Apple Leads The Market Rebound. Here's Why.

Apple Leads The Market Rebound. Here's Why.

U.S. indices were trading higher Friday, rebounding after dipping on Thursday amid capital gains tax hike concerns, and as investors await several notable earnings reports next week.

  • The SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (NASDAQ: DIA) finished higher by 0.68% at $340.30.
  • The Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 (NASDAQ: QQQ) gained 1.26% at $339.42.
  • The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NASDAQ: SPY) closed higher by 1.08% at $416.74. 

Here are the day's winners and losers from the DIA, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

Strength was largely seen in tech and industrials: Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), Boeing Co (NYSE: BA) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) being among the DIA’s top gainers. 

Apple shares were trading higher amid overall market strength, as well as in anticipation of next week's earnings report.

There were very few laggards in the DIA Friday, but Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC), American Express Company (NYSE: AMX), and Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE: HON) were among them. 

Intel shares were trading lower after the company reported first-quarter earnings results. Shares were driven lower after the company issued second-quarter EPS guidance below estimates.
