Dow jumps over 300 points to log 23rd record close in 2021 and S&P 500 ends back above 4,200 amid late-session surgeU.S. stocks on Thursday finished a tumultous day firmly in positive territory and the Dow registered back-to-back record closes, supported by a round of strong corporate earnings and signs of continued improvement in the labor market as reflected in the jobless claims report ahead of a closely followed employment report due on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up by about 315 points, or 0.9%, to a record at 34,546, powered by gains in Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Home Depot . The all-time closing high was the 23rd for the blue-chip index in 2021, outstripping all of the records produced in 2020, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The S&P 500 index closed up 0.8% at 4,200, while the Nasdaq Composite Index ended 0.4% higher at 13,633, snapping a four-session skid. A 1.4% rally in financials and a 1% rally in the technology sector helped to support Thursday's advance, which came as initial unemployment claims in the U.S. fell to 498,000 for first time in pandemic era, pointing to an improving labor market but also raising questions for some investors about the specter of rapidly rising inflation.

AdaptHealth stock plunges after CEO charged with tax fraud in DenmarkShares of AdaptHealth Corp. plunged 16.7% in morning trading Tuesday, after the maker of home health care equipment said it has learned that co-Chief Executive Luke McGee has been formally charged in Denmark for tax fraud for past private activity. The stock was on track to suffer the biggest one-day drop since the record plunge of 21.2% on March 18, 2020. The company said it has placed McGee, who founded the AdaptHealth in conjunction with Quadrant Management, on unpaid leave. The company said the charges stem from alleged "personal conduct" which occurred between March 2014 and August 2015, and had no connection with the company. In February, following the closing of , Stephen Griggs had joined McGee as co-CEO. "The Board has full confidence in the Company's management team, led by current Co-CEO Steve Griggs and President Josh Parnes, and in its ability to ensure that AdaptHealth's business remains strong and to maintain the Company's growth trajectory," AdaptHealth said in a statement. The stock has still rallied 74.2% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 49.6%.

Stocks open mostly higher, tech in the lead, Powell on deckU.S. stock benchmarks started the Thursday session mostly higher, with the S&P 500 eyeing another record, one day after minutes from the Federal Reserve's most recent meeting did little to move markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped by 6 points to open near 33,442, while the broader S&P 500 added 12 points, 0.3%, to start near 4,092. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 108 points, 0.8%, to trade near 13,797. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is set to speak midday at an International Monetary Fund conference, but the focus on the central bank this week comes as bond yields have settled into a range that investors seem comfortable with. The headline figure for new filings for unemployment insurance ticked up slightly in the most recent week, the Labor Department said Thursday, but the measure of ongoing claims fell to its lowest in over a year.

S&P 500 books 18th record close of 2021 in listless trading day after Fed signals commitment to lower ratesThe S&P 500 on Wednesday eked out a record, its 18th of the year, but trading action was otherwise lackluster as minutes from the Federal Reserve's last policy meeting appeared to reaffirm a commitment to a lower-rate regime as the COVID-stricken labor market recovers. The S&P 500 index closed up 0.2% at around 4,079, on a preliminary basis. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished up less than 0.1% at about 33,446, to mark its third gain in four sessions, while the Nasdaq Composite Index edged less than 0.1% lower to around 13,669. "While generally acknowledging that the medium-term outlook for real GDP growth and employment had improved, participants continued to see the uncertainty surrounding that outlook as elevated," minutes from the Fed's March 16-17 meeting read. The central bank said that its "current guidance for the federal funds rate and asset purchases was serving the economy well." Projections from Fed members indicate that policy makers won't look to normalize rates until at 2023 at the earliest but segments of the market have pushed back against that notion, amid fears that inflation will pick up as the economy improves.

Stocks open lower as market churn continues U.S. stocks opened lower Thursday, on track for a third down day despite stronger-than-expected economic data and cooling bond yields. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 158 points, 0.5%, to open near 32,362, while the S&P 500 lost 19 points or 0.5%, near 3,870. The Nasdaq Composite index dropped 120 points, 0.9%, and traded near 12,842. On Thursday morning, the government revised up its estimate of GDP growth in the fourth quarter, and the Labor Department announced that fewer Americans had applied for first-time jobless benefits in the most recent week. Earnings reports for companies like Darden Restaurants Inc. continue to beat expectations. Still, stocks remain under pressure with no clear catalyst for the sell-off.
