The Dow added 305 points on Wednesday, extending its win streak for a third-straight session, as investors unpacked more upbeat earnings reports. The Nasdaq and S&P 500 also walked away with solid wins, as the 10-year Treasury yield pulled back from its recent highs, and traders continued to rotate back into the tech sector. Wall Street's "fear gauge," also known as the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX), logged its fourth consecutive loss.
