Stock market news

Latest stock market news for May 15, 2020. “U.S. stocks rose as traders looked past trade jitters and weak economic data. Treasuries fell. Oil jumped.

The S&P 500 erased losses, but still posted its worst week since March 20 — just before the gauge started a torrid rally. Sorrento Therapeutics soared 158% amid coronavirus antibody development claims. J.C. Penney surged 21% after saying it made an almost $17 million interest payment due May 7. Earlier Friday, stocks slumped as retail sales and factory output registered their steepest declines on record.”
