It took the Dow just 107 trading days to surge to 22,000 from 21,000. Boeing shares have had the biggest points impact on the price-weighted Dow, contributing 380.29 points since March 1, followed by McDonald's and UnitedHealth Group with 171.14 and 166.35 points, respectively.

This surge of the market is fantastic for the wealthy. Let's face it, your middle class investors are still licking their wounds from baby Bush's total collapse of the Banking, Wall Street and housing market. 50% of us Americans don't invest in anything. Market, 401, pensions, funds, ETF or IRA. Hey! But it's only been 10 years.

Let's not forget Apple's impact this year.  Up 30%.

I think think the rise in the stock market is good for everyone. The rising tide lifts all boats so to speak.

If you have an IRA, 401K, HSA, Mutual Fund, you don't have to be wealthy, just smart.
If you have an investment you are doing better. For once your retirement money is making good money. And that's a good thing.
