Daily Wrap 01/24/07

Summary:
Another good day up 1.1%. Green all around with metals and Japan making biggest impact because of their heavy weightings. For the second straight day my big loser was “sure thing” CME short. JCG was up a little too. Its secondary offering prices tomorrow so we’ll see if this drags it down. Also there was an insider filing to sell 500,000 shares. Took a small position in SUNW today at 6.09. The stock jumped 8.6% as the company reported its first quarterly profit in a while. Its probably too early to tell if its poised for a comeback, but it has been an innovative company with new leadership making some strategic changes so I’m in for small punt.
