The Markets (as of market close April 27, 2018)

An avalanche of corporate earnings reports impacted the market last week. Unfortunately, there were
enough lackluster corporate earnings statements to prompt investors to exercise caution, resulting in a
relatively flat week for equities. The Dow fell the most — over 0.5% — while the S&P 500 essentially broke
even. The remaining indexes listed here lost some value by last week's end. As it stands, only the Nasdaq
and the Russell 2000 are ahead of their year-end values, while the Dow has lost over 1.5% as of last
Friday. On the other hand, long-term bond yields soared as prices fell (bond prices and yields move in
opposite directions). By midweek, the yield on 10-year Treasuries surpassed 3.0% for the first time in
several years, ultimately falling back to where yields began the week.
