Tech growth plays led another solid session for the stock market rally, with Treasury yields and the dollar continuing to slide.

This has been a good week for investors to add exposure, but the risk of another market pullback is rising.
Aehr Test Systems (AEHR) reported fiscal Q4 earnings that modestly topped views, with revenue just beating. The chip-testing equipment maker, with exposure EV semiconductors, sees fiscal 2024 revenue up more than 50%, but perhaps just below views. AEHR stock climbed 4% in volatile overnight trading. Shares rose 3.7% to 141.43 on Thursday, extending a bounce from the 10-week line and back above a 40.69 prior buy point that’s no longer valid. AEHR stock has been consolidating for the past few weeks next to the top of a prior base.
JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), Citigroup (C), BlackRock (BLK) and UnitedHealth (UNH) are on tap early Friday. JPM stock is in a buy zone while BLK stock arguably is actionable. UNH stock and other health insurers are reeling in recent weeks.
