Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: NXP Semiconductors and QUALCOMM

Wall Street closed up on Thursday as tech shares rallied and trade tensions eased on the hopes of a fresh round of trade talks that could potentially take place later this month. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 0.57 percent to close at 26,145.99, while the S&P 500 Index jumped 0.53 percent to close at 2,904.18. The Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.75 percent to close at 8,013.71.

“Markets today are moving primarily on China trade [and] tariff news,” according to Mark Esposito, chief executive of Esposito Securities in Dallas. “U.S. officials reaching out to China saying they would be amenable to additional trade talks later this month—that’s all it took to get and keep the Dow up triple digits,” Esposito added.
