Stock market news today
“Stocks traded mixed Tuesday, paring earlier declines with stimulus talks in Washington, updates on the Covid-19 vaccine front and corporate earnings results front and center.
A host of major companies and index components reported results Tuesday morning, offering a mixed picture of the corporate landscape amid the ongoing pandemic. Dow member McDonald’s (MCD) reported second-quarter profit that missed expectations, as comparable same-restaurant sales slid 23.9% due to store closures. Pfizer (PFE), on the other hand, reported better than expected results and raised its outlook for full-year sales, with the pharmaceutical giant anticipating more in-person meetings between doctors and patients in the second half of the year. Harley-Davidson (HOG) reported its first loss in more than a decade, as two months’ worth of virus-related production halts drove a 59% slump in the motorcycle-maker’s shipments.”
