The abridged index now consists of 2500 stocks and is more diverse, with tech stocks making up just 44% of the index. In fact tech stocks are not even the top bets this year. Technology investments end up unused, surpassed by competitors, & not needed anymore. FLOP Tech investments are also notorious, for being here one day gone the next.

Biofuel is number One

BioFuel Energy Corp. has been sending the same message since years ago, becoming the stock that they are. BioFuel surged 132% on March 30, 2014 after it received a proposal from Greenlight Capital and James R. Brickman to acquire JBGL Capital LP and certain subsidiaries of JBGL Builder Finance LLC. Post the deal on June 10, valued at $275 million, Greenlight Capital owns 49.9% stake in BioFuel, up from its earlier 35.4% stake and Brickman holds 8.4% stake.

The S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq Composite Indexes reached all-time highs after China’s statement.

Adam Phillips, director of portfolio strategy for EP Wealth Advisors, said “I don’t think we would be seeing these types of deals if the outlook for markets and the economy weren’t favorable. This is one additional piece we can look at to see the outlook for markets is a positive one.”

Bloomberg reported that equities climbed across Asia, “led by those in Hong Kong, where local elections brought a landslide victory to pro-democracy candidates. The dollar gained versus the euro and yen.”
