Hello Everyone, Solid earnings reports helped propel the major U.S. stock indexes to small gains, sending the S&P 500's year-to-date total return back into positive territory. The Dow rose more than 200 points on Monday and Tuesday, but stocks held steady Wednesday and closed the week with declines on Thursday and Friday.
On this date in 1859 William Byers distributes the first newspaper ever published in the frontier boomtown of Denver, Colorado. As was the case in many western frontier towns, would-be journalists in Denver were vying for the honor of publishing the first newspaper. In Byers’ case, his competitor was the Cherry Creek Pioneer. Byers printed and distributed the first edition, beating the first release of The Pioneer by only 20 minutes. In honor of the rugged mountain range that rose up abruptly to the west of Denver, Byers named his new venture in frontier journalism The Rocky Mountain News.
Finally, yesterday was the birthday of William Shakespeare, oddly enough, he died on that same date 52 years later.
Have a great rest of the week everyone.
If good things come in small packages, then more good things can come in large packages, right?- Just a thought
