COMMENTARY

Interest-rate worries continue to keep a damper on Wall Street. Long-term

Treasury bonds, north of 6% for several weeks now, were joined by the 10-year

bonds. That put pressure on the Dow Industrials, which gave up 1.1% for the

week. Tech stocks provided some upside relief. The broadly based PSE

Technology Index gained 2.8%, and the zippier GSTI Internet Index jumped 9.4%.
