Fundamentals and News

U.S. Stocks Rise on Earnings as Treasuries Slump

U.S. technology stocks rallied to fresh records amid optimism over corporate results, while major indexes ended mixed on tepid economic data and comments by President Donald Trump on banking structure. Treasuries fell as Steven Mnuchin suggested ultralong bonds can“absolutely” make sense.

The Nasdaq Composite Index closed at an all-time high, while a late-session dip left the S&P 500 Index barely higher on the day. Trump roiled markets when he told Bloomberg News that he’s considering breaking up giant Wall Street banks. The dollar was flat as consumer spending stalled in March and factories expanded less than estimated. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note jumped five basis points as the Treasury secretary said his department is considering debt longer than 30 years. Oil dropped to a one-month low.

Trump’s interview with Bloomberg whipsawed markets as he suggested raising the gas tax to fund infrastructure and reintroducing rules that keep commercial and investment banking operations separate. Earnings remain in focus, with 73 percent of S&P 500 firms topping profit estimates, with tech shares outperforming. Data Monday contributed to a mixed picture of the American economy even as measures of consumer and business sentiment point to acceleration. The agreement to keep the government funded erased a near-term threat.

Gold futures slid 1 percent to settle at $1,255.50 an ounce, the lowest close since April 10. The metal declined 1.3 percent last week, paring a yearly advance to 10 percent.

Comex copper for July delivery rose 2 percent to settle at $2.6605 a pound, touching a three-week high as the dollar weakened.

West Texas Intermediate crude fell 1 percent to settle at $48.84 a barrel as Libyan output surged, more rigs were added in the U.S. and Saudi Arabia cut prices to Asian customers.

Oil lost 2.5 percent in April, and is down almost 9 percent this year.
