The Dow surged 204 points today, snapping a four-day losing streak thanks to a slew of earnings reports -- including a big quarterly win from Coca-Cola (KO) -- that encouraged investors about the health of the stock market. The Nasdaq scored a triple-digit pop as well, while the S&P 500 (SPX) snapped its five-day skid, as the 10-year Treasury yield pulled back from 5%. Wall Street is now looking ahead to Big Tech earnings from Alphabet (GOOGL) and Microsoft (MSFT), due out after the close today. 

  • Logitech stock surged after profit announcement
  • Zoom stock hanging around its April lows. 
  • Plus, two stocks drawing analyst attention; and more on KO's post-earnings pop.
