May 4 – 8, 2020 Recap

Nasdaq Composite Turns Positive YTD
Stocks powered higher last week amid heady optimism that reopening American business may not cause a widespread resurgence in new COVID-19 cases. Moreover, Wall Street continues to speculate that Congress and the Federal Reserve will backstop additional economic damage. This belief is so strong that markets surged last Friday despite unemployment rising to the highest level in 72 years.

Weekly Performance
For the week, the Dow Industrials climbed 2.56%, the S&P 500 advanced 3.57%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite surged by 6.05%. The S&P 500 posted its first weekly gain in three weeks, and the Nasdaq Composite turned positive on a year-to-date (YTD) basis (+2.02%).
