S&P Rides Apple’s Surge to Record High as Tech Melt Up Continues

The S&P closed at a record high on Friday, as an Apple-infused rally in tech and positive economic data prompted investors to raise their bullish bets on stocks.  The S&P 500 closed 0.42% higher at a record 3,395, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.69%, or 190 points. while the Nasdaq Composite gained 0.42% to close at another record. 

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) surged 5%, leading the charge higher for the tech sector despite losses in other big tech names such as Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), and Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). The surge in Apple comes just months to go until the release of its new slate of 5G-enabled iPhones, which many expect will be a game-changer for the upgrade cycle. 

“Our recent Asia supply chain checks conducted by our TMT team show a discernible uptick in forecasts for iPhone 12, which bodes well for demand trends heading into this highly anticipated October launch,” Wedbush said in a note. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) was also in focus, rising more than 2% to a new high at $2,049 as it prepares for a five-for-one stock split – a move that will make the stock more affordable for retail investors.

Energy, however, proved an exception to the day’s move higher as oil prices slipped on concerns that a slower pace of economic recovery could hurt demand. But not every sector of the economy is flagging a potential slowdown. Housing remains robust, while a survey on business activity also surprised to the upside.

The Commerce Department said existing home sales rose by a record 24.7% in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.86 million units., topping forecasts for a 14.7% rise. “Given the continued plunge in mortgage rates, there is probably further upside for demand in August,” Jefferies (NYSE:JEF) said. – By Yasin Ebrahim

    Needed to draft you a bit of remark to be able to say thank you over again for the incredible information you have featured above. It was quite strangely generous with people like you giving publicly exactly what a number of people could possibly have made available for an electronic book to earn some cash for themselves, most notably given that you could possibly have done it if you desired. Those inspiring ideas as well acted to become good way to be certain that other people online have the identical passion just like my personal own to know lots more with regards to this problem. Certainly there are several more pleasurable times in the future for individuals who read your site.
