COMMENTARY

It's getting ugly for the Dow industrials. Procter & Gamble's Mar. 7 stunner

that earnings will be far below expectations helped push the struggling Dow

below 9800. That's barely above the year-ago level. The Dow's troubles had

little impact on the unstoppable Nasdaq Composite, which gained 2.4% for the

week and more than 100% over the past 12 months.
