But what exactly popped -- the indexes seemed to rise big time, but what is it that rose so much? I used the Deluxe Screener on MSN to get the following list. 77% are in finance and related. 6% in airlines. But note that the average of all of them even after today's pop are still down about fifty percent from their 52 week high, and down forty three percent YTD. My biggest popper was PMFG with just a 6.79% gain. Nothing great, but I'm happy having avoided these babies. So I missed some of the big poppers of the day, but I also avoided the big drawdowns of the last few months holding them long. Ah, the joys of being mechanical and following one's strategy as it dictates in real time.
