Wall Street Adds More Gains to Last Week’s Rally; Tech Leads | Business News

By STAN CHOE and ALEX VEIGA, AP Business Writers

Stocks are pushing higher on Wall Street in afternoon trading Monday and tacking more gains onto last week’s market rally, its best in three months.

The S&P 500 was 1.8% higher, following up on strengthening in stock markets around the world. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 308 points, or 1.1%, at 28,895, as of 12:35 p.m. Eastern time, and the Nasdaq composite was 2.6% higher.

The gains are being driven mostly by Big Tech stocks, whose businesses have proven to be practically impervious to the pandemic, rather than companies that would benefit from a strengthening economy.

Apple climbed 5.4% and alone accounted for nearly a quarter of the S&P 500’s rise. Amazon gained 5.1%. Both companies have events coming up this week, with Apple expected to unveil its latest batch of iPhones on Tuesday and Amazon holding its Prime

Wall Street adds more gains to last week’s rally; tech leads

NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street is pushing higher in Monday morning trading and tacking more gains onto last week’s rally, its best in three months.

The S&P 500 was 0.9% higher, following up on strengthening in stock markets around the world. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 165 points, or 0.6%, at 28,752, as of 10:23 a.m. Eastern time, and the Nasdaq composite was 1.4% higher.

Monday’s market gains were driven mostly by Big Tech stocks, whose businesses have proven to be practically impervious to the pandemic, rather than companies that would benefit from a strengthening economy.


Apple rose 3.4% and alone accounted for nearly a quarter of the S&P 500’s rise. Amazon gained 3.3%. Both companies have events coming up this week, with Apple expected to unveil its latest batch of iPhones on Tuesday and Amazon holding its Prime Day on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Challenger rugged smartphone brand Blackview will launch the campaign for its first 5G smartphone within the next few weeks on Indiegogo, which is rapidly turning into the preferred battleground for guerilla style, low cost marketing campaigns.

The BL6000 Pro owes its name to the 2016 BV6000, the company’s first successful foray into rugged smartphones, but will prove to be a different beast entirely with 5G connectivity baked in.

Based on the MediaTek Dimensity 800, it also features 8GB of RAM and 256GB onboard storage (hopefully UFS) with a triple rear camera setup that includes a 48-megapixel AI camera – likely to be the same as on the BV9900 Pro.

Add in a 5,280mAh battery and

New study says Trump could be in the lead on Election Night but lose by week’s end

Republican President Donald Trump leads strongly among those who say they are unlikely to vote by mail, while Democrat Joe Biden has a solid lead among voters overall, suggesting that results will shift toward Biden as mail-in votes are tallied after Election Day, a new national survey finds.

Trump leads, 68 percent to 23 percent, among those who say they are very unlikely to vote by mail. Biden, however, leads among all voters, 50 to 40 percent, according to a report on the survey released Friday by researchers from Northeastern University, Harvard University, Rutgers University, and Northwestern University.

“There will therefore likely be enormous shifts toward Biden after election day,” David Lazer, a Northeastern University political science and computer science professor who worked on the report, said in an e-mail.

“The pattern of a shift toward Biden driven by mail-in voting is quite robust across the country. We anticipate a
