- Featured CommentariesMarket Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: October 7, 2015Harvey S. Katz, Adam Rosner, Robert Mitkowski | 10/07/2015Wall Street turned in a constructive session today ahead of the start of earnings season. There was some volatility, though, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped some 170 points shortly after the opening bell, only to see those gains turn into modest losses later in the morning. But the Dow regrouped and, at the close, ended 122 points higher. Elsewhere, the NASDAQ gained 43 points and the S&P 500 was better by 16 points. Market breadth told a broadly favorable story, with more than three stocks advancing for every declining issue on the New York Stock Exchange.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: October 6, 2015Harvey S. Katz, Adam Rosner, William G. Ferguson | 10/06/2015It was a mixed to slightly weaker day of trading on Wall Street, following a pair of outsized wins. The large-cap dominated Dow Jones Industrial Average was helped by strong showings from a few of its blue-chip stocks, while the broader S&P 500 Index and the technology heavy NASDAQ were hurt by a weak performance from the healthcare sector.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: October 5, 2015William G. Ferguson, Adam Rosner, Simon Shnayder | 10/05/2015The major U.S. stock market indexes began the week on an optimistic note, opening notably higher and steadily adding to these gains throughout the day. This extension of Fridays large reversal came as investors continued to digest the exceptionally weak monthly nonfarm payrolls report, particularly with respect to its implications on the timing of an interest-rate hike by the Federal Reserve.StockHighlightsTiffany: A Short SWOT AnalysisJustin Hellman | 10/05/2015Tiffany (TIF) shares have lost a fair amount of luster in 2015, declining more than 25% in value year to date. The strong U.S. dollar has been the main culprit, as it has reduced spending by foreign tourists, particularly at the companys New York City flagship store (approximately 8% of the top line). Indeed, the currency pressures have hurt same-store sales in the core domestic market, and offset benefits from price increases and a favorable commodity input environment.Market CommentariesThe September Employment Report Was A Major DisappointmentHarvey S. Katz, CFA | 10/02/2015Wall Street traders and investors, hoping for a strong employment increase in September, were rudely disappointed, as the pace of job creation slowed dramatically last month. Specifically, expectations had been for a payroll gain of 200,000; instead, the number came in at just 142,000. The statistics were furnished by the U.S. Labor Department.
