In a week marred by more tragedy in the Ukraine and amid a deluge of earnings reports from some of the largest U.S. companies, stocks were able to post decent showings. The Dow Jones Industrial Average notched a triple-digit gain on Friday while the S&P 500 was mostly flat for the week despite the aforementioned geopolitical tensions.
Bottom line: It was an eventful week, particularly against the backdrop of summer, when many market participants expect things to be subdued, if not boring. With that, here is a look at some of this week’s biggest ETF stories.
