    U.S. stocks, coming off back-to-back losing sessions, started the penultimate trading day of the week nicely to the upside, getting a welcome boost from details on the latest quantitative easing maneuvers in the euro zone. Specifically, the European Central Bank will commence its $1.1 trillion bond-buying program next week, with a scheduled ending in some 18 months from now, according to ECB President Mario Draghi. Even so, while stocks in Europe rose to begin the session, the euro traded down to more than a decade low.

    Job Growth Accelerates In February
    William G. Ferguson  |  03/06/2015
    This morning, the investment community received positive news on the U.S. economy when the Department of Labor released its report on employment and unemployment for the month of February at 8:30 A.M. (EST). Specifically, the report showed that the nation’s nonfarm payrolls increased by 295,000 last month. This comes on the heels of Wednesday’s report from payroll processing giant Automatic Data Processing (ADP) that the private sector had added a seasonally adjusted 212,000 jobs last month.

    Using A Value Line Report: Is Wal-Mart Stock A Bargain?
    Jeffrey Hirt  |  03/05/2015
    Since its doors first opened in 1962, Wal-Mart (WMT) has expanded to become the world’s largest retailer. Today, the behemoth’s "Every Day Low Prices" motif is ubiquitously known among the value conscious. But does WMT stock offer similar value to investors?

    The U.S. stock market put in a choppy, but constructive, session today. By the close of trading, the Dow Industrial Average had advanced 39 points; the broader S&P 500 Index had tacked on three points; and the NASDAQ had moved up 16 points.

    The first few trading days of the month of March have seen the return of volatility to the market. Fresh off of a February where the bulls ruled the roost -- and a number of the major equity indexes set all-time highs -- we are now seeing traders take a bit of a pause. They are using the opportunity to take some profits off the table in a market where valuations are frothy. Some decent, but nonetheless uninspiring, economic data are not providing the impetus to push stocks notably higher and, with the absence of much earnings news right now, we are seeing some backtracking off of the recent highs.
