Business News and Information Earnings Recap Week Ending September 14th, 2017

NEW YORK, September 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

U.S. stocks were on track to rise for the fourth consecutive day, lifted by strong tech stocks growth and reports over easing trade tensions with China. The U.S. recently reached out to China to continue new negotiations regarding tariffs. The move for fresh negotiations is meant to give Beijing another chance to address the U.S.'s trade concerns before President Donald Trump implements his USD 200 Billion tariff on Chinese exports. The strong bull week continued to drive forward after Apple Inc.'s Keynote event. At the event, Apple featured its latest upcoming products: the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. The Dow Jones Industrial Average posted triple-digit growth, increasing 223.42 points. The S&P 500 gained 1.72 points or 3%, while the Nasdaq Composite gained 110.22 points or 1.3%. Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: ADBE), Sonos, Inc. (NASDAQ: SONO), The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), Pivotal Software, Inc. (NYSE: PVTL), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL).  

"There are a lot of variables out there. Some are positive, like earnings growth, while others are negative, like the U.S. Dollar. Those crosscurrents mean there's been no real direction in either way, and it makes September something of a scary month for me, because there's a lack of earnings data and I'm worried the market can be dragged down on light volume because of news flow surrounding tariffs," said John Thomas, Chief Investment Officer of Global Wealth Management said in a MarketWatch report. "I wouldn't [say] we're becoming immune to the issue, but we brush it off more every day, and I'm worried markets underappreciated the impact it could have on large-capitalization companies that export a lot. Complacent is a good term for how things stand right now; everyone expects the market to continue going up, and that's a concern."
