U.S. Stocks Push Higher as Banks Gain; Dollar Rises

U.S. equities pushed higher, led by gains in financials and industrial companies, after Morgan Stanley earnings beat forecasts, helping to offset a slide in tech stalwarts such as Apple and Microsoft.

With Morgan Stanley’s results Wednesday, the six largest U.S. banks have reported second-quarter earnings that mostly surpassed estimates, helping to push the S&P 500 Financials Index 2.8 percent higher since Friday. The dollar strengthened as Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell testified before Congress on the U.S. economy after delivering an upbeat assessment Tuesday, helping spur declines in raw materials prices and emerging-market currencies.

The S&P 500 Index rose 0.3 percent of 11:50 a.m. in New York. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.2 percent. The Nasdaq Composite Index slumped less than 0.1 percent from a record high of 7,855.12.

Dow Marks 4th Straight Gain as Stocks Finish Broadly Higher

U.S. stock on Tuesday closed firmly higher and the technology-heavy Nasdaq notched a fresh record after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell indicated that the U.S. central bank would continue raising benchmark rates due the the health of the economy but would execute its monetary-policy strategy at a prudent pace.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 0.2% at 25,119 (on a preliminary basis), marking its fourth straight positive finish in succession.

The blue-benchmark’s gains were buoyed by a rally in component Johnson & Johnson which reported second-quarter earnings and revenue that were better than expected. Shares of the consumer-goods company gained 3.5% and contributed the lion’s share of the equity index’s Tuesday advance.

The S&P 500 index closed up 0.4% at 2,809, while the Nasdaq Composite Index booked an all-time closing high, with a gain of 0.6% at 7,855.

Providing testimony in front of the Senate Banking Committee, Powell said the “best way forward is to keep gradually raising the federal-funds rate for now.” He will appear before a House committee on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, economic reports supported the upbeat mood amid second-quarter corporate results that have mostly come out better than expected. Industrial production rose 0.6% in June to more than offset a similarly sized decline in May, the Federal Reserve said Tuesday.
