Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Sangamo Therapeutics and ZIOPHARM Oncology

U.S. equities rebounded on Wednesday, lifted by strong performance from the energy sector and worries over Italy’s political crisis eased. The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 1.26 percent to close at 24,667.78, while the S&P 500 Index climbed 1.27 percent to close at 2,724.01. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 0.89 percent to close at 7,462.45.

“The fact that the market is shrugging off Italy’s political drama suggests that maybe it was a crowded trade that was being unwound and not something more serious,” said Michael Antonelli, equity sales trader at Robert W. Baird & Co.

“Anything coming from the left field can shatter markets nowadays, so we have to brace for a long summer grind,” Antonelli added.
