The S&P 500 posted a solid gain of 3.26%.
Unemployment remained at 3.9%.
PMI, again, posted another stellar month of expansion, with the index reading 61.3%.

Unemployment is very low, again.
4.2% quarterly GDP is amazing and hasn’t happened since 2014.
The S&P 500 is rocking, with YTD yield of 9.91%
PMI continues it’s impressive streak, performing well above-average (50% is considered average) for the past 21 months.
Bottom Line:

Once again, these are awesome indicators. It is not often the economic indicators are all positive to an extreme. All this economic data clearly suggests a growth stage for the economy. The C & S funds do well in such an environment. Even a little does of stock will take you a long way.
