Here's the last 5-day record:
Dow Jones 30: 34,043.49 (-0.46%, year-to-date: 11.23%)
S&P 500: 4,180.17 (-0.13%, year-to-date: 11.29%)

Jobs, jobs, jobs
ZipRecruiter Inc just filed for IPO through direct listing on the New York Stock Exchange. If you're not familiar with ZipRecruiter, it's an online employer/employee job search platform not unlike Monster or Indeed.
Well...ALMOST to the moon.
Bitcoin's been on a wild ride recently but seems like it lost steam and went the other way. Dipping at under 18% from open this week, Bitcoin's got some speculators sweating.
A shot of Apple
In partnership with Walgreens, Apple's opening up appointments for its employees to get vaccinated in the office. This comes as the latest push from big companies providing optional vaccination services to their employees, with Amazon being one of the notable titans providing on-site vaccinations last month. Must be nice to skip the line!

I'm still happy about that stock split a while ago. Apple's been kicking bottoms but we'll see if they can keep themselves above earnings projections (and most importantly, guidance).
Who competes with AAPL?
Apple's competitors are essentially the other tech giants, e.g. Microsoft (MSFT) whose earnings are also on the horizon, Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB).
