Equities Extend Record-Setting Gains
U.S. stocks wrapped up another bountiful week with the S&P 500 closing Friday at its seventh consecutive all-time high, a double feat not seen since 1997. Wall Street participants heralded a Goldilocks job report that topped consensus forecasts, but the unemployment rate edged 0.1% higher to 5.9%. The data boosted investor confidence that the Federal Reserve will not rush to raise rates or taper monthly asset purchases anytime soon.
