U.S. stock futures fell to start the day following a late-Monday reversal — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.
The Dow Jones went from a 488-point deficit to close up 238 points on Monday, or 0.7%. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also made up for their early losses, finishing Monday 0.6% and 1.3% higher, respectively.
These big drops might seem like cause for alarm, but when the markets start out lower and close higher, it’s a bullish sign. And when the markets start the day up before heading lower, it’s a bearish sign.
PepsiCo Inc. (Nasdaq: PEP) delivered better-than-expected results and raised its full-year forecast just one day after competitor The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO) beat estimates and maintained guidance.
We also have earnings coming from some of the biggest tech companies on the schedule for this week — Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) — so expect some volatility.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn how volatility is impacting earnings season… the biggest reports to pay attention to this week… why the bond market is moving sideways… an update on market internals and why they’re spiking… an update on the global economy and its impact on the U.S… plus the top stock in the top sector, and the bottom stock in the bottom sector.
