Market Close for Monday, October 25, 2010

After the close…

We have TXN -1.0%, AMGN -0.6% following earnings.

Market participants had another fickle response to the latest round of earnings. That left the S&P 500 to trade listlessly in a narrow range nearthe neutral line. Despite that, the tech-rich Nasdaq staged a strong gain, as did small-cap and mid-cap stocks. After the close AMGN and TXN were the most notable names that reported after the close.
