Today's session started on a positive note after yesterday's comments from House Speaker Boehner were viewed as supportive. However, the Speaker held another press conference today at which he said no "substantive progress" has been made. The S&P 500 responded to Mr. Boehner's remarks by falling back to its flat line. The weakness did not last long, and the benchmark average was able to regain its losses to close higher by 0.4%.
Today after the close the following companies are scheduled to report earnings: AVGO, FIVE, MENT, MITL, OVTI, PSUN, SPLK, ULTA, YOKU, ZUMZ
