DJIA Down Slightly; S&P, Nasdaq Continue Rebound Week

Jacob Harper  |

The DJIA dipped slightly while the Nasdaq and S&P rose, marking a rebound from the prior week’s tech and bio sell-off. The rise is of special importance to the S&P, which briefly touched 1,870 before paring back slightly. As of the conclusion of Thursday’s action, the S&P is up 45 points on the week, notching its best week since July 2013.

International Business Machines ($IBM) and Unitedhealth Group (UNH) pulled the Dow into the red, with both companies shedding over 3 percent on heavy volume, countering DJIA compatriot General Electric’s (GE) 1.68 percent uptick.

However, SanDisk Corp.’s (SNDK) led a broad recovery for tech with exceptional earnings, gaining 9.41 percent. Competitor Micron Technologies (MU) followed suit, gaining 6.36 percent. Netflix Inc. (NFLX) was also well in the black on the day, rising 4.32 percent
