NASDAQ Weekly Market Pulse

ADVISORY, April 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corporate earnings were in focus this past week, but global growth concerns also remained a topic. Some encouraging sell-side commentary on the US housing recovery by Barclays, upgrading the industry to positive helped homebuilders. The PHLX Housing Index (HGX) finished the period higher by 3.3%. The NASDAQ US 300 Index (NQUSL300) rose 4.8% for the week as large caps outperformed on earnings results.

"Energy and Materials stocks outperformed this week as a rebound in the commodity sell-off from last week and a perceived increase in risk appetite for US stocks propelled shares higher," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director, NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes.
