Why Strong Earnings From Amazon Should Help Boost the Nasdaq

by | Feb 4, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

The Nasdaq is poised to open higher following Amazon’s strong fourth-quarter earnings report — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.

While Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) narrowly missed on revenue estimates, it crushed earnings, delivering $5.80 per share versus expectations of $3.57.

Amazon’s strong fourth quarter was largely thanks to its cloud business, as well as its investment in electric vehicle manufacturer Rivian Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: RIVN), where it reported almost a $12 billion gain. 

Its strength helped pull the Nasdaq up Friday morning, following a drop on Thursday due to Facebook’s dismal report.

We’ve seen a lot of volatility lately due to big tech companies’ earnings reports… But by the end of next week, the markets should start to settle as the effects wear off.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn why bonds are driving stocks right now… which sector offers the most resilience and lowest risk… how to trade the current market effectively… an update on major levels… whether the markets are set to drop or soar… plus I’ll show off a few winners from this week.
