NASDAQ Weekly Market Pulse

ADVISORY, Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. equities edged higher during the 5th week of earnings season with the Dow Jones Industrial Average reaching a new all-time high yesterday. The rally was tempered by an ECB rate cut and a Q3 U.S. GDP report showing weak consumer and business spending.

"Earnings and revenue 'beats' have been outperforming last quarter's and are in-line with the prior four quarters," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director, NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes.  "We are seeing some sector rotation as we head into year-end, but earnings have not been the primary driver as global monetary policy remains the focus."

INDEX MOVES THIS WEEK
  • The PHLX Housing Index (HGX) reversed a 5.6% gain last week with a 2.7% loss over the last five days as multiples for homebuilder earnings have contracted. The Index fell below its 50-day moving average on October 31st and has weakened since.
  • The NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (NBI) fell 2.4% as it appears investors are taking profits. The Index has had a strong year, up 51% to-date, but investors appear to be de-risking with less than two months to go in the year.
  • The NASDAQ EM Europe Index (NQEMEU) fell 2.9% over the past five days as European stocks were weakened by manufacturing data and other metrics that indicated a lack of growth.
