Citigroup Stock, JPMorgan Gain on Earnings, Apple Amazon Rise. Dow Still Falls.

Text size

Stock indexes were modestly lower Tuesday after a big Monday for technology shares. There was some bad news on the Covid-19 vaccine front and little progress toward a fiscal stimulus bill in Washington, but most of Tuesday’s action was on the individual stock level, as third-quarter earnings season kicks off.

On Tuesday morning, the

Dow Jones Industrial Average

fell 110 points, or 0.4%, the

S&P 500

also dipped 0.4%, and the

Nasdaq Composite

ticked down less than 0.1%.

It was a contrast to Monday, when stocks jumped on little news during a light Columbus Day holiday and the technology-heavy Nasdaq rallied 2.6% to its third-highest close in history.

Contributing to the lackluster trading on Tuesday was an announcement from

Johnson & Johnson

(ticker: JNJ) on Monday night that it paused its trial of a coronavirus vaccine after an unexplained illness in a trial participant.

It isn’t uncommon for

Daily Markets: Stocks Face Earnings Showdown Amid Apple and Amazon Events

Today’s Big Picture

The major equity indices in Asia closed mostly in the green today. Trading in Hong Kong was suspended due to Typhoon Nangka – because it is still 2020. China’s Shenzhen Component rose 0.7%, Japan’s Nikkei closed up 0.2%, South Korea’s Kospi closed slightly below flat, and Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 rose 1.0%. By midday trading, European equities were mostly in the red, and U.S. equity futures point to a mixed session at the open.

Investors have a full plate ahead of them today that includes a helping of corporate earnings as the September quarter earnings season gets underway and the two high profile events that are Apple’s (AAPL) “Hi, Speed” event and Amazon’s (AMZN) 2020 Prime Day event. The accompanying side dishes for this full course will be the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, potential new pandemic restrictions, and fiscal stimulus conversations in Washington.
