Mixed results with concerns about effects of pandemic versus strong corporate earnings

Market session for Wednesday ended mixed with both S&P 500 and the Dow below the red line, while NASDAQ stayed and wrapped on a positive note.
WAN CHAI, Hong Kong - Aug. 12, 2021 - PRLog -- S&P retreated from a record level set on Tuesday, and was greatly affected by the resurging concerns over the possible effects of the Delta variant to the economic recovery.

Added to this is the not-so-impressive report about the private sector's payroll growth for July, which was less than half of the estimates. This payroll data is being used by the Federal Reserve as indicator of the status of the economy, which right now can only be considered not up to par yet. The only thing stopping the market from a meltdown is the optimism brought by wonderful Q2 earnings results of the majority.

Corporate earnings continue to impress as more major companies posted their earnings report that easily exceeds Wall Street estimates. Lyft managed to follow through with their adjusted guidance and hit their mark with the economic activity picking up. Gas and oil companies are also making a killing due to resurging demand.
