Dow dives almost 300 points

Dow dives almost 300 points

On Friday, the Dow headed south, neglecting data disclosing everlasting American economic surge because high-flying tech firms were punished in the wake of dismal reports from Amazon and Google.    

As a matter of fact, the Dow Jones Industrial Average sank nearly 1.19%. Additionally, the S&P 500 went down by 1.73%. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite sank by 2.07%.

Market participants grappled with crazy swings on Wall Street against the backdrop of strengthening fears of American corporates getting closer to peak revenue surge after tech heavyweights Amazon and Google delivered dismal quarterly reports and indicated a softer patch of surge for the fourth quarter.

Furthermore, Alphabet sank by 1.80% after it reported third-quarter gains, which fell short of expectations. Moreover, Amazon managed to decrease by 8% because its third-quarter gain fell short too. At the same time, its weaker-than-anticipated guidance for the key holiday season backed fears.

The S&P 500 tech sector concluded 2% down. Apart from that, the communication services sector, including Alphabet, Facebook and Netflix dipped by 2%.

The couple of dismal reports managed to overshadow data revealing that the American economy added 3.5% in the third quarter. That’s above analysts’ estimates for a 3.3% surge. However, experts told that a deeper insight into the data disclosed signs of a probable deceleration.

Building-products companies found themselves under pressure too, led by a more-than-20% tumble in equities of Mohawk Industries right after its third-quarter revenue came up short of predictions, while fourth-quarter revenue per share guidance of $2.45 to $2.60 turned out to be almost 30% below the consensus forecast at the midpoint.

The equities of Fortune Brands Home & Security, Johnson Controls International and Masco Corporation headed south too.

Besides this, Tesla rebounded from session maximums, although it still managed to come up with a 5% leap.
