Stock Market Today: Wall Street Rallies Around Reassuring Retail Data
The stock market enjoyed a broad rebound Tuesday as fresh economic data suggested the U.S. consumer is still shopping strong.

The U.S. Census Bureau said today that April retail sales improved by 0.9% over March. Though that was slightly less than the 1.0% expected, there was a show of strength in the significant upward revision to March's numbers, to 1.4% growth from 0.5% originally.

While Zaccarelli joins other names in believing a recession is unlikely in 2022, "the Fed is going to need to raise interest rates to a point where they are likely to cause a recession in 2023 or 2024, and that gives us cause for concern," he says.

Despite the promising retail data, success in retail stocks wasn't a gimme.

Walmart (WMT, -11.4%) plunged after delivering a mixed quarterly report. Revenues improved 2.4% year-over-year to $141.6 billion to easily top expectations, and Walmart lifted its full-year sales outlook.

Dow ends up 430 points Tuesday, after Fed's Powell says a 'softish' economic landing is possible
U.S. stocks finished sharply higher Tuesday after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said a "softish landing" for the economy still was possible. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced about 431 points, or 1.3%, ending near 32,655, up for a third straight day in a row. It also marked the biggest daily percentage jump for the blue-chip index since its 1.5% gain on Friday, according to FactSet. The S&P 500 index rose 2%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed 2.8% higher. Powell said there are a number of plausible paths to slowing inflation without sparking a recession, even if it causes Americans some pain, while speaking in an afternoon talk at The Wall Street Journal's Future of Everything event. U.S. retail sales also painted a picture of a healthy economic backdrop, rising 0.9% in April, slightly below the 1% advance forecast by economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal. But shares of Walmart Inc. shed more than 11% after the retail giant reported fiscal first-quarter profit that missed expectations.
