U.S. equities charged forward for another day, extending a comeback that kicked off the week as earnings season sets into high gear.
The S&P 500 (^GSPC) surged 2.3% at the open, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) added 600 points, or 2%. The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite (^IXIC) advanced 2.8%.
Sentiment got a boost Tuesday morning on third-quarter results from Goldman Sachs (GS) — Wall Street’s premier investment bank — which posted earnings that beat analyst estimates across the board despite challenging year-over-year comparisons. Shares rose more than 5% early into the session.
In an interview with CNBC, CEO David Solomon warned that there was a “good chance” the U.S. economy may enter a recession next year.
“That environment heading into 2023 is one that you’ve got to be cautious and prepared for,” he said.
Goldman Sachs is the last of the country’s six megabanks to unveil results. Despite better-than-feared figures from some names in financials that gave stocks a boost Monday, the banking industry has reported a year-over-year earnings decline of 13% for the third-quarter, driven primarily by increased provisions for loan losses to prepare for a possible recession, according to FactSet Research. Wall Street’s big banks are bellwethers of the U.S. economy and typically set the tone for the earnings season.

The moves early Tuesday come after all three major averages rallied in the previous session, with the S&P 500, Dow, and Nasdaq notching gains of 2.7%, 1.9%, and 3.4%, respectively.
“As we continue to remind you, this kind of outsized move is not on its own historically indicative of either a healthy market or an investable low,” DataTrek Research Co-Founder Jessica Rabe said in a note.
The annual average number of days in which the S&P 500 gained more than 1% was 54 last year, while Monday’s bounce brings the year-to-date tally of such gains to 100 – an important threshold the benchmark index has only reached seven other years in the past six decades: during the Saudi oil embargo, the 2000 Dotcom Bubble, the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, and 2020’s pandemic crash.
With inflows to stocks near a record last week, investors have been ramping up bets that a market bottom is in. But many Wall Street strategists have argued that the optimism is premature, particularly as what’s expected to be a murky earnings season gets underway.

Bank of America’s global fund manager survey out Tuesday morning found that 91% of respondents said corporate earnings are unlikely to rise 10% or more in the next year, the highest share of investors in the survey’s history – a sign of further downside for forward earnings-per-share estimates for the S&P 500 index.
As such, BofA analysts deemed any indication that the end of the equity rout is near merely “tasty morsels for another bear rally,” adding that the institution projects a “big low” and subsequent “big rally” in the first half of 2023, when the Federal Reserve is expected to change course and start cutting rates.
This month’s survey “screams macro capitulation, investor capitulation, start of policy capitulation,” strategists led by Michael Hartnett wrote.
Tuesday will keep investors busy, with Wall Street assessing earnings from companies including Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Hasbro (HAS), Netflix (NFLX), and United Airlines (UAL).

American Airlines Will Pay Millions Over Huge Passenger Problem
Few travel nightmares can be worse than packing small to avoid paying for a checked bag and then, upon arriving at the airport, being told that the bag is too big and needs to be checked anyway. At the same time, a recent study from IdeaWorks found that the percentage of revenue airlines derive from baggage fees has been rising steadily — 3.7% in 2019, 3.9% in 2020 and 4.6% in 2021. In February 2021, five passengers who traveled with American Airlines filed a class action lawsuit that accused the airline of incorrectly charging them baggage fees that they were not required to pay.

Which Stock Is More Likely to 5X First: AbbVie or Tilray Brands?
A major pharmaceutical company like AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) and a rising cannabis company like Tilray Brands (NASDAQ: TLRY) operate in different industries and have several other characteristics that make proper comparisons complicated. Tilray’s smaller size and strong position in a rapidly growing industry would suggest to some that its stock has great potential to 5x in value relatively quickly. In contrast, AbbVie’s got a large pipeline of potential new pharmaceuticals its developing.
