MYB: Stocks in first five days of 2013; all of them higher

Christine Romans is minding your business with the latest on U.S. futures and world markets this morning. Romans reports good news for the banking sector with international banking regulations pushed off four more years. Bank stocks around the world are rallying.

She also looks at an outlook for stocks that is essentially an automatic warning system for the rest of the year. “According to Stock Trader's Almanac, if you look back in history, when stocks are up the first five days of the year, almost always it portends an increase for the rest year,” Romans reports. And the first five days of the year were really good for U.S. stocks.

MYB: Stocks up, but shares for gunmakers tumble

U.S. stock futures are pointing to a higher open for markets. Christine Romans is minding your business this morning with more on that and stocks yesterday. “It was a good day for your investments yesterday,” Romans says, “as long as you weren’t invested in gun companies.”

The Dow, Nasdaq and S&P were all up yesterday. If the Dow continues like this, up more than 9% so far this year, “it would be the tenth best year since 1950," Romans says, "on track for one of the best years ever.”  

Shares for gunmakers tumble, meanwhile. “Publicly traded companies hammered for three days in a row now” include Smith & Wesson Holding Corp, down 19%, and Sturm Ruger & Company Inc, down 15%.
