The U.S. stock market rose higher on Wednesday morning, adding to the gains made over the previous two days. The S & P 500 climbed 0.52% in advance of the Federal Reserve’s anticipated policy decision later that day. Investors expect the Fed to hold interest rates steady. However, the question is if it will continue raising them given that the recent increase in government bond yields have helped tighten financial conditions. The 10-year Treasury yield fell to just below 4.8% on Wednesday. DuPont, a club holding company, beat analyst revenue expectations by a small margin on Wednesday. Stocks fell by 4.8% as management cut its forecast for net sales and lowered its operating earnings before taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA). Jim Cramer, however, said he'd be a buyer at the current price of DD. Humana (HUM), another Club name, also reported a better-than-expected earnings, despite the stock falling by about 4% on Wednesday, after the company did not raise its outlook for the full year. Jim stated: "I believe Humana is an excellent company, and that the sellers have created a great opportunity." Estee Lauder, the club holding company, reported a disappointing quarter on Wednesday and again pushed back its timeline for expected turnaround. The prestige beauty company said that it has returned to growth in America, but it reduced its outlook for the year 2024 to reflect the slower rate of recovery in margins and sales due to continuing headwinds in China.
