During the month of February, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 2.5% and remained above 13,000 at the end of trading for the first time since May of 2008. Another milestone was met by the NASDAQ, which briefly reached 3,000 during the month, a level it has not seen since the tech bubble in 2000. The NASDAQ closed the month up 5.4%, while the S&P 500 posted a 4.1% gain.

Although the overall AGEM Index has yet to recover losses witnessed in the Fall of 2011, it did grow by 3.6% during the month of February, reaching a composite score of 121.71, for a gain of 4.21 points during the shortened trading month. Compared to a year ago, the AGEM Index is up 18.0%.
