Who would have thought those pesky PIIGS would prove less problematic than a solitary tapir ? Still, when it was all over, equities had made a silk purse out of a sow's ear . The Dow (INDEXDJX:.DJI), despite a steep drop on Friday, ended up for a third straight week after the Fed unexpectedly opted to keep the easy money spigot open. Barrick Gold ( ABX ), up 5%, was one big beneficiary as the " end of gold " proved to be utter bullion. Twenty-four-carat iPhones were just the ticket for Apple Inc. ( AAPL ), whose line-loving iPhone fan boys really do need to get a life. (This as the company's chairman is asking us to live long and prosper .)

Elsewhere, Esther George was the Fed's sole voice of dissent, but if one was fun, two was better. Take-Two ( TTWO ) advanced after launching its latest Grand Theft Auto and Kythera Biopharmaceuticals (KYTH) jumped 20.78% as its double chin drug met goals in a couple of late-stage clinical trials.

There isn't any top-tier economic data due today, but Red Hat ( RHT ) is expected to announce its quarterly earnings.
