Stock Market Today: CPI Inflation Report

Early Wednesday, the Labor Department said that its consumer price index rose 0.3% on the month, with a 3.4% annual increase, in line with Econoday estimates. The core CPI rose 0.3%, with a 3.6% year-over-year increase. Those numbers, which exclude food and energy, also met estimates.

Dow Jones Rises

On Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average moved up 0.3%, and the S&P 500 gained 0.5%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite rallied 0.8%. Investor’s Business Daily’s Big Picture column on Tuesday said: “IBD’s current recommended allocation remains at 40% to 60%. The rally attempt still looks fine, even though 2% gains for the Nasdaq and S&P 500 on April 26 and May 3 didn’t meet the qualification for follow-through days due to slightly lower volume.”

Stock Market Today: Best Stocks To Watch

NetApp (NTAP), PDD (PDD), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) and Tradeweb Markets (TW) — plus Dow Jones components JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Merck (MRK) — are among the best companies to watch on the stock market today.
