Alphabet, Costco, FedEx, UPS and More Monday Afternoon Analyst Calls

With the trading day more than halfway over, the broad markets were somewhat mixed on the day. The Dow Jones industrial average was leading the charge higher with the S&P 500, but the Nasdaq was lagging behind with a loss. Each of these major indexes is within striking distance of all-time highs, and there are even more earnings coming this week.
