These companies are showing positive signs of value recently and are expected to continue to grow.
The big 2013 rally continues. The Dow's winning streak is its longest since November 1996. The S&P 500 finishes 2 points below its 2007 closing high.
The rally's shunning these related companies, and that's fine -- we don't need a repeat of 2007-2008.
Congrats, market, on 8 straight up days. But 9? The last time we had a winning streak like that was last century.
The Fed-induced rally has resulted in an overvalued market fundamentally and an overbought market technically.
Citigroup, State Street and Bank of New York Mellon are among the winners.
Enthusiasm for the Dow's record high looks dangerously frothy given the context of the move.
