Stock Market Today

October 20, 2017

After yesterday’s mixed tone to trading, the bulls stormed back on Friday. Each of the major large-cap indexes opened higher, rising to all-time high levels throughout the day. Though a generally positive trend from third-quarter earnings season has helped to prop up the averages for most of the past few weeks, today’s uptick relied heavily on the prospect of tax reform. Still, earnings-related contributions from PayPal (PYPL) and the welcome late-in-the-day rebound of General Electric (GE) shares bolstered the optimistic tilt to the week’s final session.

    October 19, 2017

    Harvey S. Katz, CFA, William G. Ferguson, and Robert Harrington | 10/19/2017
    Amidst another day of roughly even market breadth, the major U.S. indexes spent most of Thursday’s sessionin negative territory. Each of the composites set all-time records yesterday, so many investors were happy to collect profits. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and broad-based S&P 500 groupings managed to climb above their respective breakeven lines in the final hour, with the former remaining comfortably above the just-breached 23,000-point threshold throughout the day.
