REITs vs Stocks daily update – Oct 25, 2021
The stock market began the week at an all-time high, as they awaited big tech earnings for Q3. Tesla hit 1 trillion dollars market capitalization, climbing over $115.18 increase (12.66%) today per share now at $1,024.86. The 3 indexes are in the positive, Dow and S&P 500 set record and closing highs and Nasdaq gained.
Inflation pressures due to supply chain constraints are still top concern as Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell spoke about the topic, stating he expected this to last long than previously expected, well into next year.
The rest of this week will be all on the earnings reports and performance of the big tech companies, Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon. So far, about 23% of the S&P500 companies have reported earnings results and the boost in the stock market or declines will be based on these companies for the next few weeks (article).
