    The market started out much lower today, as a dour retail sales report from the Commerce Department spooked investors. Too, a few key earnings reports impacted the market, as well. However, stock prices started to rebound, as traders started to question how much of the slowdown in sales was attributable to the government shutdown. Meanwhile, news surrounding a new government funding bill boosted sentiment. All told, the Dow finished lower by 104 points, while the S&P 500 was off by seven points, the NASDAQ bucked the trend, and was up seven points.

    Dow 30 Earnings: Coca-Cola Fourth Quarter 2018
    Robert M. Greene  |  02/14/2019
    The Coca-Cola Company's (KO) 2019 outlook left investors wanting more. On the positive side, the generally favorable trends in place throughout 2018 were again evident in the beverage giant's December-quarter results. Improvements in price and mix, for instance, helped to power 5% growth in organic revenues for both the fourth quarter and the full year. The company also showed progress revitalizing its portfolio of low- and no-calorie soft drinks, including the flagship Diet Coke brand, which halted a multiyear decline in retail value.

    The stock market opened higher this morning, but spent the rest of the session trading in a choppy fashion. Some of the strength during the day was likely due to optimism that a deal between the United States and China might soon be reached, and that another round of tariffs could be averted. At the end of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 118 points; the S&P 500 Index was up eight points; and the NASDAQ was higher by six points.
