Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: United States Steel and Peabody Energy
U.S. markets closed up on Wednesday, as investors appear to shrug off fears of increasing interest rate and bond yields. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.25 percent to close at 24,768.93, while the S&P 500 Index increased 0.41 percent to close at 2,722.46. The Nasdaq Composite Index climbed 0.63 percent to close at 7,398.30.
“For the 10-year, 3% isn’t a magical number that will pull investors out of stocks. With inflation and interest rates being where they are, we think stock valuations are about right. Equities certainly aren’t cheap, but valuations aren’t a big concern right now,” said Anthony Saglimbene, global market strategist at Ameriprise.
