COMMENTARY

Bond prices fell during the week, pushing the rate on long-term Treasury bonds

up over 6.7%. Still, the stock market, with the exception of technology

companies, seemed to shrug it off. Money appeared to be moving into beaten-up

sectors such as financials, transportation, and utilities. Those sectors are

interest-rate sensitive, and their strength suggests rates are near their

peak.
