Markets Live Recap: Record Retail Sales Push Stocks Higher Today

Stocks rose Tuesday on the back of a record retail sales jump in May, positive trial results from a potential COVID-19 treatment, and more economic stimulus from the Fed.

The U.S. government reported all-time increase in retail sales of 17.7% in May.

Economists were expecting a 7.7% increase.

Meanwhile, trial results announced today showed an already widely-available drug called dexamethasone can help critically ill coronavirus patients.

Combine that with the Fed's announcement yesterday that it will begin buying individual corporate bonds, and you get another market rally.

The S&P 500 was up 1.6%, the Dow up 1.7%, and the Nasdaq closed 1.5% higher on the day.

As America Reopens, Explosive Pent-Up Demand Will Benefit These Companies First

After the long coronavirus shutdowns, 35 states are now reopening or about to reopen.

While the U.S. has shed about 26 million jobs over the pasts two months, the hope is that companies rehire the employees they've had to let go, and that business will quickly go "back to normal."

Markets Live Recap: Why Oil Prices and Stocks Both Surged Today

The biggest news of the day was the 20% pop for oil prices.

They surged thanks to optimism around production cuts.

There are also expectations from analysts that demand for the commodity will increase as some economies attempt to reopen around the world.

The S&P 500 was up as much as 1.8% mid-day, but only closed 0.9% higher.

The overall market is clearly buying the news that economies around the world will open up.

But it's to be determined if they'll be able to do that without spreading the coronavirus further.

Here's what our experts – Chris Johnson, D.R. Barton, Jr., and Shah Gilani – think investors should be doing with their money today.
