Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Catalyst Biosciences and Valeant Pharmaceuticals

Progress of the recent tax bill hit a snag on Thursday as two GOP Senators raised some concerns. All sectors closed down on Thursday dragging markets lower, with the Healthcare and Materials contributing most losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.31 percent to close at 24,508.66, while the S&P 500 Index fell 0.41 percent to close at 2,652.01. The Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 0.28 percent to close at 6,856.53.

“This market has been going in lockstep with the progress made in the tax bill,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley FBR. “When you see bumps in the road, you’re going to get some volatility.”
