TradingMarkets 7 Stocks You Need to Know for Monday

Investors welcome several earnings announcements in an otherwise slow news day start to next week. Stocks traded in an erratic yet positive fashion on this final trading day of the week. A surprise rate hike that the Fed insists was simply procedural spooked stocks pre-open. However, a weaker than expected CPI report squelched inflation fears, leading to the bullish sentiment on the session. The DJIA added 9.45, the Nasdaq eased higher by 2.16 and the S&P 500 moved higher by 2.42.
