Dow ends above 8,000 in best 4-week run since 1933

06 April 2009 - 04:30 AM

"Stocks rose on Friday, with the Dow marking its best four-week winning streak since 1933, lifted by robust results from Research in Motion and comments by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, who said the central bank will do everything it can to stabilize banks.

Growing conviction that the worst is over for the economy helped Wall Street shrug off dour jobs data showing the highest unemployment rate since 1983.

The Nasdaq outperformed other indexes, helped by a 21 percent jump in the U.S.-listed stock of Research in Motion (Toronto:RIM.TO - News; NasdaqGS:RIMM - News) after the BlackBerry maker, a Canadian company, posted surprisingly strong results on brisk retail demand and gave a rosy outlook after Thursday's closing bell."


also a fun read:

"Stocks climbed on Tuesday, driving the S&P 500 to its best month since October 2002, as investors snapped up top-performing bank and technology shares as the first quarter came to an end."

Wikiality on Nebraska

Discovery

Nebraska was discovered in 1869 when they also discovered football. For the history of Nebraska after 1869 please refer to the annual Nebraska Cornhusker Football Media Guides.


History

The only history worth knowing is Nebraska has 5 National Championships in football: 1970, 1971, 1994, 1995, and 1997. Nebraska hates Michigan for stealing half of the 1997 National Championship. Nebraska may have invented a unicameral legislature and was home to Strategic Air Command, but it was not listed in the annual Nebraska Cornhusker Football Media Guide so they are debatable facts.


Fun Fact # 4: Incidents of crime (especially domestic abuse) go up after every football loss.




just a bit of it all. pretty awesome overall
