S&P 500 Stocks, Led By Exxon Mobil, Top 5 Stocks Near Buy Points

S&P 500 stocks Exxon Mobil (XOM), Delta Air Lines (DAL) and Qualcomm (QCOM) along with Dow Jones stock Boeing (BA) and Autoliv (ALV) are in focus this week.


With the market rally attempting to gain momentum, these stocks have earnings out of the way and give investors exposure options across different industries — including energy, semiconductors and airlines.

The Dow Jones isn’t far from its August and December highs, but has lagged in 2023 easing late in the week. The S&P 500 also declined on Friday.

Overall, industries are mixed with health insurers, oil and gas plays, pharmaceuticals and heavy equipment manufacturers all struggling. However, the tech and growth sectors are performing well in the current market, along with the broad housing, travel and auto sectors.

Earnings will still weigh heavy on the market next week. However, investors should keep an eye on these five stocks, with exposure to S&P 500 stocks and Dow Jones stocks, and the diverse industries they are part of.
