I have been puzzled by NV’s under performance over the last few months compared with other areas, even taking holiday slowdowns into consideration. On the on hand, the off shore money/tastes theory seems plausible, while on the other hand NV has historically always followed the market up either way yet now seems to lag considerably. Any thoughts?
