Dow Jones Rallies On Cool CPI Inflation Data; Cathie Wood Sells $92 Million Of Tesla Stock

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose Tuesday on a cooler-than-expected CPI inflation reading. Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest sold a combined 393,000 shares of Tesla stock, worth about $92 million based on Monday’s closing prices.


May’s consumer price index rose 0.1% on the month, below the 0.2% estimate, with the annual inflation rate falling to 4.0%, below estimates expecting an ease to 4.1% from 4.9%. The core CPI, excluding food and energy, rose 0.4%, in line with forecasts, lowering the core inflation rate to 5.3% from 5.5%.

Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve’s two-day meeting also kicks off Tuesday. The Fed is widely expected to skip a rate hike at its two-day policy meeting that wraps up on Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET. The move would pause the 10 consecutive rate increases begun in March last year.

Finally, Oracle (ORCL) earnings came out late Monday, topping Wall Street’s estimates. ORCL stock jumped 5% in early trade. Shares closed Monday in the 20%-25% profit area from a 91.22 cup-with-handle buy point following a late-March breakout move.
