Diamonds and Dogs

Labor Day

September starts off with a bang. As we enjoy the Labor Day weekend and with labor the main concern of business leaders and politicians as they sit on the beach, stocks have been strong so far. Friday saw the fourth consecutive day of gains for the Dow, which is surprising considering the past historical performance of the months of September. While we are still almost 7% lower than the 2010 high from April, stocks are moving just enough to keep us interested, and we expect the trend to continue higher as we wind our way through the final month of the third quarter. Enjoy the last vestiges of summer and don't be afraid to buy a tech stock or two in the coming days.
