Index Gains Distribution

All major indices posted healthy gains last week.

The blue chips led the way, while the Nasdaq Tech issues and Russell 2000 small caps lagged. Financials, which had been conssitently poor, showed signs of life. Exporting beneficiaries of the weak dollar — think industrials like Honeywell (HON) and Caterpillar (CAT) — had strong earnings.

Its interesting to note, however, that these gains were not evenly distributed. The Dow was the only index in the green everyday last week.  Econoday uses a very attractive form of info-porn:
