Wall Street was choppy on Tuesday, as investors unpacked rising bond yields and the latest corporate reports. The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P 500 all pared morning losses and broke into positive territory midday, but only the blue-chip index was able to finish the day higher, for its seventh win in the last eight sessions. The volatility culprit was once more a rallying 10-year Treasury note that hit a nearly two-week high following hotter-than-expected retail sales data. 

  • Blue-chip stock has a history of post-earnings pops.
  • Apparel stock grabs the eye of options traders.
  • Plus, two bank stocks to watch; DLTR's much-needed bounce; and Pfizer's update.
