Investment Figures Of The Week

COMMENTARY
      Worried about the high level of U.S. stock prices, investors cashed in some 
      profits. The Dow industrials fell 42 points, or 1.2%, from a high on June 3. 
      The broader S&P 500-stock index took an even bigger hit, down 1.8%, and 
      small-cap issues were off 1.9%. Profit-taking hurt some of the market's 
      darlings, like gaming and high-tech issues. The selling was attributed in part 
      to nervousness about upcoming inflation reports. However, the bond market, 
      which is even warier of inflation, ended the week little changed.
