Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Gilead Sciences and Geron Corporation

U.S. markets fell Tuesday on slumping commodity prices, with U.S. crude oil posting its largest one day drop in over a month. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.13 percent to close at 23,409.47, while the S&P 500 Index fell 0.23 percent to close at 2,578.87. The Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 0.29 percent to close at 6,737.87. On Tuesday, the International Energy Agency said the recent rally in crude oil prices could be short-lived and global demand will be weaker-than-expected for the rest of the year and next.

“Since Friday, the theme has been deleveraging and taking risk off the table,” said Larry Peruzzi, managing director of international equity trading at Mischler Financial, according to The Wall Street Journal. “Part of it has been profit-taking and part of it has been uncertainty with taxes and Washington.”
