[STOCK MARKET NEWS UPDATE] – Apple, Google & Netflix pushing markets higher


And we’re live. So welcome to the stock market update for today. February 4. Yes. As you can see I’m not at home I’m right now traveling I am in
Puerto Rico so behind me you’ll see the ocean. And this week we are having our
private mastermind for the Rockwell members and I thought it would be fun to do
these daily updates from here. So you also see a countdown timer in the upper right hand corner. And I want to do this market update
in five minutes or less. So let’s see what happened in the
markets today what moved the markets and what traders are focusing on
right now. Let me hop over to the charts and as you can see here this is the Dow Jones for today. We had a pretty slow start in the day but then as the day progressed the Dow Jones here was taking off. So up 175 points or 0.7%. The S&P very similar picture a slow start in the morning but then Up,Up and Away up 0.68%. So very similar to the DOW. So the big gainer today was the Nasdaq. So here you see the Nasdaq up 1.23%. So what has brought the Nasdaq up so much? Well very easy, today there were rumors around the FANG stocks. Now one of the FANG stocks it is
Facebook, Apple, Alphabet, Netflix, Google which is basically alphabet. So what about the rumors. Well crazy. Apple has tons of cash laying around and JP Morgan actually
suggested that. Here’s one thing that they
could do with the cash they could buy Netflix and see what happens here. So need to move a few things. So looking at Apple for today, we see that that Apple was up 2.84% because investors seem to like this idea. Let’s take a look at the bigger
picture here of Apple as you can see Apple right now, nicely moving higher here. So this is what happened over the past two trading days. Observe this one hour. I wanted to go to a daily chart. There we go right. Apple has been hammered like the rest of the market here in October, November, December but right now. Same as the rest of the market. Nicely bouncing back again today. The winner with 2.84%. Again rumors were, that they or JP Morgan said they could actually buy Netflix. So Netflix was another stock, that was nicely up here today on these rumors. Netflix up three point thirty eight
percent. It’s again see right now trading at
$351. Now also Google reported after the bell. So Google had their earnings report today after the bell going into earnings report. It looked good. So they were up 2% for the day after the bell. Now that earnings are released. They are down 2.84%. So we’ll see what happens with Google tomorrow. Looking overall at the markets again
the Dow Jones as you can see the markets are climbing back up. Not yet at new all time highs but on their way there. So is there anything that can stop
the market? Well right now no news from the China trade war front also as you can see earnings are better than expected. And again because right now and we just go back here to the
camera so we’ll get back the. Oh I’m very very bright here. Sort of this low a bit down. So again what’s moving the markets
right now. Last week on Friday jobs report came actually out pretty good companies are
reporting better than expected earnings and today then take over rumors that Apple might buy Netflix. But again this is just a rumor spread by JP Morgan here giving Apple an idea of what to do with all the cash. So earnings will be the focus for the next few days for this week. The Fed had their decision last week. So nothing major going on there. The markets are still strong. Markets are pushing higher. I wouldn’t be surprised if at some
point this week we saw correction because we have been pushing higher, higher, higher. And today, definitely an update, update. And that’s what you expect in the
markets today? And look at this. I was able to do this only four minutes. This is your market update today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a market update for February
5th. Today February 4th. That’s what’s happening right now. Have a great evening. I’ll talk to you soon.
