This is the broadest rally I have ever seen! It includes every single stock that may play a role in the last mile of wire into your house. It encompasses many of the stocks that provide customer retention services and email for Web companies! It favors stocks that make dot-coms work faster and via wireless. And it blesses a handful of biotechs!
