Apple, one of the darlings of the current bull market, delivered on the earnings, share repurchase, and split fronts after the close Wednesday.

The main U.S. stock market indexes lost between 0.1% and 0.9% yesterday, retracing some of the recent move up, as investors decided to take profits off the table. The S&P 500 index remains quite close to its April 4 all-time high of 1,897.28, however, it...

It has been a long way down for the Tokyo Nikkei Dow (TNA). Almost twenty-four years after peaking at 38,915, the TNA remains down 63% from those lofty levels. It has been Japan’s long nightmare.
