U.S. Stocks Saw Mix Performance On New Year’s, Apple Dips Over 3%


U.S. Stocks Saw Mix Performance On New Year's, Apple Dips Over 3%

On Tuesday, the U.S. stocks closed with mixed results, as the Nasdaq saw its largest single-day decline since October 2023.  

Pressures on tech stocks arose from the rebound in U.S. bond yields and Barclays’ downgrade of Apple stock. 

The market remains attentive to the Federal Reserve’s interest rate path in 2024. 

Back in October 2023, the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond yield had momentarily surpassed 5%, causing investor panic.  

However, this yield peaked and steadily declined, falling below 3.9% by the end of 2023.  

On Tuesday, the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond yield rebounded, nearing 4% once again. 

Adam Crisafulli, founder of Vital Knowledge, remarked in a report: “The greatest real risk facing the stock market is not the Federal Reserve or the European Central Bank failing to cut rates as aggressively as expected but rather earnings declining more than anticipated in an environment of slowing economic growth and fading pricing power.”
