UBS GWM Head of Americas Equities David Lefkowitz argues one survey conducted by investors last week gives a 'contrarian' signal. U.S. stock markets booked strong gains for a second consecutive session on Thursday as investors digested the Federal Reserve’s plans for tapering its asset purchases and raising interest rates. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 507 points, or 1.48%, while the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite index advanced 1.21% and 1.04%, respectively. The Dow was up more than 621 points at session highs. Stocks are now marginally positive for the week.
