  • Several regional banks have been trading near their 52-week highs in the last few days. Do they have further room to run? Craig Siegenthaler, analyst at Credit Suisse, and David Katz, chief investment officer at Matrix Asset Advisors, shared their sector outlooks.

  • Yikes! The Mortgage Bankers Association reported that 30-year fixed rate mortgages jumped a quarter point to 5.31 percent (!!) last week, the highest level level since August.

  • What follows is a look at stocks in the S&P 500 displaying unusual volume in today's trading session.

  • S&P 500 closes at 1150.24, a 52-week high. One of the last technical hurdles was breached at the close today, as the S&P 500 closed at its highest level since October 1, 2008. The big cap index has now joined the Nasdaq, Russell 2000 and S&P Midcap, all at new highs. How strong has this slow melt-up been?

  • Citigroup did (finally!) announce the terms of its trust preferred offering: $2 billion (80 million shares), par $25, at a yield of 8.5 percent.  The surprise here is the yield: 8.5 percent, less than the 8.875 percent that traders had been told last night. Demand was much stronger than expected, resulting in a lower yield than initially telegraphed.

  • Stocks rallied Wednesday as the dollar pulled back and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke pledged to keep rates low for a long time. Financials were among the top gainers.

  • Great news! We're growing too fast. China's GDP surged 10.7 percent in the fourth quarter compared to the same period a year ago, above expectations of a gain of 10.5 percent. Economic growth for 2009 came in at 8.7 percent. The minimum usually cited to continue to create jobs is 8 percent, so by any measure China is in good shape (assuming the numbers are accurate).
