Investment Figures Of The Week

A desultory week in the financial markets. U.S. equities and bonds took a 
      beating, as interest rate worries roiled the markets. Even generally favorable 
      earnings reports failed to buoy the markets. The yield of 30-year Treasuries 
      climbed to 7.6%, as investors continued to predict an upturn in inflation. The 
      bond and stock markets alike were pummeled by a desultory auction of 10-year 
      Treasury notes on May 11. Traders were expecting discouraging consumer and 
      producer price index numbers.
