Reality Check: Stock market near record highs, so what does that say about the economy?

(FOX19) - The stock market has had some very good days lately.

In fact, last Friday the Standard & Poor's 500 stock index closed above 1,500.

It is the first time that has happened since the start of the great recession in 2007.

So is this a sign that the economy is on its way back?
