The stock market started quite positively today, rebounding well off of yesterday’s lows. A news report stated that Apple (AAPL) plans to boost iPhone production by 10% when compared to the first half of 2019. Given the company’s weight in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500, the substantial price movement pushed the indices higher. However, quarterly earnings reports and the new 2020 outlooks for 3M (MMM) and Pfizer (PFE). The indices rose steadily throughout the session and ended not far from the highs of the day. All told the Dow closed higher by 187 points, the S&P 500 was up 33 points, and the NASDAQ rose 130 points.
