Equity gains this past week also pushed the indexes listed here (excluding Nasdaq, which is ahead of last year) closer to their 2014 year-end levels. The yield on U.S. 10-year Treasury bonds increased over the prior week as investors undoubtedly shifted their investment dollars to equities causing bond prices to fall.
