February 8 - 12, 2021 Recap

Back-to-Back Weekly Gains
U.S. stocks advanced a second week as investors cheered progress for additional fiscal stimulus with House Democrats approving $1,400 direct payments for most Americans. Energy was the best-performing sector for a second week, benefiting from freezing temperatures across most of the country including the South, sparking a rally in oil prices. Utilities lagged as electricity suppliers from North Dakota to Texas were forced to impose demand-limiting rolling power cuts to prevent the collapse of their network grids.

Weekly Performance
For the week, the S&P 500 gained 1.28%, the Dow Industrials tacked on 310-points (+1.00%) and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite advanced 1.74%. The small cap-focused Russell 2000 performed best last week, extending gains by 2.54% to top 16% YTD.
