Stocks finished the day mixed following yesterday's sharp losses.

The spotlight will remain on those reports as well, with Facebook parent Meta Platforms (FB) set to report earnings after the close, while Apple (AAPL) and Amazon.com (AMZN) share their reports tomorrow. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 closed just above breakeven, while the Dow landed firmly in the black.
