I’m so totally kidding…anyway, German, Spanish, French and Italian stocks rallied nicely into their close today and Hilsenrath’s whisper of more Fed intervention being on the way was enough to spark an all-up day for US stocks.
And who can ignore the sexual climax-inducing run that Apple’s been on this week….$422 as of this writing. I’m not sure any of us has ever seen anything quite so beautiful in the world of investing or ever will again. Everyone who’s not on board is now chasing the $AAPL train into the annals of mega-cap greatness. It’s clearly going to $5,000 a share and James Altucher will be our next wavy-haired president.
I need a moment…
