U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

U.S. stocks extended recent gains on Friday, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq posting their biggest monthly percentage gains since 2020, following upbeat earnings estimates from Apple and Amazon.  

Most sectors of the S&P 500 closed higher, with energy stocks rising 4.5%, the most among all sectors. Chevron jumped 8.9% and Exxon Mobil jumped 4.6% after both companies reported record quarterly revenue.  

Apple rose 3.3% after the company said parts shortages are easing and demand for iPhones remains strong. Amazon surged 10.4% after the company forecast third-quarter revenue would jump due to an increase in its Prime membership fees.  

On the corporate earnings front, Intel fell 8.6% after the company cut its annual sales and earnings forecast and its second-quarter results fell short of expectations.  

U.S. companies’ second-quarter results were mostly stronger than expected. The 279 S&P 500 component companies that have announced their results so far, 77.8% of the results exceeded expectations.  

Refinitiv’s I/B/E/S Estimates data show that the S&P 500 component companies are expected to second-quarter earnings growth of 7.1%, compared with the 5.6% increase forecast in early July.  

Economic data released earlier showed that U.S. labor costs rose strongly in the second quarter, with a tight job market driving payroll growth.  

But last Thursday, a government report showed that the U.S. economy unexpectedly contracted in the second quarter, which to some investors suggests that the U.S. economy is on the brink of recession.  

That could prevent the Federal Reserve from continuing to raise interest rates sharply as it struggles with high inflation.
