More earnings and more mixed reactions. Stocks spent parts of the trading session in both positive and negative territory, as shares of 3M weighed on the Dow while Microsoft’s shares gave the market average a boost. It has certainly, so far, been an earnings season of winners and losers, but with everything kind of evening out at the end.
For today, by the close the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 28 points to finish the day at 26,805. The S&P 500 was up 5 points to close at 3,010. Gold was up $9 to trade at $1,504 per ounce, while oil was up $.26 to trade at $56.23 per barrel WTI.
We’ll get the earnings of Amazon and Intel after the close today, and that should tee us up for tomorrow’s end of the week action. Let’s see how the week finishes out tomorrow.
Have a nice evening everyone.
