Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: The Walt Disney and Mattel

U.S. markets slumped Tuesday, with the Dow Jones breaking an 8-day win streak, as interest rates surged to new highs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.78 percent to close at 24,706.41, while the S&P 500 Index fell 0.68 percent to close at 2,711.45. The Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 0.81 percent to close at 7,351.63. The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note touched 3.09 percent, the highest since 2011.

“In and of itself, 3% isn’t significant, but it is psychologically important, and it comes at an uncertain time for the equity market,” said Stephen Wood, chief market strategist for Russell Investments, according to CNBC.

“We’ve been in a good economic environment, but one that’s aging, and we’ve been seeing good earnings growth, although that cycle is also aging. Fundamentals aren’t improving enough to justify valuations, and when one considers that with the backdrop of a Fed that’s raising interest rates, the market will start re-rating its risk profile. You can expect that to last for a while, and for markets to be a lot more volatile as it goes on.”
