As I’ve pointed out over the past couple of weeks, during the Clinton administration when the Dow broke its last record, the media went on about it for weeks. This past couple of weeks as the Dow continues to break new all-time records, most people haven’t even got the slightest clue that it’s happening. For example, there’s nothing about it hitting another all-time high today in Canada’s financial capital’s favorite newspaper, the far-leftist Toronto Star. Nothing! Of course they’re not “into” that whole “capitalist” thing. Liberals are against that! Too competitive!
NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rose Wednesday, driving the Dow to yet another record close…
The Dow Jones industrial average gained 6.80 points, or 0.06 percent, to close at a record 12,134.68. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index added 4.84 points, or 0.35 percent, to finish at 1,382.22. The Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 11.75 points, or 0.50 percent, to close at 2,356.59.
Here’s a chart showing the Dow climbing steadily to today.
(Liberals will be happy to note that HALLIBURTON is up a buck-eighty today at $32.64 American-style dollars.)
Just for interest sake alone, ok I admit it it’s really just for fun, here’s a chart showing the Toronto Star’s stock going down steadily.
