Although jobless claims were worse than expected at 744,000 from 694,000, investors largely overlooked this and continued the good start of April. Investors widely applauded the latest Fed meeting notes, which indicated that interest rates would stay this low for the foreseeable future. President Biden’s willingness to negotiate his 28% corporate tax proposal was also a positive catalyst. As investors digested all of this news, the S&P 500 hit a new high with Big Tech stocks in the lead. The Dow Jones held steady, the S&P 500 advanced 0.3% and the Nasdaq outperformed and advanced 0.9%. FAANG shares also all rose more than 1%.
