Market Update Into 5/3: Twitter Rains on Friday’s Parade of Stellar Earnings Reports

Bears are questioning whether they came out of hibernation too early, as NASDAQ marks six consecutive months of gains and the DOW, three. This was topped with record-breaking earnings reports up and down the board on Friday. Although most big tech companies posted impressive gains and earnings reports on Friday, quite a few found themselves in negative territory; flattening the trajectory of some ETFs and indexes. Twitter (one of note) posted a 12% drop on Friday; strangely, after reports of a 28% jump in earnings year on year. Some point to this as the harbinger of things to come for tech stocks, as the US emerges from COVID-19 restrictions and more people detach from their devices.
