COMMENTARYU.S. stocks enjoyed a major surge on July 1, with the Dow Jones industrialaverage posting its biggest gain since mid-March. The Dow climbed 75 points astraders were cheered by improved factory orders--and expectations of improvedprofits. However, stocks pulled back on July 2 because of declines in high-techstocks, particularly Digital Equipment. Yields on 30-year bonds fell below 7%on June 27, though improved economic tidings drove yields up again in the daysthat followed.MARKET ANALYSIS
