Market wraps mixed mostly higher; tech stock rally to pull NASDAQ up

Investors studied new earnings data and a key inflation report, which indicated a faster-than-expected rise in prices across a wide range of items, still, stocks rose on at market wrap.
SHEUNG WAN, Hong Kong - Nov. 16, 2021 - PRLog -- The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both gained for the first time in four sessions, with technology stocks leading the way.

The third-quarter earnings season has also accelerated, with big businesses such as JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and BlackRock (BLK) releasing results before the market opens. JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the United States by assets, reported earnings that beat expectations on both the top and bottom lines, thanks to a larger-than-expected release of credit reserves and robust sales in the investment banking and equities trading divisions.

Given that rising ingredient prices, higher labor costs, and other supply-side challenges likely weighed on margins and chipped away at profitability, investors have been lowering their expectations for overall S&P 500 profits growth in the third quarter. Supply chain shortages and shipping issues have already had an impact on a variety of enterprises across industries, as evidenced by recent developments.

Costco (COST) and Walmart (WMT), according to the Wall Street Journal, have resorted to chartering their own ships to import items ahead of the holiday season. Due to continued processor shortages, Apple (AAPL) is expected to decrease its iPhone manufacturing estimates for this year by up to 10 million handsets.
