Investment Figures of the Week

Some disappointing economic news--a strong downward revision of first quarter

GDP, and a decline in durable goods orders--sent the stock market heading

south. Among the worst hit were cyclical companies that are dependent on a

stronger economy. But the week wasn't all bad, either. The bond market

strengthened, with the long-term Treasury-bond yield once again dipping below

6.8%. And in the currency market, the dollar firmed, gaining about 2% against

the Japanese yen.
