Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Exelixis and 22nd Century Group

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2018 / U.S. markets rallied on Monday, after posting its worst weekly decline in two years, as President Trump unveiled details from his long awaited $200 billion infrastructure plan. The Dow Jones Industrial Average spiked 1.70 percent to close at 24,607.27, while the S&P 500 Index jumped 1.39 percent to close at 2,656.00. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.56 percent to close at 6,981.96.

"It usually takes a few weeks to work through the kind of correction we had. With options contracts expiring on Friday and a day off for markets next Monday, as well as important data releases, this will be a volatile week, with a lot of intraday swings," said J.J. Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade, according to MarketWatch.

"We are in a period when everything is being re-evaluated. The inflation number will be the first number after a tumultuous week, so people will be paying a lot of attention to it. Though, portfolio strategies should not change just on one data point," Kinahan said.
