Yahoo Finance Live’s Brad Smith breaks down how stocks are moving after the opening bell.
- So Fisker ringing the opening bell here on this Tuesday morning. And I believe that we are going to be talking to Fisker later in the 11:00 AM hour. I think our [INAUDIBLE] is going to be speaking with him.
So we are seeing all three major averages opening in the green here on this holiday shortened trading week. So Brad what are we seeing on the move as we get underway?
BRAD SMITH: Yeah, as we kind of kick off today's trading activity, you've got the Dow Jones Industrial average. Let's populate that chart for you. It's up by about 0.6% here out of the gate. We've also got the NASDAQ composite up by about 0.3-0.4% here over the past two days. Still lower by about 0.7%. We'll see if we can reverse course there. And then, additionally, you've got the S&P 500, that in positive territory by about 0.5% right now.
Let's also take a look at some of the sector activity if we may here. We'll come back to that NASDAQ 100 very quickly in a moment. But you've got more advancers than laggards. Really only just one laggard-- or two laggards now.
Real estate and communication services are in the red. But 9 out of 11 S&P 500 sectors look to be in positive territory right now out of the gate here, led by energy. It's up by about 1.9%. Also, you've got some of the staples that look-- well, that's utilities, but staples a moment ago, which is what I intended to click on. That's up by about 0.7% here out of the gate as well.
And then getting back over to that NASDAQ 100, you've got more gainers than laggards as of right now. Let's just kind of put this in a broader heat map view here. And one of the biggest gainers here on the day, you've got Walgreens-Boots Alliance. But hey, look at this. You've also got, I believe, Analog Devices here.
Let me just try that one more time in my Vanna White style. All right. It's not going to work. Fingertips need a little calibration here. Look at-- look at Dollar Tree.
- I see ADI. It's up 4.3%. On the upper left there.
- Oh, there you go. It's working.
BRAD SMITH: Dollar Tree is down 6%. Yeah. Yeah, down by--
- We can only highlight bad news. Bad news.
- Clearly, that's what the fingertips need the calibration for.
