Nasdaq Stock Market (NASDAQ)

The last seven days were less than ideal for Globalstar (GSAT), MannKind Corp. (MNKD), iRhythm Technologies Inc. (IRTC), Veracyte Inc. (VCYT) and FireEye (FEYE).

  • Globalstar (GSAT) shares tanked this week with no recent news about the mobile satellite services provider that might have caused this volatility.

  • iRhythm Technologies Inc. (IRTC) shares sank after the cardiac care company announced that President and CEO Michael Coyle would be stepping down.
  • Veracyte Inc. (VCYT) shares dipped after the genomic diagnostics company closed a deal to acquire HalioDx. 
  • FireEye (FEYE) shares declined after the cybersecurity company announced major changes to its business, including plans to buy back $500 million in stock.

Highlights and Lowlights

Major US indexes posted modest gains for the second week in a row. The SPX500 and the DJ30 rose 0.6% and 0.7% respectively, bringing them just shy of record highs set four weeks ago. The NSDQ100 added a very modest 0.5% gain.

The monthly employment report showed continued, albeit moderate, improvement in job growth and the unemployment rate, with the last two monthly gains being smaller than those for March 2021.

What’s in Store for the Week?

With the earnings season behind us and a relatively quiet calendar for next week, investors will likely focus on the pace at which the US economy continues to recover, as well as look for signs that the Fed may begin tightening its monetary policies.
