Stock Market Today

May 22, 2015

The U.S. stock market put in a somewhat weaker session today, as traders weighed a batch of decent corporate reports against concerns about rising consumer inflation and a possible interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve later this year. Further, the session had a quiet tone, as investors prepared for the three-day holiday weekend. At the end of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 54 points; the S&P 500 Index was lower by about five points; while the technology-heavy NASDAQ tried to cling to a small gain but closed off a point. Read more

    Sales Of Existing Homes Edge Lower In April

    Harvey S. Katz | 5/21/2015
    In the second of three major monthly housing reports (preceded last week by housing starts and followed next week by sales of new homes), the National Association of Realtors has just reported that sales of existing residences, or re-sales, eased by 3.3% last month, falling to 5.04 million homes sold on an annualized basis. That was down from the upwardly revised March sales pace of 5.21 million homes (earlier estimated at 5.19 million) and from expectations of 5.24 million properties expected to have been sold.

    May 21, 2015

At the end of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up less than a point; the S&P 500 Index was ahead five points; and the technology-heavy NASDAQ was up 19 points. Advancing stocks were just slightly ahead of decliners on the NYSE, which suggests that the session was somewhat divided. Notably, the energy sector took the leadership role, as the price of crude oil advanced 3%, moving back over the $60-a-barrel mark.
