Nasdaq-100 Has Biggest Advance in 2012 as Apple Jumps

The Nasdaq-100 Index jumped 2.7 percent to 2,709.62 at 4 p.m. New York time. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index added 1.4 percent to 1,390.69. The Dow Jones Industrial Averagerose 89.16 points, or 0.7 percent, to 13,090.72. Apple (AAPL) is not a member of the 30-stock gauge. About 6.8 billion shares changed hands on U.S. exchanges, almost in line with the three-month average.

Bet you the dopey bastards who select the components for the Dow now which they had Apple in there……..
