Right around the noon hour on the East Coast, the Dow is up a strong 140 points. Elsewhere, the S&P 500 and NASDAQ are not moving much, and market breadth is mixed, with gainers topping decliners on the NASDAQ, but vice-versa on the New York Stock Exchange. Read more

    October 17, 2017

    Harvey S. Katz, Mario Ferro, and Adam Rosner | 10/17/2017

    The stock market put in a mixed performance today, as traders digested the latest batch of corporate profit reports. At the close of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 40 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was up two points; and the NASDAQ was nominally lower. Market breadth was slightly negative, as declining issues outnumbered advancers by a narrow margin on the NYSE. From a sector perspective, the healthcare and utility issues showed some leadership, while the financials, energy, and basic materials issues retreated.

However, market breadth suggested a somewhat divided showing, as advancers and decliners were just about even on the NYSE. From a sector point of view, the technology, financial, and energy names displayed some leadership, while the healthcare stocks and the utilities declined modestly.
