The market posted another modest gain Wednesday.
It’s springtime for stocks after a winter filled with turmoil. The major averages are back from the brink and approaching their old highs.

That’s how the ridiculous FANG meme – Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google — came to be. Many investors thought these were the only stocks worth owning.
