The markets look to start fresh after a rough first month of the year after Exxon and UPS report better-than-expected earnings — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.
January typically sets the tone for the rest of the year, but things will be different in 2022.
COVID-19 changed things drastically. The Federal Reserve pumped a lot of capital into the markets over the past few years, and bond purchasing distorted the action we would typically see.
We can’t necessarily look to past trends, nor can we put too much weight on the fluctuations we’re seeing now compared to those we saw years ago, because the conditions are so different.
That said, as long as the major indices continue to see higher highs and higher lows, we will be in good shape.
It’s also a good sign that companies are reporting better-than-expected earnings.
Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) missed on its revenue estimates but still beat earnings per share, causing its stock to rise 1.5% in premarket trading on Tuesday. United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS) beat on earnings and revenue, and raised its quarterly dividend by nearly 50%. It was up 8% in premarket trading.
