Stocks Rise on Earnings as Tech Rallies Oil Gains By Bloomberg
U.S. stocks rose a third day, while emerging-market equities hit the highest in a decade as synchronized global growth boosts corporate profits. Crude oil jumped as the dollar fell.
The S&P 500 Index closed at a fresh record as the strong start to earnings continued, with 82 percent firms that have reported topping estimates. Tech shares lifted the Nasdaq 100 Index to a fifth straight gain and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index powered to an eighth day of advances. The 10-year Treasury yield fell for a second session, while the dollar dropped toward lows of the year.
“The earnings season is going phenomenally well, and the government shutdown on Friday was reversed yesterday, so we’ve got the government behind us for the next couple of weeks,” Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors, said by phone. “But the reason the stock market is up is very simply that investors are reflecting on the fact that earnings are much better than expected.”
With earnings season in full swing, investors held to the risk-on stance that’s taken stocks around the world higher. The synchronized global economic recovery shows no signs of slowing and the BOJ’s signal added to optimism that central banks won’t rush to tap the brakes. Investors also kept an eye on Davos, Switzerland, where the world’s business elites gathered for an annual conference roiled by protectionist moves across the Atlantic.
Here’s what to watch out for this week:
Earnings season is in full swing: Novartis, General Electric, Intel, LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Starbucks and Hyundai Motor all come later in the week.
Barring any last minute changes in Washington, President Donald Trump will join world leaders and senior executives in Davos, Switzerland, for the annual World Economic Forum.
