10,428 is what the Dow Jones Industrial Average started off with at the conclusion of 2009. 11,167 is today's close.
Not too shabby. In my last blog, I discussed the Promise of 2010 and I think that the results of the DOW (30 large, publicly owned companies based in the United States standard trading results) show that things have improved. I'm not ready to declare victory over the Great Recession but I'm glad to see things moving in the right direction. More companies are starting to hire and more organizations are planning to increase headcount. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and looking forward to the results of the next quarter!
Keep it up USA!
