Wednesday, October 20, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -6.00 0.02% 35,317 S&P 500 -0.25 0.02% 4,510 Nasdaq 3.50 0.02% 15,401 U.S. equity futures are mostly flat across the board ahead of another busy morning of quarterly earnings, with the recent 5-day winning streak bringing the S&P 500 to within 1% of its September all-time highs with solid corporate earnings offsetting persistent inflation concerns and a jump in Treasury bond yields. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury is at morning lows around 1.63% but falling from overnight highs of 1.67%. Surging energy prices, supply chain disruptions and labor shortages are adding cost and margin pressures to a host of companies this earnings season. In earnings overnight, Netflix (NFLX) is little changed after a quarterly beat while airline UAL rises on a narrower loss. U.S. stocks climbed on Tuesday as large cap companies continued to report strong third-quarter earnings. The S&P 500 index posted its 5th straight day of gains, led by healthcare and technology stocks as the NYFANG posted a record-high close. That said, with 10 of 11 major S&P 500 sectors higher on the day, value actually slightly outperformed growth. The Dow rose 0.57%, the S&P 500 was up 0.74% and the Nasdaq moved up 0.71%. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 40 points to 29,255, the Shanghai Index slipped a few points to 3,587, and the Hang Seng Index jumped 348 points to 26,136.

Early Look Friday, May 21, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 130.00 0.38% 34,158 S&P 500 13.25 0.32% 4,167 Nasdaq 33.00 0.24% 13,519 U.S. stocks are looking higher to end the week, adding to yesterday’s massive gains that saw major averages snap their 3-day losing streak, led by technology shares as Treasury yields remained subdued and on increased economic optimism after Americans filing for first-time unemployment benefits fell last week to a pandemic low of 444,000. It was another “buy the dip” reaction for major averages as the S&P avoided its longest losing streak since February with yesterday’s advance. Oil prices are looking higher, trying to snap its 3-day losing streak, while gold is little changed after a strong week of gains. Inflation fears still linger for markets as pricing fears remain as the economy improves, keeping gains in check for now. The U.S. Treasury, meanwhile, proposed a minimum global corporate tax rate of 15%, lower than earlier proposals of 21% that received pushback from other countries. Crypto currencies are steady after three days of extreme volatility. Yesterday’s big Nasdaq gains (1.77%) gave it a chance to avoid its fifth straight weekly decline heading into the trading week, which would be its longest in nine years (is up 0.8% heading into today). In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 219 points to 28,317, the Shanghai Index slipped -20 points to 3,486, the Hang Seng Index edged higher 8 points to 28,458. In Europe, the German DAX is up about 25 points to 15,394, while the FTSE 100 is little changed at 7,015.
