COMMENTARY
      Is the Fed planning yet another hike in short-term interest rates? Stock and 
      bond investors certainly are behaving like it will. Bond prices plunged, 
      forcing the yield on the 30-year U.S. Treasury bond to the highest level in 
      more than two years. Stocks took a pounding as well. On Sept. 20, the Dow Jones 
      industrials dropped more than 67 points, its worst hit in six months. The only 
      stocks doing well of late are those that benefit from inflation, such as gold 
      mining, aluminum, metals, and paper
      companies.
