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

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 26, 2017 / The markets record rally stalled Wednesday, with the Dow posting its largest one day drop since September 5th, after the latest batch of corporate earnings failed to impress Wall Street. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.48 percent to close at 23,329.46, while the S&P 500 Index dropped 0.47 percent to close at 2,557.15. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.52 percent to close at 6,563.89. As of Wednesday, 165 of the companies in the S&P 500 Index have reported earnings so far with approximately 72.1 percent of them beating expectations, according to Reuters.

"While we continue to advise patience and some caution in the near term [due to low volatility and stretched valuation] the strength in U.S. stocks continues to support our view that we are nowhere near the end of this secular bull market," said Andrew Adams, market strategist at Raymond James, in a note, according to MarketWatch.
