Stocks more than recouped Wednesday’s losses with the S&P 500 even turning positive for 2018, leaving just the Dow in negative territory for the year. A calming of geopolitical tensions and the start of earnings season drove investors to buy stocks sending the Dow nearly 300 points higher. While any U.S. action toward Syria could reignite fears, investors seem to be shrugging off this concern for now. Cyclicals led the move higher with Financials being the day’s best performing sector, rising 1.82%. Gains however were not seen everywhere as five of the 11 sectors closed lower on the day. The Dow rose 1.3% on the day while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite were up 0.83% and 1.01% respectively.
