PayPal Pops in Market Return; Nasdaq Edges to New Record

PayPal (PYPL) was one of the best performers on the S&P 500, rallying in its return to markets.

PayPal (PYPL) was one of the best performers on the S&P 500, rallying in its return to markets. The electronic payments company, which split from eBay (eBay) on Friday, first traded in 2002 before eBay acquired it.

Micron spiked last week on reports Tsinghua was close to making an official bid.
