Blue Chips Are Beat — Microsoft and General Electric might seem boring, but big stocks always get their turn on Wall Street. And when a big company gets rolling, they usually have a nice run.

INFORMATION OVERLOAD: DO YOU WORRY YOURSELF SICK?
The latest affliction targeting young men in the prime of their life: The "worry well" phenomenon. "It's unquestionable that many guys today are worrying much more about health than previous generations of men," says Marc Siegel, M.D., an associate professor at New York University school of medicine. "Health fear itself has become an infectious disease." What concerns a growing cadre of contemporary researchers and clinicians alike is that morbid health preoccupations no longer appear limited to a small pathological subfraction. Rather, cases seem to be exploding in modern America, arguably the healthiest time and place humans have ever lived.
