Stock Market Today: Tech Stocks on Top Again as Fed Seeks a Helping Hand
The seesaw in market leadership tilted back toward tech on Tuesday as Federal Reserve leaders continued to stump for Congressional help and as European COVID concerns continued to bubble.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell told the House Committee on Financial Services that, while the economy is indeed improving, continued progress is "highly uncertain" and continued to stress the importance of additional fiscal stimulus. Separately, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans was more specific, saying the country risks "recessionary dynamics" without a new rescue package.

The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.7% to 10,963 thanks to gains in the tech and communications sectors. It was also helped by a 5.7% surge in Amazon.com (AMZN), which received a Buy call from Bernstein, launched a $499 Peloton (PTON, -0.4) knock-off bike called Prime Bike and set the stage for this year's Prime Day.

Oil futures finish higher ahead of data expected to show a weekly decline in U.S. crude supplies
Oil futures finished higher on Tuesday ahead of data that are expected to show a second straight weekly decline in U.S. crude supplies. On average, analysts polled by S&P Global Platts expect the Energy Information Administration on Wednesday to report a fall of 4 million barrels in domestic crude inventories for the week ended Sept. 18. Oil's climb Tuesday was modest however, as energy traders struggled "to assess the uncertainty with U.S. production as we approach the last two months of hurricane season [and] how bad the demand outlook will get following the winter wave of the coronavirus," as Libyan oil production slowly bounces back, said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda. October West Texas Intermediate oil , which expired at the end of the day's session, rose 29 cents, or 0.7%, to settle at $39.60 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The new front-month contract, November WTI crude settled at $39.80, up 26 cents, or 0.7%.

Nasdaq's big bounce comes despite just a minority of stocks gaining ground
The Nasdaq Composite bounced 1.1% in afternoon trading Tuesday, putting it on track to snap a four-day losing streak in which its slumped 3.7%, but the rally comes despite most stocks trading lower. The number of declining stocks on the Nasdaq exchange outnumbered advancers 1,758 to 1,459. On the plus side, however, volume in advancing stocks made up 58.0% of total volume, suggesting the larger-capitalized, more active minority were helping drive the market-cap weighted index higher. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 91 points, or 0.3%, and the S&P 500 gained 0.7%. Breadth data on the NYSE was the opposite of the Nasdaq's, as advancers outnumbered decliners by 1,514 to 1,390, but advancing volume made up just 44.3% of total volume.

Hedge Funds' 25 Top Blue-Chip Stocks to Buy Now
A good, old-fashioned investor panic that punished even solid blue-chip stocks led investors to pull money out of hedge funds like crazy earlier this year. But now it appears that the good times are rolling again.

The benchmark Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index is sporting a five-month trailing return of almost 13% since March. That includes a 1.9% improvement in August. It's little wonder, then, that net inflows to hedge funds increased by nearly $18 billion last month.

If hedge funds are bullish on a recovery in both the economy and equity markets, it's not a bad idea to see how the so-called smart money is positioning itself for those bets. To get an idea of what hedge funds are holding these days, we turned to WhaleWisdom, where we were able to determine hedge funds' favorite names based on the number of funds holding a position in any given stock. 

Big, blue-chip stocks are unsurprisingly over-represented on the list. Indeed, of the 25 most popular hedge fund stocks, 10 are components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Partly that's a function of their massive market capitalizations and attendant liquidity, which creates ample room for big institutional investors to build or sell large positions.

In plenty of other cases, however, hedge funds are betting on some of today's hottest growth stocks. 

Have a look at hedge funds' 25 favorite blue-chip stocks to buy now. All these names likely appeal to the smart money because of their size, strong track records or outsized growth prospects, but we'll delve into a few specifics that make each pick special.
