Stock Market Today: May 6, 2021

5/6/2021 9:18:11 AM The penultimate trading day of the first week of May will have investors looking to the business beat for direction.

In the first release, the Commerce Department noted that personal income and consumer spending both moved up strongly in March, and in line with expectations.

4/27/2021 9:15:32 AM As we look to the new day,U.S. stock futures are suggesting the major indexes will have a mixed open. Earnings season remains in high gear, and so far, results in general have been good, with aggregate earnings showing their biggest quarterly advance in more than a decade.

Leading the way were shares of electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), retail giant Amazon (AMZN), and iconic iPhone maker Apple Inc. (AAPL). The Dow Jones Industrial Average also posted a strong advance for much of the session before wilting near the close to end barely in positive territory.

3/3/2021 8:05:06 AM After entering March like a lion, with a better-than-600-point surge in the Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday, things quieted down to a more lamb-like performance yesterday. Bond yields stabilized and there was little of note on the economic front. So, stocks mainly drifted lower, with more early weakness in the NASDAQ than on either the Dow or the S&P 500. Stocks then closed on a major down note.
