Bots in The News:
There was little progress by either the bots or the larger caps in last week’s trading. The Bot Index fell 1.60% while the S & P 500 declined only seventy-two basis points. The only notable news that was associated with the best and worst performers involved Faro’s increase by 17% due to good sales in the fourth quarter and Tesla on the other end of the spectrum who fell 4.26%. Tesla’s decline was attributed to management’s pulling of its Y-SR+ model and a report from J D Power that its dependability is among the worst in the U.S.
