Analyst Update: Stocks Hitting New High on Quarterly Earnings
Reviewed by: Rohit Tuli, CFA®
Snapping two-day long winning streak, the U.S. benchmark indices ended lower on Wednesday as the European Central Bank (ECB) tightened restrictions on Greece's bailout and as oil prices retreated after four consecutive sessions. While the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended almost flat for the day, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite indexes finished lower by 0.42% and 0.23%, respectively. The ECB on Wednesday said that it would no longer accept junk-rated Greece government debt as collateral for loans. The move came as a huge blow to the Greece's new government which has been seeking to renegotiate the terms of bailout with its lenders. Meanwhile, European stocks rose for the third straight session on Wednesday, helped by rise in the health care stocks and the Greece market which also overshadowed the decline in energy stocks. Asian stocks mostly ended higher on Wednesday, tracking gains in the European and the US markets.
