“Stocks post fourth straight monthly gain as tech shares surge.

Stocks closed out Friday’s trading session and July on a high note, with the Nasdaq outperforming after a slew of better than expected corporate earnings results from major tech firms like Facebook and Apple, which both posted record closing highs.

Friday’s session marked the last of July, with each of the three major indices closing out a fourth straight month of gains. The S&P 500 rose about 5%, the Dow increased 2% and the Nasdaq outperformed, rising more than 6.5% on the month.

Tech titans Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), each reported quarterly results that blew past estimates Thursday evening, affirming their pandemic-era dominance that’s helped feed a steep run-up in tech stocks over the past couple months.”
