More Outperformance For Growth Stocks

Yesterday was another solid day for growth investors. The Nasdaq outperformed the SPX again, as money flowed out of the cyclical and commodity complex and into larger-cap growth stocks. This is a theme I believe has legs.

The market is higher again at the open. Energy stocks are getting a little bounce after the pounding they have taken. Biotechs are also getting a big bounce after DNA reported solid results.

Bond yields are drifting higher again, with the 10-year yield climbing to 4.71%. This is above the December highs, with the next area of high ground last October's highs near 4.85%. The Bank of England raised rates by 25 bps last night to 5.25%, citing wage inflation as a concern.
