The market worked hard for the first 7 weeks of the year, driving to a high of 4939, before plunging to 4480 (almost 10%) just under a month later. We recovered quickly; hitting the year high in the second week of April, but that was to be the brightest spot of 2011.

The trend has been pretty ugly since, and we're off around 20% since that mid-April peak.

Who's Done What?

Posted on Friday, November 25, 2011
From some recent feedback we are going to include each week this section called "who's done what", this will include some company announcements that we find of interest. This week.
