    We’ve had a tremendous rally since November.  In fact, some all-time records are falling – here are two you might find interesting.

    Drug giant JNJ is up an incredible 19 weeks in a row.  This is a record for any stock since 1990.  It was tied with Home Deport (HD) until it was able to gain a penny last week and move into first place all by itself.  Cal Ripken Jr. and his streak of 2,632 straight games has nothing on JNJ.

    Now for a really fun record, Tuesday is up a record 17 times in a row on the Dow.  It was down the first Tuesday of the year and has been green every single time since!  This is the all-time record for Tuesday since 1900.

    The big question now is can Tuesday keep it going?  The all-time daily win streak for any day is Wednesday, with its streak of 24 in a row from June to November 1968.
