Holidays greetings, Devin here. I will be filling in for Steve this week.
Well, Thanksgiving came and went leaving the market in a turkey coma Friday ending the week down. Or was it the party crashers in Korea and Europe making everyone a little too nervous? I am leaning on the turkey. Why? Well, our buddies Nas and Russell both fared pretty darn well last week and a drop in Jobless Claims shows maybe some investors were just a little too tired to get up and going on Friday.
This week should bring some more positive light on the situation. The Fed is opening the Beige Book midweek and employment numbers for November are coming by week end. Plus, Black Friday results are due and I am betting that this season's craziness got everyone pumped to produce better than expected results.
That's my take and I am sticking to it. What's yours?

Apple Can't Win
These days, it seems like Apple can do no wrong. But it's light-years behind the competition in the high-tech industry one Microsoft executive calls "bigger than music, movies, and YouTube." While Apple is blowing it, two fast-growing companies are dominating this $43 billion industry.
Analysts predict this industry will double in size in two years -- with these two companies profiting most. Hurry! Get their names (while shares are still cheap) in a FREE report from The Motley Fool, "Top 2 Plays for the Coming Tech Boom."
