Print Email

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is holding below 21,000 and the S&P 500 is steady right around 2,375. While the Dow had closed higher for weeks, it seems that this recent pullback has been a solidifying factor for the markets. Also notable, the Dow and S&P 500 closed Monday continuing their 109-day streak without a drop of 1% or more, which is the seventh longest of all time for the Dow and the ninth longest for the S&P.

Although we are currently in the earnings doldrums, quarterly reports over the past month have helped to solidify the broad markets. 24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of some of those companies reporting their latest results on Tuesday. Keep in mind that a vast majority of companies already have reported their earnings for the most recent quarter, but there are still a few stragglers left before the next season kicks into gear.
