Tuesday's Top Afternoon Analyst Calls: Peloton, Biogen, Square, Lockheed Martin and More

Over halfway through the trading day on Tuesday, and the broad markets have yet to make up their minds. For the most part, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones industrial average have been trading sideways, albeit a little negative. The Nasdaq has picked up slightly, and the Russell 2000 is having the best showing out of the group.

With Congress finally coming to a consensus about another round of stimulus for the economy, investors would think that markets would be rallying on this positive news. However, Tuesday has proven to be a real stock-picker’s day.
