- Featured CommentariesMarket Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: January 20, 2017Harvey S. Katz, Adam Rosner, and Robert Harrington | 01/20/2017U.S. stocks spent most of the morning well into positive territory, a welcome change of pace from the cautious tone that has typified most of the week. Though earnings season is under way, and updated select economic data were released throughout the week, todays inauguration ceremony has been the primary concern for investors. But, as trading began and the bears and bulls jostled for control, the latter asserted dominance.StockHighlightsDow 30 Earnings: General Electric Fourth Quarter 2016Erik M. Manning | 01/20/2017Industrial conglomerate General Electric (GE) has reported results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2016. The company's showing fell short on the revenue side of the coin, but was about on par with Wall Street's reduced expectations on the earnings front. Troubles in the oil & gas patch were the top line's primary challenge, though a coming merger with Baker Hughes should help in that regard.StockHighlightsDow 30 Earnings: American Express Fourth Quarter 2016Ian Gendler | 01/20/2017American Express (AXP), a Dow-30 component and one of the world's largest providers of credit cards, has reported December-period financial results. For the quarter, share earnings were $0.88, which was well below our expectation, as well as Wall Street's consensus estimate. Increased marketing and promotional expenses were the main culprits behind the lower-than-expected earnings. What's more, revenues came in at $8.0 billion, which was 4% below the year-earlier tally.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: January 19, 2017Harvey S. Katz and William G. Ferguson | 01/19/2017The U.S. equity market started todays session much like it did yesterday, which was in directionless fashion. Perhaps it was a combination of no major pre-market news on either the earnings front or the economythe Federal Reserves latest Beige Book summation of economic conditions (released yesterday afternoon) did not show any material change in the performance of the U.S. economyand some possible hesitation on the part of investors to make any major moves ahead of tomorrows inauguration address by the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: January 18, 2017Harvey S. Katz, William G. Ferguson, and Robert Harrington | 01/18/2017U.S. stocks mostly continued on the same directionless path forged during morning trading, as investors await Fridays inauguration ceremony and parse through newly released data. Advancing and declining shares were roughly equal throughout the day, while half of the major market sectors reported gains at the end of the session. The indexes were mixed, and largely range-bound, further suggesting a holding pattern by investors before Donald. J. Trump takes office.
