Editors Note:

After the 22-point gain on the Russell yesterday the index only declined 2 points today. Granted the rest of the market was flat as well with the exception of the biotech sector, which imploded. There are plenty of biotechs in the Russell but the index managed to overcome those declines to remain relatively flat. The Biotech Index fell -122 points and that also weighed on the Nasdaq. We did not experience any material gains or losses in the portfolio. This was a throwaway day.
