Investment Figures Of The Week

Only midsize stocks showed much oomph. The Dow's flat performance was 
      especially disappointing in the wake of the better-than-expected news on the 
      inflation front, with the producer price index for May showing no gain at all 
      and the May CPI rising a minuscule 0.1%. Bonds, however, took their cue from 
      the price numbers and rallied smartly. Most foreign equity markets gained, but 
      not Tokyo, as the yen made new highs vs. the dollar and the Japanese economy 
      continued to limp along.
