LONDON, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

2013 began on a solid note as lawmakers reached a last-minute deal on the fiscal cliff issue. The last-minute deal ended uncertainty surrounding the U.S. economy. Economic data released in the first two months of 2013, meanwhile, suggested that the economy was seeing a strong recovery. The rebound in economic activity, and passage of fiscal cliff deal was a positive development for services sector.

(NYSE: LOW), OfficeMax Inc. (NYSE: OMX), Hawaiian Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: HA), Caesars Entertainment Corp. (NASDAQ: CZR), and DeVry Inc. (NYSE: DV).
