Today's Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Iamgold and Yamana Gold

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / May 25, 2018 / U.S. markets were weighed down by the energy sector on Thursday as U.S. crude oil prices closed lower for the third consecutive session. However, major indexes received a boost after President Trump announced the cancellation of a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.30 percent to close at 24,811.76, while the S&P 500 Index declined 0.20 percent to close at 2,727.76. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.02 percent to close at 7,424.43.

"The selloff after the cancellation of the North Korea meeting was muted, largely because it doesn't change the second-quarter earnings or economic growth," Karyn Cavanaugh, senior market strategist at Voya Financial. "Geopolitical risks are never fun and markets tend to price in the bad news right away and the good news only gradually," Cavanaugh added.
