COMMENTARY
      The bulls are stampeding. Responding to lower long-term interest rates, 
      investors piled into stocks. On Mar. 8 alone, the Dow surged 65 points. By Mar. 
      10, the average was at 3478.3, up 2.2% for the week. The S&P 500 also hit a 
      record of 456.34, led by the finance and cyclical stocks. Small and midsize 
      companies made good gains, too, though they're still a bit below their February 
      highs. Bullishness is catching around the world. Even the long-suffering 
      Japanese market climbed 6%.
