Regardless of whether the swine flu outbreak will turn into an alarming pandemic or simply a blip on the radar of infectious diseases, it has monopolized the headlines this week, eclipsing other events, such as the 100-day mark for President Obama and the recent retirement announcement of Justice Souter.Despite the flu frenzy, investors are breathing somewhat more easily as Wall Street closed the month of April with strong returns for each major index. For the month, the Nasdaq gained 12.3%, the S&P 500 gained 9.4% and the Dow rose 7.3%.
