Today's Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Oasis Petroleum and Whiting Petroleum

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 25, 2018 / U.S. markets were mixed Friday, with the Dow snapping an eight day losing streak as energy shares rallied. However, major indexes experienced weekly losses on trade-related news. The S&P 500 Index gained 0.19 percent to close at 2,754.88, ending the week 0.9 percent lower while the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.26 percent to close at 7,692.82, down by 0.3 percent for the week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 0.49 percent to close at 24,580.89, declining 2 percent for the week.

"We're seeing continued uncertainty around trade, but there's also a recognition that economic fundamentals remain strong, which could provide the kind of sturdy backdrop needed to support risk assets going forward," according to John Hancock Investments' head of capital markets research, Emily Roland.

"The fact that recent declines have essentially been mild may be a sign that investors don't believe we're headed for a full-out trade war. Rhetoric could still escalate, having a meaningful impact on businesses and consumers, but we're not there yet. We're still in a wait-and-see mode," she added. "There will be further negotiations, and we'll likely continue seeing choppiness as this gets hammered out."
