    US equities traded higher on Monday as investors blocked out rising coronavirus case counts and focused on positive housing-market data. Pending home sales shot 44.3% higher in May, the National Association of Realtors announced Monday. The reading trounced the median economist estimate of 19.3%, according to Bloomberg. The association's metric now sits at 99.6, slightly lower than its pre-virus high of 111.4 but hinting at a steady recovery for the critical sector. The leap "goes to show the resiliency of American consumers and their evergreen desire for homeownership," Lawrence Yun, NAR's chief economist, said. "This bounce back also speaks to...

    U.S. stock benchmarks shook off sharp opening losses Monday to stage the sharpest reversal since late March, with stocks closing higher after the Federal Reserve said it would expand an existing stimulus program to allow it to buy individual corporate bonds. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.61% added 158 points, 0.6%, to close near 25,763, after being down by as many as 762 points, or nearly 3%; while the S&P 500 SPX, +0.83% rose 25 points or 0.8%, to close near 3,067.

    Stocks rose sharply Friday after the U.S. May jobs report showed a surprise 2.5 million jump in payrolls and a drop in the unemployment rate to 13.3% as businesses began to reopen from the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. How are benchmarks performing? The Dow Jones Industrial Average US:DJIA jumped 950 points, or 3.6%, to 27,226, while the S&P 500 US:SPX rose 88 points, or 2.9%, to 3,201.

    U.S. stock futures and European shares rose Wednesday on optimism that economic activity is gathering steam and authorities may offer more stimulus to bolster the recovery. Futures tied to the S&P 500 rose 1.2%, suggesting that the gauge’s 1.2% rally on Tuesday may be extended after the New York opening bell. European stocks also ticked higher, with the pan-continental Stoxx Europe 600 advancing almost 1%. Investors are cheering signs that the White House and Congress are considering more measures to blunt the impact of historic levels of unemployment on the economy.

    U.S. stocks soared higher Thursday as the government came closer to approving a $2 trillion stimulus package to combat the coronavirus pandemic, capping a three-day rally that has pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average into a bull market. The Dow industrials finished the day up 1351.62 points, or 6.4%, to close at 22,552.17, launching the blue-chip index back into bull market territory. The jump ends an 11-day bear market for the index—the shortest in history for the index—which reached its bear-market low just three days ago. The rapid plunge out of, and then back into, a bull market underscores just...

    While our nation fights the novel coronavirus for our health and physical well-being many Americans are also waging a daily battle in the financial markets as we see historic and unprecedented volatility. Many investors can only be left in a constantly shifting cycle of awe, confusion, and grief as one day the Dow Jones Industrial Average drops 1,000-2,000 points, jumps up similarly or the same, and so on and so forth. Monday saw perhaps the worst of that as the 10% rally from the Friday prior faded as the day closed the day down almost 3,000 points.  In some ways...

    Stocks ended sharply higher after a volatile session Friday as Wall Street rebounded from the deep losses suffered in the previous session, the worst since the Black Monday market crash in 1987. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 1,985 points, or 9.3%. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq also surged 9.3%. The averages posted their biggest one-day gains since October 2008.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly surpassed 29,000 on Friday for the first time, setting a new record. The index hit the record earlier in the session following a moderate December jobs report, which found 145,000 new jobs created in 2019 and the unemployment rate staying unchanged at 3.5 percent, the lowest level in nearly 50 years. The Dow then retreated and was down slightly as of late morning. President Trump has frequently touted strong stocks as a sign of a booming economy, which he has made a central theme in his case for reelection. He has also cited the...
  • The stock market’s huge rally to start 2020 means it will take the average worker a record 114 hours to buy one unit of the S&P 500 now at all-time high

    Stocks are lurching toward fresh records to commence the first trading day in 2020, but that advance has raised some questions about the run-up in values for broad-market U.S. equity benchmarks. Indeed, the S&P 500’s recent gains have taken it to its priciest level relative to its hourly cost for the average worker on record. By that measure, Tuesday’s climb by the S&P 500 SPX, +0.84% to a peak at 3,250.04 would mean that the average employee, at an hourly wage of $28.29, would need to work 114.88 hours to buy a single unit of the index, representing one of...

    Stocks were on track Thursday to set fresh closing records, unfazed by President Donald Trump’s impeachment and finding support in the interim U.S.-China trade deal and improvements in the global economic outlook. What are stock indexes doing? The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, rose 125 points, or 0.4%, to 28,364, while the S&P 500 index SPX gained 13 points, or 0.4%, at 3,204. The Nasdaq Composite index COMP added 51 points, a gain of 0.6%, at 8,879. All three major benchmark stock indexes set new intraday highs Thursday morning.

    Before the Fed lowered its target interest rate range on Wednesday, Donald Trump was already on Twitter, touching on two of his favorite topics: how the Fed doesn't lower interest rates enough and that the stock market's performance is thanks to him and his Republican pals. The connection between a president and equity markets isn't straightforward. Many factors—the general health of the economy, investors sentiment, interest rates, financial stimulus, and global business conditions, for example—affect how stocks perform. But presidents also aren't unimportant. "Policies may or may not be helpful for economic growth," says Kenneth Orr, CEO of investment research...

    Stocks plunged on Wednesday after the yield on 30-year Treasurys dropped to a new low and the spread between two- and 10-year Treasurys inverted for the first time since 2007. The inversion of the yield curve compounded concerns of an economic slowdown in the US, as the occurrence has preceded each of the last seven recessions. Disappointing economic data from Germany and China caused the rally in global bonds as investors shifted away from equities toward the relative-safety of long-term treasuries. Visit the Markets Insider homepage for more stories.

    Recession talk flared up on Friday as the 10-year Treasury yield tumbled below that of the 3-month Treasury. While this signal has a spot-on track record in predicting a recession, there are reasons to take it with a grain of salt now. But another key economic indicator also flashed a worrying sign. The breakout of copper prices last month signaled that 2019 might be like 2016. That year saw the global economy rebound and the Dow Jones start a new leg to much greater heights. Yet that breakout failed on Friday, casting doubt on whether a new global upturn is...

    U.S. stocks posted slight gains on Wednesday after a volatile session kicked off 2019. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 18 points higher after dropping nearly 400 points earlier in the day. The S&P 500 gained 0.1 percent while the Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.46 percent. At their lows of the day, the S&P 500 were both down more than 1 percent. “Finally, we’re starting to see this buy-the-dip mentality creep into the market,” said Phil Blancato, CEO of Ladenburg Thalmann Asset Management. “It’s because of valuations and it’s because the underlying data has been pretty good so far, albeit a...
  • Apple loses spot as world's most valuable public company to Microsoft

    Microsoft is the most valuable publicly traded U.S. company, surpassing Apple for the title. Microsoft passed Apple in market cap again during intraday trading Friday, after jockeying for the top spot for most of the week. Microsoft surpassed Apple for seconds or minutes at a time all week, but Apple consistently beat out Microsoft in market valuation at market close. At Friday's close, Microsoft held an implied market valuation of $851.2 billion, based on an outstanding share count of 7,676,218,736 shares as of Oct. 19, according to the company's most recent SEC filing. Apple's market valuation, based on an outstanding...
