Stocks continued their climb on Friday following strong earnings from the Technology sector. The Nasdaq (tech heavy index) climbed 0.7%, while the S&P 500 added 0.3% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average followed with a 0.1% gain. Another healthy earnings season is winding down and Q4 is underway. If we use history as our guide, November and December tend to be good months for investors. Nevertheless, 2017 has already provided noteworthy performance. Year-to-date gains are now 25.7% for the Nasdaq, 19.1% for the Dow and 15.6% for the S&P 500.
