COMMENTARY

Investors breathed a sigh of relief when the Federal Reserve decided to sit

tight and not raise short-term interest rates. While rate hikes later this year

remain a possibility, for now the markets seem satisfied. For the week, stocks

made small gains across a wide variety of sectors. Large-company stocks

generally fared the best. Beaten-down utility shares were among the hot

performers, with the S&P utility index up 2.9%. That suggests investors may

think the interest-rate run-up is just about over.
