(The u003cstrong>S&P Small Cap 600u003c/strong> is doing even better; it's up u003cstrong>10.1%u003c/strong> in that same period.) At the same time, the blue chip u003cstrong>Dow Jones Industrial Averageu003c/strong> is down u003cstrong>1.5%u003c/strong> and the large-cap u003cstrong>Nasdaq 100u003c/strong> is flat, up u003cstrong>0.1%u003c/strong>.

Unemployment claims jumped sharply last week with the seasonally adjusted tally hitting u003cstrong>965,000u003c/strong>, far above economists' estimates. The problem is that the labor market is broadly weaker, with declines in 36 states, showing that a larger economic decline is under way. The much-watched number of recipients on continued unemployment benefits has ticked up, to u003cstrong>5.271 millionu003c/strong>. Investors continue to shrug off labor data, but economists aren't. "The stock market is not the economy—as was often pointed out throughout 2020—however, even the largest companies in the stock market rely on a stronger economy in order to continue to grow revenues," Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for Independent Advisor Alliance, wrote in an investor note yesterday.u003c/p> u003cp>***u003c/p> u003cp>Have a nice weekend, everyone.
