Bond Yields Moving Lower Despite ECI

The market is getting a little bounce at the open. Tech and biotech are both up nicely, while most other sectors are mixed.

The Employment Cost Index (ECI) came in at +1.0% (vs. +0.9% consensus). But while that might concern some of the inflation hawks, the bond market is signaling otherwise. The 10-year yield is moving lower again, falling 4 basis points today to 4.63%.

In other news and notes:
  • CBG will acquire TCC for $49.51
  • UARM beats estimates; stock up nicely
  • BJS beats EPS by a penny; stock lower
  • Goldman adds CSCO to Conviciton List
  • STTX misses estimates; stock gaps down
  • RACK reports solid qtr; stock higher
  • SIRF upgraded to Buy at Longbow; tgt. $36
  • Consumer Confidence 105.4 vs. 107.8 consensus
