S&P 500 books record high and Nasdaq rallies 1.1% as stock market reacts to Johnson & Johnson pause, hot CPI report The S&P 500 finished at a record and technology shares closed in the green Tuesday as long-term government bond yields retreated despite data showing a surge in consumer prices in March. Investors were hit with early negative headlines after the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requested the immediate halt in the use of Johnson & Johnson's one-shot COVID vaccine out of "an abundance of caution" due to extremely rare blood-clotting issues in women. That report was followed by a highly anticipated reading of March that showed U.S. consumer prices rising on the month for the fourth month in a row, with the pace of inflation hitting the highest level in 21/2 years. The rate of inflation over the past year shot up to 2.6% from 1.7% in the prior month, marking the highest level since the fall of 2018. The S&P 500 closed at a record at around 4,141, about 0.3% higher, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 1.1% as technology shares scored a bounce off reteating bond yields. The 10-year Treasury note yielded 1.62% , with the decline following the CPI report, which some traders said wasn't as hot as expected, helping support some bids for long-dated bonds and relieving some of the pressure of higher borrowing costs on investments viewed as speculative like tech and tech-related shares. The Dow Jones Industrial Average , however, closed off 0.2% at aroound 33,677.
