The S&P 500 is one more breakout away from erasing a previous bearish trading pattern. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallies on.
Major U.S. stock indexes edged mostly higher in afternoon trading Wednesday as gains in financial companies outweighed losses elsewhere in the market. Bond yields climbed to the highest level in four months, sending bank shares higher and weighing on utilities and other high-dividend payers. Energy stocks rose along with crude oil prices. Homebuilders declined following a mixed batch of housing data. Technology companies lagged the most.
U.S. stocks are mostly higher on Wednesday as investors took escalating trade tensions in stride to instead focus on improving economic fundamentals.
The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield moved back above the symbolic 3 percent mark on Tuesday and hit its highest in four months on Wednesday, while two-year rates reached 2.8 percent, the highest in over a decade. Rises in market interest rates tend to boost banks and the S&P financial sector rose 1.64 percent, lifted by a 2.6 percent increase in shares of JPMorgan & Chase.
The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrials Average rose on Wednesday, helped by upbeat housing data and a gain for bank stocks driven by rising Treasury yields, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq was weighed by a drop in Microsoft. The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield moved back above the symbolic 3 percent mark on Tuesday and hit its highest in four months on Wednesday, while two-year rates reached 2.8 percent, the highest in over a decade.
The Trump administration announced on Monday, September 17, that it will be expanding tariffs to $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. The trade war is becoming more dangerous for Apple (AAPL). Trump’s tariffs threaten some of the tech giant’s gadget sales domestically, and the threat could worsen as Beijing weighs revenge measures that could target iPhone production in China.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped by more than 200 points in late-morning trade Wednesday, as the broader market appeared to shake off worries about U.S.-China tariff tensions. The Dow was up about 200 points, or 0.8%, at 26,444, putting the blue-chip benchmark less than 0.7% short of its all-time high of 26,616.71, which was hit on Jan. 26. The Dow is the only U.S. equity benchmark, among the big three, that hasn't put in a new peak since stocks, including the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index , slumped sharply beginning in early February.
The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrials Average rose on Wednesday, helped by upbeat housing data and a gain for bank stocks driven by rising Treasury yields, while a drop in Microsoft pressured the tech-heavy Nasdaq. The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield moved back above the symbolic 3 percent mark on Tuesday and hit its highest in four months on Wednesday, while two-year rates reached 2.8 percent, the highest in over a decade.
An exchange-traded fund that tracks the S&P 500 but weights each of the index's components equally hit a record on Wednesday, in the latest sign that the market's uptrend has been fairly broad-based. The Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF rose 0.2% on Wednesday and was on track for its second straight record close. The fund is up 7% thus far this year, below the 8.7% rise of the unadjusted S&P 500 , where the influence of each individual component on the overall index is dictated by their market capitalization. The S&P overall has been supported in large part by the outperformance of large-cap technology and internet stocks, a group often referred to as the FAANG stocks. The concentration of those gains have had some investors concerned about market breadth, but the rally in the equal-weighted ETF suggests a good deal of the market is participating in the rally. Since the start of July, 10 of the 11 S&P 500 sectors are in positive territory. Recent gains in the market have come as investors shrug off signs of escalating tensions between the U.S. and China on trade policy, focusing instead on strong corporate profits and improving economic data. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.6% on Wednesday while the S&P rose 0.1%. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.3%, pressured by weakness in tech stocks.
BAML (Bank of America Merrill Lynch) conducted a survey that polled 244 global investors with $742 billion in total assets under management from September 7–13. The divergence theme in equity markets was quite evident in the allocations in September. The equity allocations to emerging markets (EEM) fell to 10% underweight in September compared to 1% underweight in August.
Shares of online streaming giant Netflix (NFLX) rose 5% on September 18. The stock is currently trading at $367.65, 108% above its 52-week low of $176.55 and 13% below its 52-week high of $423.21.
U.S. stocks opened higher on Wednesday, as investors brushed aside the latest blows in Washington and Beijing's trade war. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 40.88 points, or 0.16 percent, at the open ...
U.S. stocks opened flat to slightly higher Wednesday, a day after a rally that left major indexes near all-time highs as investors looked past rising U.S.-China trade tensions to remain focused on strong economic fundamentals. The S&P 500 rose 0.2% to 2,910.61, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained around 104 points to trade near 26,350, a gain of 0.4%. The Nasdaq Composite was up 0.2% at 7,970.27.
Stocks seem ready for a relatively quiet day, with major indexes drifting slightly lower ahead of the open as trade remains the main investor focus.
One of the supposedly biggest risks facing the U.S. stock market is so far proving to be a non-starter.
Risk appetite, alongside lingering inflation concerns, lifts 10-year U.S. Treasury yields to a four-month high of 3.07%: data shows China's holdings slip to a seven-month low in July. Crude prices hold gains amid speculation that OPEC members may not increase production in order to offset the impact of sanctions on the sale of Iranian crude. U.S. stocks futures suggest more gains for Wall Street today, with contracts tied to the Dow indicating a 58-point rise at the opening bell.
High-dividend “safety” stocks are leading U.S. stock indexes’ latest assault on record highs, the most recent sign of how a nine-year-long market rally is reshaping longstanding investor behaviors. This month, the biggest gainers in the S&P 500 include firms focusing on telecommunications services, consumer staples and utilities—so-called safe sectors whose steady dividend payouts have long made them investor favorites when markets are volatile or declining.
