with last Monday, the divergence between the Dow and the Russell 2000 became a hot topic. All throughout the week, rates and the dollar rose along with oil. The Dow made a new high, but did so all alone.

Good morning Wendell. First off, thanks for reading my post! Secondly, you are correct. Except for Gilead, most are R and D type pharma companies like Regeneron, etc. More little pharma than big as you say. My major point though, is that specs line up in that sector, and I like to use IBB as part of my economic modern family-it has worked reliably for years. Have a wonderful long weekend. Please feel free to comment again anytime!

1 year ago

Although I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, I do believe that corporation lobbyists have intentionally fattened, drugged and dumbed down Americans. All while the wealthy continue to ascend.

As far as QE-Bernanke took that helm. Maybe I'm naïve, but I do think Janet Yellen has tried to deal with an impossible scenario the best she can. Meanwhile, the dystopian society you describe-well, I really hope is exaggerated. I hope! Thanks so much for your comments! Best to you.
