U.S. Stocks Rise on Greek Austerity Vote
U.S. stock futures rose, after the first weekly loss for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index in 2012, as Greece approved austerity plans to secure rescue funds.
"This has been a broad risk-on rally," Mike Ryan, the New York-based chief investment strategist at UBS Wealth Management Americas, said in a telephone interview. "It’s not surprising to see the market rebound. The fact that the Greek Parliament was able to push through the austerity measures was widely expected. This eliminates one of the stumbling blocks, but it doesn’t solve the Greek issue. The issue now is the next step in this process. Our view is that Greece is going to struggle to make payments going forward."
Yesterday’s Top Performing Small Cap Stock:
SIPP International Industries Inc. (Pink Sheets: SIPN)
SIPP International Industries Inc. was a SmallCapVoice top performer closing up over 24% on trading volume of 12,000 shares.
For the last several years, SIPP has worked diligently with several development stage companies in developing and then acquiring full rights and title to their products and or services. As of today, Step by Step…SIPP has grown to be the proud parent of six (6) divisions. Through its television production facilities, "La Bon Table Productions", SIPP plans to initially market its products and services through its own media productions company… much like Martha Stewart did. The company’s plan is to generate consumer awareness through its productions of "The Chef Homer Lee Thomas Show", "Emeging Bulls" and through direct response infomercials. SIPP feels that by using this planned approach, they will be able to utilize cash flow in a more positive and cost effective manner. Simply put… marketing to consumers and distributors who are already aware of a certain product makes marketing that much easier.
