Dow closes more than 250 points higher as investors snap up energy and bank stocks, Nvidia slides 6%: Live updates

The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed Monday as investors sold big technology names in favor of other sectors such as banks and energy.

The Dow advanced 260.88 points, or 0.67%, to close at 39,411.21. The S&P 500 slid 0.31% to 5,447.87, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite declined 1.09% to 17,496.82. It was the worst day since April for the Nasdaq.

Information technology was the biggest declining S&P 500 sector for the day, falling more than 2%. Meanwhile, energy advanced 2.7%, and financials and utilities were up roughly 1%. Dow member JPMorgan Chase gained 1.3%, while Goldman Sachs and Chevron climbed more than 2% each.

Nvidia fell about 6.7%, adding to its 4% decline last week that snapped an eight-week winning streak. The pullback occurred after Nvidia briefly dethroned Microsoft as the most valuable company in the U.S. Chart analysts also pointed to bearish patterns in Nvidia's recent trading.

Despite the selloff, shares are still up nearly 140% for the year.

The pullback in Nvidia is "pretty healthy," according to Larry Tentarelli, chief technical strategist at Blue Chip Daily Trend Report.

"Last week and now, we're seeing a healthy rotation. This is actually a really nice pause in tech, and a rotation back into some of the other sectors that have been pulling back," he said.

The enthusiasm surrounding artificial intelligence has lifted the market significantly this year even as investors grappled with shifting expectations for rate cuts and a slowing economy. The S&P 500 has advanced 14% this year after notching 31 record closes. 

Investors will receive key inflation data this week in the form of May's personal consumption expenditure data. The Federal Reserve's preferred inflation gauge is set to be released Friday.

Stocks are coming off a record-setting week, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq notching fresh all-time highs as Wall Street heads into the final week of June and the end of the first half of 2024.

Gold could rally to $3,000 over the next 12-18 months, according to Bank of America

Gold prices could hit $3,000 per ounce over the next 12 to 18 months if demand increases among large institutional investors, according to Bank of America commodity strategists.

"We believe gold can hit $3,000/oz over the next 12-18 months, although flows do not justify that price level right now," the strategists wrote. "Achieving this would require non-commercial demand to pick up from current levels, which in turn needs a Fed rate cut to happen."

Dow outperforms

The Dow broke away from the other major indexes on Monday, boosted by Goldman Sachs and other rallying names.

The blue-chip average added more than 250 points in afternoon trading, a gain that equates to over 0.7%. The S&P 500 traded near its flatline, while the Nasdaq Composite slipped 0.7%.

Goldman Sachs added around 8 of those points. Amgen and United Health each contributed more than 5 points.

In all, more than two out of every three Dow members tracked for gains. Home Depot and Salesforce were among the small group of laggards, with each slipping by more than 3 points.

Fed's Daly says there's 'more work to do' before cutting rates

San Francisco Federal Reserve President Mary Daly on Monday said the central bank has made progress in its efforts to bring inflation down but can't let up yet.

"We've made a lot of progress, but there is still work to do," Daly said in remarks for a speech in her home district. "Monetary policy is working, but we need to finish the job."

There are multiple scenarios left to play out, with each in "the realm of reasonable," she added. They include a slow decline in inflation that would require a higher-for-longer approach on interest rates; a faster decline that would necessitate cuts, or a "gradual decrease and a rebalancing in the labor market, which would mean "we can normalize policy over time, as many expect."

"We need to be ready to respond to however the economy evolves," Daly said.

Affirm could rally 40%, according to Goldman Sachs

Affirm's best-in-class fundamentals are poised to give it a competitive edge over its peers, according to Goldman Sachs.

The bank assumed coverage of the stock at a buy rating and a $42 price target, which implies that shares could rally 40% from here.

As one catalyst, analyst Will Nance pointed to Affirm's differentiated approach to underwriting. Additional strengths include the company's track record of managing its revenue less transaction costs margins.

Oil prices rise 1% as Israel-Lebanon tensions simmer

Oil pumpjacks operate on July 31, 2023 in Los Angeles, California. 

Crude oil futures rose 1% Monday and are on pace to post a gain for the month, as signs point to strengthening gasoline demand in the US and geopolitical tensions flare again in the Middle East.

"The chief underlying reason behind the price strength, nonetheless, is the growing confidence that global oil inventories will inevitably plunge during the summer in the northern hemisphere," Tamas Varga, an analyst with oil broker PVM, said in a note Monday.

Ryan McKay, senior commodity strategist at TD Securities, said supply risks are now back in focus as tensions are building on the Israel-Lebanon border. Israel and the Iran-backed militia group Hezbollah have traded threats of war in recent weeks.

A tech sell-off could be 'more dramatic' due to CTA positioning, Bank of America says

Further signs of weakness in large tech stocks could spur a rash of selling by some large trading firms, according to Bank of America.

Analyst Chintan Kotecha said in a note to clients that commodity trading advisors — big players in the futures contract market — are unbalanced on Nasdaq 100 positions and could be quick to sell if there is a pullback.

"According to our models, CTAs are likely now back to very stretched levels of long positioning in NASDAQ-100 futures. With positioning at these levels, stop loss triggers become tighter and with the last two days' declines our models estimate pressure for CTA unwinds starting at levels 2.8% lower from Friday's close," the note said.

The CTA positioning, combined with the rising popularity of leveraged and inverse ETFs, could lead to "more dramatic 1-day drop," Kotecha wrote.

Deutsche Bank forecasts market lull as tech stocks top out, risk appetite slips

Deutsche Bank thinks equities could be headed for a slight breather as a multitude of negative catalysts coalesce.

"Fast forwarding, we see conditions in place for another breather, this time with concerns spanning all three elements of our demand-supply framework," strategist Parag Thatte wrote in a June 21 note.

The strategists framework encompasses "a sharp but narrow jump in positioning to near the top of its historical band, driven by tech; rising risk appetite which has prompted a boom in equity inflows but now looks stretched; a temporary diminishing of buybacks again as blackout periods ramp up next week ahead of the Q2 earnings season."

Cocoa is down almost 11% to a low of $7,901 per tonne. This marked the commodity's lowest level since May 27, when it traded as low as $7,869. Prices came under pressure on concerns that second quarter global cocoa demand reports scheduled for release next month will indicate record-high prices leading to demand destruction.

Year to date, cocoa is still up 88.4%, on pace for its best year back through 1980.

Fed's Goolsbee sees possibility that rates should come down

Chicago Federal Reserve President Austan Goolsbee said Monday that more soft readings on inflation would raise questions about whether interest rates are too high.

"If we get more months, like what we have just seen in the last month on inflation, coupled with slowing conditions in some of the other parts of the real economy, then you would have to start questioning should we remain as restrictive as we've been," Goolsbee said on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

Though he would not commit to when he thinks rate cuts would be appropriate, Goolsbee notehe is "hopeful" that the inflation rate is heading back to the Fed's 2% goal.

Goolsbee does not vote this year on the rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee.

Stocks remain overbought despite record highs and cash remains on the sidelines, says BofA's Suttmeier

The lack of market volatility on Wall Street is tied to seasonality, the 2024 election overhang as well as a robust amount of cash sitting on the sidelines, according to Bank of America chief equity technical strategist Stephen Suttmeier.

"I think the market is continuing to run-up because not enough people are on board with it," told CNBC's Suttmeier told CNBC's "Squawkbox" on Monday. "We've been staying overbought...and people hate chasing overbought markets, and I think that's the reason overbought markets continue to grind higher."

Suttmeier noted that the S&P 500 could hit the 5,600 level in a potential rally, and also said the benchmark index could climb as much as 20% in 2024.
