Airbnb, Boeing, Cloudflare, United Airlines and More Tuesday Afternoon Analyst Calls

With the trading day about halfway over, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq edged out record intraday highs, but the day is not done yet. Inflation data came out earlier in the morning as well, with the Consumer Price Index showing over a 5% increase year over year, which may have some investors stunned. Major banks Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan also were trading lower in the session after reporting earnings.
