U.S. President Donald Trump sent a tweet early in the morning on Friday that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, by mid-day on Friday the Dow was down over 150 points; and though it rose toward the latter part of the day, the blue-chip ultimately finished the session 134 points lower. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq turned in losses as well, despite optimistic unemployment data and news that the $2.2 trillion Democratic stimulus bill was passed in the House. For the week, however, all three indexes ended in the black.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI - 27,682.81) fell 0.5% on Friday, but added 1.9% for the week. The S&P 500 Index (SPX - 3,348.42) shed 1% for the day on Friday, and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC - 11,075.02) lost 2.2% on the day. The indexes each tacked on 1.6% last week. The Cboe Volatility Index (VIX - 27.63) tacked on 3.5% on Friday and ended up 4.7% for the week's trading sessions.

This week, the first full week of October, will jumpstart today quietly with the non-manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) due out for investors to review.

There are no notable earnings due out today, October 5. In lieu of earnings reports today, take a look at the best and the worst stocks to own, historically, in the month of October.
