April 27 – May 1, 2020 Recap
Stocks Finish Week Fractionally Lower
Stocks erased all their gains for the week amid sharp losses Friday after a pair of mega-cap tech bellwether companies reported less-than-ideal first quarter earnings and warned of uncertainty ahead. Despite some month-end selling on Thursday, the S&P 500 wrapped up its strongest month in 33 years and the Dow Industrials had its best April performance since 1938.
For the week, the Dow Industrials fell 0.22%, the S&P 500 slipped 0.19%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite trimmed gains by 0.33%.
