Stock Market Today: Tech Stocks Lead Wall Street Forward Again
Wednesday's scene was a familiar one: A day of choppy trading that saw the Nasdaq and its host of mega-caap tech stocks outpace the other blue-chip indices.

The U.S. reported another record spike in coronavirus cases yesterday, which appeared to weigh on most of the market early in the day. But stocks firmed up later in the day, led by solid gains for Big Tech.

Pros' Picks: The 15 Best Nasdaq Stocks You Can Buy Apple (AAPL) advanced by 2.3% after Deutsche Bank analyst Jeriel Ong raised his price target to $400 per share.

"We do have some worry that the stock price has overreacted to the positive data points over the past two months, and the rough mental framework we've articulated certainly gives us some pause," Ong writes. However, "despite our worries, we do reiterate our confidence that AAPL can work from present levels."

Microsoft (MSFT, 2.2%) and (AMZN, 2.7%) were among other notable winners Wednesday.

The Nasdaq shot 1.4% higher to 10,492, closing yet again at all-time highs. The Dow gained 0.7% to 26,067, the S&P 500 closed 0.8% higher to 3,169, and the small-cap Russell 2000 finished with a 0.8% improvement to 1,427.

An Ugly Second Quarter for Dividends New data out Wednesday delivered some discouraging news on the income investing front, however.

Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst for S&P Dow Jones Indices, reports that, during the second quarter, the U.S. equity market saw a net decline of $42.5 billion in dividend payments, the worst

Nvidia surpasses Intel as largest U.S. chip maker by market cap
Nvidia Corp. surpassed Intel Corp. as the largest U.S. chip maker by market cap for the first time on Wednesday. Nvidia shares closed up 3.5% at $408.64, giving it a market cap of $251.31 billion, while Intel shares finished up 0.5% at $58.61, giving it a market cap of $248.16 billion, according to FactSet data. For the year, Nvidia shares have gained 74% while Intel shares have slipped 2%, compared with a 11% gain in the PHLX Semiconductor Index , a 17% gain in the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index , and a 1.9% decline in the S&P 500 index . While it is not the first time a U.S. chip maker has surpassed Intel in market cap, it is the first time for Nvidia. Back in 1999 and 2000, Texas Instruments Inc. surpassed Intel in cap a few times, and between late 2012 and mid-2014 Qualcomm Inc. and Intel often jockeyed for the No. 1 position, according to Dow Jones data.

Facebook takes down pages, accounts linked to Roger Stone, three other groups
Facebook Inc. shares rose 1% Wednesday after it announced the digital takedown of pages and accounts linked to President Trump's longtime adviser Roger Stone and Proud Boys, a far-right group Facebook has banned under its hate policies. The social-networking giant also said it removed accounts tied to employees of the family of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and two other networks connected to domestic political operations in Ecuador and Ukraine. The material linked to Stone, who is scheduled to report to jail next week for witness tampering and lying to Congress, included 54 Facebook accounts and 50 pages. The pages included hacked materials released by Wikileaks ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Facebook removed the content of the four groups as it faces withering pressure from civil rights advocates and hundreds of advertisers for hateful and divisive messages on its platform.

Costco June sales rise 11% to $16 billion
Costco Wholesale Corp. said Wednesday its June sales rose 11% to $16.2 billion, from $14.6 billion in June 2019. Same-store sales rose 12%, including an 11% increase in U.S. same-store sales. E-commerce sales increased 86%, the company said. Costco sales in May rose 7.5% and online sales jumped 106% that month. Costco has reported strong e-commerce sales this year but at its last quarterly report in April the company said the online sales hadn't made up for the drop in foot traffic at the stores and other businesses such as optical, food court, and travel due to the stay-at-home orders, social-distancing restrictions and closures related to the coronavirus pandemic. Costco is slated to report fiscal fourth-quarter results sometime in September, with quarterly sales seen around $50 billion, according to FactSet. Shares of Costco rose nearly 1% in the extended session after ending the regular trading day up less than 0.1%.
