Stocks open mixed following Monday decline

CNBC's Bob Pisani looks ahead to the day's market action. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:
Stocks closed along the flatline on Tuesday as traders weighed higher rates, possible stimulus and political turmoil.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 60 points, or 0.2%, to 31,068.69. The Nasdaq Composite ended the day up 0.3% at 13,0720.43. The S&P 500 rose marginally to 3,801.19. Losses from major tech companies kept Tuesday’s moves in check.
Shares of Goldman Sachs rose 2.9% to lead the Dow higher. JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America were up 1.6% and 1.8%, respectively. Charles Schwab gained 1.6% and hit an all-time high.
The benchmark 10-year note yield traded briefly traded at 1.187%, its highest level since March, before easing back to 1.13%. The 30-year bond rate climbed to 1.88%, and also reached a March 2020 high.
“There has been a short-term tone shift in the market,” wrote Gregory Faranello, head of U.S. rates at AmeriVet Securities. “Markets have shifted in mindset as the Democratic ripple is digested short-term. The focus is now turning to growth and inflation and perhaps a combination of both.”
Rates have been rising since Democrats secured majorities in both the House and Senate, opening up the door for additional fiscal stimulus. Last week, President-elect Joe Biden promised an economic stimulus rollout, which he said will be “in the trillions of dollars.”
However, higher rates could make it more expensive for tech companies - which have been the market leaders throughout the pandemic - to keep growing their businesses through additional debt issuance.
Facebook fell 2.2%, and Alphabet slid 1.1%. Microsoft and Apple also lost more than 1%.
“When you think about the 10-year gradually working higher after spending most of last year below 1%, it raises questions about valuations, especially as it pertains to technology,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at National Securities.
The S&P 500′s forward price-to-earnings ratio was at 22.7, near its highest level since 2000. DoubleLine Capital CEO Jeffrey Gundlach pointed out on Monday that stock valuations are high relative to historical standards, and are being underpinned solely by stimulus measures from the Federal Reserve.
“We’ve been concerned that stretched valuation multiples could get more stretched, setting the stage for a meltdown,” wrote Ed Yardeni, CIO of Yardeni Research. “On the other hand, we are relieved to see corporate earnings continue to recover along with the US economy from the unprecedented two-month lockdown recession during March and April of last year.”
Stocks were coming off a losing session, with the major averages closing lower on Monday.
Last week, the major averages rallied to all-time highs as Wall Street shrugged off riots at the U.S. Capitol that led to the House Democrats introducing an article of impeachment on Monday against President Donald Trump for inciting the attack.
Since then, several social media companies have suspended or banned Trump from their platforms. In some cases, this has put pressure on their stocks. Twitter fell 2.4% on Tuesday, and is down 8.6% this week. Facebook has lost 6.2% week to date.

    Most investors will always tell you that there's no better time to invest in the financial market than now. I've been into trading for quite a while now, and I must say it really goes with loss without the right approach and strategy. I have gotten to the point where I understand that strategy is a key element of a long term successful trading. You can keep making wins at the beginning of a period and later you start recording losses toward the end of the trading period or even halfway. This results from little or no attention to the need for sustenance and consistency with the prevailing market structure. I've earned impressive profits so far this month trading with Mr. Ahire Vijay strategies and working with his trading signals and I do that through his registered trading investment company. You may never find it easy trading on your own. If you are tired of losing so much money, I recommend him. He's a really good trader.: Ahiretrading @ : w h a t s a p p + 1 5 8 5 6 6 6 1 3 3 1

      The secret to not being broke is having a steady income stream and that's impossible without passive investments. Currently, I earn around $20k monthly with stock trading through Mr Ahire Vijay. Expensive but definitely worth it.

    The major challenges investors face may range from controlling impulsiveness to the frail of compulsion. Most newbies and would-be investors often undermine and most often neglect the importance of technical analysis with regards to trading. Technical analysis overly predicts the movement of asset prices regardless of what is happening in the wider or broader market. Essentially, the process involves studying the paths of a particular asset movement in the past so as to establish a sustainable pattern that can be used to predict future movements. Permit me to say that, it’s is best advice you find a working strategy/daily signals that works well in other to accumulate and grow a very strong portfolio ahead. I have been trading with DR Benjamin keen's daily signals and strategy, him guidance makes trading less stressful and more profit despite the recent fluctuations. I was able to easily increase my portfolio in just 4weeks of trading with Ben keen daily signals growing 1.5 BTC to 6.7 BTC. His daily signals are very accurate and yields a great positive return on investment and is available to give assistance to anyone who love crypto trading, you can contact him on WhatsApp: +447-8621-00767 and Telegram : @ Ben_Keen* * for inquires and profitable trading systems...
