S&P 500 Posts Seventh Weekly Gain in Past Nine Weeks
Equities rebounded last week with all three major U.S. equity indices finishing at fresh all-time highs as better-than-expected earnings trumped early-week concerns over rising Delta variant caseloads. On Monday, the viral scare drove the Dow Industrials down 725 points for its worst single-day loss of 2021 but by Tuesday, earnings optimism ignited a four-day rebound that was led most from stay-at-home themed companies.
For the Week...
The S&P 500 advanced 1.97% to clinch its 40th record high this year. The Dow Industrials netted a 1.08% gain, topping 35,000 for the first time. Notably, the Dow marked its fastest 5,000-point runup, taking just 165 trading days to reach 35K from 30K. Lastly, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite surged 2.84%.
