PHILLIP SUMMARY

Stocks ended the day little changed on Tuesday, weighed down by a continuing decline in tech shares while Ford was pressured by a downgrade to its credit rating.

The S&P 500 closed just above the flatline at 2,979.39. The Nasdaq Composite closed marginally lower at 8,084.16. The Dow Jones Industrial Average outperformed, rising 73.92 points, or 0.3% to 26,909.43, posting a five-day winning streak.

The S&P 500 tech sector was one of the worst performers on Monday, sliding 0.7%, one day day after the attorneys general of 50 U.S. states announced an investigation into Google’s ‘potential monopolistic behavior.

Investors eyed a potential rotation in market leadership from defensive names and fast-growing tech stocks into cyclical sectors, including energy, industrials and materials, all of which have posted gains Tuesday, in contrast with the S&P 500.

Meanwhile, concerns about the U.S.-China trade battle appear to have moved to the back burner for investors after being blamed for volatile market action in August.
