Market in Review 02-28-14

The Major Indices began the week with a bang as investors cheered merger & acquisition activity and a better-than-expected German Business Climate report. The Dow ended the day 0.6% higher, the S&P 500 also closed 0.6% in the black, just shy of its January 15th record close and the Nasdaq ended 0.7% higher, a 13-and-a-half-year high.
